    This is somewhat helpful, but then again, not really helpful in regards to the game.

    Increases or decreases due to a repeat airing do not count for value changes. For example, NCIS went up in relation to the last aired episode (a repeat), but actually went down in comparison to the last NEW episode which aired on Dec 2nd.

    Some shows, such as Bones and Desperate Housewives, don't get any points for their repeats outside of their original time slot. Both are now essentially on Fridays in repeats for their regular time slot, but since it isn't where new episodes last aired, they don't count for any points.

    SFTV, I agree. You need to look beyond these numbers for game purposes, but they are useful starting points in many cases. Also, it's meant for our general audience as well, not exclusively TVBigshot players.

    This gives a good general idea of what the show standings are. Glad it is posted for all to review. :}

    The drop for Sarah Connor Chronicles was spectacular.

    I give points to Peter Liguori for bucking the trend and not reflexively claiming a “hit” when he knew he probably didn't have one.

    Didn't know exactly what I was looking at, at first. But after a little time, you can see where things are going, to some degree.

    Problem is, by the time you get this, it's too late for the contest. However, it does help predict if one of 'your shows' is in trouble or not and if it might be cancelled.

    If the list would mention whether it was a rerun or not or scheduled at a different time, that would help. Any chance?
