Yet more cannon fodder in my quest to figure out just what the hell TV is all about- it's 2:30 AM here, in Nashville, right now. I have tuned in to the Disney Channel, on a lark. At this hour the programming is clearly and blatantly geared for a younger audience. I ask you: what right-thinking adult would allow their child to be awake at 2:30 AM? What kind of message is Disney trying to get across? "We want your children to be tired, cranky, unprepared for school tomorrow, upset and generally annoying. Wake them up. Tune in. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is on." Hmmm... there's something to that, now that I think about it.
I tell you, if I was a parent, I'd feel pretty miffed, partially confused and fairly annoyed. Not that there isn't enough to be annoyed at Disney about already, but this just kinda adds to the ever-growing pile.
Next up: The Sci-Fi Channel. Neither science, and barely recognized as fiction. Should it have been named "The Spec-Fi Channel" instead? Tune in later for more details.
