10 Great/Awful Things About Television Today

October 7th, 2008 by Yano

I admit, I watch a lot of TV, and there’s a lot of bad, crappy stuff out there…but there are some great things, too.

  1. Great - The sophomore year of some great shows - Eli Stone, Pushing Daysies,
  2. Awful - it seems like anyone can get their own reality show - Denise Richards, Lindsay Lohan’s little sister, Rachel Zoe (whoever she is)
  3. Great - Dancing shows.  I LOVE Dancing with the Stars, America’s Best Dance Crew and So You Think You Can Dance the most!
  4. Awful - the fact that there are a lot of great shows on at the same time, aka the Thursday at 8pm CT dilemma
  5. Great - Tivos and DVRs - Thursday at 8pm CT is no longer a dilemma, though now the question is, which do I watch live?
  6. Awful - That robot animation FOX uses during Sunday football games - you know, the one on the bottom left of the screen during breaks.  I HATE HIM.
  7. Great - Saturday Night Live.  Tiny Fey better be getting a LOT of money for the ratings she’s responsible for.  She’s awesome!
  8. Awful - The new shows this season.  There are really only one or two shows that I’ve been impressed with so far (Fringe and The Mentalist)
  9. Great -
  10. Awful - Shows that run over their alotted time - I always set my DVR to one minute passed the runtime because shows tend to save the best for the last moment - which you’ll miss if you just record for the time that they SAY that the show is going to run
