Ratings. Need to know ASAP.......

How do the tv people determine ratings?

Do they count the viewers that set their Dvr to record it?

Do they count the viewers that delete the recorded Dvr instead of watching it?

Do they only count the people that watch it live?

  • company has boxes that record what and when and how much people watch
    not everyone
    just people that have been randomly chosen
    neilson i think is name

    knew someone who had this box (and he was blind- all sorts of different people chosen)
    and knew women who set this up with families
    i think they got a small check for taking part in this
    people selected randomly- do not know how they do this

    google may know

  • Every tv has a chip in it, and when you choose to watch a certain program it records it on the chip.
    The govt. can then see what you're watching and rate it according to your age group.
