What the hell? Why isn't UPN showing wrestling? There's no breaking news or anything- just the same crap over and over again. And it's not even their own news... it's FOXNews. FOXCrap. This war isn't going to last three days- there's no use in oversaturating your network with "news."

For real though. It's not as if I can't turn to 30 other channels and watch the exact same non-news. If The Simpsons gets pre-empted by news for any reason, innocent people are going to die.

This is what I hate about it. They can't get their own crew to cover it, so they just show the EXACT SAME THING that's on Fox. Just so they can have "news" on. Jeez.

On an unrelated note, I'm an idiot. I took at look at that new picture on top of the Wienerboard front page and thought "hey....those 4 guys look a lot alike..."

Unfortunately, channel 9 (in the NYC/NJ area) is a Fox affiliate that happens to carry UPN's programming, and apparently it's under orders to just show the Fox news tonight.

What's irritating about this is that channel 5 is -already- showing the exact same feed ... and so, of course, is Fox News Channel. Welcome to the world of media consolidation.

I had to find an... alternative source for Smackdown, and it was worth it. Pretty good show. I do wish the podunk station here in town would pull their heads from their asses and not replay the fox feed as well though.
