Stupid Human Television


I don't understand human television. I don't get why humans wouldn't watch a show of nothing but dogs. After all, the Puppy Bowl pulls major viewership each year!

CBS has a tv show called Big Brother. We don't watch it, but we have a basic understanding of what the show is about.

For some reason, my Human decided to stay up late on Monday night watching some of a 3 hour show on the one of the many Showtime network stations we get. The show was called Big Brother After Dark. It was "live" feed of the people who live in the Big Brother house. My Human watched about 1/2 an hour of these 2 female humans curling their eyelashes and blow drying their hair. My Human listened to a 15 minute conversation about dental retainers. One of the Big Brother females will have to wear a lower retainer for the rest of her life. They my Human watched this same female cut a bagel, put it into a toaster oven, then put cream cheese on it and eat each half very slowly over the course of a 1/2 hour.

The retainer wearing slow bagel eating woman was evicted from the Big Brother House last night.

I tell you what, humans (mine in particular) are even more stupid than I previously thought!

Why DO humans watch some of the things they do? I'd rather stare out the window at cats and bunnies!

Humans do watch some weird stuff, don't they? Our humans like some UK car show called Top Gear that they think is hysterical! WE want Animal Planet!

Mistress has watched that in Spanish. She claimed it improved her Spanish because the conversation was banal and there was lots of swearing.

My dad likes to watch lots of movies about time travel. Crazy, especially when we all know dogs are the only ones to accomplish this feat.

"Big Brother After Dark" sounds a little, well, **naughty** frankly. Are you sure your human isn't watching "adult" tv? I hope not--that kind of thing could ruin a presidential campaign.

On a more important note, I demand to know which of you bad dogs is chewing on a book in that picture. As a member of POEM (the Professional Organization of English Majors), I object vociferously.

My mum refuses to watch the Australian version of Big Brother so she is slightly more sensible than some. But she does love watching Top Gear that Thor talked about. We should be watching animal planet all the time!

Wow, that sure is weird tv there. Mom watched last season of BB, but never saw the "after hours" stuff...

I watch "Big Brother", but I had to sit this season out because of "American Idol", "Deal or No Deal", etc. Showtime (where "BB:AD" is airing) is on digital cable in my area. We have regular cable.
