Boob-tubes.

One thing:

1. You know that US viewers are entirely fixated on their entertainment when CBS fires an "overly-aggressive" producer for breaking into popular drama CSI: NY to air a special report on Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The viewers never got to watch the ending and CBS got a barrage of complaints because of it. CBS promised to repeat the episode the next day.

And here I was thinking that this country is the only one turning vidiots*. I recall a particular Starstruck wannabe during the eliminations round as he was asked, "Do you think movie stars should earn millions of pesos, while their assistants earn only a portion (or something to that effect)?"

Smirking Wannabe: "Well yeah, because movie stars work hard, promoting their shows and movies and everything, and the assistants can't earn that much, kasi assistants lang naman sila eh (or something to that effect)."

Smirking Wannabe bastard got in the Final 14. Whoop-de-doo. And as I last checked, Smirking Wannabe bastard is still there.


*I love CSI. It's my favorite show. But there is a limit to entertainment!
