You thought I was not serious?
Plenty of other stuff out on the Hypnotoad. Just look-
|"Television is a vast wasteland"|
Prime Time Update.
Here’s a list of things (not comprehensive) I think more worthy of your eyeballs.
Instead of Men’s Curling on USA
|9:00||TV Land||Leave It To Beaver||1:00|
|10:00||AMC||The Devil’s Brigade||1:00|
|11:00||Oxygen||America’s Next Top Model||11:00|
|12:00||ABC Family||Full House||1:00|

|1:00||E!||True Hollywood Story||4:00|
|2:00||History||True Caribbean Pirates||4:00|
|2:00||ABC Family||Sabrina the Teenage Witch||3:00|
My goodness, our two marathons, CSI and America’s Next Top Model, are so short, only 12 Hours, that they’re hardly even worthy of the name.
Not many movies compared to yesterday. Broadway Melody from 1929 is the first sound film ever to win an Oscar for Best Picture.
Looks like a good day to catch up on Caprica as they’re repeating practically the whole series so far. As I’ve said I don’t quite know what I think about it yet.
Instead of Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Team Sprints on NBC or Women’s Hockey semi-Finals on USA

|4:00||History||Return of the Pirates||6:00|

Philadelphia and Forrest Gump (x 2) is the exact same triple feature we saw yesterday. How imaginative. Aren’t there any other Tom Hanks movies? Bueller?
Groundhog Day is one of my favorites. I don’t know anything at all about doing things over and over and over and over and over and over and over again until you get them right. Best movie about Buddhism ever!
Cash Cab, just saying.
Connecticut is going to thump West Virginia. Stargate? Can’t get me enough Amanda Tapping, some people say I’m like Rodney that way. King Tut has a sequel at 8 pm. Gilmore Girls is winding down, Logan asked Lorelai for Rory’s hand this morning.
Mr. DeMille? I’m ready for my close up.
Instead of another Women’s Hockey semi-Final on CNBC or Ice Dancing, Freestyle Skiing, and Ski Jumping on NBC
|8:00||AMC||Forrest Gump (x 2)||2:00|
|8:00||MSNBC||Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow||12:00|

|11:30||TCM||It Happened One Night||1:30|
Final Update for today
Well here’s something pretty amazing. In looking at the schedule for late night there is absolutely NO original programming except for Women’s Curling, Britain v. Denmark, on MSNBC @ 3 am.
Zip. Zilch. Nothing. Nada.
Just another example of the COMPLETE FAILURE OF NBC SPORTS AT THIS OLYMPIC GAMES!
Incompetent morons, they’re worse than US Curling.
Each update takes about as much research (2 hours or so) as a normal essay and tonight I just don’t see the point of it.
Find your own amusement. I suppose I shall wash my socks and nap.
This part still under construction, expect updates.
All of them far more worth your eyeballs than NBC and its horrible coverage.
This isn’t even political, except for the lesson in activism.
Am I serious?
Oh Rose, have something to eat.
Two hundred thousand years in the future he’s dying, and there’s nothing I can do.
Well, like you said, two hundred thousand years, it’s way off!
But it’s not! It’s now. That fight is happening right now! And he’s fighting for us, for the whole planet, and I’m just sitting here eating chips!
Listen to me! God knows I have hated that man, but right now I love him, and do you know why? Cause he did the right thing, he sent you back to me!
But what do I do every day, Mum? What do I do? Get up, catch the bus, go to work, come back home, eat chips and go to bed, is that it?!
It’s what the rest of us do.
But I can’t!
Why, cause you’re better than us??
NO, I didn’t mean that! I just… But it was. It was a better life!
And I don’t mean all the travelling, and seeing aliens and spaceships and things, that don’t matter.
The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know, he showed you too!
That you don’t just give up! You don’t just let things happen!
You make a stand, you say no, you have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away.
I want to make it very clear that you can use this thread to talk about the Olympics all you like.
I will be watching something else.
And you’re perfectly free to post your own essay, I might even promote it.
But to those who say that it doesn’t matter, that now that NBC has its advertisers ratings mean nothing, you couldn’t be more wrong. They have guaranteed those advertisers a certain number of eyeballs and if NBC doesn’t make their numbers they have to give their sponsors free advertising until they do.
You have power. You just have to have the willpower to use it.
