In this case, I believe it is a combine male/female 18-49. In either event, if a majority of the 8-10 Mil viewers are outside the demo, the show ain't gonna make it. The advertisers want the eyeballs of the buying public. They pay the bills.
I have a friend who also believes that total viewers should count for something. I wish that was the case, but it seems not.
If all 8-10 mill viewers were 1 thru 17 and 50 thru 999, the show would be canceled because the 18-49 demo rating would be zero. They don't care that the rest of us spend money, we just don't spend it on their products.
