People expect things for free nowadays, but people have to put food on the table.

Ironically, it’s the “DVR Generation” that skips commercials that caused this. Stuff’s gotta get paid for. Regular people work on the show, too.

I want to see the show survive, and paying CBS will help.

Trek fans cite “IDIC”, but “IDIC” falls apart when money is on the line.

Shortly before Fontana’s report, NBC had replaced its old Nielsen rating system with a new and updated one. When they ran the original figures through their new system they found out much to their surprise that it had not only reached full penetration into their most coveted target audience, the male population between 18 and 45, but also that the series had been one of the most successful series the network had ever aired.
