Is anyone else still scratching their head over NBC’s decision to offer up a FREE iTunes download of 30 ROCK’s season premiere a week early when you purchase the October 27th issue of TV Guide Magazine? I mean don’t get me wrong, this TV Addict is all for free iTunes downloads, after-all, who doesn’t love free stuff [see today's previous post.] I’m just not so sure that TV Guide was the right strategic partner considering that the once mighty guide now finds itself in such dire financial straits that it was recently sold for $1 [no really, one dollar!] That and, I’d hazard to guess that the people who still use TV Guide as a “Guide to What’s On” include some of the few remaining folks who are old enough to remember when 30 Rockefeller Center was built. Not exactly NBC’s desired demographic. Paging Entertainment Weekly… anyone?
With the one caveat being Michael wanting a “Golden Shower” of his very own, was I the only TV Addict who found last night’s episode of THE OFFICE quite possibly the least funny of the entire series?
Now that 90210 has dropped Jessica Walter as a series regular and with her, the impetus for the Mills family move to West Beverly — this TV Addict can’t help but wonder how long until showrunners Gabe Sachs, Jeff Judah and newcomer Rebecca Kirshner decide to take the next logical step, send the rest of the Mills family back to Kansas and refocus the show on the only family anybody cares about — The Taylors [Jackie, Kelly and Silver].
Are you watching CRUSOE tonight? Because this TV Addict finds himself somewhat intrigued. Mind you, not intrigued enough to stay home, or even bother to watch the screener that has been collecting dust on my coffee table for two weeks. But all the same, I’ve always had a thing for the book growing up and will definitely be checking the series out come tomorrow morning thanks to the magic that is my PVR.
