Obama To Appear Sunday
On TV’s Most Popular Show!!

Published at: Nov. 16, 2008, 3:26 a.m. CST

I am – Hercules!!
The 20 most-watched broadcast shows during the first full week of sweeps: 1. 60 Minutes (18.5 million viewers) 2. CSI (18.2) 3. Sunday Night Football (17.6) 4. Dancing With The Stars Monday (17.1) 5. Desperate Housewives (15.9) 6. Dancing With The Stars Wednesday (15.8) 7. Grey’s Anatomy (15.7) 8. SNL Presidential Bash (14.4) 9. Criminal Minds (14.3) 10. Vote 2008 (ABC) (13.2) 11. Two and a Half Men (12.8) 12. CSI Miami (12.7) 13. Cold Case (12.7) 14. Decision ’08 (NBC) (12.5) 15. Survivor (12.0) 16. CSI NY (11.8) 17. The Amazing Race (11.7) 18. Numb3rs (11.3) 19. NCIS (11.2) 20. Eleventh Hour (10.9) Notes: * 60% of the top 20 are CBS shows. 0% are Fox shows. * A “Saturday Night Live” special is once again NBC’s top-rated scripted show, second only to “Sunday Night Football.” This has happened with every primetime installment of SNL this fall. Not surprisingly, there’s a lot of talk about NBC giving SNL a more permanent presence in primetime. * “The Amazing Race,” which has long tottered on the verge of extinction, is now a top-20 show. “Survivor,” still in the top 15, continues to crush “Ugly Betty,” “My Name Is Earl,” “Smallville” and rival reality contender “Kitchen Nightmares,” which many saw as potential “Survivor”-killer. * “60 Minutes” could turn out to be the top-rated show this week too, as it features tonight the first exclusive post-election interview with the president-elect. 7 p.m. Sunday. CBS.

    Also, SNL in prime-time regularly is a bad idea

    by TallBoy66

    NBC loves to overexpose it's brand that's momentarily hot, remember "Heroes: Origins" that was buzzed about halfway through Season 1. And then Season 2 happened. Leave it alone NBC. I liked the SNL prime-time specials, but too much of a good thing is too much.

    Obama=Antichrist?

    by Prossor

    I was just watching a program about the antichrist on the history channel today and the program was made a few years ago but they talked very eerily about things which totally mirrors Obama. The third antichrist (after napoleon and hitler) will be someone who'll be really charming and talk about bringing peace and hope to the world, unify it but then by the 3rd year of his leadership he'll go apeshit and kill half of the world's population.

  • Nov. 16, 2008, 3:36 a.m. CST

    Prossor - you are wrong

    He won't go apeshit.... It will be coldly calculated

    the mere fact that the History Channel is talking about Nostradamus' retarded predictions as though they have any validity at all is proof that they know there are idiots out there who will actually buy into it.<p>I guess a lot of people by lottery tickets and watch Lost, too. Bill Murray was right, people are morons.

    by BadMrWonka

    the Book of Revelation says virtually NOTHING about identifying the antichrist, in fact, it doesn't even mention the WORD antichrist. that's only in other parts of the bible, and guess what? they describe ANYONE who denies Jesus as being an antichrist. <p>all of the nonsense about identifying the antichrist comes almost SOLELY from Nostradamus, and just like the rest of what Nostradamus wrote, it's utter nonsense.<p>sorry to say it, but you just got served like an appetizer, sir.

    Obama Isn't the Anti-Christ

    by Playhouse

    The Anti-Christ will most likely come out of Europe. However, there are quite a few religious folks who have reason to believe that events are shaping up now that in the next few years could cause events foretold in the Book of Revelations to occur. <p></p> <p>The belief in regard to Obama is that he will open the way for America to become ineffective in the world - especially in regard to Russia - and thereby subjugate us to any events rather than playing any significant role in them. I'm not sure I believe any of that, but I do have concern that Obama would sell this country out in the name of "unifying" the world. While unity is a nice ideal, I don't want to see us give up the farm just yet for it. Yeah, we can lead the way, but let's make sure others are willing to follow first.</p>

    Cult of Obama

    by MCPot

    In my lifetime ... I have never seen such sheep flock to a human being. It is scary. Do I believe he's the antiChrist? I don't know. Does he fit the bill? Absofrigginlutely. He rises up basically out of nowhere and uses the words "hope", "change", and "yes we can" ... and some folks seem to look at him with this bizarre glaze in their eyes. It's scary that people are so gullible. At the end of the day ... he's just another freakin POLITICIAN! Duh. You want to worship someone? Read the Bible. Nuff said.

  • Nov. 16, 2008, 5:42 a.m. CST

    Right on MCPot!

    by 1drXX

    Scary that some of you seem to put so much stock in an ancient book of nonsensical fairy tales. And it's Revelation. Not Revelations. At least have some clue of what you're talking about, instead of making it clear that you have never read the Bible outside of your church service.

    yes, words of "wisdom" on the Cult of Obama

    by BadMrWonka

    from "MCPot". give me a fucking break. either that's "emcee Pot" or "McPot", either way, forgive me if I don't readily accept your premise.<p>if all the Obama-haters have left to hang their moron hats on is that Obama is charismatic and inspires a lot of people with his personality, well, that's pretty goddamn sad. if you want to see real cultish charm, watch some video of people at Palin rallies. here's my favorite:<p> http://tinyurl.com/3wbsxr <p>some of the lines are great:<br> "I'm afraid if he wins, the blacks will take over."<br>"Wen you got a negro running for president, he ain't a first stringer."<br>"I don't like the fact that he thinks us white people are trash, because we're not." <p>MCPot, you'd fit right in there with your line: "Do I believe he's the antiChrist? I don't know. Does he fit the bill? Absofrigginlutely."<p>when you mix idiocy with the super-religious, you get some sort of chemical reaction of delusion and paranoia. but thankfully enough of America has evolved enough that what you DON'T get are 270 electoral votes...<p>you're going the way of the dodo, kids. keep spewing hate and fearing anyone that's different from you, just know that your grandkids are going to look back at you the way we look at people who opposed civil rights, or equality for women.

    Kaspian

    by 1drXX

    Fan? I have been to one of his debates, but I don't think I'd say I'm a "fan." I just can't stand it when people start talking about how great their religion is, but they don't actually know a lot about it. They've heard lots of people talk about how great they are because of their faith, but they have only read a few dozen verses over and over again. I've read the whole book. And while some parts could theoretically have been "inspired," most of it is just stories. Organized Christianity has forgotten one of the most important tenets of their religion. Only God can judge humans. To pass judgment on someone else is to make yourself a god. So why don't we just learn to live with each other instead of against each other?

    0% Fox Shows

    by GeorgieBoy

    That's because people don't tune in to Fox for fantasy shows (like 60 Minutes), they tune in for real news. Hey, let's look at the ratings for Bill O'Reilly, (or even Hannity & Colms or Greta), they get better ratings than 60 minutes.

    It there be an antichrist then let it be Gov Arnie!

    by theycallmemrglass

    I want him back on screen, man. I miss him. I enjoy every fucking one his of movies, including his world virus contaminating evil films like Batman, and T3. Cant get more evil than that. I even liked his evil comedies such as Junior and Twins. What has Obama done to prove he is antichrist? Nothing. But Arnie, man, look at his laugh, can he possibly look less devil than that!?! Have Arnie on 60 minutes or Hard Talk. Do I qualify to be a American, one of the stupid type that is, not the sensible ones (even though I'm a brit)? Please say yes, I love you guys! I love the democracy of accusing people of being antichrist without an inkling of thought of being put into a straight jacket. Ahhh, democracy. Love it.

    So Barky takes the bible literally?

    by EvilWizardGlick

    If barky is a believer and prays daily then he must believe in a literal interpretation of the bible. <p> If he believes the bible is only a map and not the territory then he has no firm moral compass to direct him. because he allows himself to interpret the word of god, meaning he feels he has the spiritual and intellectual wherewithal to infer gods plan. <p> If the second is true then why attend church? Formal services are there for those who need the bible interpreted (explained, simplified). <P> Church is not a debate society where the best laid argument wins.

    Jesus effin Keerist

    by Vern

    If the strongest argument against Obama is "he seems so nice and everybody likes him!" then maybe things aren't too bad here, eh? Do you fellas honestly not feel silly making the point that everything SEEMS to be going well, but PERHAPS we are actually in a doomsday scenario predicted by Nostradamus? And do you seriously lose sleep over this shit? I know you're trying to be fair about this, MC Pot, but I'm afraid "Do I believe he's the antiChrist? I don't know," does not cut it as a reasoned approach to this moronic superstition that could be (and in fact is) applied to every popular or unpopular leader that comes along. (In the Nostradamus movie in the 90s I think the third antichrist was CNN footage of Saddam Hussein. Guess that one didn't work out.) You call people gullible for being happy and optimistic about their new president, when you're mixing up this Nostradamus horse shit with the Bible, I think that's kind of hypocritical there. And I sure hope you weren't one of those people fingering everybody as anti-American for not agreeing with Bush several years back if now you're mad at everybody for LIKING the president.<p> And more importantly Herc is wrong, Obama gave his first exclusive post-election interview to Ebony. Which is pretty cool in my opinion.

    by Vern

    wasn't Bush extremely popular for a little bit after 9-11? Why wasn't HE the antichrist? Oh yeah, because he didn't talk about unifying the world and nobody believed him when he talked about peace. We can only fear people who seem to sincerely want peace! At first it seemed like Gandhi was the antichrist, he was real popular and talked about peace. But nothing happened and I'll be damned, wasn't Dr. King either. But this one I'm pretty sure about!

    We "fear" people who "seem" to sincerely want peace, because their proposed solutions have historically resulted in more war, more death.<p> We "fear" people who vote against legislation that would protect babies who survive abortions, because that indicates the person to be at best callow, at worst monstrous.<p> We “fear” people who talk in vague terms about a civilian security force, because it sounds too much like a Brown Shirt force.<p> We “fear” people whose supporters create videos of young people singing/marching about their greatness, because that is indistinguishable to North Korea/Dear Leader.<p> We “fear” people who refuse to do something basic like produce a copy of their birth certificate, as that is indicative that there is something sizeable to hide (what, I don’t know, but then why not just produce the damn thing instead of fighting its production in 12 different states, for God’s sake).<p. We “fear” people who are able to beat the Clinton machine, because anyone capable of defeating that evil, corrupt organization must be more evil and more corrupt (/sarcasm).<p> We “fear” people who seem to quote Marxist dogma (i.e., “change”; “righteous wind” for which “We going to have to struggle. We’re going to have to fight”).<p> We “fear” people whose main circle of friends includes those who are anti-American (Rev. Wright), terrorists (Ayers), or crooks (Rezko).<p> Fear is not the right word, but I am concerned. There is nothing in the man’s background to suggest that he is anything but a radical. I like his selection of Rahm Emanuel because it indicates that he may not throw Israel to the dogs, and will be able to not get blown over by the radicals in Congress, like happened to Clinton and Carter.

BURN HER!!!" which is pretty much the same quality of reasoning behind statements like "Obama is eloquent and charming, therefore he's the antichrist! Oh, and Hitler was charming and eloquent too... therefore he's Hitler! We must only elect incoherent bumblers in order to insure we never get the son of SATAN himself!" The right-wing/AICN crossover crowd deeply puzzles me by their very existence. Right-wing nerds? Sounds like the WORST of both worlds. How do you fire your assault rifles in your mom's basements? Plus all this Nostradumbass end of the world stuff has been going on forever. (The world will end on Tuesday! No, wait, it will end NEXT Tuesday! Etc etc...)

    There is no such thing as the Anti-Christ

    by Luscious.868

    <p>Saying Obama is the Anti-Christ is like saying Obama is Santa Clause. It's laughable because both are things that only a naive child who can not think for himself believes in. Put down your works of fiction and pickup a fucking science book you ignorant tools.</p> <p>No, not a book written by sexually repressed, closeted homosexual Evangelical priest with a 4 or 8 year "degree" from a faux college run by fellow sexually repressed, closeted homosexual Evangelicals but by a person with a real degree from a real university that has some real credibility in academia.</p> <p>The Republican party and the conservative movement has become a farce thanks to Christianist anti-intellectuals who take pride in their will-full ignorance. We're at the end of an election where during one of the early debates in the Republican primary not a single candidate who actually had a prayer of winning the nomination raised their hand when they were asked if they believed in evolution. Not a single one. What's next? Is the Republican party going to come out against the Earth being a sphere? Are they going to give a long, hard second look at gravity?</p> <p>In an election where the country was facing the biggest financial disaster since the Great Depression the Republican party choose to run on fear, uncertainty and doubt instead of putting forward serious policy solutions to address the issues at hand because they, literally, have nothing left in the tank.</p> <p>We're in a recession and in the midst of two wars and the Republicans try and run on guilt by association with Bill Ayers and an overtly racist whisper campaign that Obama is a Muslim who cavorts with terrorists. It would be laughable if it wasn't so scary that so many willfully ignorant Americans fell for it.</p> <p>The good news is that the younger voters didn't fall for it. You may be able to continue to pray on the prejudices of our parents and grandparents, but my generation is overcoming them in overwhelming numbers and the willfully ignorant Christianist chicken hawk hate mongers aren't fulling us which means that in the long run if they continue to run the Republican party they will find themselves appealing to an increasingly smaller portion of the electorate. Good riddance. </p>

    "Fear" of Obama's potential foreign policy

    by GreatOne3

    From Victor Davis Hanson at NRO's The Corner:<p>For much of the last few years, and especially the last few months of the campaign, we have heard a familiar narrative. Guantánamo was a virtual stalag, where far more innocents than terrorists were unjustly incarcerated. Given that this gulag served no useful purpose, it should be summarily shut down, and the unfairly detained suspects at last returned to their families back home. The FISA laws and Patriot Act were aimed more at bogeymen than jihadists, and what little advantage they gave us was not worth the shredding of the Constitution. <p> The ‘fly-paper’ theory of Iraq—thousands of belligerents flocked to Iraq, were killed and defeated, discredited radical Islam, and, their loss of face, coupled with a constitutional Iraq, made the region and the U.S. safer–is a puerile reductive fiction. What bellicosity we experienced with supposedly rogue terrorist-sponsoring states such as Syria and Iran was largely due to George Bush’s juvenile cowboy rhetoric—‘bring ‘em on’, ‘smoke ‘em out, ‘dead or alive’—and his refusal to defuse tensions and misunderstandings through reasoned diplomacy. <p> The promotion of democracy was a neocon pipedream, in which partly through violence, partly through cultural arrogance, we tried to clumsily project our values on deeply religious, traditional, tribal—and in the end, deeply different—societies, whose own alternate politics cannot be so crudely dismissed by our rather arbitrary standards. <p> American unpopularity in the Middle East had nothing to do with globalization, westernization, age-old envy or the newfound ability via instant communications to see how much worse life was in an autocratic Arab world than in a free West, but was largely a phenomenon of George Bush’s Iraq War and his neocon advisors’ crude tilt toward the Zionists. “The War On Terror” was largely a construct to wage perennial war, impugn the patriotism of critics, and scare the American people, through false consciousness, into voting against their real economic interests. <p> I think that is a fair enough appraisal of the opposition’s view of the Bush anti-terror philosophy. And as is true of all theories, we will soon perhaps see the extent to which it proves the more accurate in the real world of the next administration. <P>So the closing of Guantánamo, repeal of the Bush anti-terrorism legislation, rapid withdrawal from Iraq (though we are already past Obama's original target date of March 2008 for withdrawal of all combat troops), cessation of pressure to democratize and the end of hectoring against Arab authoritarianism, soothing rhetoric from a new Chief Executive, renewed diplomatic reaching out to Teheran and Damascus, more even-handed approach to the Israeli-Palestinian problem, and rejection of the notion we are in some sort of war, much less one of a “global” nature, should ensure greater American popularity, win-over our critics, defuse tensions with Iran and Syria, and ensure another seven years of safety from a major terrorist attack at home. <p> So come late January and beyond we shall see, and we all should genuinely wish the Obama administration well in their promised radical departure from the past, since the stakes are high for us all.

    About this "Obama is the Antichrist" business

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    <p>While I consider myself a democrat and a fiscal liberal, I'm a Christian and I believe that the Bible is the truth. That said, the concept of trying to guess who the antichrist is/will be, or calling Obama as the antichrist is pure poppycock.</p> <p>The Bible was meant to be the story of humanity, a catalogue of our shortcomings, our need for a savior and the fulfillment of our salvation. It's not meant to be some kind of predictor for the end times. Anyone who uses the Bible that way is an idiot and should be slapped.</p> <p>Personally, I love Obama with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. But I can understand why people are afraid of him--it's because anyone who commands the hearts and minds of that many people have incredible power at their disposal. And that much power vested in one person can very easily be abused.</p> <p>Hell, look at Oprah. She suggests a book, and a single Barnes and Noble store sells over 45,000 copies of Eckhart Tolle in one week. It's ridiculous. This unnerves me personally, because she could easily tell her flock of sheep to not have sex because it's bad for your spiritual health. And most of her followers would do it, and men the world over would be screwed.</p> <p>So I love Obama. But yes, I can understand why people are afraid of him.</p>

Hell, we would have nothing today if it weren't for that 600 year old dude who built that huge boat and saved 2 of every animal on the planet. And kept them animals fed for 150 days and kept them from eatin' each other. Yep, that story's 100% true! I hafta believe it otherwise I go to Hell.

  • Who saw that (other than Fox execs. and Gordon Ramsay)? Because if someone had wanted to make that bet, I'd of asked them to double it.<p>I find it interesting that of all the shows listed (not including the election shows), only one is in its first year. Can one assume that in order to get 10 million+ viewers a show needs time to build an audience and might require two, even three seasons to do so? Is it possible that 4 episodes is not long enough to judge the long-term potential of a new show? Or is that just crazy talk?

Which party has a better history of helping the working men and women in this country? Not even close it's the donkeys. Which party shepherded in civil rights and before that women's rights? Who believes a women is capable enough to know whats best for her body and her future? But in reality they're really are retards out there who will always vote against their own pocketbooks.

    Also the "Anti-Christ" is never mentioned in The Book of Revelation. I went to Catholic school for 8 years and had Religion class every year. I'm no expert in the Catholic/Christian Religion, but I do remember that the Anti-Christ is mentioned in The Book of John. Not in The Book of Revelation. So when people talk about Obama being the 2nd coming, and it being some sort of prophecy, and then saying that it's in The Book of Revelation(S), I fucking ignore them because they obviously never read the bible. And who the fuck really believes in Nostradamus? It's like seriously? And the whole 2012 shit is bogus. People are theorizing all of these crazy things the same way people were gripped with Y2K hysteria. On December 21st 2012, if I am lucky enough to still be on this earth breathing, I intend to continue my tradition of shopping at the mall for last minute Christmas gifts I forgot to buy.

    Lincoln and Obama

    by BackRiverCatfish

    There's been a lot of talk recently about President Lincoln and his "Team of Rivals" which he brought into his cabinet and how President Obama might replicate his example. I think this is probably a good idea but I want to point out that the decision by President Lincoln has had some interesting ramifications to today, beyond the fact President Obama wants to emulate him. If your still reading this I'll get right to the point: Abraham Lincoln gave us Sarah Palin. I'm not saying whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, thats for you the reader to decide. Here's the point: One of Lincolns biggest political rivals was William H. Seward. Lincoln named Seward Secretary of State. Seward pushed for and got the United States to purchase Alaska in 1867. The rest is history. It would be interesting to see what a Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would lead to in the year 2149.

    So if the United States didn't buy Alaska, what would the alternative been? It remained Russian and the Cold War had Soviet nuclear missiles just over the British Columbian border in Russian America? I don't think that would have been so great. <p> As it was, Seward got the land at about 2 cents an acre (of course back then 2 cents was worth a lot more) and the territoy has long since paid for itself. <p> Palin has made a big media splash but so far, hasn't had much actual effect on the nation yet, so I guess we can live with her so far provided we stay vigilant and not vote her to national office.

    How much thought did you put into that post 'Lowman'? Pessimistic people who think they are wise....nothing you can do with them. What is the crime for calling a innocent man the 'Antichrist'. If Obama is, then we will all know, and we within 8 years can say you are right. If after 8 years, the end of the world doesn't happen, will these people making these claim realize they are wrong, and learn from it? It really burn Christians that married the GOP, that Obama practises what they preach more then most Republican politicians. Yet they hint that he may be the Anti-Christ, because people like him. Reconcile Jesus's teaching with Capitalism. (To go on another complete tangent) If you truly believed in Christian teachings, then you would not covet material things and want every fed and given healthcare regardless of how much money they had. You would care for your fellow man. Love thy neighbor... It is late where I am at, sorry for the poorly structure rant. In short. I am a Christian, I am tired of my religion being tied to a political party that doesn't follow many of the teachings. They will say they are 'Pro Life' and then do what ever the hell they want.

    by TallBoy66

    Real revelations, read Nostradamus, know the end of the Myan Calendar and how it all leads to one point. It's clearly that Barack Hussien Obama is the one who's leading us all off the cliff with all his talk of hope, but it is his job to bring about the end of everything. Seriously, just think logically about it for a moment, and you know it to be true.

The footage of six or seven black SUV's, a fleet of Secret Service sedans and a flock of motorcycle cops rolling down a Washington beltway? The footage where the staggeringly stupid female studio anchor couldn't think of anything else to which she could compare the concept of a black man on a highway in an SUV and blurted out that it "reminded her of O.J."? <p>With about 47% of Americans apparently getting their political opinions from "unbiased" coverage like that, is there any doubt that Obama's victory over the Party of Pompous Anti-Intellectualism and Proud Racism should be any sweeter? <P>Please Excuse Me if I extract a modicum of pleasure from watching assholes like that claw their own eyes out....

    Lets face the facts here. This is great for far right wing

    by GQtaste

    motherfuckers! Rush, Hanity, O'Reilly and Annie C, et al. Will rally the crowd they depend on to make them millions. And I mean fucking millions of dollars who listen to every fucking word of propaganda they spout every hour their on the radio, television, pamphlets, etc. Hey, I'll be the first in line if Obama disappoints. Yes i'm a liberal but i'm not a blind one that treats politics like sports like so many do today. Which is so depressing and it was exactly what those Neanderthals wanted to happen on 9/11. And of course our leaders and a certain amount of the public feel right into their plans. I'm so sick and tired of the partisan of the right and some of it from the left as well. When you boil everything down into the simplest form most of us want to become a shining beam and a example of the rest of the world. Call me crazy but I really think after the worst eight years of politics in my 34 yrs I really am hoping the leaders can put aside the same old bullshit and actually start to get things down and achieve like we used to get shit down. i.e. when Kennedy stated that we will put a man on the moon. And sure enough we got it down. I know thats inconsequential in the grand scope of things of todays standards but you get the point. I'll be honest though I just hope the elephants won't want the donkeys to make great strides in advancing our failures that they don't gridlock opportunities so we can go forward. Oh, and bytheway, this is not someone whose writing this from either coast. I'm from OKC, OK. And it frustrates me to know that my state hasn't elected a donkey since LBJ. If memory serves correctly thats around forty fucking years. And also McCain and the face had the highest percentage of winning any other state in the union. Like I stated above poor people that support and vote every time and across the boards don't even realize that their voting against their economic situations. And that is very sad and depressing. For anybody thats on the fence there is a great book out there about the south and some of the southwest: OK, KS, Nebraska.... Titled: "Whats the matter w/ Kansas?" I'll get the link on the next go around for the interested or just maybe wanting to have a free thinking for a change.

  • Nov. 17, 2008, 1:18 a.m. CST

    Here's the link to the book: http://tinyurl.com/646s2t

    by GQtaste

    http://tinyurl.com/646s2t Whats the matter w/ Kansas? Amazon.com Review "The largely blue collar citizens of Kansas can be counted upon to be a "red" state in any election, voting solidly Republican and possessing a deep animosity toward the left. This, according to author Thomas Frank, is a pretty self-defeating phenomenon, given that the policies of the Republican Party benefit the wealthy and powerful at the great expense of the average worker. According to Frank, the conservative establishment has tricked Kansans, playing up the emotional touchstones of conservatism and perpetuating a sense of a vast liberal empire out to crush traditional values while barely ever discussing the Republicans' actual economic policies and what they mean to the working class. Thus the pro-life Kansas factory worker who listens to Rush Limbaugh will repeatedly vote for the party that is less likely to protect his safety, less likely to protect his job, and less likely to benefit him economically. To much of America, Kansas is an abstract, "where Dorothy wants to return. Where Superman grew up." But Frank, a native Kansan, separates reality from myth in What's the Matter with Kansas and tells the state's socio-political history from its early days as a hotbed of leftist activism to a state so entrenched in conservatism that the only political division remaining is between the moderate and more-extreme right wings of the same party."....

    wow the stupidity in this talkback is incredible

    by drturing

    You know, the reason some of us like Obama has nothing to do with slogans. It has to do with the fact that we feel that the last eight years have been a disaster for America's standing at home and abroad, which you now see reflected in the economy. We were opposed to the American use of torture, to secret prison camps, to fighting an unjust war, to ignoring science on climate change, to instutituing personal religious belief as legislation. We believe that healthcare should be a universal right as opposed to a for profit enterprise by unscrupulous profiteers, that oil companies who made a record 17 billion dollars in profit at Exxon alone should share the burden of their destructive energy policies. We believe that America needs to restore its standing in education. We wer dancing in the streets November 4th because as screwed as he might be, Obama won this election without ever stooping to denigrate McCain's character, that he has his heart in the right place even though he faces a difficult task. And for the last eight years we haven't had leadership, we've had a failed "CEO" at the helm of America while cities burn and sink and our economy gets wiped out in a matter of weeks.<p> And for the last fucking time, Obama isn't even black. He's half black, half white.

    by drturing

    you dumbasses, you're like Ron Paul supporters. 2012 is only the end of a created calendar cycle, there is no actual Mayan prophecy associated with the date. In fact, it's like predicting the world ends every year on December 31st, at the end of the Roman calendar cycle. Also, there's the chance that in their base 20 calendar system that we're off by a few millennia because archaeological scholars can't entirely discern if it was 2012 or some other date.

    He won an election. We will find it very hard to govern because America is now the greatest debtor nation the world has ever known. All this bunk about the apocalypse, anti-christ, etc, is a by product of people desperate to believe their own lives are interesting. They're "special" because they know "the truth" and are living in "end times". Very sexy and romantic. Sadly, our pathetic lives/times are mostly irrelevant--a fact that is very difficult for people to admit. And please don't accuse me of being an atheist. Atheists are pathetic know-nothings that insist they know something about the universe. Wisdom is admitting you know nothing (or next to nothing). So atheists: shut up, you don't know anything. And to all you end-timers, the real world is much more interesting than biblical prophecy, Nostradamus, the Da Vinci Code, 9/11 conspiracies, etc. Those things are overblown, inaccurate and, while titillating, tell us nothing. Just get over yourselves, your life/world is not that special. Try to do what you can to positively affect the world, stay grounded, and hope for the best.

What's hilarious and disturbing in equal measure is that they on the one hand believe that their interpretation of the end times is irrevocable and absolute, yet on the other hand would probably have no compunctions about trying to kill Obama if they believe he's the anti-Christ, DESPITE his role being set in stone in prophecy. <p> These very same troglodytic fucktards are the ones who think Satan doesn't know his Bible and will blithely go about trying to establish his kingdom on Earth despite knowing full well that his plan = epic fail according to fundie doctrine. <p> Sickening, absolutely sickening.

    All these sweeps ratings show is that they're sampling the same morons who can't get enough of CSI. IMHO, If there are THREE different incarnations of CSI in the list, your data is flawed.

    by jim

    Less the 5.5 million watching Vegas and not Miami, and the other million who watch the first two but not NY. The most recent CSI is in its 5th season. Love it or hate it, you can count on it. There isn't much danger of it being cancelled in the middle of the season and you can pretty much guarantee it will be back next year. That goes for most of the shows on that list. <p>I said it earlier above, I think it's worth noting that of all those shows (excluding the election ones), only one (11th Hour) is in its first season. Everything else has been on for 3 or more years. I do think that audiences shy away from new shows as networks are quick to kill any slow starters. After all, if the networks have little faith in their shows, why should the audience. I'd like to see some network's fall schedule announced with the promise that, no matter how the ratings are, every one of the new shows have full season orders and none will be cancelled before the end of their first season.
