Perhaps I didn't communicate my point very well at all. I am assuming you believe ratings mean something to PBS and SS in the same way they mean something to for profit networks and shows. They simply do not. The ratings are a measurement used to set ad rates. Since PBS doesn't have ad rates the ratings are useless to them in that way. They do use the ratings in an evaluative manner to measure the impact of their content and help them make changes to stay relevant (stay on air essentially). They certainly do not put Katy Perry on their show in skimpy clothes to increase ratings since increasing the ratings in such a manner is useless to them. It provides them no value or insight. They don't get more money from advertisers because of high ratings. All ratings do for them is help measure whether what they are doing is popular. They're smart enough to know a bump in ratings because of the Katy Perry flap doesn't give them any data to make decisions on content.

Thats funny. I remember when my nephew got one for Christmas everyone was saying he got his first woody and he was running around asking people if they wanted to see his woody. I'm sure that was no accident when they named that toy.

Re: Katy Perry pulled from Sesame Street

Why the hell do we even still have PBS and NPR? Its not like we have a void in childrens programing or bad programs. If the show or program is not good enough to stand on its own then it should fail. Why should my tax dollars be used for this when there is plenty of free TV and other programs on TV and radio.

I am curious, is my obsession sorta like Eminem's with Mariah Carey or yours with the Obamas?

p.s. We really shouldn't give out pwnage points for pwing Buster. It doesn't feel right.

Probably. None that I would hang with but you know the pussyfoot types where the wife runs the show and has a hyphenated (sp) name.
