We have to tackle community TV sitcoms
Can somebody inform me who’s watching ABC’s Wednesday evening TV lineup? There we had been within the man cave final evening and in some way the TV ended up on ABC. I zoned out for half-hour and woke as much as my spouse zoned out (not sleeping) and The Surprise Years (the brand new model) on the TV. I sat there for 5 minutes in a daze as this present rambled on. Finally, it ended after which The Conners got here on.
, the present Roseanne was kicked off of. It’s presupposed to be a comedy.
We sat there and gave it roughly 5 minutes and that was lots.
Guys, what occurred to the sitcom? The Conners is an entire embarrassment of a sitcom. It’s ineffective. John Goodman doesn’t need to exit like this. And it’s not simply a problem at ABC. My spouse and I attempted to present American Auto on NBC an opportunity again in January, I consider. We had been one-and-done with that rubbish as properly. We’re presupposed to snicker! Which govt gave this one the inexperienced gentle? That govt wouldn’t know comedy if it was injected into his/her veins.
Are community sitcoms formally lifeless? Possibly the true query is: Are all of the comedy TV writers lifeless?
I perceive I simply threw a bunch of questions at you guys. Assist me right here.

On American debt
• Chris B. learn my publish about new automotive auto debt being carried by Individuals and has some perspective on this topic:
Hello, Joe — sustain the good work!
A observe on that $155,622 common family debt: that features mortgages and a giant chunk of that’s pupil mortgage debt for all the previous 18-year-olds who had been bought a invoice of products by Huge Schooling. So it’s dangerous, however not as dangerous if you happen to exclude mortgages. And if you happen to add the online worth of the homes and automobiles for which that debt is being paid, common internet value might be rather less miserable. (None of which has something to do with the ravaging results of Bidenflation.)
If you happen to haven’t refinanced the whole lot, do it as we speak. Homes, automobiles, bank cards, all of it. I’m previous, and I’ve by no means seen rates of interest this low — and we by no means will once more.
Sure, we’ve refinanced the home and that saved us a number of years of funds. No automotive funds. No bank card debt. No pupil mortgage debt. Give me a patio surrounded by my birds, vegetation, the squirrels that run alongside the highest of the fence, Yacht Rock, 80 levels, Busch Lights, a blowout golf journey with the boys right here and there, and I’m all set.
• Talking of inflation, in July 2021, I made campground reservations in northern Michigan to hire an RV. I want to change the reservation, so this week I went to the web site to see what the costs can be for the modification.
In July 2021, I reserved the RV for $75 an evening. Now, the charges are $140!
• Fairly positive I’ve discovered the basement I’d have with one other 2500 sq. ft. of area. Now, I do know lots of you hate golf. This clearly isn’t your dream basement and it’s not essential to ship me an e mail saying so: [email protected]
Don’t neglect, that display can even present soccer video games. You’ll be able to throw out these large bean luggage that the touring salesmen push at Costco and there’s enjoyable available by your complete household.
• That is humorous. Embarrassing? Let’s admit it, Marsh would kill to have a job like this.
On Reid’s pool dilemma and the Vegas rebound
• Sean C. in Granger, IN writes:
I’m preparing for mowing season. I’ve my rider scheduled for upkeep and I’ll be able to go. We bought teased slightly bit right here within the midwest the final couple of weeks. The climate this subsequent week is gonna suck, however hopefully, by April 1st, we’ll be able to go!
Reid’s dilemma is a troublesome one. I believe your options are strong. Don’t put the repairs in another person’s arms. Simply get compensation for the time/bills to get it again into form. I just like the $1k stipend for “ache and struggling” off the highest, however for somebody who’s placing in in all probability $60-$70k for a pool, that $1k isn’t a lot. I’ve had loads of associates and neighbors with swimming pools who at all times supply the “come over anytime” factor.
The pool proprietor is aware of that Reid received’t benefit from that too typically, until they turn into finest associates. I’d at all times really feel awkward simply “popping over” to make use of the pool with out an official, particular invite. If correctly compensated, I believe Reid is being an amazing neighbor if he permits the pool individuals to tear up his yard. The nice factor is that the garden will come again ultimately. It seems FANTASTIC, so I perceive his plight. Good neighbors aren’t in all places, and if he does permit this, hopefully this gesture isn’t forgotten.
Vegas. I could have talked about this again within the fall, however I had a commerce present in Vegas in September. The casinos had been a shit present. Masks police had been in all places. Partitions on the craps tables. Masks on always until “actively consuming or consuming”. The one locations the place the principles had been slightly bit extra relaxed had been the impartial eating places that weren’t in casinos.
Spending time on Fremont Road was the longest stretch of time I didn’t have to fret a couple of masks. I used to be additionally there in October of 2020. Stayed out at Crimson Rock. It wasn’t as dangerous, nevertheless it wasn’t enjoyable. I often go for enjoyable a couple of times a 12 months. I vowed not to return till they returned to the maskless society all of us realized to like. On April thirtieth I head again out for an additional commerce present. I’m actually wanting ahead to getting again to the final craziness and debauchery that Vegas brings. I’ll ship an replace after my journey.
One final thing, Mike and Cindy’s updates from their Mexican winter impressed me. I simply bought again from my annual spring coaching journey in Lakeland. Sadly as a consequence of some scheduling conflicts with a number of the different guys within the group, we needed to keep on with our initially scheduled journey of March 7-14th. Because of Rob Manfred, we truly noticed no skilled baseball. We did see some Div 2 and NAIA video games although. However I believed it might be enjoyable to doc a type of journeys and publish like Mike and Cindy do. I didn’t take into consideration this plan till about midway via my journey.
However with out video games, it may need missed one thing. This 12 months’s weblog would have merely been about golf and Hooters. I believe your readers deserve extra. So subsequent 12 months, look out for Sean C’s Spring Coaching Report!
Fully agree on the $1k supply to Reid being peanuts for his ache and affected by sacrificing his turf. I believe he would wish to have his lawyer write up a hefty labor value which would come with additional ache and struggling compensation.
And don’t really feel dangerous for not documenting your Florida journey. Not many are devoted to the replace recreation like Mike T. and Cindy T. Bear in mind these updates from their fall journey throughout the U.S. and manner up into the northeast? Don’t even take into consideration competing with Mike T. journey stories. You’re going to lose.

One assume Reid S. didn’t point out is how the neighbor’s spouse seems in a swimsuit. Would possibly throw that in as a tie breaker if he’s firmly on the fence.
And with that, we have to get rolling. I’m operating late.
Have an amazing day throughout this nice nation. Go make that cash, crush these golf balls, dominate retirement.
