Back to the ordinary [Feb. 8th, 2007|10:19 pm]
Our week as a Nielsen family is over. We recorded the Heroes and Lost and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip love for posterity, and sent our booklets back in the mail this morning.

The only downside - I did not consider that not only would I have to record the sad fact that I let my 5-year-old watch The Simpsons, but that I would also have to record the even sadder fact that I watch Lawrence Welk.

Fire bad. TV Pretty.

I'm loving "Heroes"! Can't wait until my oldest is old enough to watch it. For me, being a Nielson family wouldn't just be the embarrassment of what we watch, but the sheer volume. I think the only time our TVs are off is when we're away from home. And even then, I wouldn't be surpised if they secretly turned themselves on and scrolled through the Tivo listings.

BTW - I have checked out your site so many times to see how to sign up for your blog so that I can get an email notice when you update it. How do I do it? I don't want to miss a second of your fabulousness!

Oops. I guess I should have said that it's me, Chairmanmeow. I mean I'm sure there are millions of people who don't want to miss out on your fabulousness. I'm just the most recent.

Re: Fire bad. TV Pretty.

Ha! We watched Beer Bad just a couple of weeks ago (We plowed through seasons 3 & 4 at breakneck speed and are now working on season 5...)

I was amazed at how little TV we actually watch, because it seems like it's on all the freaking time...but apparently we mostly watch DVDs (see previous paragraph) which we didn't have to log. Too bad, because then Nielsen could have seen the Buffy/Firefly/Godzilla love.

I have no idea how to send an email notice on update...I'll look through LJ and see, but maybe it's a paid feature thing?
