We're a Nielsen Family!



Wait? You thought our name was Miller? Ha! Seriously though, a few weeks ago we got a phone call from the people at Neilsen asking us if we would be a part of their ratings collection process. Uh, duh! I only love TV more than any one person should. If there was a way to volunteer myself to let the networks know the shows which I adore, I would have been first in line. Turns out, my devotion must be legendary. I mean really, they sought ME out. ;-)

Wait--in case you don't what Neilsen is, they are only the oldest and best known media research company in the history of the boob tube. Doy.

Um, where were we. Okay, so, this week I received our family packet. It has diaries for every TV in the house and all you have to do is write down what you watch on each TV for 8 days and our time starts May 1st. La, la, la. I can't wait. There's even a way to write down what you watch on your DVR versus just actually channel surfing. I am already mapping out my 8 days so that all of my favorite shows get their worthy props in the eyes of the TV gods.

Know what else the packet had? $30! In cash, no less. Yes, I get to watch TV until my eyes bleed, someone actually cares that I'm watching The Hills, and I'm paid to do it.

This must be what heaven is like....
