They Didn’t Just Do That!

I need to vent, complain, bitch about and otherwise condemn Fox News Chicago. Last night I was watching “24”. I know some people think his season isn’t worth watching, I still enjoy it. It was raining pretty hard and I was getting weatherbug alerts on my phone. There were no warnings going across the screen and no beeping from the national weather service. SO WHY DID FOX NEWS HAVE TO INTERUPT MY PROGRAM!!!

Amy Freeze (if that is her real name) had no reason to interrupt in the middle of the show. Had they waited about 3 minutes, they could have done their fair and balanced weather report on the commercial. Oh wait, then they wouldn’t be able to get paid for the advertising. Instead, they would rather piss off their viewers by telling them something they could have scrolled on the bottom of the screen. Oh wait, if they scrolled across the bottom of the screen that might cause them to not be able to have a moving advertisement for another show.

It really ticks me off that Fox has so many shows I like to watch. Maybe it is just Fox Chicago that has a bunch of morons. How about having some ask THEM the hard questions. Will Larry Yellen and his porn mustache answer or will they send the Jeff Goldblatt and his oddly shaped face and head after me.

I also should say their lead stories and teasers during the commercials are laughable. A “major” network news cast should not lead with the same stories as TMZ does. They can have them but, it should not be the teaser.

Ok, I am a little bitter and I obviously have issues with Fox Chicago news. Granted, my life will not end because I missed 2-3 minutes of 24. But come on, we can look out the window and see it is raining hard. I wonder how happy they would be if I interrupted their newscast with my video of me singing the Rainbow Connection.

At least they did one thing right by canceling “Sons of Tucson”. Then again, that is the network not the local. Speaking of which, NBC actually renewed “The Marriage Ref”???? Oh wait, they renewed Leno too didn’t they.

Until next time remember … “We’ve just got to accept the fact that Fox has to make room for terrific shows like “Dark Angel,” “Titus,” “Undeclared,” “Action,” “That 80’s Show,” “Wonderfalls,” “Fastlane,” “Andy Richter Controls the Universe,” “Skin,” “Girls Club,” “Cracking Up,” “The Pits,” “Firefly,” “Get Real,” “Freaky Links,” “Wanda at Large,” “Costello,” “The Lone Gunmen,” “A Minute With Stan Hooper,” “Normal, Ohio,” “Pasadena,” “Harsh Realm,” “Keen Eddie,” “The Street,” “American Embassy,” “Cedric the Entertainer,” “The Tick,” “Louie,” and “Greg the Bunny.” “

  1. UGH. I freaking HATE when the local channels interrupt a show!!
    And I don’t think Tiger or any well known figure has any place being in the news, unless they died, or caused someone else to die. In my fucking town. Otherwise, leave it for the tabloids.

  2. We saw that interruption as well but weren’t quite so freaked out about it. They transferred Hassan from the trunk to the building. Meh, whatever. He’s dead now.

    • I don’t think it was so much I missed a few minutes of 24 itself, it was more the principle of the thing. It was just rude to interrupt so a person who changed their name to get a job could be seen by people who otherwise wouldn’t watch their news broadcast. I’m not bitter though.
