Have you been a "Nielsen family" in the last two years?
I was actually contacted by them several months ago, and (you're damn right) we filled out a couple of diaries for them.
Anyone else? ... I have a bet.

8. That's the info they need,
They got a very diverse diary from this household.
C-SPAN. Nascar. Cartoon Network.

I'm sure they were perplexed.

they did replace everything.
They put this stupid monitoring equipment on my TV and the associated equipment so that we wouldn't have to keep a diary...

They dumped us after they discovered we didn't watch much TV.. just PBS and news...hahahaha

We tend to watch more movies or are busy reading...

6. as far as I know they do it randomly
you get the call...and then they swear you to secrecy because technically they don't want anyone to know that you are part of their network...they are afraid that someone may pay you to watch a program...

7. Yes. I had a diary for a few weeks.
I filled up the comment space in the back with a long diatribe on how insipid reality television was, and how I refused to watch Fox anymore because The Swan offended me.

They haven't contacted me since. I probably wasn't the viewer they were interested in.
