So I took a short break from actively oppressing women and minorities (though I was thinking about it the whole time) to watch some college football games yesterday. While it was gratifying to see ‘Bama smack the dirty birds around, it wasn’t worth having to sit through the horrible commercials for the new fall shows coming to networks I don’t watch. I kinda sorta forgot that there are TV shows on ABC/CBS/NBC/FOX that are supposed to have some kind of entertainment value, so seeing commercials for the new ones I won’t be watching was kinda surprising.
For instance, did you know that they’re gonna reboot Magnum, P.I.
Well, I won’t be watching that, though I didn’t watch the original either.
Another that I will not only not be watching, but will be counting the eps ’til cancellation is Murphy Brown. Yep, the old bag is actually coming back to TV 20 years later to make it safe for snowflake journalists or something.
Faith Ford actually looks not awful for an older broad, but they mostly show Murphy from 20 years ago in the promos cause too much Candies Bergen is a fat old lady now. Though she was getting up there at the the end of the original run 20 years ago.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming of not watching TV.
