Dare to Dair?
@Magnus, now you’re spamming and threading on Ibra-worship territory here. But in fairness, if Messi had done it, the fans in Argentina and Barcelona would have asked the Pope to canonize him.
I was about to write buzz kill again Jay, but it was nice save at the end and a funny one at that :)
My satisfaction is that they have nothing to write about Chair; all they’re doing is make Blair claim in every episode that they’re going to end-up together soon. But then again, I’m one of those who never saw anything in Chair except the stupid lines that were shoved down our throat.
I also suspect that they’re destroying Dan’s character as a way of answering some of the criticism. It would confirm that this is not artistic creativity but pandering to certain fans. We can at least claim that we’ve made valid observations that forced the producers to retcon the show.
Yes, there's nothing to their relationship. No real plot. Just nonsense. And it is funny that they are destroying Dan's character to prop CB. Blair is also propping CB. Couldn't they just build them up? Apparently, they can't. So you're telling me that the ratings increased with the promise of Blair and Dan interaction? Was that this monday episode? - If yes, that's even more funnier and a in you face moment. :) The ratings went up a little but the episode leaked online a day earlier and makes that even funnier. Even with a leak, more people watched it. Yes, DB have another scene but it won't be a good one. The writers just have them fighting for no reason.

I think the abysmal ratings happened because of the hurricane and the elections. We’re now back to the regular shitty ratings.
@Magnus, the BBC posted the tweets from English players who watched the goal:
Thanks a million for that link Jay!
No, the ratings were bad before elections and they didn't air a new episode on the day of the hurricane. The rise is only between this week and last week. All hover around 0.7 million regardless.
@Tina, I know but wasn't the ridiculous 0.3 rating the night before the election when people in the NE were still impacted by the hurricane?
It was the night before the elections but a week after the hurricane so no real effect. And the others shows did the same as usual. Like the Voice and Bones had a lower rating this week than the week of GG's 0.3. HIMYM had a higher rating last week than the previous etc etc. So no systematic issue affecting the networks. Just awful episodes.
For example, The Vampire Diaries and Arrow had good/record ratings days after the hurricane (prior to GG's 0.3).
@Tina, in that case, I would agree that Dair still has some following.
