What do they mean by household? Is it 4 people per household or something?

I hope Dan Pleasac is hit by a car in the next week or so. That's all I have to say about the Cubs Postgame Show....

Seriously?

Why don't you read up on Nielsen Ratings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nielsen_Ratings). They determine the popularity of television programs.

But seriously? You've never heard that a TV show or network draws the highest ratings or anything like that? Did you think they were just making it up?

:?:

I've always been fine with Plesac, he can seem dull at times however unlike Kaplan he's not shy at complimenting the white sox. I never watch Cubs post game live, but the times that he's been on CTL, when they've discussed the Sox he's always been a big supporter of the Sox in the Central. He's fair to both sides of town which I like.

Yes, I've heard of the nielsen thing. but I've never seen actual proof of this though. Has anyone here ever had any input? That's why I question it. I don't live in the city, perhaps that's who they survey?

Nevermind.

Is anyone's pulse under 160?

Here comes the scary part. The Twins dinkie hitters are up. This might be where the ball somehow hits their bat and they get those stupid annoying hits.
