Please Pray (or whatever) For the Poor Souls at Nielsen Media Research

UPDATE:

http://communities.msn.com/dasMonkey/shoebox.msnw

Unfortunately, I should have known that these ass masters would resize my images so they're impossible to read. I'll have to find a better site, but that's the general idea. Nothing fancy, but for a psycho TV-aholic like me, I thought it was pretty interesting.


Well, it's official. I just submitted my Nielsen TV Viewing Diary for the most recent premiere week. I'm sure if you read my posts, you know I watch just a tad too much television ... and I wrote it all down. I had to stop halfway through because my hand was hurting too much. It's going to take those poor suckers hours to go through all the paperwork and extra attachments I sent them, but they asked .

Anyway, I scanned the paperwork so those who are interested can see what the Nielsen Diary looks like. They've upped their "thank you" to $5.00 from $1.00, and from what I've heard, they may be moving to $8.00 or $10.00. If anyone wants me to post the pics, let me know, and I'll try to get them up somewhere this weekend.

I'd kind of like to see a scan as I am not really familiar with what it looks like. (If it isn't too much trouble, of course )

Nah ... I just need to find a good place to host the images and resize them so they're not 10 megs each Didn't want to make the effort if I was the only crazy person who was interested in this stuff.

I was in heaven when they called me to ask if I'd fill out a Nielsen book. Unfortuately it was for june, so no new shows, but it still felt great to be "counted" on behalf of the shows I love. I agree that they must have suffered as much trying to read my chicken-scratch handwriting as I suffered writing it - TONS of writing, lol.

Though I doubt it's going to be an issue for you, das monkey, just do whatever you can do to keep ENTERPRISE riding high in the ratings...

Well, I listed that I had 8 "Visitors" during 'Fight of Flight' and the 'Buffy' premiere. Households are more important, but maybe it will have a small impact.
