I actually got home by 7:00p.m. tonight. This feels like a miracle. All I want to do is veg out on the couch in front of the TV. And what do the networks offer me? Crap!
You call these choices? For the lack of anything better, we're watching America's Got Talent. Eh, not so much. The English guy is an ass. Sharon Ozborne has obviously been talking baby talk to Ozzie for so many years that it's the only means of communication she has left. David Hasselhoff...what can I say? He's just really embarrassing to watch. You cringe every time he opens his mouth.
And the talent? I have no idea how far into the competition they are, but these folks have apparently made a bunch of cuts and we're down to either finalists or semi-finalists or something. So, the bad acts must have been cut by now?
So far, I've seen:
-A guy imitating Sinatra. (and forgetting the words)
-A guy doing opera.
-A four year old girl. (this must have been cute in the early rounds, but gimme a fucking break.
Sorry, the kid sucks.)
-And a young woman singing a Sarah McGlaughlin song. (without ever having learned how to avoid breathing into the mic.)
-There's an Elvis imitator coming on next.
There's another hour of this shit on but the alternatives aren't any more appealing.
I'm pleading with you all to provide some entertainment in the comments because, frankly, TV sure as hell isn't doing it tonight.
(BTW, I'd read some, but I have the attention span of a soap dish tonight.)
Update 9:26 p.m.: Well, I'm waiting!
