What's on Tonight? - Barack TV and More


Remember when we announced that presidential candidate Barack Obama purchased a primetime TV block?


That night has come. Obama's presidential advertisement will be airing at 8PM tonight on NBC (no Knight Rider), CBS (no Gary Unmarried), FOX (Baseball airing after; still no new Bones) and Univision.


The ad will not be airing on ABC, so an episode of Pushing Daisies will air in its normal timeslot.


The CW is also unaffected by the ad - America's Next Top Model and Stylista will both air in their normal timeslots.


And...if after Barack's 8PM ad you still haven't seen enough of him, he'll also be stopping by The Daily Show later this evening.


There has also been some confusion about Lipstick Jungle due to recent scheduling changes so we wanted to remind you that there will be 2 episodes this week - both tonight and in it's new Friday timeslot.

Ok eejits, no matter how FABULOUS your tv show is, the campaining of the potential PRESIDENT of the United States (the man who will run the country for the next four to eight years) is slightly more important. He bought prime time because that is when people watch. (Your question was rhetorical, but I chose to answer it anyway, Znuc). Also, he is quite significant Bashinki, for, as I have previously stated, he shall be RUNNING THE COUNTRY for the next four to eight years. He will be either raising or lowering taxes, repairing or skrewing over the economy, and setting the standard for any future black president we may potentially have. If he succeeds in bringing the change he has promised, people shall look to black canidates in the future and say, "well, Obama followed through when all the white guys never did..." if he fails however, people will forever disregard future black canidates until someone else can bring change. His running was a HUGE step for America, and his winning was an even bigger one. (Though I can't help but wonder if he won because he was black and people wanted to make sure they did not apear biased by not voting for him, or if he won because people really, genuinly liked him better than McCain and Palin.) So, my dears, I'm sorry that you were inconvinienced for one night so that Obama could try to rally more votes. I am also sorry that you are so brainwashed by television and the many varying negative influences of the 21 century society that you care more for your silly television show that will not affect your actually day to day life in the slightest way, than you care for the politics and promises of the first black presidential candidate in over 200 years.
