I do not know alot about how the ratings work, but from what I have been reading on this forum, I am getting the impression that all of our live viewings are monitored in some way by our cable provider or some rating system that can see what is being watched live. I have watched every episode live but this past Wed. I had to DVR as I was away from home. Consequently, the ratings dropped. So, I am watching live this Wednesday. LETS ALL DO THIS! Lets commit to watching live on Wed and get the ratings up! Without you, the show cannot succeed! The more that watch, the better the show does. And maybe, just maybe if it succeeds, they will listen to what we all want to see on the show. I love it and want it to continue. Commit to this Wed. folks!
