YOU Be the Network Exec – One Hour a Day TV
March 16, 2009 by Kath Skerry
This post has the makings of a horror story. Please don’t be frightened…it’s not real.
The year in 2010. In light of the economic crisis, the networks have opted to run ongoing news coverage 23/7. This leaves only one hour a day, seven days a week for non-news viewing. Given your love for all things TV, YOU have been chosen to dictate the one hour of programming that will be viewed by the masses each day. You are not constrained by budget and you don’t have to be worried about ratings. Your only allegiance is to the viewing public. Their TV entertainment is limited and it’s up to you to make them happy.
If you alone programmed the TV schedule, one hour out of each day, what would the TV schedule look like?
It’s tough, but here’s my schedule…
Monday: Mad Men – Consider it the weekly history lesson. Let’s watch together and learn from our mistakes while also getting some savvy fashion advice.
Tuesday: Chuck – This one show alone covers the action, drama, comedy & romance genres. It’s four shows for the price of one.
Wednesday: Lost – What? There would be anarchy if we didn’t air the ending to LOST.
Thursday:The Office/How I Met Your Mother – Jim Halpert & Barney Stinson. Need I say more.
Friday: Friday Night Lights – The only way I could ensure that FNL was getting the eyeballs it needed to stay on the air. Could I make my favorite drama yours?
Saturday: So You Think You Can Dance – Don’t we need a little art in our lives? It’s the best of the best of reality shows.
Sunday: The Big Bang Theory/The Daily Show – I like my men smart and funny. Plus, with 23/7 news shows we’re going to need Jon Stewart more than ever to help us sort through the BS.
Leave your TV schedule below.
