Late Night TV?

February 18th, 2012

If you're up late whether you're a night owl or just can't sleep, you know when you turn the tv on you're "limited" to watevah is on.

Half da time it's infomercials up da wazoo ranging from miracle skin products to inversion tables to snoring mouth guards and if not that it's au' kines of wacky "reality" shows.

I'm up late watching "Alaska State Troopers" and da only thing dat goes through my mind is...... "I guess these guy's don't evah wear shorts, tank tops or slippahs". I'm surah da producers would want you thinking oddahwise but it's late night, I'm half asleep and just watching da show makes me cold.

Then comes on a commercial for "Housewives of NBA Stars".

Huh? Wassup Wit Dat!

Not only are they already married to filthy rich athletes but now with no talent of their own and thirsting desire to be publicly aired for all to see, they got their own show?

Are you a late night junkie? Do you watch some crazy "reality" shows? Have you seen any weird informercials? Bought any? No lie now.

I bettah get some sleep.... or da tv might suckah me into buying a Brazil Butt Lift dvd or subject me into watching Swamp People wit missing teeth wrestle an alligator for some grub.

    Anyone home?

    With insomnia I get to watch a lot of late night TV. At least with over a 100 channels a couple of them might have something worthwhile. Cannot stand the infomercials and those "reality" shows that are not reality at all. Some folks just should not get any air time, let alone any air. HA!

    Geez, you want a real survivor show? Put 12 people on an isolated island without power, shelter, water, food, communications . . . Come back in six months with a film crew to video the results. More than one person still alive? Continue to return every another six months with the film crew to video the results until only there is only one living person. S/He is the real survivor winner. That is reality.

    In anycase, it makes for some really good naps!

    Luckily I have netflix streaming so I can watch other stuff. Right now I'm into The Dead Zone series. It's not good for me to watch infomercials when I'm deliriously tired...everything starts to look wonderful to me. That's when I know it's time to moe moe.

    BL,

    I don't watch late night TV anymore, sleep is more important. Just wondering, do they still have those ads for talking to sexy, young girls for $3.88/minute (I think). I always found those to be interesting, why would you want to pay a girl to talk to you? You may as well go to a k-bar and pay $20 for a glass of tea to talk to a live girl. If I was going to stay up late, my choice would be watching TNT, TBS, USA, ESPN , FX or HBO.

    BL, been falling asleep in front of the tube lately. Just got a new love seat from Ashley for a couple of hundred bucks. Unreal comfortable. Brand new, too. Color bolds well with the rest of the decor. Try it when you no can sleep. The love seat will put your body to sleep, even though you're mind might still be wide awake. Huh?

    That's all I did late at night for the last 5 months...now that I'm back to work it's ESPN mostly...I finished off the following series from beginning to end with the help of streaming Netflix: Torchwood, Warehouse 13, Lie To Me, The Event, Flash Forward, Numb3rs, Bones, Burn Notice, Ice Road Truckers (in South America)....all of these I was never interested in when they were being shown on cable or regular network...and also last seasons Greys Anatomy, House, Hawaii 5-0, Smallville on DVD. I stopped watching the TV series during the week..too many commercials..its like 18 minutes out of 60 :!:

    The only thing I ever bought from an infomercial was like in the late '80s..a pair of Blu Blocker sun glasses...best pair of I've ever had. They use to sell them at Walgreens but I don't see them anymore.

    Howzit BL!
    I'm not a night owl, I'm in bed after the 10:00 news.


  7. sally:

    I haven't had TV in 6 years. Anything I want to watch is online. HULU or YouTube. Yah, U2B shows complete shows if you don't mind watching them in segments. I don't mind cuz there are NO COMMERCIALS!

    So when I'm at someone's house watching TV I get kinda impatient with the commercials... so spoiled!


  8. sally:

    I cannot stand those reality shows and I don't understand how people starve for the peeks into the lives of annoying people like the Kardashians (still don't understand what they're famous for), Housewives of Something, and PuhLeez!!! you cannot tell me than a grown woman can get devasted by being rejected by a man she met ... last week?

    C'mon, watch the real stuff like Ghost Hunters!

    BAAAHAHAHAH!

    Hey, shoot me an email if you want a pair! I won one yeeeeears ago but I'm an Oakley man myself so da Blu Blocker had no use for me. It's still in da box and everything so let me know if you want 'em.
