So the Emmys wasted a good part of your television viewing on Sunday. Thank goodness for Sunday night football. Have you ever noticed how much Hollywood loves itself? There are the Primetime Emmy Awards, the Daytime Emmy Awards, the Academy Awards, MTV Awards, Grammy Awards, etc, etc. The list goes on forever. Of course, they have the red carpet show, the pre-awards show, the backstage show, and post-show party coverage. Does anybody really care? Why do they televise every awards show imaginable? Does it even matter? If you like to watch “World’s Wildest Police Videos,” for example, are you going to suddenly switch to “Desperate Housewives” because it won an Emmy? Or if you’re a fan of “House,” are you going to stop watching it because it didn’t win an award? The whole thing is utterly silly. All they want is to have their pictures taken with a two-bit trophy. And then they’ll complain about the paparazzi following them. Give me a break. Send a message to Hollywood — and the networks. Turn off the award shows, and enjoy the company of your family. That’s a real award.

Emmy update: The Sept. 21 Emmy Awards had one of its smallest audiences ever. Hollywood is grasping for answers. They're blaming everything from competiton on other networks, to the weather. If they wanted the truth, all they would have to do is ask viewers. Nielsen ratings seem to confirm that average every-day folks are simply tired of watching over-paid pompous actors telling everyone how great they are. The fact is, most television is simply dreadful, and to watch people getting awards for it is a joke.
