From Rick Kissell of Variety:

Nielsen has taken its ratings game to college campuses for the first time, and the early results are good news for young-skewing programs.

It's not surprising that primetime shows with young auds like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Gilmore Girls" have seen their ratings spike up, but a few daytime soap operas have also been big beneficiaries. ...

It is Valentine's Day today and I live in an all-female household (wife, daughter, exchange student), other than myself. None of them are "Lost" or "Amer. Idol" (thank all deities, if any exist) fans, so TV watching is not on the agenda, but my cooking and cleanup is. Enjoy "Friday Night Lights" everyone.

I could just run a cable into the kitchen. It's not that far.

My apartment isn't very big.

I live in comfortable squalor.

If you live in Los Angeles, one of the benefits of no more Geraldo is that the Simpsons are now on at 11:00 so you could watch Seinfeld from 10:00-11:00 and then Homer until 11:30.

It does conflict with The Daily Show but feeds right into Charlie Rose.

6 How about where I live has no Simpsons late night, NO PBS!!! and PBSU is gone from DirecTV.

I've been Charlie Roseless for a year. Sigh.

2 It sounds better than "au pair girl" and I'm sticking with it! And for full effect, I should have added the (true) adjective "Scandanavian", but I get no credit for that now.

And now it is time to sautée.

Charlie Rose?

Charlie Rose?

I would think not having access to Charlie Rose is a good thing.
