    Outstanding article about the direction of late night TV. Take the time to read it. It is worth the time.

    I have one thing to say ... that few people will like to hear, but it needs to be said by everyone if our country is to ever get back on track:

    Fuck television.

    I have been catching up on Robot Chicken ... never knew they had so many episodes, Adult Swim only carries a few ... they are hilarious!

    Oh ... and news ... well, prefer the "horses mouth" lately, even McCain has Twitter and a blog ... go figure.

    Why turn it off? Why fuck it? Can people only see TV shows as left or right? Letterman was an idiot for saying what he did. Now people want to stop watching him and boycott his sponsors. Get over it. If every TV and Radio personality that ever said something insensitive were fired, we wouldn't have shit to watch or listen to.

    Why not? TV isn't about facts or truth anyway, and you can see all your shows and entertainment online, with fewer commercials! I never did watch Letterman, I am a Spike Fereston girl, and I can see him online to (he's a geek now, converted).

    Right. It's a form of entertainment. Yeah, you can get it online but if you're anticipating an episode, you don't want to wait a couple days to a week to see it. I never watched any of the late-night talk shows.

    My point was that everything isn't partisan. I mean if Hugh Laurie talks trash about my favorite politician and his kid(s), it doesn't mean that I'm gonna boycott House.

    Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free.

    All you need ... Google for more, but they are standard now, quickly replacing boobtube TV. Face it, television is a dinosaur now, though even our government won't admit it, it is. Hell, you can get Hulu on iPods and phones now.
