Dear Television God,

Although I have the utmost respect for your divine holiness and even worked under your supervision and in your “realm” for many years, I have a bone to pick with you:


There are very few QUALITY shows on television and when there are, I’m pretty sure the good people of the TV Watching World would like to have them SPREAD evenly throughout their week. I cannot speak for everyone down here, but I think I speak for many when I ask: WHY, OH, WHY, DO YOU TORTURE YOUR PEOPLE BY PUTTING ALL THE BEST SHOWS ON IN ONE NIGHT??! We already have fantastic shows such as “The Office,” “30 Rock,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Ugly Betty” (yes, some of us do love this show) on Thursdays. “Lost” is sensational and it deserves it’s own night. And frankly, we were happy to have it on Wednesdays.

During biblical times, when you created the ever so brilliant “Must See TV,” and shows such as “The Cosby Show,” “Family Ties,” “Friends” and “Seinfeld” aired on Thursday nights, the people PRAISED YOU. It was a brilliant programming move and television history was made. However, that wasn’t the ONLY night of good television. It was just a BIG night of television. But now, other than Thursdays, we kinda got nothin’.

You answered our prayers (well, some of us, that is) when you aired “Dancing with the Stars” on Monday and the results on Tuesday; giving us two nights of pure spray tan and glitter magic. And sure, there are other great shows like “The Tudors,” for instance, or “Top Chef,” on other nights of the week. But they’re on cable, and we don’t know what nights they air first run. Thus, they are recorded and watched when Mommy gets a break and Daddy finally relinquishes control of the remote control after watching brainless shows like “Cops” because if he doesn’t, Mommy is going into the other room and ignoring Daddy for the rest of the night. But I digress…

In conclusion, I am urging you to move “Lost” back to Wednesdays. Watching Ben, McDreamy AND Michael Scott all on one night, in one sitting just feels confusing… and well, creepy. Please spread out the goodness… Help fill the voids.

Oh, and one more thing, would you cordinate with your buddy SPORTS GOD and make sure the Dodgers or Lakers don’t play on Thursdays from now on? That would create just all kinds of chaos.

Sincerely yours,

    Well, that's why I want to make out with my DVR. It records it ALL for me and I watch whenever I like! SO SWEET.

    I'm super pumped for Lost tonight.
