I guess I didn't understand your statement, then - I thought you were talking about TV made SOLELY for snark.

The VH1 stuff, I'd say that was made solely for ratings.
It's made for people that like snarky TV. VH1's ratings are miniscule, but, are good enough. They're a niche business.

Gotcha.

I do like to snark, but don't watch shows solely for snarkworthiness.

And I suppose half the shows on VH1 these days (Best Day/Week/Year Ever, any of those Best Songs of ...) are nothing but lists and snark.

So maybe they're not putting on shows so the viewers can snark - maybe they're making the shows so they can snark themselves!

I watch maybe 3-4 shows religiously, that's about it.

My default channels, if just flipping around, are Travel Channel, Discovery or History. Travel is my favorite, though.

Rough times at the house today...I got in a fight with my dad last night during the game concerning a certain interception Favre threw.

Ruh-roh! What exactly is there to argue about? Favre threw it, wrong guy caught it.

I know that's pretty damned simplistic.

Le sigh.
Well, it was actually the first pick. He argued that it was a bad idea to throw the pass because he wasn't in the greatest position to, and I argued that it was a smart throw because the receiver was single-covered near the endzone and waving to Favre.

Then it turned into a shouting match, but about other issues.

And we haven't talked much since.

I'm off. Finally time to go, after one of the longest afternoons in recent memory.

Toodles!

That's happened to my Dad and I. Not for years now, but, when I was your age, it would now and then.

We'd stand on ceremony for like a day, then one of us would break the ice, usually me by looking at him with an angry face and say "Are you banging my Mother?".
