Well, now that Rockstar is over, I really don’t know what to write about. I had mentioned something about photos in the past, and I have posted a couple of them. However, I haven’t been too much up to wanting to go through again and just say, OK, I’m posting this picture; it’s of this or that and I think that’s cool. One thing that I should consider is things that might seem boring to me can be very interesting to people who read the net. There are some downsides to posting about things around me and that is the fact that I don’t want to give away too much information about where exactly I live.
I realized tonight that with both Big Brother and Rockstar finished, the viewing choices on TV are reduced; however, there are a few new shows coming on next week that look really interesting. First off is an offering on CBS called Jericho – Wednesdays at 8, I believe. It’s about a small town in Kansas that becomes the focus of attention in a doomsday-style scenario involving the bomb. However, the ads lately have been stale.
Other shows that look interesting to me are two shows on NBC – Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and 30 Rock. Studio 60 is produced and written by the same crew that did The West Wing, and goes behind the scenes of producing dramatic television on the West Coast; 30 Rock is basically a sitcom based on going behind the scenes of Saturday Night Live, and has received the blessing of Loren Michels.
Incidentially, I did watch the premiere of Survivor – all the complaining about the racism isn’t what got me, but more or less a general lack of anything at all to watch on the other 60-some channels. In fact, the decision to split the contestants by ethnicity is probably one of the more interesting things that they’ve done lately and most likely (and cynically) a way to get people watching the show again. Aside from this bizarre “exile island” thing, it’s the same old show of old, with the competitions and everything, the only real thing is that it’s more diverse than it has been in the past due to the fact that they split them up.
Also, I’m watching the UK Rock Hall of Fame ceremonies on VH1 right now. The fella that goes out on stage to speak between awards is very familiar to me; I know his voice, but I just can’t for the life of me remember where I saw him…..ah, here we go … Dermot O’Leary – one of the hosts of Big Brother in the UK
