    ? Indeed.

    I notice that though that was the lowest rated Oscars in years, it still was top of the week.

    Nothing on a weekly basis is going to top 30 million viewers, with the exception of maybe CSI or Grey's Anatomy in their heydays or an American Idol finale.

    My take is the preponderance of reality TV is a lingering side effect of the writer's strike.

    do we count dvr and tivo now in the ratings? Cause I have a few shows on dvr, like The Office, Lost, Greys anatomy, Criminal minds.

    I just don't have the time anymore, to watch them when they first air and I'll usually watch them when I get home or the next day. I love dvr, no commericals.
