Fox, The CW upfronts

Going backward for a moment, take a look at this asshole talking about Jericho.

“We lost a lot of steam,” said Kelly Kahl, CBS’ chief scheduling executive. “I know we had loyal viewers ... but the show sort of lost its engine and wasn’t performing.”

Gee, could it have been that big giant hiatus you took on a newly-developing serialized drama, you stupid fucking douchebucket?  They pay idiots like that real money?  “I know we have loyal viewers that would help build the audience and fix our mistake, but I had to justify the break to some bean counter so I blamed the whole thing on ratings and I’m too stupid to know when something was just about to get good.  So yeah...I’m an asshole.  What are you gonna do about it, peons?”

Die in a fire, Kelly.  Die in a fire.  On to the upfronts.  First, Fox:

American Idol - The top 3 perform

Yay!  It’s almost over!  I will NEVER DO THIS AGAIN.  I refuse to even watch this show next year.  The effort that it takes is not worth the amount of traffic it brings, as much as I love each and every person who comes by.  Fuck you, Simons Cowell and Fuller!  Kiss my ass, Nigel Lithgoe!  I am SO OUT OF HERE AFTER THE FINALE!

Anyway...moving on.  Didja hear?  Randy and Simon knew Jordin thee years ago, and Jordin won a Christian song thing sponsored by Coke.  Also, she’s recorded an album and toured for the last three years.  Guess who’s winning this thing?  :) At least the final three are actually talented.

American Idol - Top 4 elimination

DialIdol says that Blake and Jordin are insanely, crazily, ridiculously safe.  Who is going home, LaKisha or Melinda?  Will Muppet Gibb sing over his new dentures?  Will Seacrest and Cowell act all gay together again?  Why didn’t Old Man Withers just sell the park instead of dressing like a ghost to try and scare the gang?  Didn’t he know Scooby could smell him?

This an more, all next.  This...is Ah-merican Idol.

24 is so frigging ridiculous

I’m a little late, but I needed to set this down and get this clear in my head.  I’m supposed to accept that…

SPOILER!

24, sort of

Today is the day.  I have reached saturation.  There are too many shows doing the same thing, dramatically speaking.  I don’t even think about watching medical shows other than House (Scrubs doesn’t count), I can only imagine what it would be like if I cared about Grays or ER.  I’m finding it harder and harder to care about anything other than Heroes.

Too many reality shows.  Too many one hour serialized dramas.  NOT.  ENOUGH.  COMEDY.  They just pulled Knights of Prosperity off the schedule because it was getting crushed.  So find it a place to live...at the worst it got 5 million viewers.  Can you imagine?  A show that was actually amusing, had good characters, was getting better every episode, had a core of five million and no one can find a way to make it profitable?  Really?

I have been watching an episode or two of Absolutely Fabulous before I get to sleep.  Even when they show got weird and strayed off the point (thanks Comedy Central for screwing that one up) it was still brilliantly funny.  Why can’t we have more actual funny on TV?  We’ve got five half-hour shows worth laughing at (that aren’t animated!) on the schedule right now - How I Met Your Mother, Office, Earl, Scrubs and 30 Rock.  Add Colbert to that list, and in the summer It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia comes back while the others go away.  I hear Monk is good dramady but it;s 5 seasons in, so I need to get a box set or download them to catch up and who has the time?  There’s 82375 other shows on.

When did America stop watching actual funny stuff?  When did we stop having the desire to laugh for an hour or two each evening before the news reminded us how horrible the world has become?

Anyway, there are what, 20 or so hour-long serialized shows running right now?  7923 if you count each Law & Order and CSI as a separate show.

Maybe I’m just burned out because I’m in a rotten mood and I just sat through Prison Break and 24 and now I feel like I can’t watch Heroes because I won’t appreciate it.  Battlestar last night was whatever...the thing I look forward to the most on TV these days is Mythbusters repeats and freaking Ninja Warrior!  I’ll save Heroes until tomorrow.

Anyway...24.  Yeah, it was pretty much retreading the same territory.  I’ve seen every single thing that happened tonight on this actual show before, not to mention on the 839284 other one-hour drama shows.  It was OK, though.  Feel free to spoil it up in the comments…

I can’t even keep track anymore.  I think this is the 56, 349th hour of the ninth week of Jack Bauer’s resurrection and ascendancy.

Anyway, spoils and stuff down there \/

Heroes and 24 last night

No long recap.  I just wanted to say that I actually enjoyed both of them, especially Heroes.  I liked 24 this week because stuff frigging happened, and I actually cared about Right Said Fred’s problems.  Which would never have been so had he not been tortured so severely.  So, people comnplaining about torture on 24?  Piss off.

Heroes was good from top to bottom.  I can’t WAIT for next week.

It was REALLY nice to just watch both shows and not even think about writing down notes and thoughts.  And now I have to freaking watch and write about two goddamned hours of American idol.  Why i ever started this I don’t know.  I’m not even getting that much traffic off the fucker.

24 - Day 6, 12 PM - 1PM

I can summarize that episode in...3 sentences.  I better be quick, ‘cuz I’m a day late and around $46,372 short.  That happens to be the exact amount of money I need to buy every gadget and gizmo I currently want.  Checks may be sent to my home address.  Thank you for your support.

Spoilers in 3, 2, 1…
