The point is still awarded if someone tunes out, though. I fully agree that they're valuable, but that's still not enough to make me watch the SO.

I watch them when I go to a game live, but only because my seats are in the middle of a row; I'd have to inconvenience like 10 people to get out and it's just not worth doing that to so many other people. But at home? I turn it off as soon as the OT period ends - that's when the hockey game ends for me, and I can just find out if they won the novelty point or not after the fact.
