I like seeing how the Countdown staff brings good reporting from the blogosphere and puts it into full motion video. And I like listening to Keith Olbermann, though sometimes I think he’s in my head, broadcasting from the best seats in the passionate but well-reasoned section. And sometimes I just hope he’ll join me for a platonic cup of coffee.
But then we get into the stuff that’s harder to justify. Take “What Not to Wear.” (Yes, I usually know, but I consider this a televised master class. Except for those painful, dated-looking kimono dresses.) I have a potato-chip bag problem with just about everything on TLC – as in, I can’t stop ’til I get to the bottom of the bag.
And perhaps worst of all, I still laugh out loud at Reno 911! , but only when Ben is asleep.
