Ancestry.com and the 1900 census

Ancestry.com did something in the past few days to the way they display search results for the 1900 census. For example, if I search Fra* Ayr* in Salem Co, NJ, not only will I get his listing, but I will get everyone in his household.

This annoys me because it's extra data I don't need. The household data in the column to the right of the name is enough for me. Why did they do this? Now I have pages to go through instead of just one.

I wish they'd change it back.
