The steps are a radical change for Nielsen, reflecting an overall paradigm shift that's shaking up the television world. The audience is taking control. And TV companies are scrambling to catch up.
This reflects a change in how Nielson's gathering statistics, nothing more, nothing less. What paradigm shift? What control over television companies does the audience have now that they didn't have before?

I'm sure they're a valuable population statistic, but please don't let their viewing habits have too much weight in the overall viewing summary. I don't want every network to be (more) stacked with Dharma and Greg clones...
