To Help You In This Busy Season, Here Are TV News Headlines For the Rest of 2010 — 7 Comments

  1. great post-so true. I remember the days of doing the day after Thanksgiving shopping rush and the free dinners on Thanksgiving. Its the same shit different year. You hit the nail on the head.

  2. I don’t have office parties. I don’t do Thanksgiving and thereby save 5500 calories. We are not exchanging gifts this year since none of us really need anything. I don’t go to church and don’t do Black Friday shopping (I hate crowds). I don’t even have a recliner and a big-ass TV. But, I will be putting up some Christmas decorations and lift a glass of something on New Year’s Eve.

  3. This is how I know you come from a newspaper background. Because you and I both know that every newspaper in the country has a file full of these articles that get trotted out year after year and are only slightly updated with fresh quotes, new photos, or updated statistics. It’s the same way Cosmopolitan magazine manages to run the same ten stories issue after issue for 45 years.

  4. @Brian: never said differently. Just newspaper aren’t limited to 12 minutes to present 14 “stories.” You’re right and we just skip over them because they are equally lame.
