I agree with your last statement. A standing ovation means nothing. I don't think I've ever been to a Broadway show that didn't end in a standing ovation. We get standing ovations at the end of every one of my school shows. I don't know if this is a growing trend or if it's always been this way, but it doesn't always mean that the audience thought the show was spectacular. It's more of a courtesy thing in my experiences.
