Time to ‘Fess Up: How Many of You Are Watching ‘Doctor Who’? [SURVEY]
Our web guy insists “tons of people” are watching the new “Doctor Who.” That may be true, I said, but NO ONE I know. The Brad said NO ONE he knows. The web guy insists we’re wrong and did a Facebook survey. About 6 of his Facebook friends watch it, 5 of The Brad’s friends and 5 of my friends. Considering that’s less than 20 out of our combined 2,000+ Facebook friends, it appears less than 1 percent (with room for statistical error) of people we know watch “Doctor Who.” What about you?
The web guy made me call my friend who’s the biggest Sci-Fi fan. Here’s what he said:
It’s a BBC program, dude. No one watches that crap. This is America. I know it’s popular, and they just had a 50th Anniversary special and they just handed off the reigns from the 12th to the 13th doctor. I know that because I read IGN.”
Next he had me call the most normal woman I knew. I called my sister-in-law and she had NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IT!
Here’s the video of our argument. To be honest, you’re wasting your time if you watch past 3:05.
