    You people talking about watching it to help the ratings, do you even know how TV ratings work?

    Hes probably going to mention the Nielsen boxes like he did in the RIT.
    But that's not the only way ratings are tracked now. I know Direct TV tracks them, and then gives the information to Nielsen. I think Comcast does it as well.
    So really, its hit and miss if you will help. If you have your box hooked up the the internet, its a good chance you will be counted.

    Cite your references on the Direct TV and Comcast thing.

    Is it really that important? You cant just believe that a satellite box connected to the internet can send back information on what you are watching?
    Fine....
    Here is an article on Direct TV getting a patent for a real time rating system. Hell, the Direct TV website has the option to opt out of 'all home based viewing data collection'.
    This one explains that Comcast will be offering personalized show recommendations to customers. A logical jump would be that they track what you watch.

    yes, it really is that important because I'm curious, and from what I understand the ratings bureaus will not accept joe-blow's-cable-company's data. It has to be officially sanctioned

    Was that patent from DirecTV ever implemented?

    Also in-company data collection =/= numbers presented to advertisers.

    I really hope it does well. It would be great if they could start getting more shows. Deadman Wonderland looks like a good start. Definitely will be watching tonight!

    I know quite a few people hated deadman wonderland, but I liked it. Maybe that'll change once I read the manga though.

    Urgh, hour and half left to go. Why do they need to show 3 hours of crap before this happens?

    Well, it only took them a whole decade....., curious if Toonami will hit up here also eventually, assuming they don't cancel it again as there's some shit they air that I want to see. Regardless, will be nice to have a channel that actually airs Venture Brothers at some point in time that isn't 2AM.

    Anime is pretty much dead on Canadian cable/satellite providers.
