The idea of conspiracy theories behind HBO Go crashing so people will actually go watch shows like Game of Thrones should make for a new system of rating TV shows. If there were certain devices or ways that you couldn’t watch it and you can gauge the talk over several social networks, at the very least, you’d know that the core demographic of 18-34 year olds are watching your show intently and are pissed if there is any way that they can’t. Of course, Nielsen won’t develop a conspiracy theory rating, though it would be easier to explain the current ratings share and how a household is supposed to be representative of an entire segment of the U.S. TV watching population. While you’re debating your own ideas of why HBO Go crashed last night and the motivations behind it, take a step back, gain some perspective, and watch The Most Intentionally Funny Video of The Day.
