 Further adventures in late night television

It started out as a bit of a rough night for me as I settled in to the couch, booze in one hand, remote control in the other. I flipped over to that bastion of wee AM entertainment, TBS - The Superstation, and was absolutely horrified to discover that they were showing a "romantic comedy"!

I stared in shock for a few moments, unsure of how to proceed. The cable network responsible for Movies for Guys who like Movies, The Man Made Movie, and an onscreen logo consisting of nothing but a continuous explosion had somehow scheduled a "chick flick". This did not sit well with me, but I found another television staple to keep me occupied.

Thankfully, at 2:30 AM, TBS returned to their senses and CHiPs (Woo-hoo! Check out that URL, folks!) came on. I instantly felt more at ease with the world as that 80's synth funk streamed from the speakers while Erik Estrada's inhuman grin filled my screen. Still, I couldn't help but feel a bit let down by TBS.

Then, during the first commercial break, all was set right. Beginning next Sunday TBS will begin a new feature, titled "No Football, No Problem!" On February 10th we have the inaugural debut with both Chris Tucker and Charlie Sheen in Money Talks. I can only assume that this quality of programming will continue in the future.

God bless America, and God bless TBS!

Thank you, and good night.

I would be ever so impressed with that CHiPs URL, you know, if I hadn't found it and used it here first.

So there. You smell.

That was, like, SO last year. I am ushering in a bold new era of CHiPs.

What, you think there aren't any XX insomniacs? Don't they deserve some love from TV too?

Oh, I forgot about all those execrable chick channels. Never mind...

You have the shopping channels, plus all the late night infomercials. I know how you girls just love to shop.

Ah, shopping and watching infomercials. Almost as much fun as sticking needles in your eyes.
