The fall TV season is just starting up and no doubt many of you out there are excited from one of your favorite programs to begin a new season. This time of year always creates a difficult dilemma for baseball fans who must decide whether or not to watch the return of their favorite new show or the favorite baseball team make a playoff push. Well, Monkey With A Halo is here to help you make that decision a little easier for all you Angels fans:
- Seriously, Dancing with the Stars? I know everyone like a good competition but how about one that isn't totally meaningless and contrived, oh, and doesn't involve washed up celebrities prancing around in yellow spandex with ruffles. I'll take a pennant race any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
- Who is going to live and who is going to die on Grey's Anatomy?!?!? I say, who cares? The Angels' playoff life is on the line right now. I guess I'll just have to deprive myself of young, attractive doctors having sex all over a hospital in the midst of medical emergencies for a few weeks to see if the Angels survive the final weeks of the season.
- The hottest new show of the season is supposed to be Flash Forward, where the whole world blacks out at the same time and has a brief vision of the future several months from now. Unless they are going to tell us who wins the World Series this year, I am not interested.
- My wife is excited for the return of The Hills. I am excited that baseball will still be in season so I can watch that in the other room because the alternative would be having to gouge out my own eyes so that I don't even accidentally see a single second of the most mind-numbingly stupid show to ever be on television.
- Why anybody would be excited for the return of Two and a Half Men is beyond me. Why not watch the Angels on TV? That way you get to see some exciting baseball action and you can still get your fill of poorly written, horribly acted comedy during the numerous Howard's Superstore commercials.
- The Biggest Loser is one of the few feel good reality shows on all of television. The only thing that makes me feel even better is watching even big losers, the Texas Rangers, fall to the Angels. If you really want some weight loss intrigue though, stay tuned in October when the Angels head to Boston and try and lose 400 pounds worth of monkey on their back.
I think it is pretty obvious that and self-respecting Angel fan needs to just suck it up and program their DVR to record all the new shows. There will be plenty of time to burn through your Tivo backlog in November after the Angels win the World Series.
