It’s time to give thanks for the November sweeps. In this case, our blessing is for those “special” reports the Atlanta TV stations opted not to do.
It’s like this. While
- WSB and WAGA dueled over Gena Evans’ e-mails and boyfriends;
- WSB one-upped WGCL on the wasteful business of garbage collection;
- WGCL half-heartedly tried to prove the existence of God, and
- WXIA employed FM disk jockeys as election analysts;
… a TV station in Connecticut ground out this bit of silly crapulence:

The story was kinda weird yet predictable. We like the clips from whatever TV show that is. Our biggest gripe is the bed of music in the background. “Pretty Woman” is generic. “Fuzzy Wuzzy” is specific, and one of the best jams by Luna.
We conclude with our word of thanks: Hurray for the Atlanta TV stations. They notoriously copy sweeps pieces from other markets. They apparently declined to snip off these two. Good for them. Happy Thanksgiving.
