Random Thought
So my parents tend to leave their TV on and I went out to see what's running. Some sort of show about house searching, which isn't my thing and I don't get why people watch it, but whatever. Anyway, I watched it for a few moments before leaving and instantly I realized "we're sending bad information to the station. It thinks we're watching it, and it thinks we're watching the ads, but we're not."

But then I also realized they undoubtedly run surveys to find out the percentage of people who don't actually watch the program and just leave the thing on to create background noise, so to turn the TV off would actually make their estimations false.

However, have they ran surveys to determine how many people have turned off their TVs after finding out that their TV is sending false information, despite how this false information is actually already accounted for by the station? If so, wouldn't it actually be good if I shut off the TV to meet with their findings because it was something I was going to do anyway?

Maybe they ran a survey to find out how many people have wondered if they have ran a survey to determine how many people shut off their TV when it's not being used so they can have accurate information on viewership. Yet that survey would only be good for people who work with human behavior and mentality, not so much the station. I wonder.
