Dear TV,

Why are you so awesome this season?  I’m watching so many shows this time I hardly have time for anything else after work.  Here’s what I’m watching now:

Sunday
The Simpsons
Family Guy
American Dad
Desperate Housewives
Robot Chicken

Monday
Chuck
How I Met Your Mother
Samantha Who?
Journeyman

Tuesday
Bones
Reaper
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Wednesday
Pushing Daisies
‘Til Death
Bionic Woman
Private Practice
Life
The Sarah Silverman Program

Thursday
My Name is Earl
Ugly Betty
30 Rock
Grey’s Anatomy
Drawn Together

Friday
Women’s Murder Club
America’s Psychic Challenge (yeah I know, but it’s actually kind of interesting)

I also watch The Daily Show / The Colbert Report, and I’ve been catching reruns of The King of Queens which is surprisingly funny.

I’m so glad my MythTV box has two tuners and a 300GB drive.

More reasons I hate comcast

Comcast is no longer carrying GSN on their analog service, they replaced it with Turner Classic Movies. Now I have nothing to watch when there’s nothing to watch 🙁

Fuck you, comcast

The following rolled across the top of my tv during My Name Is Earl:

EFFECTIVE WEDNESDAY’ 11/15/06 WNBC WILL BE VIEWABLE ONLY ON COMCAST DIGITAL CHANNEL 253 IN (my town). ALL OTHER AREAS REMAIN UNAFFECTED. DONT HAVE DIGITAL CABLE? CALL 1 800 COMCAST TODAY.

Hopefully this doesn’t also affect WCAU NBC 10, otherwise I’ll have to investigate “alternative” means of watching my NBC shows.

Reboot!

I recently discovered they made two Reboot movies in 2001: Daemon Rising and My Two Bobs. I promptly stuck them in my netflix queue and watched them over the weekend 🙂 They were pretty good, though now we’ve gone from having the storyline nicely wrapped up at the end of Season 3 to having a cliff-hanger at the end of the second movie :-/

I tweaked my user icon a bit in honor of the series:

Not too bad for 30 minutes of The GIMP and a few screenshots.

All kids, outta the pool!

[Adult Swim] had a pretty funny bump last night:

America you are fat

It’s cool though.

When France sees you
and is like

onh honh honh America
vous étes le fatty fat

You tell France to go
suck a stale croissant

Why?

Because you are xenophonic
and not that clever

But you are America

and proud to be fat

You’re the world’s
A #1 consumer

[behind China]

So tell those frogs over
there in frogtown

That you love their pencil lead
and City of Light

but you are big and will
crush their dumb French heads.

We call that diplomacy

[Adult Swim]

Wow

So GSN is showing a special supermodel edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the second fastest finger question was:

Put these phrases you might hear at a fashion shoot in alphabetical order:
A. Smile, sweety
B. That’s a rap
C. Pout like you mean it
D. some other phrase I forgot

Anyway.. yeah. Alphabetical order. You’d think this would be an easy one, right? Look at the first letters, put them in order, and then push the buttons on the keypad in the right order.

Well regis cuts to the results screen, which displays who got the question right, as well as how fast they did it (the fastest person gets to play, hence the term ‘fastest finger’). Anyway, they bring up the results screen and… only two out of the nine models got it right!

It was very sad.
