Just wanted to share. I'll go back in my cage now.


‘It's not going to be a very good show tonight. I think you should change the channel, change the channel right now or better yet turn off the TV. Now, I know it seems like this is supposed to be funny, but, uh, tomorrow you're gonna find out that it wasn't and by that time I'll have been fired. No, this is not a sketch. This show used to be cutting edge political and social satire, but it's gotten lobotomized by a candy *** broadcast network. Hellbent on doing nothing that might challenge their audience. We're about to do a sketch that everyone's seen like 500 times. No, no one's gonna confuse George Bush and George Plimpton, yeah we get it. We're all being lobotomized by this countries most influential industry. It just throws in the towel on any endeavor to do anything that doesn't involve the courting of 12 year old boys. Not even the smart 12 year olds, the stupid ones, the idiots of which there are plenty thanks to no small mention of this network. So why don't you just change the channel? Turn off the TV do it right now. The struggle between art and commerce. Well, there's always been a struggle between art and commerce and now I'm telling you art is getting it's *** kicked and it's making us mean and it's making us *****y. It's making us cheap punks and that's not who we are! People are having contests to see how much they can be like Donald Trump. We're eating worms for money. "Who wants to screw my sister." Guys are getting killed in a war that has theme music and a logo. That remote in your hands is a crack pipe, oh yeah sure every once in a while we pretend to be appalled. We're becoming Pornographers! It's not even good pornography. It's just a side of snuff films and friends that's what's next because that's all there is left. And the two things that make them scared gutless of the FCC is and every psycho religious cult that gets positively horny at the mention of a boycott.’

Thank God someone actually said it. Maybe people will realize the drivel they're hand(forced)-fed every day, but I doubt it.

And he's right, he'll likely be fired tomorrow.

When the hell was this? Ep 1? I've watched S60 religiously since my Dad told me about it, and I don't remember that... Hell, I'm just praying it comes back on after the basketball games are over. NBC signed on for the last 3 eps of the season, but it's head is definitely on the block. I love S60 as much as I did West Wing. It dares to talk of humanity's nobility and honor, and that standing up for something right should be done not just if it's popular. That scene with the New Orleans brass was just brilliant.

9pm EST - Heroes: 15 million viewers
10pm EST - Studio 60: 5 million viewers

Nobody counts that most people TiVo it and go to bed because its expected that Tivo'ers fast forward through commercials, meaning advertisers don't make any money off of them.
