late night and the tv
Not really “late.”
“Late” for me and “late” for other people is very different. But I have been watching “late night” David Letterman [wow, someone else owns David Letterman dot com who is just dotty you should really fix that Uncle Dave] and Craig Ferguson [ditto for you Scottish guy] in a show of solidarity after Letterman’s Worldwide Pants signed the first deal with the WGA.
[WGA is the Writer’s Guild try to keep up.]
I do this because I figure my cable company is keeping track of who streams what I do not usually watch talk shows but Ferguson is really funny that was a surprise.
These shows air on CBS so I stayed on to watch the news tonight — CBS signed their news shows contract with the Guild [more solidarity] so I watched that too.
[U.S. news programs are so biased and weird mostly I get news from the internet from international sources.]
I have a few probs with the news show. It is not the commentary. It is not the subject matter. [Okay some of it is the subject matter.] The big thing though is, the newscasters.
Hello? One of the newscasters looks like an un-put-together children’s center administrator and the other looks like a Miss America drop out/stripper stuck into a high collared jacket with too long too bleached hair.
What is going on there? Hey, I wander out of the house in unfortunate sweats often but that is getting mail in the complex I live in. These are professional women who report the news on a major network station on camera. They should not look like either a washed out brunette with too heavy growing out bangs covering her ears like a thatch roof and misapplied eye liner or an over made up over bleached Miss America drop out wearing evening make-up during daylight hours.
Dear CBS. I am so impressed with your report. Please send your reporters to TLC’s What Not To Wear right now Nick Arrojo could really do them some favors in the hair department and also London and Kelly could fix those fashion dilemmas and also Carmindy could really help those girls out with the eye make up factor.
*note : on that content problem?, i thought heath ledger’s death might actually push Britney off page one but somehow heath’s death has been linked to britney in a way that embarrasses and distresses me in ways i cannot explain or fathom

At the corner convenience store the clerk asked me if I was on TV.
I asked if she was talking about America’s Most Wanted or Something. She laughed and said, “No, you are the lady on the news, right?”
I thought that might be a complement, but now I am thinking I need to go back to that store and have a word with the clerk. It’s been ages since I’ve watched the news.
Wow. I wonder what you allegedly did.
She’s asked me twice if I’m a newscaster. I thought maybe it was because I’m so friendly since I wasn’t wearing makeup or dressed too nice.
I was watching Entertainment Tonight and they actually managed to link how Ledger and Anna Nicole Smith died… There are some very tenuous similarities, like (get ready) both were on pills!
I keep it simple.
I watch the Animal Planet Channel.

I’d have to say “heavy growing out bangs covering her ears like a thatch roof” does it for me…
