Can someone point me to an ACTUAL market research study that shows that people in Eastern Iowa care more about high school sports and Cyclone Women's basketball than they care about High-Def Primetime programming? I'd like to see the report, so that I can lobby the research firm to include a realistic study group in the future.
I'm getting pretty ratty reception over sd cable tonite - attribute to all the moisture, probably oozing into the dried out connectors all along the path from head-end to my house....
I'll agree, and disagree. As soon as I saw Leno in all the beauty of sd 4x3, I TURNED IT OFF.
(bold so the marketing dept bozos hired by the new owners can see it.) yup - all the local parents with kids on the teams will watch, so I doubt if it'll change.
But Mr Client - while I am stuck living in what you so knowingly lable "Hawkeye Country," there are more than a few ISU alums in the area. And/or ISU fans. And I'll gladly miss "Dancing with the Stars" or "Wife Swap" if it means I get to watch the Clones play. (they are sd anyway, I think - lord knows I've never watched them.
) But I agree - it's going to be REALLY
hard to give up "Ugly Betty," just to see if the new coach will help the Cyclones. Yeah - imagine me weighing the choices, like the statues of Justice - Clones vs. Kansas in one hand, "Help Me Help You" in the other.
Can't get too excited or worried about those choices. Why not rave about all of the CBS shows that are going to get shifted to SD hell after midnight, just so you can see Alford?
Me - I'm happy - afaik
, KWWL does no sports, so The Office and Earl will be unmolested. If they would do the same with Leno, I'd be fine.
