The TV Addict Rant: Whiney TV Critics

Introducing the first ever TV Addict Rant. In this installment, Daniel (theTVaddict) calls out whiney TV critics who can’t seem to stop complaining about having the best job in the world.

This being the first vodcast, feedback is welcome. Post away with the good, bad and ugly.

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • Nice, give it to em Daniel!

  • Nothing positive comes from spewing negativity. It’s one thing to make a point, it’s quite another to start calling people out. In any case, people can relate better to points like this by seeing the attitudes that you are referring to in their own local media, without having to look up one single person. Your points are actually better made when the masses can look to a bigger group to target as opposed to one person.

    My 2 cents anyways.

  • Just a quick note to Gary and everyone else who may think the video was a touch too negative.

    The ‘rant’ isn’t meant to be taken too seriously. I just thought I’d have a little fun with my first vodcast.

    In all seriousness, I’ve got the utmost respect and admiration for Tim Goodman (he’s a phenomenal TV critic with a brilliantly funny podcast) and many of the TV Critics attending the TCA press tour.

    And hopefully I’ll see them all next year when the TCA accepts my first ever application to join.

    LMAO!! You tell ’em, Daniel!!

  • jessica

    Loved it! How can you become a tv critic?

  • Fantastic job. Apparently, some people who shall remain nameless (coughgarycough) dont’ understand the concept of tongue-in-cheek.

  • Tim Wilkins aka College Virgin

    Love it. Doing something from your heart, as you do, I can relate to. I don’t understand why someone would look a gift horse in the mouth. =)

  • Love what you do. Keep it going, buddy, you’re doing great job. 😉
    Hope you get this application next year !
    (And yeah, they do have the coolest job in the world… fraktards !)

  • John

    Were you consciously doing an Ausiello impression or was it unintentional?

  • Brynhildur

    uuuu fun fun!

    It’s so wierd seeing you talking after just listening to you on the podcast

    and I hope Ari will maybe make a guest apperance on the next vocast


    Oh wait, that’s just Daniel.

    Carry on. 🙂

    I do have to wonder why these television critics bitch so much about going to upfronts. Some of us would KILL to go to them. 🙂

    first comes a webcast then ctv comes a calling…..ah the winds of change. just please don’t get too popular before san diego….i don’t want to get swarmed by fans like last year.

  • Seriously, this is so not a horrible rant where you rip someone apart. It could be about 1000% times worse (I hope you have it in you Daniel) and if you need pointers or names, I’ve got a list.

  • Jennifer

    YAY tvaddict! way to stick it to the people who don’t have real jobs and don’t sit in an office all day………however, if the tvaddict does end up making into the upper echelons of fame and fortune, i would humbly ask for a job :.)

  • gabby


    I wish I could be so lucky to have the best job on the planet.

    Well said ‘Gary Whittaker’…

    This site is more about the ‘TV Addict’ getting the best job on the planet than informing
    about television.

  • How great would it be to have watched so much TV, written endlessly about it, and then to have attended so many TV press events and upfront presentations, as to become so jaded that you whine about having to endure yet another one? Somebody, sign me up! Well, maybe not the jaded part, but the rest sounds pretty good.
