Scroll down to "Let's play Oddball" and click on Dec.-Feb. The rest of the segments after it will play automatically. I don't have cable at all, but with broadband, I can see Countdown after it's been broadcast.

Do you have a weblink for Oberman's "new of the Weird for 2007"?

While I love comedies, I just abhor laugh tracks! Consequently, I do not watch comedies on TV. My feeling is, if things are truly funny I won't have to be prompted to laugh. BTW, did any of you all catch Keith Oberman's "News of the Weird for 2007?" I was laughing so hard I nearly fell out of the chair -- all without the hated laugh track. :o)

It's ok. I think I've seen 2 or 3 of them. I guess I could check in every 1/2 hr to see if they are showing one I haven't seen. I think the problem is that the network has pushed the sitcom so hard with constant commercials showing bits and pieces of each upcoming show that by the time it actually airs, I feel I've already seen it. So what's the point? Also, I get the impression that Applegate has been groomed to follow in the steps of Jenna Elfman, and so far I don't think she measures up.

Kitty, you don't like Samantha Who? I love that show! You don't think it's hilarious? I think that's some of Christina Applegate's best work -- that
and the movie, "The Sweetest Thing".

I definitely hear you with regard to your sports woes -- my husband is a huge baseball fan and general fan of sports in general. I've learned to
deal with it and entertain myself (usually on the computer).

I hate sports. hate hate hate!!!!!!!!!

Last Sunday I checked the paper's guide and saw that 'Good Night & Good Luck' would be airing Sat night-tonight. Wow, I would really look forward to seeing that one. On Monday I read about some sports people complaining that a football game was not going to be aired on ESPN or anywhere else without having to pay extra. So guess what the solution was? They are airing it on BOTH, both mind you!, CBS and NBC. What could possibly be a
good reason for that?????
So now I can watch 4 consecutive episodes of Samantha Who or ET, some old
PBS shows, or Cheaters.
I guess I'll work on my MG nursery book instead.
