    I wonder if the ratings services have factored in the quantity of viewers who dropped paid television service from the previous sample taken. I did. I know many with no access to those closed networks.

    For the first time, I was able to watch the Sundance Awards online. If they want people to see their shows, streaming is going to have to go around so everyone can watch & know what these shows are about.

    I would love to watch the SAG Awards but if its not online, I don't watch. I do not have cable and don't have the money for it. Cable is going to have to stream their stuff online if they even want people to start talking about their shows. I watched Damages and The Shield online because I won't pay for cable.

    . . . . and I don't pay for Hulu Plus. I watch the regular Hulu. With this job market, I'd have to get another job just to pay to watch cable/Hulu Plus/Netflix. I'm not doing that in this horrible Polar Vortex we're all in this winter.
