OMG…. The Ratings Are Down !!
…. because Tuscaloosa and Clemson are both Deep South Deliverance towns that no one in New York, Boston, Chicago or Los Angeles can find on a map.
Supposedly there are X number of TVs in living rooms across America that have gizmos that tell some Master Computer somewhere what that TV is tuned to every hour of every day. Those gizmos supposedly gives all sorts of demographic data to that Master Computer that tells “the Networks” not only how many people watched what program but what gender and ages those people are.
How do it know whether the husband – or the wife – or their teenage kids controlled the remote for that program. How do it know if one or more of those people became a year older last week and are now in a different “desired age group” ?
I think “they” is some modern day version of The Wizard of Oz geek behind a curtain in a refurbished Tomahawk missile silo in deepest darkest Iowa.
So…. “They” – Whoever “they” are – come up with these ratings numbers…. and poobahs at networks PANIC based on “overnights”. “Overnights” being the first set of these bogus numbers the Wizard spits out before the confetti hits the field.
They Say…. the semi-finals ratings were “down” too. Some dimwitted dweeb named Bill Hancock put them on New Years Eve because he is afraid of some pencilnecks in Pasadena that run The Rose Bowl.
Now That Wizard Geek in Iowa says the Alabama / Clemson ratings were down.
Maybe the ratings were down because Tuscaloosa and Clemson are both Deep South Deliverance towns that no one in New York, Boston, Chicago or Los Angeles can find on a map.
Let’s change Alabama’s nickname to The Fighting Irish Yankee Cowboys in Red Sox …. and change that goofy Clemson coach’s name to Dabo Kardashian. That oughta up those ratings…. by golly.
Til next time ….
