What you don't think your cable box reports that to them?

some of us still don't use a cable box.... at least so far, I am able to watch 'unboxed' via a QAM tuner in my tv, or a digital tuner in my dvr.

Why would Nielsen care what Comcast logs? If I'm Nielsen I am going to take the data from my pool of carefully selected sample points, not accept data from any specific vendor or other 3rd party.

You really think nielsen is the only ratings that matter anymore?

Comcast/DTV/ect also own networks of their own and put ads on other channels, you think they price those just off nielsen?

Still have the last 2 episodes to watch. I'm avoiding reading the last bunch of posts until then.

Wow... finally watched the finale.... I must say it left me sad, but satisfied.

I do feel that the writers jumped around quite a bit in the last few seasons though. The show had more of a realistic feel to it in the earlier seasons, then jumped to William Bell creating genetically mutated creatures and trying to create his own universe and destroy ours int eh process while using Olivia as the catalyst, then the next season deals with the alternate universe and then the machine, then Peter being erased from existence, then they just conveniently bring him back with no real solid explanation, we are just supposed to accept that he's back because he had such an indelible footprint in the hearts/minds of others?! Then now all of a sudden we flash forward 21 years into the future and it's this whole Observers Invasion storyline???! Then on top of that we miss the whole Peter/Olivia romance and getting married, and her getting pregnant and having a child stuff?! WTF?!

I know exactly what you mean. Each season seemed to take off in a different direction from the last. The story arcs were seasonal instead of being carried over from year to year. I kind of enjoyed that though.

I do wish we got to see more of Olivia and Peter's story, but what we did get was pretty good.
