You thought I was not serious?
Plenty of other stuff out on the Hypnotoad. Just look-

Late Night Update.
Why are you Update.
Slow day today as they wind down.
Here’s a list of things (not comprehensive) I think more worthy of your eyeballs.
Instead of Men’s Hockey US v. Switzerland on NBC
|1:30||VH-1||Celebrity Rehab w/ Dr. Drew||3:30|
|1:30||Disney||That’s So Raven||4:00|
|2:00||TMC||The Treasure of the Sierra Madre||4:00|
|2:00||Comedy||Shaun of the Dead||4:00|
|3:00||AMC||The Secret Of My Success||5:30|
|3:00||ABC Family||Full House||4:00|
|3:00||Oxygen||Breakin’ All the Rules||5:00|
|3:00||Nick||Fairly Odd Parents||3:30|
|3:30||VH-1||Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp||4:30|
|4:00||TMC||Duel in the Sun||6:30|
|4:00||TNT||Law & Order||7:00|
|4:00||Disney||Wizards of Waverly Place||6:00|
Hardly any marathons worthy of the name today. The Secret of My Success is Michael J. Fox at his peak if you happen to be a fan. Spiderman 3 still is what it is. Shaun strikes me as an interesting film that I might like to see and reminds me that I’m watching Young Frankenstein instead of Vancouverage 2010.
Oh well, it’s one of Mel Brooks’ two best movies (the other is Blazing Saddles), and I can always catch it online or the last repeat at 7:00.
Olympics? We don’t need no stinkin’ Olympics.
Instead of Curling Tiebreaker Britain v. Sweden on MSNBC
|5:00||ABC Family||Gilmore Girls||6:00|
|5:00||Oxygen||Bad Girl’s Club||9:00|
|6:30||TCM||Indiscretion of an American Wife||8:00|
At least we can be thankful for at least one more Tweety free day.
Indescretion looks like an interesting flick. I’ve never seen it and can’t recommend it, but you should at least read the wiki. Written by Truman Capote and starring Montgomery Clift, everyone involved with the project and all the critics hated it.
I kind of remember a science fiction novel that had about the same plot as Dave, it was set on Mars I think. I have no clue how to hunt it down unless that rings any bells for someone.
Gilmore Girls will be the very first episode, when Lorelai makes a deal with the devil (Emily and Richard) to get Rory into Chilton. I hadn’t seen the last episode until last night and I’ll call it satisfactory, though Barack Obama has turned out to be a HUGE disappointment.
Instead of Men’s Hockey Russia v. Canada on CNBC
|7:00||Spike||100 Ways to Die||10:30|
|7:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||8:00|
|7:00||ESPN||Florida State at North Carolina||9:00|
|7:00||Discovery||Man v. Wild||10:00|
|7:30||ABC Family||Step Up||10:00|
|7:30||FX||30 Days of Night||10:00|
Well, since I missed the 1:00 I guess you know what I’ll be watching, though I do like Man v. Wild and frequently watch it while putting together Weekend News Digest.
Instead of Men’s Short Track 500m, Women’s Giant Slalom, Women’s Aerials, Cross Country, and Bobsled on NBC
|8:00||A&E||Dog the Bounty Hunter||11:00|
|8:00||AMC||Forrest Gump (x 2)||2:00|
|8:00||TCM||The Diary of Anne Frank||11:00|
|8:00||TV Land||Andy Griffith||10:00|
|8:00||VH-1||Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp||9:00|
|8:00||MSNBC||Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow||12:00|
|9:00||PBS||The National Parks: America s Best Idea||11:00|
|9:00||ESPN||Los Angeles @ Dallas||11:30|
|9:00||History||WW II in HD||11:00|
|9:00||Lifetime||The Jane Austen Book Club||11:00|
|9:00||TNT||Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby||11:00|
|9:00||Toon||Star Wars: The Clone Wars||9:30|
|9:00||VH-1||Into the Blue||11:00|
|9:00||Oxygen||A Cinderella Story (x 2)||1:00|
|9:30||Disney||Phineas and Ferb||10:30|
Life is like a box of Forrest Gumps, you know exactly what you’ll get.
I’m just so not a fan of Will Ferrell, except as Bob Oblong and
W. I did see a car sliding across the Start/Finish line at Daytona week before last during one of their Green, White, Checkered crashes.
Flaming chunks of twisted metal.
Instead of Men’s Hockey Finland v. Czech on CNBC
|10:00||Toon||King of the Hill||11:00|
|11:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||12:00|
|11:00||Discovery||Man v. Wild||1:00|
Dinner Impossible is always fun to watch because it’s an entirely different ball game to cook for 2 or 3 hundred people at a time.
Alfie is of course Michael Caine’s debute, though it seems like he’s in everything since he’s never met a script he didn’t like.
Instead of Men’s Hockey Sweden v. Slovakia on CNBC or Women’s Short Track 1000m, Speed Skating and Medal Ceremonies and Repeat on NBC
|12:00||A&E||Dog the Bounty Hunter||3:00|
|12:00||Travel||Man v. Food||3:00|
|1:00||Comedy||Futurama, Daily Show, Colbert Report||2:30|
|1:00||TCM||A Room With A View||3:00|
|1:00||Toon||Moral Orel, Oblongs||2:00|
|1:00||MSNBC||Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow||3:00|
|1:00||History||WW II in HD||3:00|
|2:00||AMC||The Secret Of My Success||4:30|
|2:00||Toon||King of the Hill||3:00|
Keith’s dad is not doing well. Special Comment.
Instead of Curling Tiebreaker Britain v. Sweden (repeat) on MSNBC
|3:00||ESPN||Los Angeles @ Dallas||5:00|

|3:30||TV Land||Three’s Company||5:00|
|4:30||AMC||Our Little Girl||6:00|
|5:00||Toon||Moral Orel, Home Movies||6:00|
|5:00||TCM||Room at the Top||7:00|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.
