Is there really nothing on TV?
On more than one occasion I've heard a family member, friend, or stranger claim they watched something lackluster on television because "there was nothing else on." I've always found this statement odd, as it implies that even if there's nothing on, you still have to watch TV. I can't think of any other medium where people do this. I've never walked up to someone reading a book and had them exclaim, "God, this Michael Crichton novel is horrible, but there's no other books in my house, so I have to read it." Anyway, if you tend to watch TV just because it's there, you should know it's that kind of attitude that keeps shows like Scrubs on the air, and nobody wants that.
