This means entertainment shows versas real information shows. An entertainment show with one or two people costs a lot less than Tony's shows. Don't worry, Food Court is next or maybe there already is one. I don't watch the Food Network anymore. -Dick
Good point! Then again, I turn the TV on for entertainment rather than information. For me, the boob tube is mindless relaxation and I enjoy having it on for background noise -- glancing at it occassionally while I'm doing something else or letting my mind go numb with shows like Unwrapped. Rachel Ray and Alton Brown are somewhere in the middle. I can glean a few helpful tips from their shows, but for the most part, it's just relaxing watching someone else do all the cooking in an immaculate kitchen. Brainrest.
I have plenty of books to turn to for information, and have never been one to turn on the TV to learn
. I guess when my eyes go bad or I don't have access to a plethora of books, I'll rely on TV rather than newspapers, internet, or books. For now, I'm pretty happy with the sometimes mindless but usually entertaining shows offered by FTV.
