The sampling size is around .02 percent and for some reason they usually only choose "nuclear families" with certain economic and religious backgrounds. They claim to be changing this however. In the past they said that with such a small sample they wanted to choose people who best represented the majority of viewers.
If Conan is to succeed his network will have to figure out his value in less traditional ways. While ratings are the foundation of that the reason is advertising revenue. If he can convince advertisers that he is worth the money he will be just fine. I think he can do that.

That has less to do with how the Nielsens work than with Seth MacFarlane's various contractual agreements with Satan.

You've apparently never seen Louie. Or if you want to stay on broadcast TV, Community. Both comedies take risks, and are unlike any show on television right now.
