I must disagree with:
TV Poker,
Fox News Channel,
and of course Girls Next Door.

I can live with Mama's Family - especially when Carol Burnett guest starred.

Lindsay's Mom... yes! Must go!

Q--
Are you kidding me????? First of all, FNC is about as fair and balanced as Jango's sleeping schedule.

And TV poker? Tell me, where's the entertainment value in watching some guy play cards in cheap sunglasses, and a visor from the casino gift shop? And they show this $#!t on every single channel...including the Travel Channel. What's a poker have to do with vacation planning?

As for TGND, please go watch it in a locked room.

Mark--
I knew if anyone was going to defend Mama's Family it would be you...after all, Rue McClanahan was in it. And while I agree about Carol Burnett, Ken Berry peaked at Mayberry, RFD and Dorothy Lyman's character just grated on my nerves.

I feel a song coming on..

"To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star"

but wait..what if O'Reilly decided to enter politics if his "News" program was cancelled?

Ms. Val said...

HE--
{{{{shudder}}}} I can hear the thunder in the background as storm clouds gather over my house. Q is an O'Reilly fan...except that he hasn't made time to watch him lately. That's one of the good things about baseball season.

Bill O'Reilly = Limbaugh Lite

That's a strong love you've got there...if I heard Bill O'Reilly's lying voice on my television, I'd be divorced in a hot minute. Does he watch it for the comedy value?

I adore Mama's Family!

Christopher--
Well, with 5 TVs in this house, he's pretty good about going into another room to watch BOR.

As for Mama's Family, we'll have to agree to disagree.
