You thought I was not serious?
Plenty of other stuff out on the Hypnotoad. Just look-
|"Television is a vast wasteland"|
Late Night Update.
Why are you Update.
Busy Afternoon, tonight not so much.
Here’s a list of things (not comprehensive) I think more worthy of your eyeballs.
Instead of Women’s Curling Semi Final Canada (8 – 1) v. Switzerland (6 – 2) on USA
|10:30||TV Land||Hogan’s Heros||1:00|
|11:00||TCM||There Goes My Heart||12:30|
|12:00||ABC Family||Full House||1:00|
|1:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||2:00|
|1:00||VH-1||Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp||2:00|
|1:30||Disney||Phineas and Ferb||4:00|
|1:30||E!||True Hollywood Story||5:00|
Today’s marathon champ is Real Housewives at 14 Hours with a half hour break at midnight for Watch What Happens: Live. Only 10 Hours of CSI.
Hal Roach time on TCM. General Spanky is an Our Gang comedy (if you can call them that, I never got into them). You should read the wiki because the backstory on the production is interesting (of course nobody clicks links ever). October Sky is an anagram of Rocket Boys.
Resident Expert John Hodgman “fixes” the “bad” Olympics by throwing people off mountains instead of “elaborate sliding contests”. “These are not sports, these are drunken dares.” Also Figure Skating needs more glitz.
Last night’s Vancouverage 2010 is brought to you in Wild Strawberry from the Colbert Sports Zepplin. He has a Cold War Update- Mike Eruzione guest with Scott Hamilton who admits there needs to be more “fabulous” in Skating, just as Hodgeman suggests.
Stephen also displays his skills as Assistant Team Sports Psychologist in Freud Rage: The Ice Man Counseleth. Tonight at 11:00 his game changing inspirational speech.
Instead of Women’s Hockey (Bronze) Finland v. Sweden on MSNBC
|2:00||ABC Family||Sabrina the Teenage Witch||3:00|
|2:00||History||The Lost Pyramid||4:00|
|2:00||TCM||A Day at the Races||4:00|
The Lost Pyramid is actually a pretty interesting documentary about a pyramid at Abu Ruwash that disappeared (spoiler alert- it was mined for pre-cut stone to it’s foundations).
Ice Cream! Get your Tutsi Fruitsy Ice Cream!
Instead of Women’s Free Skate Preview and Women’s Cross country (4 x 5k) on NBC
|3:00||TLC||Police Women of Broward (and Maricopa) County||10:00|
|3:00||ABC Family||Full House||4:00|
|4:00||TNT||Law & Order||7:00|
|4:00||History||Egypt: Engineering an Empire||6:00|
|4:00||TCM||Mr. Deeds Goes To Town||6:00|
Another interesting History Channel Documentary. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was supposed to be a sequel to Mr. Deeds, but Gary Cooper was unavailable for the role. Both are Columbia Pictures Capra Depression Era classics.
Instead of Men’s Curling (Semi Finals) on CNBC
|5:00||E!||Keeping Up With the Kardashians||7:00|
|5:00||ABC Family||Gilmore Girls||6:00|
Fortunately we get Olympics Update on MSNBC today instead of Tweety. Gilmore Girls is the second episode where we first meet Paris Gellar.
Whitney Huston has never been one of my favorites, but I have a very funny Bobby Brown story to tell you some day.
Instead of Women’s Hockey (Gold) US v. Canada on MSNBC
|6:00||Oxygen||Law & Order||2:00|
|6:00||FX||Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story||8:00|
|6:00||TCM||Hail the Conquering Hero||8:00|
|7:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||8:00|
|7:00||SciFi||ST Next Generation||11:00|
|7:00||ESPN||Iowa @ Northwestern||9:00|
|7:00||Animal Planet||Planet Earth||6:00|
8 Hours of Law & Order! 11 Hours of Planet Earth!
Last chance to see Wednesday’s editions. Johnny Test at 8:00 is a new episode. Hail is Preston Sturges’ last script for Paramount.
Instead of Women’s Figure Skating, Freestyle Skiing, Nordic Combined on NBC
|8:00||AMC||Forrest Gump (x2)||2:30|
|8:00||ABC Family||Nancy Drew||10:00|
|8:00||Food||Iron Chef America||10:00|
|8:00||FX||The Simpsons Movie||10:00|
|8:00||TBS||The Whole Ten Yards||10:00|
|8:00||TV Land||Andy Griffith Show||10:00|
|8:00||TNT||Cleveland at Boston||10:30|
|9:00||MSNBC||Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow||12:00|
|9:00||VH-1||Celebrity Rehab w/ Dr. Drew||12:00|
|9:00||ESPN||Arizona @ California||11:00|
|9:00||History||WW II in HD||11:00|
|9:30||Disney||Phineas and Ferb||10:30|
|10:00||A&E||Manhunters: Fugitive Task Force||12:00|
|10:00||Comedy||Dimitri Martin, Sarah Silverman||11:00|
|10:00||Toon||King of the Hill||11:00|
|10:00||Food||Ace of Cakes||11:00|
|10:00||TCM||The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance||12:00|
|10:30||TNT||Denver at Golden State||1:00|
|11:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||12:00|
Is anyone else as tired of Forrest Gump as I am at this point? The Simpsons is not so bad, though some parts are better than others.
The Killers is the good 1946 version starring Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner, not the bad 1964 version starring Ronald Reagan, Angie Dickinson, and Lee Marvin.
Nancy Drew is the premier episode of a brand new series I’m kind of excited about actually because when I was younger I was quite a fan (as well as Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and a half dozen other series that were shorter lived and more obscure).
Archer as I’ve mentioned is by the same team as Frisky Dingo. Caprica is last week’s episode. It is technically possible to not watch anything except Family Guy from 10:00 to midnight.
Instead of Figure Skating Recap and Repeat on NBC
|12:00||Food||Iron Chef America||1:00|
|12:00||Oxygen||Law & Order||2:00|
|12:00||TCM||The Dirty Dozen||3:00|
|12:00||VH-1||Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp||1:00|
|12:30||E!||True Hollywood Story||2:30|
|1:00||Food||Ace of Cakes||2:00|
|1:00||History||WW II in HD||3:00|
|1:00||Toon||Moral Orel, Oblongs||2:00|
|1:00||VH-1||Good Morning Vietnam||4:00|
|1:30||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||2:30|
|2:00||Toon||King of the Hill||3:00|
|2:00||A&E||Manhunters: Fugitive Task Force||4:00|
|2:00||USA||Stephen King’s Riding the Bullet||4:00|
Even if you are planning on watching ‘Curling After Dark’ you need this update.
Instead of Women’s Curling Semi Final Sweden (7 – 2) v. China (6 – 3) on MSNBC
|3:00||Food||Iron Chef America||4:00|
|3:00||TBS||The Ice Harvest||5:00|
|3:00||TCM||Ice Station Zebra||6:00|
|4:00||TV Land||Three’s Company||5:00|
|5:00||Toon||Moral Orel, Home Movies||6:00|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.
