Sitcom Inflation

george_lopez.jpgSpeaking as someone who occasionally finds herself awake at ridiculous hours of the night and very much enjoys having something she can turn on, pay no attention to, and hopefully fall asleep by, I find myself concerned that Nick at Nite is allowing its selection of overnight sitcoms to deteriorate. I understood when they added Full House, because at least it's sort of a camp classic, even if it's not up there with classic Nick selections like Cheers and Roseanne.

But, dude...George Lopez? Really? You want me to watch George Lopez when I'm lying awake at two in the morning? I realize that the slavish devotion to The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, which NatN ran so many times that I think I saw every single one three times (Ben Vereen, you bastard!) was perhaps a sign of trouble, but there are plenty of Cosby episodes. We still love Furniture City! Somehow, I feel like George Lopez represents some sort of crossing of the Rubicon, where after this, it's going to be Yes, Dear and Still Standing. On Nick At Nite. Where I'd sooner see The Facts Of Life or Who's The Boss? return to regular rotation, rather than begin the long, painful plunge into the ABC vault.
