    I love Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. They did announce their last season earlier this year - I am happy to know both will have the opportunity to end their stories properly!

    The actors of Jane the Virgin should go on to do another show together. Just like a telenovella, si?

    I cannot imagine that the show could possibly attract any significant number of new viewers. There's just nothing that could occur at this point that would make that happen.

    I don't think they have to be "new" viewers. Just existing viewers switching to live viewership. But I also seriously doubt it. I suspect they will make a deal with some other competitor (Amazon, etc.) before then anyway.

    I'm taking the more practical approach and still not watching live because honestly if that's the only way the show is going to work, it's doomed to fail, because it's a show meant for binge-watching, IMO.

    What they need to do is find a handful of Nielsen families and convince them to watch live. That will increase the ratings dramatically.

    Heck, I don't watch any show live nowadays except for sports so they're going to have to be happy with me watching The Expanse one or two days after it airs.

    The suits at SyFy should be embarrassed for even thinking about canceling The Expanse and should be banned from the industry for life if they do.

    Well, no.

    They should be embarrassed for making such a lousy deal. But given the deal they have, they have to decide whether they can afford to keep the show. And apparently, they can't.

    My secret hope is that this is all just a ploy to get the show's owners to cut a better deal, and that everything will be resolved in the end...

    :eek::eek: LIVE?!?!:eek::eek:

    I don't care how much I like a show. I would never watch it live. That would be like going back to the 70's. there is no way I would want to watch TV the way I did back then.

    Since the mid eighties I have been time shifting my TV watching and avoiding commercials. I really like the Expanse but the most I would do is pay $3 to watch an episode from Vudu or Amazon. I would rather watch no TV than watch it live with commercials.

    The only show I watch semi live is Survivor. I wait until 15 to20 minutes into the show to start watching, by the time I catch up the show has just ended.

    What does "live" mean in a Neilsen context? Not using the DVR at all? Watching during the same hour? Same evening?

    There are separate metrics for live, live+SD (same day), live+3, live+7.

    Personally, I think any advertiser who rewards anything other than live is silly.

    Makes not a bit of difference if you are not a Nielsen family.
