Last week NPR did a segment on tonight's "Nova" which even sounded cool - check out the photos, the video footage will be even more amazing, if not terrifying, as we have more proof of climate change (PBS @ 8pm).Thank you Oxygen, for the priceless research that determined "early 25% of women would rather win "America's Next Top Model" than the Nobel Peace Prize, however, 75% of women said that they would be willing to shave their heads to save the life of a stranger." We already knew that thousands would risk getting stomped to death in a riot in order to even "compete" in a modeling show but I guess we needed more of these gems in order to get on with our days.

Online TV watching continues to expand and is proved by Hulu's 30+% increase in traffic this February. Old media might slowly be "getting it" - we will give them that.
