People Actually Watch the Stuff?

OK, so I was sitting a Chinese restaurant, waiting for my Szechuan chicken (carry-out of course), trying to read a copy of the paper someone had left. But a TV was on - an old rerun of Frasier. In the few minutes I had to wait, I saw some of the worst acting I've seen, Eastern (or would that be Californian?) stereotypes about farmers and rural America, and just plain insanity. And this was a popular show.

Even with it being so bad, it was hard to tune it out and concentrate on the paper. Maybe the medium really is the message.

I am so glad that I don't have television. I waste enough time on the internet.
