How to fill void of no tv? With tv, duh.

Sure, there's that little "writer's strike", and shows are derailed (Leno, Letterman, Daily Show, etc). Wah wah wah.

Ok, I do shed a slight tear for Friday Night Lights and The Office. After that I miss The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

How can one find a way to fill that void? Which, in 2003 was 1,745 hours a year, or 145 hours a month, which is six complete days of TV a month. Ah, if only. No no, or yes. Either way.

How to fill the void? Sure, there's weird answers like reading, or exercise or even . . . human interaction.

But forget that crazy wacko hippy stuff. If I want to waste time, I'll go hug a tree (and I have the t-shirt to prove it). Here are REAL options:
  • Sports - its competition, usually violence, hero worship, and fits the stupid "reality" genre (it's real people so it's reality)
  • Cable - There's this Home Box Office thing, I heard in the 80's it was pretty sweet. I also heard they had a popular show about NJ recently, I dunno
  • YouTube - If you really search YouTube, you really should try hugging a tree, it's more fulfilling
  • Surfing - Just straight out interweb surfing, that was big in the late 90's, so it's delightfully old school
  • TV online - All those weirdo networks, they put almost all their shows online. Here's The Office, enjoy.
So there's 5 easy options. Be about it.
