American FlagToday is voting day. The day we get to put democracy in action. It is also the day when the bottom of the screen turns into election results while you are watching your favorite shows. What will be funny is there will be something I TiVo tonight that I won’t get to for a while and when I do I will have to watch them with the election results scrolling across the bottom of the screen. Do you like when your local stations do this? Would you rather just wait until the local news comes on and see who won then? At least we won’t have to watch anymore-political ads for a while. I really am tired of them. I the TVaholic and I approved this post.

Prime Picks

Friday Night Lights (NBC): New. After a two-minute election update catch the latest episode of the show where they are dealing with the possibility of last week’s win being taken away because Voodoo may not have been eligible.
