Is TruTV Dead yet..?

Seriously, they haven’t shown anything but two shows in over a month.

Quite possibly two of the worst programs imaginable; Impractical Jokers and The Carbonaro Effect, are the only programming this channel has left.  Did they pack up and go home in September, and just leave the cheapest shows they could find running on a loop?

We used to tune into this channel now & then, but that stopped months ago. The  shows that kept us from being regulars, are now the only ones they are showing at all.

Streaming’s sudden popularity is no mystery at all.

Some channels, like TruTV, just stopped trying to win viewers altogether.

My Netflix account is finally paying off in spades, so…

Thanks for sucking so hard, TruTV.

Thanx For Suckin’ so Much, TBS

Not too long ago, TBS was a daily staple for us; Every day after work, we would tune in for a few episodes of comfortable favorites Friends and Seinfeld, and then Big Bang Theory at 8.  Except for Mondays, of course.

Mondays on #TBS meant lowest common denominator programming, ie: Cartoons. Those embarrassingly stupid, blatantly pointless wastes of time and brain cells that are apparently designed for consumption by the drunken masses.

On Mondays, we would go straight to Netflix for the night, because TBS had let us down.  It wasn’t a huge deal, especially now that Netflix had acquired a ton of new shows. So, thanks to a bad choice by TBS, our Mondays were streaming nights.

Recently however, those alarmingly stupid shows that dominated Mondays just became an every day thing at the Totally Bad Shows station.

Those adult cartoons are now running every night, all night long  Seriously, TBS?

Are your kids choosing programming now? Then let your kids watch it. Because we haven’t tuned into your channel in weeks, and you know how habits get started…

On the brighter side; Netflix has just become our favorite way to spend some time in front of the television, and both we and the flix owe it to your sucking ways, TBS.

So, this isn’t so much a complaint as a thank you note.

Thanks for sucking the big one, #TBS!
