Has anyone ever had a good view of this? I look forward to seeing this every year, but I have never seen anything. Last year I read that you could expect to see 50-80 an hour. I live outside of the city where there is not too much light and even got up to go out at 4 a.m. like they said, but nothing.

Watching meteor showers takes a lot of patience. What you can do is just lay a blanket out on the lawn and look straight up at the stars, provided it's a clear night and there isn't a full moon. The weatherman or your local astronomer will be able to tell you which direction to look in the sky. If you're watching on the night it peaks, then you will see 1 or 2 at the very least.

I think part of your problem is that you look on the wrong day. Everywhere I can find says it peaks the morning of the 12th.
