From Rich at Copywrite Ink:
"Sure, I think Nielsen would have been better off, years ago, partnering with cable companies and giving consumers the opportunity to opt in with the Nielsen ratings system, which would have increased the sampling size. But they didn't. And now it seems it is becoming more difficult for one of America's best known research companies to leapfrog to the next system while installing old media meters."
"I do loves me some cross-pollination on my favorite shows.
Episode 6 of Jericho’s Season 2 will be directed by Scott Peters, according to the official Jericho production blog.
Who’s he? None other than the creator of The 4400.
In other news, the Jericho crew goes through 15 to 20 pots of coffee and 25 cases of bottled water a day."

DVR Usage: Update
Hope this is clarification for all.
"Starting this TV season, DVRs will change Nielsen numbers"
"For the first time in the 60 years of commercial television, people who watch recorded shows will be counted side by side with those who watch them live. Nielsen will include DVR viewers this season when ranking the most popular TV shows."
Tuesday, September 11, 2007
There seems to be a huge misconception about Nielsen ratings that involve DVR's. Please do not rush out and get a DVR thinking you will be counted. You will not. Nielsen uses random samples when choosing who they monitor. They do not include every home as we well know by Jericho being canceled. Even if your cable or satellite provider sent information to Nielsen what would be the use since only Nielsen homes matter? The networks only rely on Nielsen.
Read the following- included is a message from someone who called Nielsen. It can't be made any plainer than this.
"If you are one of those people who watches most of your television time-shifted using your DVR, then you'll be interested in this news. For the first time in history, Nielsen Media Research - the organization relied upon by the TV networks and advertisers will be using a new ratings system called "live-plus-three-day commercial rating" that is changing Nielsen's methods in two ways. First, it measures TV viewership for commercial breaks instead of the entire TV program. Secondly, Nielsen will include TV viewership of a show over a three-day time period. This second change means if you time-shift TV shows and watch a show up to three days after it airs it will be counted as being viewed. In the past only those shows watched during the original airing date were counted."
"I just got off the phone with a Nielsen representative. According to the very nice lady, DVR usage is only measured for Nielsen families...not for the general public. While I'm sure this is disappointing to a lot of people on the board, let's just remember that Jericho is already one of the most DVR'ed shows out there. Also the Nielsen's new www.heynielsen.com is intended to let the general public interact with the ratings generator. Sign up as a beta member today!"
Send CBS a nice polite letter about your disappointment in them for their lack of Jericho promotion. Before you seal the envelope peel the label off of your peanut butter jar and enclose it in the envelope as a reminder of times past.
Yes, CBS, today its peanut butter jar labels.... tomorrow.... who knows. Jericho fans are capable of anything.

Jericho Promotion Month, September 2007
A Proclamation by Jericho Rally Point
It is DO OR DIE TIME for the promotion of Jericho..."It is vital that Jericho fans regain that motivation and passion that brought CBS to the decision to give fans seven more episodes. Fans need to recognize the historical achievements that they made four months ago and ensure that Jericho can count on them to do everything in their power to keep it alive."
NOW, THEREFORE, JERICHO RALLY POINT do hereby proclaim September 2007 as JERICHO PROMOTION MONTH. We call upon the people of the Jericho fandom to observe this month with the appropriate actions and activities comparable to those displayed from May 16- June 6, 2007. These activities include resuming the promotion of Jericho wherever you can, however you can. This is our last chance to show CBS that we are serious. We invite all the Jericho fans from all the boards, blogs and sites to join us to Promote Jericho (heavily) through the month of September 2007. Dust off some of the old ideas and share them with your fellow Rangers and lets make sure Jericho lives a long, long time.
