I love TV.

I love TV. In fact, when someone tells me, "Oh, I don't have a TV," I'm mildly annoyed. Because to me, telling me you don't have a TV translates to -but I spend all day and night on the internet...probably on Hulu.

It’s that time of year again: All the broadcast networks are rolling out their new prime time programming.
