Default What does one watch on TV these days?

I'm facing having more time to myself, especially time free in the evenings. i'm recently single again ... so i think i'll do some catching up with an old friend, TV.

but I don't know what to watch anymore. so, there's a good chance i'll just post here instead. like right now.

what are some good (if any) Primetime TV slots.

i disconnected my dish because TV as we know it now, sucks.

i am watching the GB game on the intArweb though.. have to make sure my fantasy team wins.

TV sucks, i have my XBox hooked up to it, and a DVD player hooked up. I had so much fun this summer without TV.

discovery, history, and speed are the only channels i have any hope of knowing right now. oh, and TLC (formerly known as "The Surgery Channel" or "how we got rid of annoying visitors when we lived in the dorm" )

food network ... i wonder if i have that?

Mon 9p WB - Everwood. Good dialogue, excellent acting. Heavy family drama
Tues 9p - NBC - Scrubs. Wittiest show on tv, hands down.
Wed 10p - FX - Rescue Me. Denis Leary. Excellent acting. Drama with hilarious writing. My absolute favourite show and I couldn't say more good things about it. It's brilliant.
Thurs. 10p - NBC - The Apprentice. If you're going to watch any reality show, make it this one. It's actually interesting.

THE PENGUIN SKETCH

(voice over) Number ninety-seven: a radio.

Radio Announcer: And now the BBC is proud to present a brand new radio drama
series, "The Death of Mary, Queen of Scots."
Part One: The Beginning.

(music)

Man's voice: Yoo arrr Mary, Queen of Scots?
Woman's voice: I am!
(sound of violent blows being dealt, things being smashed, awful crunching
noises, bones being broken, and other bodily harm being inflicted. All of
this accompanied by screaming from the woman.)

(music fades up and out)

Announcer: Stay tuned for part two of the Radio Four Production of "The Death
of Mary, Queen of Scots", coming up...almost immediately.
(music)
(sound of saw cutting, and other violent sounds as before, with the woman
screaming. Suddenly it is silent.)

Man's voice: I think she's dead.
Woman's voice: No I'm not!
(sounds of physical harm and screaming start again.)

(music fades up and out)
Announcer: that was episode two of "The Death of Mary, Queen of Scots",
specially adapted for radio by Gracie Fields and Joe Frazier. And
now, Radio Four will explode.
(music)

The radio explodes.

Two old women are sitting on the couch listening to the radio when it
explodes. One looks at the other:

1: We'll have to watch the Telly-vision!
2: Aaaaw. (sound of agreement)
(they turn the couch so it's facing the television. One turns the television
on, and they sit down. There is a small penguin sitting on top of the
television set.)

1 & 2: (singing, mumbled) hhmhmhmhmh... mhmmhmh mhmhm hhmhmmhm mhmhmmhmhmh
1: What's that on top of the telly-vision set?
(pause)
2: (matter-of-factly) Looks like a penguin.
(pause)
2: It's been a long time there, now, has it?
1: What's it doin' there?
2: Standin'!
1: I can see that!
(pause)
1: If it laid an egg, it would roll down the back of the telly-vision set.
2: Ummmm. I hadn't thought of that.
1: Unless it's a male.
2: Yes. It looks fairly butch.
(pause)
1: Per'aps it's from next door.
2: (yelling) NEXT DOOR?!? Penguins don't come from NEXT DOOR! They come
from the Antarctic!
1: (yet louder) BURMA!!!
(they both stop short, looking around)
2: Why'd'j say that?
1: I panicked.
2: Oh.
1: Per'aps it's from the zoo.
2: Which zoo?
1: (angrily) 'ow should I know which zoo it's from?!? I'm not Doctor bloody
Bernofsky!!
2: 'Oo's Doctor bloody Bernofsky?
1: He knows everything.
2: Oooh, I wouldn't like that, that'd take all the mystery out of life.
(pause)
2: Besides, if it were from the zoo, it'd have "property of the zoo"
stamped on it.
1: They don't stamp animals "property of the zoo"!! You can't stamp a
huge lion "property of the zoo"!!
2: (confidently) They stamp them when they're small.
1: (snapping back) What happens when they moult?
2: Lions don't moult.
1: No, but penguins do. THERE! I've run rings around you logically.
2: (looks at the camera) OOOOH! INTERCOURSE THE PENGUIN!!!

(The television warms up: a man is sitting behind a news desk)

Man: Hello! Well, it's just after eight o'clock, and time for the
penguin on top of your television set to explode.

(the penguin explodes)

1: 'Ow did 'e know that was going to happen?!
Man: It was an educated guess. And now:

Voice over: Number ninety-eight: the nape of the neck

Not much. I wish they would bring back The Saint, Monty Python, and The Prisoner reruns. Deb

Agreed. TV blows. However, I admit that Antiques Roadshow is great. It may sound boring to you, but if you like history it's really cool.

Candy - do you ever watch the History Detectives on PBS? It's on Monday night and it's very cool if you're into historical stuff.

No, but I've been told it's really good. Now that football season has started that's what I'll be watching 4 nights a week.

I enjoy the occasional "that 70's show" and "king of queens" reruns. Other than that it's usually the History channel.
