Fuzzy Wuzzy

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:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

But that piece isn’t as low-down as the one that follows from LA.  And by “low,” we mean physiologically as well as journalistically.  “It’s for that area down there.”  Cast thine eyes downward and behold:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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.

    As to A: Yawn.

    As to B: I am not sure if I was ready to watch that this early this morning. And I’m not sure that hearing the moan/groan/whatever it was that the woman was making when getting waxed was exactly fit for family audiences. Wait, it was LA. Never mind.

    And C: What, none of these “OMG they’s strange men cruising public restrooms”/moral panic features?

    If the “girl kissing” story cut out the first 2:05 of the piece, it would have come across as a little more newsworthy. ugh.
