Some tragic news about today's TV headlines: There were actually hundreds more stories, but Paula Deen spilled butter on most of them. Whoops!
So it looks like pro-wrestling fans will finally have a 24/7 network all to themselves next year when WWE can gets its own channel. But why stop there? Let's take narrow-casting to the extreme with even more insanely niche networks like these:
Today's TV news contains two types of surprises: "pleasant" and "not really pleasant but makes me happy anyway." I'm not sure which I prefer at this point.
Today's crop of DVDs is strange, to say the least. On the bright side, you won't be disappointed that you didn't receive any of these for Valentine's Day.
As I noted in my preview for this ceremony, there was really no way that this could ever compare to the overwhelming spectacle that was the Beijing Olympics. That was evident right off the bat when instead of giant footprint-shaped fireworks (fake or not) leading up to the venue, we get a snowboarder busting through the Olympic rings. Still impressive in its own right, but lacking the big wow factor. But I'm not going to spend too much time quibbling, especially considering that Bob Coastas at one point said that Vancouver's budget was about $30-40 million dollars compared to the $300-400 million that Beijing spent. And this is the Winter Olympics, which is traditionally smaller in scale anyway. So instead I'm going to focus on how they spent their cash and if it was worth it....
Happy early Valentine's Day, everyone! My gift to you: the news. What can I say? I'm a romantic.
Bad romances and television have gone together since the beginning of the medium. There've been entire series about dysfunctional relationships, not to mention all the shows built around the chemistry and tension between two people. Sometimes when those folks hook up, the pairing actually works dramatically. But all too often, instead of being fun or sexy, the results are awkward and excruciatingly painful to watch. In honor of Valentine's week, we've ranked our least favorite couples from current programs. In some cases, the writers have already wisely chosen to split them up. But in other cases, we're still stuck with them week after annoying week.
There's a lot going on in today's TV news, but if you just want to feel slightly frustrated and roll your eyes in annoyance, feel free to scroll on down to the last headline.
