  Do they count VCR taping at all in ratings these days? Because
(when I have it set up correctly) I will certainly tape Cheers or
Twin Peaks (probably TP) and watch it later. 

 ( or course, I FF through the commercials, so its debatable if they should
	charge more for advertisers if people like me watch it)

  ABS has no right to compain, though, putting it against a powerhouse
like Cheers.
