What I Watched Last Night

I flipped through the channels last night all through Primetime looking for something to watch other than the Cubs game. It is supposed to be the new fall season with all types of great new television on, and all I found was crap. Possibly my standards are too high. Maybe I am not allowing myself to buy into a new show. Maybe all the stuff that is on television these days is the same stuff that has been on for the last 10

Sequels are getting a little old. A show has a run and then there are five more sequels that are less and less successful as the previous. What American Idol are we on now? I don't even know who won the last four or five. I know that the little squirrelly kid with spiked hair won a few years ago. There was the girl who sings a song now that is apparently popular, but I do not know it. Her name is Kelly Clarkson!

The sad thing is, the only reason I know her name is from the waxing scene in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

Bravo has had that Queer Eye show on for about seven too many seasons. Bravo renewed that fashion show that is sweeping the nation. CBS is on the umpteenth season of Survivor pitting Black versus White (great idea!). NBC started The Biggest Loser three or four years ago. Is Dancing with the Stars on its third season or still just its second?

CBS also has Big Brother. I actually thought that show went off the air like five years ago. That Rock Star Supernova should never leave the air, that show is a riot, and I think that is on its second season.

Funny, how I can name all of these shows and yet I have never watched an entire episode of any of them. Must be advertising, I don't know. Whatever it is, I wish it would stop.

Through all of that interference in my mind I did find something to watch, from an unlikely source: Home & Garden Television, also known as HGTV. I found this little show called I Want That. That show really lives up to its title because they featured these really cool flip flop sandals that do not have straps, they just stick to your feet. I thought they would get dirty when worn but you can wash them with soap and water and you got your self clean kicks again! I want that!

I also want reality television to, at the very least, come up with something new to distract me with. And by new, I don't mean a new season of an old show. We've got enough of those already.
