Well I hate TV! there is nothing on it.  Its just a horrid waste of time.  (This is why i refuse to spend any money and buy one at the moment)  There is rarely anything on that i watch.  I watch Futurama, and sports.  Nothing else.  ok ok ok I some times watch MTV when im at a friends dorm or at home but i really cant just sit and watch tv.. every thing is just so bad and unentertaining.

i really do though!! I get so frusturated when im around a TV and nothing is on... I guess i just have a short Attention span so i get really bored watching it.  I would rather work out or sleep or surf the web or pull out my own teeth when it comes to daytime TV.  I mean every so often there will be somthing worthwile on but that is Rarely more than once a week (Sundays at 6 or Thursdays at 8:30) Even with sports there are only usually a few good games on a month, Football season is the time for me, I can watch TV all day.. just cause its football.  After that there is just so little on other than futurama, ill catch the occasional Laker game, or Zona game, or the Dodgers, but other than that I hardly like what is on TV.

I am taking a class on TV (Com arts 351) and the more I hear about it the less I like it which is the complete opposite of the Film classes I take, the problem is the shows that do well are ALWAYS original, but the networks seem to always choose shows that are nothing more then rip offs of other shows.

The TV itself is good, but not necessarily the shows on it. It's necessary for DVDs and video games, though. It's the same reason one buys a stereo just for their CDs if there's nothing good on the radio stations.

I missed it. To me the ads seemed like the "I wish I was Drew Carry" show. (spelling?)

Wasn't there also a show (I think on FOX) where a guy had a talking dog puppet that only would talk to him. He lived in his basement or something.
I give Greg the Bunny 2 Seasons.

Two seasons is awfully generous. I can't see it lasting more than six episodes. Actually I guess I can, since viewers are such idiots. But I don't know, for some reason I just don't think it'll last long.

P.S. The other talking bunny show was Unhappily Ever After.

Ok, I just watched it. Not too bad, but I didn't find myself laughing all that much (blah) except I did find the count funny  (blah) just because of the way he said blah quickly after everything.
But I still give it 2 seasons.

I can't believe I caught some of it, but after seeing it I say GTB will have a similar lifespan to The Chamber. Andy Richter's show was lame too, can't anyone make a decent new sitcom? The last new one that I liked was Just Shoot Me, and that's been out for years.

Okay, here comes BBT, Queen of Watching Crappy Television.  I have seen A LOT of crummy TV in my time.  I'm a sucker for mid-season shows, so here's what I've seen and my assessment of it.

Watching Ellie- Part "Caroline in the City", Part "24", this show is all crap.  I mean, what the heck is the point of the show?  I can't even take it seriously because of that stupid clock at the bottom of the screen.

Baby Bob- The dumbest show I have ever seen in my life.  'Nuff said.

Leap of Faith- A bad "Sex and the City" rip-off.  It was okay for the first fifteen minutes, but the main girl freaks me out.  She looks too much like someone I know.  I only saw one episode, but one ep is enough.

Andy Richter- I didn't see all of it, but it looked really dumb.  I'd rather be watching Elimidate for the rest of my life.

And finally and most importantly...
Greg the Bunny- Okay, maybe it's the head cold talking, but I actually liked this show.  Maybe I just like seeing Seth Green and Jim's Dad.  And Greg's just so freakin' cute!  They were all cute!  Sure, the storyline's incredibly lame.  But I liked the "Snowball" song.  smile

Anyway...

I saw G the B yesterday and luckily didn't have my hopes so high, because I thought for the most part it was okay. I'd actually prefer the style of Andy Ritcher, and plus I miss that guy in Conan.

Yeah-heh, I watched most of it because I love crap. This wasn't as crappy as I had hoped though. It ended up just being kinda lame. I was hoping I could revel in the crappiness, like I do each week with Baby Bob. But nope, it's both too lame and not lame enough for me to watch. I give it a big thumbs down.

Baby Bob = so crappy it's almost entertaining to watch

Greg the Bunny = just kinda crappy.

Caught part of the Bill O'Reilly special in the break room at work. Anyone else see it?

Bill O'Reilly, spinmaster of "The No-Spin Zone" (which is, of course, 100% self-righteous spin), lamented how media is destroying American youth with sex and violence--and of course, provided endless examples of said sex and violence, including clips from American Pie and I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.

And, of course, he did it on FOX.   roll eyes

The same network that gave us "Celebrity Boxing" is complaining that the media is corrupting American youth.

That just reminded me of a quote from "Josie and the Pussycats".  laff
Anyway, neither Baby Bob nor Greg the Bunny will last very long.  I mean, how long can they drag out a baby talking for?  In eighteen years it's like, "He's graduating high school AND he can talk!"

Well, I agree with Theta. Baby Bob can't last long, otherwise people will wonder why 10 years has gone by and he's still a baby. From what I heard, he doesn't sound much like one anyway. Of course for some strange reason, it works for the Rugrats.

I've not seen Greg the Bunny. I'm still getting over why it was created in the first place smile

Ratings indicate Greg held onto the audience from its lead-in (Bernie Mac), but we'll see how long that lasts...Baby Bob came in ELEVENTH in the Nielsens. That does it; I'm moving back to Urectum.

I think one reason it works for RugRats is that they can use animation to do things you could never do (or things that would be hideously expensive to do) in live action like have the babies imagine themselves in the story of Passover.

Does anyone remember the short-lived "Look Who's Talking" TV Series?  Sure the parent's never heard the baby's talking, but it's the same concept.  IIRC, towards the end of that show you could tell the "baby" (now a toddler who for some reason was still talking in "baby talk" ) was actually talking and they were just removing what he said.

Baby Bob might be good for a season with some good writing but basing the whole premise on "baby can talk" will get old around the time the baby should actually begin talking.  Either that or every season Baby Bob would look slightly different as they replace "aging" babies with younger ones.  After all, you can't have a two-year old baby Bob.

The only way that show will survive is if in the later years the focus changes on other characters, which would then make a mockery of its title "Baby Bob".

The only part I really laughed at in that Greg the Bunny ep. was the last part. "Aw, look at that kid smiling."  "Now he's foaming at the mouth." "One kid's writhing on the floor." "Oh my god, you've given them seizures." Please note I said thae was the ONLY part I laughed at.

I don't know how they did it, but Fox hooked me.  GtB has now reached no. 3 on my list of favorite shows, even beating out "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"!  eek   If anyone knows how to cure this disease, let me know.
FYI- Has anyone seen the shorts that aired on the Independant Film Channel?  I watched a couple at some site.  They were pretty funny, but I didn't need to know Greg had sex with a lobster.  no no   eek
