Ugly Betty, and TIVO woes

I still love Ugly Betty, even though Rich is getting tired of her. So he didn't really watch last night. I'm not sure if I liked the episode (I mean, it had to happen....we couldn't have had Betty really leave Mode, could we? What about Mark? I don't think I could live very long without Mark?), and I think I know why.

I really only want to watch her nephew. Why can't we have a new TV show called "Gay Hispanic Adolescent Boy"? And if Mark was there too?

Ahhhhh, heaven.


And WTF is wrong with our TIVO? It didn't record ER last night (yes, we still watch...we're the two people in the civilized world who don't like Grey's Anatomy). And our Season Passes are all messed up. Anyone know what's up?

Sad news today. But after last month's Chrismukkah episode, are we really surprised?

**Edited to add: A commenter on my other blog popped in to give me this good news.

Welcome! And Show Me the Money!

TV is an important part of our family's life.

I admitted it. You need to admit it too. (Unless you don't own a TV.) (Why would you read this if you don't own a TV?)

Last night we needed the kids to chill the eff out, and we were so so so so so so tired of watching Christmas movies. So we did what we always do in that situation: watch a new wacky game show.

"Show Me the Money" is the triple threat: trivia, go-go dancers, and William Shatner! But the part that made me pee a little was the part where William effing Shatner disco dances with the first contestant. Oh my goodness. That was amazing!

Trivia questions: were challenging. I don't think I would win the big money on this show, although I did know that Lillian Hellman wrote Pentimento because I took "Women's Autobiographies" in college.

Game premise: Like Jeopardy only just one contestant at a time. And go-go dancers. Who are HOT and all have names!

Shatner: amazing. Perfect. But the kids say Howie Mandel (the host of Deal or No Deal) is better.

Will we watch again? Probably, especially if the TV offerings don't improve over the next few weeks.
