all the dismal details from Douglas himself.
I noticed that one link to Douglas' blog in the sidebar - the April 14-20 GSN ratings - was no longer working. Luckily, all the other ratings lists are still intact, but we may not get any more GSN ratings in the future. At least not complete lists.
As Douglas notes, he always acknowledges the Nielsen Company on every post. It seems pretty persnickety to force the lists off his blog, especially because they were the best advertising Nielsen could want. Also, the lists only gave total viewer numbers. There wasn't any detailed demo information, which is what really drives advertising sales.
Here's hoping that Douglas finds a way to continue providing his ratings info. I've always been interested in the numbers - natch, I'm an actuary - and it's annoying that the copyright cops came calling. Especially when the cops seem to be acting against their own best interests.
UPDATE: Speaking of GSN ratings, American Bible Challenge helped the network to a prime time average of 512K viewers last night. Good for GSN but nowhere near the record high ratings the show has gotten before.
