No, Kurt Sutter and I didn’t meet, but we were both interviewed on an NPR report that aired today called “Advertisers Push Nielsen To Count Online Viewers”. Unlike the NPR hour I linked to yesterday, it’s only 3.5 minutes long, and I’m right at the beginning. If you’ve read this site more than a few days, I doubt anything I say will surprise you.
Sons Of Anarchy’s Kurt Sutter is down on all the different ways that TV is measured, even though the measured ratings of his show are great. I wonder how he thinks decisions about shows ought to be made if there weren’t all those measurements. Kurt, let us know!
Update: Kurt Sutter posted on his personal blog (and linked in our comments below) that his remarks were taken out of context from an entirely different interview, and reading his explanation, I completely agree. Thanks for the clarification, Kurt.
