Question Explain to me this ratings game

Hello fellow dreams watchers! The thing that I don't understand is this. Not every show can be the "best" show or the highest rated show. Do they take this into consideration when they consider keeping the show on the air or not. When our show starts going up against Lost or Survivor, what do they consider? Do they want to see our show get as many viewers as possible that do not already watch these other high rated shows? Or do they want to see our show blow all of these other widely watched shows out of the water and steal their viewers. If that is the case, I don't think it is very fair. As I said not every show is going to be the "best" show and as long as our show has a following (which it does), I really hope they consider giving something to everyone.

As much as I like the few dramas and sitcoms on tv.I know they'll never blow Survivor out the water because people rather watch untrue reality trash than dramas and sitcoms and since fake reality tv is a biggie networks rather premote that trash than any of the dramas and sitcoms.Reality tv is trash and it should be killed down and so should the people whom produce them.Its not fair because some us don't like reality trash like myself.So they really should be fair to everyone and not just people whom watch fake reality tv trash Reality tv=Trash in my opinion..Mel

Talking

I think Dreamwatcher is right. As long as AD has a following although small compared to crap shows like Survivor they should keep it going. I also thought if big networks like NBC wants to pass can't it go to a smaller network like WB,PAX, or something similar? The few people I have talked to at work who also watch and like AD are upset that this show may be ending.
