I just checked the tv schedule for tonight. It is rainy, dreary and a good night to settle down in front of the television with a good book. Yes, I do multitask when I sit in front of the television.
I flicked through my favorite channels which happen to be the networks ABC, CBS and NBC. It absolutely is a guy’s night. I know there are women that are absolute fanatics about sports but I am not one of them!
Here are my choices tonight on those channels. They are football, racing and wrestling. They are catering to the men tonight. I think they should have gotten together and put one wow show on one channel for us women that are not sports enthusiasts.
You might argue that there are many channels to watch on my cable network. All of the channels except for a few seem to think no one watches television at this time of year. They are all repeats or reruns. Can’t we be a little creative during August on a Saturday night? There are those of us that are tv junkies, especially on a rainy evening.
I know whine, whine, whine. I said I wasn’t going to do that any more. Well, I lied. At least I have my Kindle and tons of books to read. At least Bookbub and Inspired Reads realize that new books are important and let me download some free ones every day. They need to nudge the networks and let them know what we women like.
Wouldn’t it be cool if our cable channel and the networks put out enough programs that they could send us a menu like BookBub and Inspired Reads? It would give us a choice of watching something new if we didn’t like what was programmed to be on their channel that night. We would push a button and CBS, instead of NFL Football, would give us choice of three new episodes of three different programs. I told you I was a dreamer.
After all my searching I found a program to watch tonight that I might like. It is called “Cat From Hell.” A guy who is somewhat a cat whisperer helps people fix problems with their cats. It is on the Animal Channel. At least the Animal Channel entices us with one new program hoping we will watch the same channel the rest of the night. I’ll have to check to see if “Bad Dog” follows the “Cat From Hell” I love those naughty puppies as long as they are not mine.
Enough whining. I wish the sports fans well tonight. I hope they enjoy their games and their races and their wrestling. Those remotes are going to be busy flicking from one program to the other. That might be more than any remote can survive.
