Carol Burnett was on The View one day last week and because I like Carol Burnett, I recorded it.
Guess what else happened that day? That stupid governor of NY resigned because he got caught in a hooker ring. So, ABC thought, hey, the people in the Midwest give a damn about the governor of NY, let’s interrupt our own show.
Guess what I could give a damn about?
A governor in NY who got caught with his pants down around his ankles.
So, here’s an open statement to all of the broadcast stations:
Unless my house is going to be hit with a nuclear bomb — don’t interrupt my regularly scheduled show.
Unless the President has been shot — don’t interrupt my regularly scheduled show.
Unless we’ve declared war on Canada or Mexico — don’t interrupt my regularly scheduled show.
In other words, unless it is going to affect me — I don’t want you interrupting my regularly scheduled show. I don’t care about California — it can wait until the six o’clock news. I don’t care about any state — really — except my own and EVEN THAT could wait until the six o’clock news.
If I wanted round the clock news, I’d turn on CNN or MSNBC. When I want to be entertained, I turn on the broadcast networks and I don’t expect you to interrup my regularly scheduled shows.
I hope I’m not alone in this.
