/Thinks it was interesting that when ratings were good it was a sign of how great BSG is...when they are in the toilet...they're meaningless.
To be honest, I always thought they were meaningless. I was happy when they were high because it made the chances of the series getting renewed go up, but I don't honestly think they are an indication of the shows actual quality at all.
