I Don't Miss TV... Much

I've totally stopped watching TV. And you know what the interesting thing is? I don't miss it.

And I know how it happened too. I don't have cable. I just free TV. When the World Trade Center was destroyed, most of the transmitters for local stations were destroyed as well. Most of the stations moved their transmitters to the Empire State Building. But Fox and NBC didn't, and the reception for both stations is lousy in Brooklyn -- it's like moving fuzz.

I actually wasn't a big TV watcher before, but the few shows I did watch were on Fox or NBC. It's weird that I haven't seen an episode of The Simpsons in a year-and-a-half. Okay, I do miss watching The Simpsons and Malcolm in the Middle. And That '70s Show. And The West Wing. And Friends. And I really would have liked to have seen what the deal was with Niles on Frasier.

But other than that, I really don't miss TV at all.
