During the week, I hardly remember that I have a TV. I'll sit on my couch, look at my TV, and be like, "I'm bored; what can I do?" Then I'll look at my TV for another 10 seconds or so, shrug my shoulders, and go into my room to crank out another 300 push-ups and 500 sit-ups. So I'm not one of those TV people.
However, thanks to the World Series sucking balls so hard, I flipped through the channels during baseball one night and found Friday Night Lights. Now, I understand that people who tell you that you just have to watch a show are assholes who are just forcing their interests on you, but… you have to watch this show. I know it's confusing, because it's called Friday Night Lights and it's usually on Tuesdays, only tonight it's on Monday, up against Sunday Night Football which is also now on Mondays, but take some time out tonight to watch this show. It's on at 10 p.m. on NBC. Oh, and all times are Eastern, because the Midwest is dead to me.
Then, at 11 o'clock, skip the local news (today's headline: somebody got shot) and watch the Daily Show, where King James, Monsieur LeBron Himself, will be the guest during Jon Stewart's week of recording the show from Ohio. I guess Carl Monday wasn't available.
Finally, if you get really bored and "Two and a Half Men" just isn't bringing the laughs like it usually does, check out Monday Night Football, Pats at Vikings. You can marvel at
John Madden's plasticky blubber Tony Kornheiser's lazy combover in HD, and — if we're lucky — Tom Brady will cuddle a goat.
