There are times when things are brought to mind that I’m pretty certain I forgot to cover. This is one of those nights. Timstuff pointed out a post from March 10th by the VP of Fox Broadcasting Kate Arbit. Here is what she had to say about Terminator the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

There are various reasons for people to time-shift, and the action doesn’t make a program any less valuable-in fact it gives ratings a boost. TSCC is a Friday night program, the second least watched night of the week, and if the audience takes the time to playback the program than clearly there is some value to it. As far as fast forwarding goes, several studies have shown that fast forwarding does sometimes result in better recall than live viewing because viewers have to watch the ads, can’t switch the channel, to know when the next segment of the show begins. All this to say time-shifted viewing is not a bad thing it allows veiwers to stay current on their favorite shows at their leisure and practically guarantees the advertiser for its message to be seen across competitive programming.

I hope that she hasn’t forgotten this and I doubt she has. All signs have pointed and continue to point towards the inclusion of DVR numbers in FOX’s ratings overlook. And that DVR ratings will continue be part of the way that Fox determines the possibility of keeping SCC alive or not.

Here’s the original link.

And scroll down through the replies to Kate Arbit from Fox.

Well we finally made it to the end of Season 2 of Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles and of course we are unsure if there will be a Third Season. However what a doozy of a Season it has been and Born to Run written by series Creator Josh Friedman, was one heck of a capper.

Everything hinges together nicely but my brain still feels like it was put into a blender. Pieces that were brought into play in the finale were set up long in advance as far back in fact as The Demon Hand. Actually as far back one could say as Dungeons and Dragons.

In Dungeons and Dragons when Derek turns to face John in the Time Displacement Chamber the silhouette is clearly that of a Younger or Present Day John. And in The Demon Hand we have the exchange between John and Sarah where they exchange “I will always find you’s”.

And in Season 2 in Allison From Palmdale we learn of the Faction of Machines that wants peace. And John wants to join with them we find out in the Two Parter Today is the Day, a John we must assume is either not there…or just hasn’t arrived there from our perspective. The T-1001 awoken early, and who gives the no message to Jesse is revealed to be Catherine Weaver. And that leads us back into discussion of the finale itself.

This episode was all about Sacrifice.

On all fronts.
