I saw Lauren Hutton on the Today Show this morning. She's holding up incredibly well. She did a brief interview with Al Roker and it was mentioned she would be among the cast for Nip/Tuck this season. She admitted that prior to being offered the part, she had no knowledge of the show because she hasn't owned a TV since 1972 (might have been '62--I'm not sure.)
I identified with her reasons for not having a set. She said if the TV was on, it just sucked her in and she got nothing done.
I've probably seen more than my share of the Weather Channel. It's background noise, more than anything. JB watches the first part of Today Show for the local weather segment--then the TV switches to XM Cafe at 10 a.m. via autotune.
We all know there's not diddley squat on TV anymore. So why do we get "sucked in?"
The only things I make a point of watching is Weeds and The Riches. Weeds runs August till November on Showtime, and The Riches runs March till May, I think, on FX.
Both shows have such totally wacked out storylines, I have to watch them just to see what happens next.
