They don't want their anchors wearing bikinis down in Texas

This "Anchorwoman" Fox reality show is pretty fascinating. May even be good TV. Probably not good TV news, but good TV.

If she's in it... I'm watching! ;)

Yet another reason not to watch television. I long for the days of something worth watching on T.V. Makes me think of a Frank Zappa song.

"I'm the slime"

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged

I have existed for years
But very little had changed

I am the tool of the Government
And industry too

For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away

I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say

I am the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?

I am the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't got for help...no one will heed you

Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks..
Don't touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin'room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

That is what TV has finally come to.

What a prophet that Zappa dude was........

True that. I was kidding about the anchor woman show, but man... she's not hard on the eyes. ;)

Anywho... after this season (with so many shows getting the axe inside of 3 episodes) the wife and I are pretty much done with broadcast TV.

We're watching a lot more Showtime, HBO and FX. The Tudors on Showtime has been really good, and we're gonna rent Dexter when it drops.

Rome (on HBO) was absolutely fantastic. What's the word on Entourage and Carnivale?

FX has The Shield and Rescue Me (which we just started watching from Season 1 last night) - both are absolutely fantastic. The Riches looks good, but will have to catch that on re-runs. Glenn Close in Damages looks interesting too.

"Entourage" stars its next season in like two weeks -- weird HBO scheduling. I've seen them, they're OK. "Carnivale" was canceled, that one's not coming back.

I liked "The Riches" a lot. Haven't caught "The Tudors" yet, that one will have to wait for DVD.

So did Carnivale end without a proper conclusion then? If so... we'll bypass it. Bummer, it looks GOOD.

Yep, HBO pulled a "Jericho" on "Carnivale" fans.
