Well! Now that we have a new actor on Two and a Half Men, all is right with the world. No, not really! Wasn’t it a nice thought? Everyone is still talking about Charlie Sheen. Why? This among many things have really been bothering me. Such as, Dating, TV Programming, High Schoolers doing things to warrant lots of attention, celebrity interviews and so on. So, can we talk!
Ashton Kutcher Ready for Prime Time
So here comes Ashton Kutcher to hopefully solve the CBS sitcom blues. And, if we are lucky enough, we shall not hear from Mr Tiger Blood and his Pornettes ever again. The media has given him enough press and air time to last a century. I have only seen a few Two and a Half Men over the years. Never really liked the show. If the new shows with Ashton have decent scripts, I might tune in.

Found a story about a couple in their 90’s who had met once again long after a first date. This couple fell in love and recently became husband and wife. Awe! I know! Sweet, right?
Then, I look on my friends Facebook page and I see that her son has listed his status as “in a relationship.” He’s 11.
My sister-in-law is on her 3rd marriage. That’s ok! An ex-coworker is juggling 3 men at the same time. Good Luck! The singer John Mayer has dated every girl and woman in the world. Almost! Even Arnold Schwarzenegger is married and uh, uh dates? I need to get out more.

Time for the TV Networks to clean house… as it were. The time is now for these programs to say Farewell! Adieu! Sayonara!
Law & Order – all of them. Gotta say goodbye.
CSI – all of them And, I never understood why they called it CSI Miami when it is filmed in California.
Criminal Minds – Both Programs
Can we just take the TLC Network off the air?
So Called – Reality Shows
Biggest Loser and So Many More
And since I am talking TV, what can be done about Cable or Satellite TV? I am really of the mind that we should be able to pick the programs we want to watch. Why do people pay for 600 channels when they only watch 10? I am really considering dropping it all together. I am still appalled that these companies continue to get away with it. I must say though, I do have my own namesake channel. The Barbie Channel! AT&T Uverse channel 85 .

The high school senior that put up large block letters on his high school, asking his girlfriend to the prom and subsequently being banned from that prom, has been making the rounds on every stinking news show in the country. When are we as a nation going to stop this? Anyone can do something stupid, silly, against the rules or even dangerous and then be flown cross-country, put up in a swanky hotel and plaster their face on the TV to be interviewed as if they were Rock Stars. The news shows get great attention ratings by having everyone participate in this crap. Why do you think they say to “log in to our Facebook page and tell us how you feel.” NO!
The school has now given in to all this national pressure. The young man can go to the prom after all. So after that announcement, he’s back on the news again. This time with attitude. He was told that the school superintendent will have a different punishment for him. He blatantly said to one NBC news producer ” I am not accepting any kind of punishment.” Oh, that’s right, you’re a star. This was all such a stunt for publicity. And boy, was he rewarded!
Perhaps there are some others that should be rewarded? Our young soldiers go to war every day and risk death for America’s Freedom. How many of those get treated to private jets, hotels and numerous such amenities for putting their life on the line for us? How Many are treated as a rock star? How are they rewarded?

Local programming is really pretty darn good. In Southwest Michigan we have a local show that really does promote local business, entertainment and current events. A great perk of being a host on that show is they preview all movies, TV shows and travel a great deal to interview major stars! I am so jealous!
Dustin Hoffman as Shifu
One host recently traveled out of the country to interview the stars of Kung Fu Panda 2. Now in 3D. She loved Dustin Hoffman. “So nice, polite. He was great.” The host remarked.
Angelina Jolie as Tigress
Jack Black was interviewed and was very funny and talked a lot. When the host interviewed Jack, Angelina was there. All this host could say was, “Boy is she bony. She didn’t say much at all. Very reserved. Seemed like she was not friendly. And she really is bony.” “I guess we all had her pegged a long time ago.” I’m thinking,… did you ask any intelligent questions? Did you ask Jack Black when he was going to loose weight? Or, perform Shakespeare?
Glad I wasn’t the one being interviewed by that host. I may have been tempted to slap you! :) Her comments went on for a while and were just mean-spirited. I think she was Just Jealous!
