I'm not going to continue arguing with you over this because, and you need to face it, NO ONE CARES. As a person who has worked in international marketing I have to tell you this too: the chances of overseas numbers meaning much of anything are slim unless the ratings in China and the United Kingdom are astronomical meaning that it is the number one show (oh I'll be nice lets say top ten) for the year. It's not going to happen.
BTW, one last thing, Friedman is not employed by FOX in any way shape or form. He works for Warner Brothers, which meant that the information he was getting came from them.
Good luck to you because you're going to need it.
