TV Junkie: Monday

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

AdWeek reports that the most recent comCast data shows that while the flow of people who go online to watch video has slowed down somewhat, the amount of video they watch online has exploded (like a Jerry Bruckheimer film).

And it's no wonder, look at the garbage below to see what these people are fleeing. This is another one of those "there's nothing on TV tonight" nights. Late night is nothing but reruns except for CBS and their guests aren't worth mentioning, although I imagine that David Letterman will say a few choice words about the late George Carlin.

Speaking of George Carlin, please note that HBO will be presenting hours of George Carlin both Wednesday and Thursday nights this week. More to come.
