Extremely disappointed!

Whining rant warning...

Television - why do I bother?

I love the show Elementary. I never get to watch it on regular tv because I'm usually working.

I have been excited all week because I was asked to work later today and I was excited to watch Elementary with everyone else instead of later on amazon instant videos (which I am very grateful for, btw).

So what happens? A storm.

The thing is - the storm is more than a hundred miles from me and not headed this way. And yet, the local abc, cbs, nbc stations all pre-empted everything for hours.

Including Elementary.

Remember the days long ago when the damn news knew it's place and would just run warnings at the top of the screen.

Now they have to take over whole shows so they can repeat the same information over and over and over again, ad nauseam.

Again - why do I bother? Between the tyrannical 'news' industry and the inane reality shows it's just not worth it. And definitely not worth the price of cable.

What's your take?
