Year-End Thoughts

My final thoughts of 2006 and being a first-time TV critic, expressed in haiku form:

Television is
not necessarily an
awful medium.

It's been a pretty good TV year. Not perfect, but more good than bad. Here's hoping for a better 2007.

May you have better luck than the survivors on "Lost."

WEEKEND'S BEST BETS: Georgia fans can go through another angst-ridden Saturday when the Bulldogs square off against Virginia Tech in the Peach Bowl (ESPN, 8 p.m.)

The academically depleted Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech face the we-did-better-on-our-final exams Mountaineers of West Virginia in the Gator Bowl on Monday (CBS, 1 p.m.)

You can choose which network you want to see have the big ball drop, but I think there's a law somewhere against not watching Dick Clark on Jan. 1 (ABC, midnight).

Happy New Year's, Phillip.

Dick Clark sadly is no longer doing New year's and there SHOULD be a law against Ryan Seacrest hosting however.

I assumed this week was nothing but re-runs, but I am excited to see that several shows are back quickly such as Friday Night Lights, Ugly Betty and the NBC comedy lineup on Thursdays.

Well, I saw Dick Clark on the broadcast Sunday night. He may no longer do most of the hosting, but his presence was still there.

Yes, lots of new stuff among the returning shows this week. No rest for the weary TV critic.
