All I ever objected to is that the %60 jump lasted longer than one story, but you somehow decided that I was saying that the %60 percent bump never happened, which is silly.
Well, your saying, "It's not clear that she brought new fans to the show," probably led me to believe that.

But they aren't really new "fans" if they don't stay around, are they? They're just people who checked it out thanks to the hot blonde in the advertising.

Re: Why Janeway is the Worst Star Trek Captain!

Or maybe Jeri gained the show 2 million new fans in season 4 as 3 million old fans left... Or did all 5 million Kes loving loyalist march out in disgust, as 4 million Borgophiles started setting up camp?

It's not clear, means that we don't know the ratio of how many new people turned up for Scorpion, as the old fans were abandoning the series, but since the over all numbers were going down, the more fanboys and fangirls who were only in it for Seven, who only started watching Voyager for Seven, it's a mathematical truth that an even greater number of couch potatoes were abandoning Star Trek.

And then there's converts. Frakkers who would have left, but chose to stay because of Seven... And what about the 2 guys that left because they hated Jeri Ryan?

If you have a 60% jump in one episode, some always stay around. Take a look at Tabachnick's Using Multivariate Statistics, and Tracking the Audience: The Ratings Industry.

Re: Why Janeway is the Worst Star Trek Captain!

Are you forgetting the 4 months, and million dollar force de jore ad campaign it took to generate that %60 abnormality in the ratings?

Besides, all the sexists pigs who arrived to autoabuse themselves to the promised masturbatory aid from the marketing literature, a hot blonde in the silver cat suit, might have been mildly repulsed by the veiny, rotting, bald, Frankenstein, cyborg who presented herself for their depraved titillation in Scorpion.

Sometimes we all come home from the DVD store with the wrong porn.

It makes absolutely no difference how they got them to watch. That is why they spend so much on campaigns: Some are going to stay. Let me quote myself from an answer to teacake, "If you have a 60% jump in one episode, some always stay around. Take a look at Tabachnick's Using Multivariate Statistics, and Tracking the Audience: The Ratings Industry."

Most people have problems with statistics and very large numbers.

All we know for sure is that they lost Lynx.

Re: Why Janeway is the Worst Star Trek Captain!

I wonder if Jennifer Lien asked Lynx if he wanted to spend a weekend over at her house with her family, working their way through the season 4 boxset of Voyager, what his reply to that question would be?

Isn't that like asking if god can make a rock so heavy he can't lift it?

Re: Why Janeway is the Worst Star Trek Captain!

The Trinity proscribes a division of labour that facets of god can perhaps have different strengths.

The Holy Ghost is the mule of this collective.

The Holy Ghost can lift anything the other two can create.

But it would look like those holostretchers in STID when he did it.

That's what Lynx needs if he wants to have his Kes both ways, invisibility. But then she might not remember to pass him the lemonade.

God knows better than to cameo through another Star Trek movie.

I just shudder to think how healthy Jennifer's s'mores would be.

Shredded wheat is a criminal substitute for marshmallow.

Re: Why Janeway is the Worst Star Trek Captain!

Marshmallows aren't that unhealthy for you. They have no fat and no cholesterol. There are only about 25 calories in each giant american marshmallow which means the ones I can buy have less than half that. They are mostly just egg, sugar and air.

I wonder if you can make marshmallows out of TOFU.
