Some tarnish on that "D TV Strikes Ratings Gold" post by magazine's head man

Wick Allison, Colossus of the D magazine empire, bragged in a FrontBurner post Friday that "D TV Strikes Ratings Gold After Only Eight Days."

Well, there were extenuating circumstances Thursday morning. Which he didn't mention. Let alone trying to explain how a preceding Daniel Boone rerun on KTXD-TV (Ch. 47) also drew a bushel of advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. We dig deeper on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Also, History (Channel) goes scripted in a big way Sunday night (March 3rd) with two new miniseries, Vikings and The Bible. Our reviews are here.

Plus, if you haven't seen the February newscast ratings "sweeps" breakdown yet, it's moved to the February archives. You can find it here. The Wednesday/Thursday D-FW Nielsen ratings also are posted.

Furthermore, thanks to all readers for your continued support. And especially to those who shop on Amazon by first clicking on any of the unclebarky.com ads and then proceeding to make the purchases you had in mind.

A small percentage of money from those buys goes to your friendly content provider. And last month, one especially thoughtful reader made some pretty major purchases that helped to fuel a bigger month than usual. Wow, over $100 bucks in earnings! But it really does make a difference in keeping this website going and my spirits at a higher level. And in reality it doesn't cost you a dime to first go through unclebarky.com to Amazon territory.

Thanks again to all!
