Unreality TV

According to the Nielsens, Monday's interview by Brit Hume (also known as Bush Bootlicker) of President Bush on the Fox network finished dead last in the ratings for that time slot, behind some lame comedies and an NFL game that was a thirty-point blowout. Now, if it had been a reality show, maybe...

"That is a sorry state of affairs," said Robert Thompson, director of the Center for the Study of Popular Television at Syracuse University. "I think most people, when they heard that the interview was going to happen, just assumed they weren't going to hear anything new that they hadn't already heard."
