Part opinion engine, part social network, and part buzz tracker, Hey! Nielsen is the place to share opinions on your favorite entertainment.
This could turn out to be such an awesome thing. The folks behind the Nielsen TV ratings system are starting up a website where they'll be actively seeking fan opinions and buzz.
Hey! Nielsen is in beta now; you can sign up for a beta invite at the website, and they're set to open in October. Apparently Hey! Nielsen is opening a MySpace and a Facebook; I suggested a Livejournal, but one way or another, I'll be watching this one.
I'm one of the ones grumbling that the Nielsen ratings are a poor representation of actual TV viewing, and it looks like maybe we fans will finally have a way to make our opinions known.
Be sure to check out the Hey! Nielsen blog, too; they're running a contest to find the best entertainment blogs out there. A lot of my favorites are there (though I have to say I was pretty much aghast to find Oh No They Didn't in the running. I mean, sure, if you want to find wank about how 'fat' Britney is these days, that's your go-to blog. But if you're looking for something a little less worthy of brain bleach, you're gonna need to look elsewhere, you know?)
Anyway, I'd love to see Supernatural well-represented there. :)
