WTF? Wednesday - Media FAIL

Wednesday, December 9, 2009


I asked, you answered. Apparently, WTF? stays. However, it has been a slow news week my friends. I do have a few things to warrant a solid WTF? cause let's face it, I like to bitch about whatever makes me unhappy.  BTW - I found the pic I am using by Google(ing) WTF?  For real, it's that easy kids.

I will not be issuing any WTF?'s on the following today:  Tiger, The Sahali's, Tiger's Mother-in-Law, or any of the other over covered news stories this week.  I am tired of it too folks!


Neilsen Ratings - WTF?  I have bitched.  I have complained.  I have offered intelligent input.  Hell, hire me for your fucking crack team of technologists, I could do better.  Your ratings system?  FAIL!  Yeah, so I know you state you are covering all three viewing mediums, tv, computer and mobile device.  But clearly, people are watching programming that keeps getting canceled.  All based on your fucked up ratings system.  It's not possible that EVERY PROGRAM I watch on network television has three viewers.  I know that there are other people who like what I like.  Stop trying to make me think my viewing pleasures are that freaking offbeat.  WTF?  Fix your shit Yo!


CBS - WTF?  I love, love, love Alex O'Loughlin.  Love him!  He is like the freakin' hottest Aussie ever.  Sizzling!  I am still freaking bitter that you allowed the fucking writer's strike to kill Moonlight.  All vampires considered.  He was the hottest!  (Edward fans?  Step off!  Robert Pattison doesn't. even. come. close.)  We gathered in groups.  Signed digital protest forms.  We tried everything, and you heard our voices.  Yet you waited until all the actors had other obligations and you canceled our show.  Way to go morons.  Fast forward.  You clearly see the error of your ways. You employ Alex again, cause all the ladies love him.  We are clearly not as excited about seeing our ULTRASEXY vampire as a genius doctor, but we will watch just to fantasize about him alone later.  We watch.  You canceled the show already?  WTF?  I hate you CBS. 

(Ladies, really need I say more?)



Comcast - WTF?  You are now buying NBC Universal?  You can't get your cable programming to work efficiently.  Now you are going to flush what's left of the once fabulous "must see TV" down the toilet?  Great.  I think I am going to quit watching anything that doesn't come on either FOX, HBO or SHOtime.  Cause really, what's the point?  Canceled.  Canceled. Canceled.  Here is my 2 cents:  Leave Conan alone, I love him.  And Seth Meyers? Should do the news.  ALL OF IT.  Morning.  Noon.  Night.  Let Seth deliver me all my news.  Just the way I like it.  Seething with sarcasm and drenched with a wet dose of WTF?

Well my sweet peeps, that pretty much covers my WTF? Wednesday.  Next week we will do a special holiday edition of WTF?  Please feel free to take the logo from the top of the page.  Do your own WTF? and let me know.  I will add your links.  If you all want I will try and add Mr. Linky.

As always, I leave you with Love!  Happy Hump Day!

(NOTE:  Because I received soooooo many requests, I will be posting the recipe for PeanutButter Balls tomorrow.  Who loves you?)

I love Peanut Butter Balls! I'm so with u on everything getting cxld. It sucks!

Mad Woman said...

I don't think you love me at all unless those Peanut Butter Balls are guaranteed to NOT add 3 inches to my already over inflated ass. But I'll forgive you because you posted a picture of Alex. And he's all kinds of yummy! (He can also stick to my ass whenever he wants!)

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

I want to know why they cancel all the good shows and replace them with reality TV crap.

The Peach Tart said...

Good rant. I'm still excited about getting the peanut butter ball recipe.

Dual Mom said...

I'm going to do a WTF Wednesday. I love reading your WTF rants because I know shit about mainstream media, I have one tv channel. I did not know about the Walmart people until 3 days ago when Lee at Hotflashes told me about it. I think she fell out of her chair when I said "Who are these Walmart people you refer to?" So your posts are always informative and educational for me!

Ed Adams said...

Nielson doesn't know their ass from their mouth.

They always cause the good shows to get cancelled.

Why not the sucky ones?

How many doctor, lawyer, and cop shows do we effing need?

Give me a show about homeless cabdrivers who are attracted to farm animals and midgets anyday.

BigSis said...

Nothing says love like peanut butter balls!

Moooooog35 said...

Big Bang Theory.

WTF.

Self-explanatory.

Hissyfits & Halos said...

Yet, another post you can't seem to get through without mentioning balls. ;)

Dame Nuisance said...

Yeah, it seems like the shows I love get canceled. Men In Trees. Farscape. October Road. Loved them all, but no! The various networks killed them. Bastards. Thank God NBC is bringing Chuck back in January. I now have something to live for.

You and I should trade rants sometime - you can do a Misanthropic Monday post on my blog and I'll do a WTF? Wednesday post on yours ... I love to complain, bitch and rant. Yes. I. Do.

Peterson Family said...

I am pissed at CBS too. They cancelled As the World Turns which I DVR each and every frickin day. And then watch when my kids are in bed. But I bet I am not counted as a viewer. The ratings system is FUCKED UP! Maybe someone should send them a letter saying "There is this invention and it's called a DVR...maybe you have never heard of it you Dumbass."

Travis said...

Listen.

I just put peanut butter on my balls and gave them to The Missus, whereupon I was immediately slapped.

I didn't know they were a confection of some kind...

Yeah...

Neilson ratings? Huh?

Secret Agent K said...

Those ratings people are assholes cause not for nothin the only weirdo's ever came to ask me question were like, on bikes askin me bout God and stuff ya know?

Yea and thanks to Travis for THAT visual....

*crickets*

Daffy said...

So, the WonderPets are safe? What about YoGabba Gabba? I don't think I watch much else....

I didn't even know who Neilson was...I thought that was a 90's music group...the twins? with long hair?

Carol said...

PB Balls recipe - Woot!
You do love of us!!
And I would never know what is going on in TV land if it wasn't for you. It seems I am not missing a thing...

Noelle said...

um, yeah, i was wondering...will you post your recipe for peanut butter balls? please? huh? oh. ok. sorry.

Iva said...

woohooo!! I will be waiting for that recipe!!

Erin said...

Hooray for more talk about BALLS! I love new recipes.

And I am sick of the Tiger drama, too. I thought we could just have one celebrity who was nice/normal/an appropriate role model. But NO.

Shell said...

Every show I love ends up being cancelled. I just don't get it.

Cameron said...

you are right, the freaking nielson is a disaster and my shows always get cancelled too, what can we do SO IRRITATING!

MaeRae said...

okay, i guess that is what i get for being way down the list on the comments...everyone already used all the good ones. CBS seems like they are going to go the cheapest way out of anything and screw comcast, i think i will go back to verizon...every time i turn around they are jackin higher prices up my ass. Love your WTF's and they have to stay!
