Random musings of the day, composed while eating a Wendy’s spicy chicken sandwich for lunch so keep any expectations well in check:
If I were a local news anchor and had the misfortune to work with the freaks and misfits at WOOD TV 8, I do not think I could resist the urge to repeatedly refer to lead reporter Dray Clark as “Dr. Dray”.
Staying up late is overrated. During a bout of Sunday night insomnia, I watched the WPT Hollywood Home Game episode with Mike Sexton and Daniel Negreanu. Daniel wasn’t bad at all, but I had to wonder – where was Vince Van Patten? Getting his 100,000 cliché tuneup?
From the crimes against humanity department, misdemeanor division: There are still no stations regularly showing NewsRadio reruns. The people that make programming decisions suck.
Speaking of odd programming decisions, why isn’t Doogie Howser, M.D. still in syndication? At the least, shouldn’t it be on TV Land?
For some unknown reason, okay, it was because I was watching the show that was on before, I happened to watch the premiere of “Vegas Garden of Love”, a reality show about a family that runs a Vegas wedding chapel. My review: Don’t bother.
On the subject of Vegas-related shows, there was a pretty interesting feature on the History Channel the other evening as part of their “Breaking Vegas” series on the MIT professor who pretty much invented card counting in blackjack. It looks like there’s another episode relating to card counting on tonight.
A&E’s Caesar’s 24-7 is so-so. I haven’t seen every episode, but the couple that I have seen have been a mix of interesting and annoying. It’s watchable, but only barely.
Why is so hard to find something worth watching when you have 100 channels?
I do not usually watch this many shows related to Vegas and gambling. But when there is nothing else on – you can’t even flip to a music video channel anymore since none of them actually play videos – it’s pretty much down to sports, gambling and Food Network as options.
Speaking of Food Network, if they replay their show about the opening of Bobby Flay’s new Vegas restaurant, it’s worth watching.
If I really wanted to improve my hit count, I’d sprinkle this post with words like TITS! and JESSICA SIMPSON NUDE and LESBIAN PORN. But because I’m not hit count driven, I (FREE IPODS! won’t.
And I will get back to work. Really. I mean it.
