Actually since the election when I got the TV antenna I’ve been watching more TV sometimes as background noise. Some of the things that I’ve noticed/remembered. Commercials played during shows are always exactly the same every single time the show plays. Right now it seems to be mostly cable companies and people talking about the switch to digital TV. That and the new drugs with always hilarious side effects such as headaches, dizziness, drymouth, diarrhea, flu, stomach pains, suicidal thoughts, death etc.

The news is always stuff that I’ve already read online by the time it’s on the news, plus news from the previous day that they need to fill in the rest of the half hour. Then the usual fluff. It still amazes me that there are 24 hour news channels when the half hour news is so boring and repetitive.
