  1. Adding another deck chair to the Titanic. Caught Matthew “Beaver Cleaver’ Smith anchoring and it is painful, and that followed a newly added reporter saying “I can’t swim,” as a ‘fun fact’ while reporting on the Tsunami advisory.

  2. Why does a one hour show need multiple meteorologists? Why does a TV show require a meteorologist at all? I realize the importance of a leggy, attractive woman in a form-fitting dress and a nice smile as she gives us reassuring weather data from Tumwater, Forks or Mukilteo. My personal demographic, though, would be just as happy if she were telling elephant jokes.

    1. Sitcom: Person A leaves the room. Person B follows. Person A slams door. Person B runs into door. Laugh track. Person B yells. Laugh track (louder this time, to help audience understand the “humor”).
