    And you still have to watch it, or have it playing. Neilson identifies shows by matching the audio feed to the television with the show. So putting it in a DVR alone won't do.

    Sometimes I think I've seen more shows with transgenders than I've seen actual transgenders.

    Good luck though.

    To be clear for anyone interested: I of course would LOVE to write for a cool, edgy cable show, and those are the kind of shows I pitch when I'm in the room trying to get my own shows made - and, as I've said, cable or streaming shows are pretty much exclusively the shows I watch. But there's something to be said for a network show from my perspective, namely it pays a hell of a lot better and you reach a far bigger audience. (For the most part.)

    The most important thing here, though: Even if you're not interested in network shows or in THIS PARTICULAR NETWORK SHOW, it would be awesome and helpful and appreciated if you DVRd it or watched or spread the news to folks in your life who maybe ARE open to network programming. Thanks!

    I get it. It's scary in concept, but in actuality you'll get out there, meet people, go to Sonny McLeans to watch the pats and Red Sox, and you'll find your way. You'll find a community, all it takes is a little effort. And if you're young, turn nothing down. Get in some place on the lowest rung, then be excellent at whatever your role is, and make yourself indispensible and be EASY.

    You're not wrong. And I probably watch what you watch - and don't watch what you don't watch! But if you wouldn't mind just spreading the word to friends or parents...setting the old DVR...it would help.

    I used to think that, but it's not quite accurate. DVR numbers are trackable for us, so it def helps.

    Lol, yes, by all means, let's stigmatize social justice! Amazing. Thanks for considering it anyway.

    It's definitely new to me, as well. I suspect you've been in the presence of transgender people more often than you realize. It's been a fascinating experience for me learning about it. One thing I'll say for Doubt, it's not in any way an exploitive nod. The show creators son came out to them as transgender a few years ago. Interesting, complicated and challenging stuff. (And not all that much to do with our storylines. Which is, in my view, a refreshing take for TV, network or otherwise.)

    Regarding DVRing a show and Nielsen ratings: I read somewhere that if a person watches within three days then it still counts towards Nielsen ratings, but networks want that pushed up to seven days.

    Unfortunately it is a moot point unless you have a Nielsen box in your home.

    The best thing you can do to help JC out is talk about the show with your friends, co-workers, etc. Eventually it will filter from one of us to somebody that currently has one of those black boxes, which represents thousands of viewers.
