    Sometimes you just want to get the weather forecast courtesy of the greatest Country in the world that created the greatest weather technology in the world and when you tune into the Weather Channel all you get is glitz or Cantore Stories. Now they are promoting a reality series about California lifeguards. For the record, and I doubt of the weather channel will bring it up, we had one US President who was a former lifeguard.

    TWC sucks donkey balls.....You don't get the weather anymore, except in the middle of the day when nobody is watching.

    TWC has it all. The best in technology, the best in analysis and the best in world class broadcasting. You can get local weather based on a zip-code by pressing the red button on the remote. Like any government bureaucracy they can't be content to do the best weather forecasting in the world. Sometimes they have to give a left wing lesson in "global warming" and they even have a regular news feed courtesy of NBC. Who wants to listen to bald headed Jim Cantore narrate a canned video about severe weather ten years ago? They need to give the high paid weather celebrities time off? All they ever do is read a monitor. Hire some interns to give us the weather on weekends and save your money by not investing in (fake? dramatized?) reality shows. Maybe it's too late.

    And they waste it all by stuffing their schedule with crap like Epic Conditions, Storm Stories and the latest picayune nonsense about Fornicalia Lifeguards.

    They're starting to make watching Jersey Shore look like a viable entertainment option.

    I forgot, It was Dutch Reagan who in 7 years saved 77 people in the Ca. surf as a lifeguard.

    More made-up bullshit. You can get weather any time of the day on TWC. I guess honesty doesn't mean much anymore to some. :doubt:
