You raise a good point though - if the ratings are fine then why bother changing anything?
Oh no doubt Steigy is not the reason people are watching in droves. Malkin, Crosby, winning, etc. are the driving forces. The point is that he is not effecting the ratings one way or another.
By the way, I wonder how a poll between Steigy and Bobo the Monkey as far as broadcasting abilities would fare?
