Of All the Nerve



Here it was, 10 p.m. on a Saturday night and I settle in to watch The Wanda Sykes Show on the Fox network.
Oh, no. That's not Wanda!
It's the tail-end of a NASCAR race.
I don't watch that crap; I have no idea how long 36 laps take, so I am stuck, waiting, trying not to watch, finding the Southern drawls of the race announcer extremely annoying, there's some guy named Bush in the lead...wait...am I being punked?!
For Fox to allow this crap to bleed into Wanda Sykes's time slot, well they must not know that NASCAR is pretty much the opposite of Wanda Sykes.
That means people tuning in to see Wanda will change the channel, and people watching NASCAR until it's over, when Wanda Sykes comes on they'll change it.
Their stupidity is causing me to suffer, and I hate that!

You could have saved yourself from the monumental dullness of cars going round and round by watching the golf instead, KZzzzzzzzzz!

At least golf is quieter, but I don't watch it, either.

Shit.

NASCAR is racing's WWE. It's all rigged.

Lulu, Fox has two channels, the one with "news" and the one that features a heapin' helpin' of trashy, funny and often liberal TV shows. Go figure. I guess Rupert Murdoch will do anything for a buck.
As for NASCAR, if country & western music was a sport, it'd be NASCAR. It attracts the lowest lifeforms, wastes gas, pollutes the air and has no socially redeeming qualities whatsoever.
I'd rather watch curling.

Fox is clearly airing more prime-time NASCAR races this year, and it's likely that some of them will run into Wanda's time slot. Her show isn't safe anywhere east of the Rockies.

She needs to find another network home, stat.

fox entertainment is quite different than faux news. would faux news run family guy? of course, they're both owned by uncle rupie, so that goes to show you what a hypocrite princess sarah is. if she was so upset over the family guy episode with the girl with down syndrome, why does she continue to take a paycheck from the man who finances family guy? the obvious answer, of course, is that princess loves money, and she doesn't give a shit where it comes from.
