Summer Television - What Were They Thinking??

Not that I don't have enough to do in the summer that I really need the television to fill up my time, but for the occassional time when I get a chance to rest my tired bum in a chair in front of the contraption, it would be nice if there was something on there worth watching.

And not that I don't like the idea of great celebrity impersonators or great inventors without the funds to get their ideas off the ground, the way these shows go about screening or whatever you what to call it, leaves something to be desired.

Even the commercials seem to have lost focus on what they are there for. Seems to me that anything that can take up time and space has a shot at getting on the boob tube these days!

Guess that's why the only thing I'm interested in watching is RFD-TV which has a great selection of natural horsemanship type trainers and other farm related stuff that makes sense to me. BUT my cable company doesn't even offer these channels. So I guess, for me, it'll be a long summer with little or no time in front of the television since my time would be much better spent taking a nap.

Hey, thatnks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog!

I agree about TV...we don't watch much, especially in the summer and the programming keeps getting worse every year...even with cable tv. During the winter the only thing I really watch (and I have to DVR it) is Dr. Phil and Oprah and Oprah is getting boring now too...all she does is interview celebrities...I want to hear from real people like us.
