Perception Makes Reality?

The offer is:

Because you bought HBO DVDs, you might like to know you can download the premiere of Candace Bushnell's new NBC hit "Lipstick Jungle" for free--before it airs on TV--only on Amazon Unbox. Watch it tonight on your PC or TiVo box.

You will explain to me:

how a television program gets to be a hit before it airs on TV?

I'm not sure, but it may have something to do with audience testing. And I do know that the previews were way cool and when my husband saw them, he said to me, "You want to watch that show don't you! It reminds you of Sex in the City, doesn't it?" So, if he could tell it might be a hit with me, then maybe it's just a bunch of men sitting around saying, "Yeah, all those women who like those 'woman-shows' are gonna LOVE's gonna be a HIT!" :) I'm still amazed by the shows I DO like on TV. It's making me ask myself, "Who am I?" But then again, watching TV at all made me start asking that question. So there's my theory, and I'm stickin' to it. :))

I think it has to do with HBO thinking Candace Bushnell is PURE RATINGS MAGIC straight from LADY VIEWER HEAVEN.

Or something.

I meant to say NBC, actually.

See what I get for being a smarty-pants?
