Maybe it's my NPD, but I cannot watch this shit from beginning to end anymore. In fact, I don't watch anything live except maybe hockey or baseball or the occasional state funeral. We've got that thing where you can pause live TV, so if I'm watching something, like say CNN, I pause it, make a sandwich (or take a dump) and give myself that ten minutes delay so I can fast forward commercials. I hate commercials. Especially for pills. Ask your doctor about drugs? Shouldn't your doctor tell you what drugs you need? He's not a bartender. And CNN, when it's bad, is really not much better than RAW. Soledad O'Brien doing a Black in America special, because she's 1/16th Afri-Cuba-Merican, is just as insulting as Beth Phoenix/Kelly Kelly MCMLX. Their headquarters is in Atlanta and they can't find black people? She's only about one shade darker than Conan O'Brien. Jesus!
Anyway, I tape RAW. So yeah. I fast-forward on average two segments, some weeks three, but I have noticed I basically always watch the opening and closing segments no matter how little interest I have in them. So there's that.
Originally posted by CRZI think what Charles was attempting to say in his own way was that you kinda suck at being Andy Rooney.
That and "your white ass shouldn't have any say in who should or shouldn't be doing specials on being black in America".
If it matters I'm biracial But didn't mean to offend.
That actually makes it worse. You telling me no one's ever said to you "you're not (insert race here) enough"? You being biracial and saying that to O'Brien makes you a bigger asshole in this situation than I thought you were.
If you turn into me, though, and repeatedly forget to set the VCR(let alone put a tape in) you're back to square one. So get a Tivo. Schedule it to record Raw every Monday. If you want, get a VCR to archive.
