NielsenI won the lottery today! No, not the silly Powerball, or whatever everyone has been talking about. I won the Nielsen lottery! I've always wanted to have the Nielsen company contact me about my important opinions about what's good on TV. Today, they did! They sent me $5 and a survey to fill out with the promise of $5 more. They asked me how many people live here and my age. I answered everything honestly. I can only hope that they're desperately seeking the opinions of reclusive people in their late 40s who watch 1~2 hours of TV a day.

Maybe I should have lied. I hope I didn't blow my one and only chance to have my opinions finally matter.

Oh, how I'd love to be the final vote that puts a knife through the heart of every multi-camera, laugh-tracked sitcom in prime time. I would single-handedly bring back Firefly and Jericho to fill their place. 

In the box where they asked my favorite network or show, I put "The Walking Dead." If you listen hard enough, you can hear my survey answers being shredded right now.
