I don't see the correlation between quality and ratings. In fact, if there is one, it's probably negative for the most part. While little watched shows like The Wire get canceled, shows like According To Jim and America's Top Model go on and on. I just feel lucky that we've gotten four seasons of Battlestar Galactica. Thoughtful, intelligent television is all to rare.
There really isn't one. Shows like CSI:Miami get great ratings, but I dare anyone to tell me that watching David Caruso putting on his shades and spouting corny one-liners is high quality stuff. It isn't, but it's a popular show. And popular shows get mega-ratings. It's rare to find a quality show with fantastic ratings. There are some out there IMO, but not as many as the popular shows.

Correction; most of the world is stupid.

The Neilsen system doesn't help, though...

Yep. CSI:Miami is an international hit. Like Baywatch before it.

Re: Ratings are in !

The 1.1 rating posted above is the national rating, not the coverage rating. The coverage rating should be a 1.3 this week.

Never the less, it's a 16% drop in viewers and 18% among adults 18-49. Not good.

I'll post a chart shortly.

Re: Ratings are in !

Here's the chart.



Note: I'm assuming a 1.3 coverage rating for the show this week, that could be wrong, though it shouldn't be off by more than +/- 0.1 points.

A couple other notes: The Mini-Series is counted as two episodes, season one opened with two episodes the first week (one rating for the two hours), same goes for season three and the same goes for the TV Movie "Razor".

Re: Ratings are in !

Hmm, I'm curious how this will continue - an upswing as in S1 after a drop for the second (or third, for that matter) episode, another decline or simply the same.

I won't argue with the stupid part. But I'll say most people lack taste and, for various reasons, tend to shy away from entertainment that challenges them.

Thanks for those! I remember that the figure for the S2 premier was unusually high and thus the drop was rather steep.
It's interesting that the drop for S1 and 3 was pretty similar. The S4 drop is quite a bit more substantial. It's down to the level of S3 again, pretty much IIRC.

No problem. Here are the season and miniseries averages:

Miniseries - 3.20
Season 1 - 2.37
Season 2 - 1.97
Season 3 - 1.36 (no difference w/wo "Razor" included)
Season 4 - 1.45

Overall (with mini) - 1.87
Overall (witout mini) - 1.81
