Ohbummer wants to pre-empt American Idol next week…and 3 other networks’ shows. And the networks are not happy. JammieWearingFool is not sympathetic, claiming that The One is a monster of the networks’ creation. That’s true. But the sort of person who watches American Idol is the sort of person who elected The One, so taking the show off is just deserts for them, and has the added advantage of infuriating a large part of the President’s base
It seems to me that if the networks are upset about their schedules being messed with, they should just give Obama his own show. He could curry favor with the Hispanic demographic and call it ¡Alo, Presidente! 11 on Sunday, for 4 or 5 hours, nothing much on then anyway.
