    I just mailed back my Neilsen Ratings books for this season. I’ve been a “Nielsen house” for over 20 years. When the ratings are tallied officially, Deadliest Catch should go way UP in the ratings. I filled out EVERY episode that aired of DC and under the comments section (and they do listen) Capt Phil got my vote for best all around reality show “celeb”. The more Phil you show, the more I’ll watch!!! Good luck with the new season. (Book Phil in South Mississippi for a signing! )
