Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Smallville Many people leave their TV sets on all the time, and I suspect many of them hardly ever change the channel, probably to avoid fights. There is scientific evidence that this drives people insane, and when you look at the world around us, that explains a lot.

It also explains why, even though most people can get dozens of channels, all of the top 100 shows on television are either ABC, NBC, CBS, or FOX. The bottom ranks of the network shows are where you find The CW, and the most watched fiction program on The CW, Smallville, has fewer than four million viewers. As for Battlestar Galactica, it doesn't even make the list. In other words, more people watch the worst network show than watch the best SciFi Channel show.

I'm still going to predict that the semi-season finale of Battlestar Galactica, airing in June, will be the best thing on television this month.
