There is a very distinct difference between ABC and NBC that both
networks admit. NBC gears there programming towards a middle class, mature
audience, while ABC aims their programming at a younger in age, lower to
middle class audience. Since the second of the two groups is the majority
percentage of Americans watching TV, ABC tends to do better in the Nielson
ratings. However, when it comes to actual awards, NBC and CBS usually
always beat out ABC. So, the number of viewers isn't correlated with
the quality of programming. An excellent example of this is the show
"Picket Fences", which airs Friday nights at 10 on NBC. Critics and
"awards people" (for lack of the proper term) absolutely LOVE this show...
but every single week it finishes last in its time slot and doesn't do
all that well in the Nielsons. Why is this? Because the majority of
television viewers (young people, low-middle class) don't want to watch
this show. The show is at a level in which these people cannot appreciate.
So, ABC may be getting the viewers, but by far it does not have the
quaulity of programming that NBC and CBS show every year.
So you like the Awfully Bad Crap network eh? Full House is just sooooo good.
I can't wait to watch Family Matters. Please. How pathetic.
*cut the crap*
This has nothing to do with alt.seinfeld. It's only TV, for christsake! If
you want to watch ABC, go ahead, we're not going to stop you!!! If you don't
like Seinfeld, don't read this group! i.e. - go away you dumbas*!!
They won't let me have my .sig license back - just because I ran over those
people at the bus stop! :-(
