having worked for Nielsen, I just want everyone to know that it’s a common misconception that the ratings have anything to do with the shows themselves. the ratings have to do with who is watching the advertisements during the shows. that’s all they or the tv networks care about. if the people the tv networks want to watch and advertise to aren’t watching the show, the amount of viewers doesn’t matter. if you don’t fall into the desired demo bucket, your view is a waste.
(it is good to call out the Nielsen families here, though. if you know a Nielsen family or are part of one, it’s because you are the best average representation of your community. crazy stuff, huh?)

Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
