THERE'S NO TV LIKE STATE-RUN TV

Norway's state-run TV channel announced it will air an hours-long program featuring eight people aiming to beat a knitting world record.

I nodded off just reading the article.

Beats golf.

Ken Burns will make an exciting documentary.

Beats about 90% of the TV on my cable box.

Is this MSNBC? Will Chris Matthews be one of the knitters? Will he apologize for all the knitters of the world? Will a stitch run up his leg? We have high expectations for The People's TV.


If there is anything in the whole wide world of sports that will beat cricket in terms of sheer zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, this is it.

The network described the knitting program as part of its effort to bring "slow but noble television" to the airwaves. NRK previously aired a 12-hour program in February that depicted a fire being built and maintained.

Finally! Real reality TV.

This probably because Ole the singing codfish had a sore throat.

I understand NRK has big holiday specials planned,
including watching snow fall, watching paint dry,
and watching ice melt (Indoors)....

"All right, John, the excitement is reaching a fever pitch right now! Here we go! Yes! Yes! It's knit one and... and...and...purl one! We have pandemonium here as the crowd erupts! Back to you, John!"

"Thanks, Dave. I'll be killing myself now."

I bet nursecindy would watch.

Just sayin'.

Anyway, who are we to criticize when our "state-run telvision channel" C-Span is televising the House trying to repeal Obamacare for the 637th time?

HBO is fighting back with a new police drama, "The Yarn".

I'd watch that over Obama.

I have friends who call that foreplay.

Knowing today's world, they're probably knitting frilly underthings.
