What is our country coming to? My favorite show on television is being replaced tonight by a debate. Yes, a DEBATE. Nerds across America may be applauding, but I’m totally hooked on Thursday night television.
I would much rather spend my evening watching Dwight kiss Michael’s ass than have my ass kissed by two Vice-Presidential candidates. I’d rather have commercials promise me thinner thighs rather than a Vice-Presidential candidate promise me a list of things he/she cannot and will never deliver. I’d rather watch the cast of “Survivor Africa” try to outrun a pack of wild elephants than a Vice-Presidential candidate tell me how he/she is going to save us from the elephants (and by elephants, I mean terrorists).
I want television that makes me laugh, not a Vice-Presidential debate that will probably bring me to tears or rage (it’s usually a toss up).
Thank god for my TiVo (actually I have a DVR, but TiVo just sounds so much cooler) -hopefully I have an old episode of “The Office” stored somewhere.
