man!

o boy.

I.  Can't.  Believe. It.

How stupid can one network be?

From digg

and  another


This article says it all for me!

I was almost *completely* off TV watching about 1-1/2 years ago.  Then iTunes posted this show called LOST.  I downloaded an episode because I had just bought a new video iPod and I was curious about how a TV show would look on it.  I got so hooked on the first episode that I downloaded the entire season (for about $40ish bucks) and watched them until 3am. 

Then I tracked down LOST fanfic and got even more hooked.

Then I found *other* shows on iTunes:  the new Battlestar Galactica and Heroes, for example.   Then Kyle XY.  I probably never would have gotten hooked on these shows without iTunes.  And I *WON'T" go back to watching them on a specific day, time, and with commercials.

Since that moment when I first downloaded LOST on iTunes I've become so much more involved with TV programming than I have in YEARS.  And I talk about these shows to friends, familys, and co-workers and THEY have gotten hooked on them and are either buying DVDs, watching commercial TV, or buying through iTunes. 

And I find other shows and music via these shows--and BUY all that STUFF!

Now NBC may be doing me a favor (my pocketbook and real-life free-time) in the long run. 

But they are just being stupid.

It may finally be time to get a TIVO.
