Is there something about delayed broad casting in other countries?
If so that is really delayed.

OMG, I forgot Bullshit, one of my absolute favorites!

South Park, Bullshit, Colbert Report, Daily Show, NFL Total Access,* Real Time with Bill Maher, King of the Hill, Entourage, and Mythbusters. Pretty much in that order.

What about Sesame Street? 109 Emmys and they have taught a lot of people a lot of things...

If Sesame Street is so good, how come the U.S. government has to extort money from me to pay for it? (I have a prize waiting for the first person who can demonstrate the difference between extortion and taxation.) "PBS: It's so good, it can't compete for your money!"

Not only are Rich Eisen and Adam Shefter two of the smartest guys on TV, they give me the option of paying to watch them, or not. I pay them, and I do so happily.

As I said, no argument is possible.

Now you have me curious about how funding works on Sesame Street. They can't need that much funding, I mean you can't throw a ball in a toy store without hitting Big Bird or that damn Elmo, not to mention books, video games, website...

Only thing I can figure is how advertising works with PBS might keep them from making money the way for-profit shows do.

Did anyone see last nights South Park? I think it was the funniest one I've ever seen. It was all about internet addiction and how people freak out when they lose it.

You can watch the whole thing here (legally you crybabies).

Let's just say, I don't think the people who run PBS shop at Wal-Mart . . .

Sweet! Enjoy it! My only complaint on the show lately is I wanna see more of Jack.

trying to watch past before I watch current - just watched the episode where Zach gets his Phd and Angie 'cleans' him up.

Despite a little claustrophobia of my own, the buried in the car one is a favorite

less Jack? = not good

thank you again, Rain

My absolute favorite South Park episode (even more than Wal-Mart) was 'Make Love, not Warcraft'.
