I've seen it once, do I have to see it again?

Dear people who plan the TV schedule:

Could you please program some new episodes of the TV shows I watch? By no means am I a big TV watcher, but I do have a few shows I enjoy watching each week. And I'm spread the TV watching love around, I watch multiple networks.

But I've been a little unhappy with my viewing choices the last few weeks. Last night, to pass the time, I was watching something called Cheerleader U on WE. And I don't even like cheerleaders all that much.

I've been left with no choice though.

Gilmore Girls? I can't remember the last time you aired a new episode.

Grey's Anatomy? Ditto. And don't even get me started on that whole spin-off thing. I'm quite upset and not ready to talk about it yet.

Lost? You folks at ABC are airing new episodes. And I used to watch you. But then you made the really stupid decision to go on some kind of hiatus from November to late February. Not cool. So I ditched you from my TV watching line up. So you can brag all you want about having new episodes, but you won't get this viewer back.

Friday Night Lights? You folks at NBC are still on my good side. I've been getting new episodes on a weekly basis. Of course, you're probably due for a rerun or two pretty soon and then we'll see what our friendship is like.

24? Yes, I'm quite pleased with you Fox. Whoever was the genius who came up with airing all the episodes in a row, uninterrupted deserves a pat on the back. Or a medal. Or whatever else you give people in the TV world who make good decisions.

Well, I guess it's about time to start channel surfing again, to find something to pass the time until the local news comes on or I can settle in with my book. Wonder what kind of fun stuff I'll find tonight.

I totally agree.

And isn't the next Friday Night Lights the season finale? I thought I heard that ...

Is it really? I missed the previews for next week.

And someone's having a baby. Or, at least that's how it sounds ... Ah, network TV.
