You seem to think there's some cunning way to make this number not be true.

Or just distract from it.

Regardless, your repeated contentions that RoP is 'bombing' is shown to be laughably disconnected from reality, presumably because you get yours from social media echo chambers that vim you up to fight the lefties wherever they may be.

No, I regularly entertain ideas from people whose ideas sharply differ from my own, because I want to make sure I am not in an "echo chamber", as you put it.

I don't believe you in the slightest.

You're engendering the exact opposite here to the point that you are repeatedly making up positions for other people just to contest in a sneering fashion.

Oh right. Yeah. Oh right.

Season 1 is already looking awful and season 2 is only going to be worse. Will they even make it through the full slated five seasons?

No, stop lying at me.

I've cited the Nielson numbers here over and over, so you can't just lie about them.

The Nielson rankings show 988 million minutes of viewing - you have to address this fact, as fact it remains.

988 million minutes of viewing cannot be described honestly as 'bombing'. You made this claim many times, I have cited the actual numbers.

Do you acknowledge this?

If you then want to still contend how RoP has 988 million minutes of viewing ranking it 3rd among streamed content and STILL want that to be considered 'bombing', then you need to do something more than attempting to fudge the discussion by making it about perceptions or social media or whether there are fewer people watching it now than watched the first two episodes.

Factually, RoP is not bombing.

What's interesting for me is that I have no horse in this race at all. I won't be watching it because I don't watch TV and don't have a subscription. While I have loved Tolkien's work all my life, I don't care whether any given production is a commercial success or not - I'm a book lover. I still haven't watch The Hobbit and probably never will. None of this has any subjective value to me, but objectively, RoP is not bombing by any honest sense of the word.
