Now with Prime Time Update!
Late Night Final.
Here’s a list of things (not comprehensive) I think more worthy of your eyeballs.
Instead of Men’s Curling on USA

I’ll mention at this point AMC is running my favorite ‘Strong Women of the 80s’ double feature- Aliens and Terminator 2. Also that Oxygen’s Snapped is in fact part of a 10 and a half hour marathon, Spike’s CSI is part of an 11 hour marathon, and Bravo’s Real Housewives the start of an astounding 13 and a half hour one interrupted only by a half hour of Watch What Happens: Live at midnight!

Archer is a new cartoon by the makers if Frisky Dingo. Caprica is the new series by the Battlestar Galactica crowd. I’m not sure what I think about it yet. The Barretts of Wimpole Street is the 1934 Shearer/March version.
You’ll note I included Burn Notice.

All of them far more worth your eyeballs than NBC and it’s 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.
