Sunday Night

I used to enjoy watching 60 Minutes, but over the last couple of years, I've grown to despise every painful minute of the show. I don't quite know why, other than the fact that Andy Rooney has morphed from a humorously cynical guy into an old kvetch who whines during the time given to him on air. And also, perhaps, that the formula has become so stale (after 30+ years I guess it's hard to stay fresh). I wish the TV people would ask my opinion about what should be broadcast. I'm here, I'm ready to answer their questions. In the meantime, I escape from the living room on Sundays from 7-8, either to my knitting room or to the office computer. It also doesn't help that he who selects the show usually falls asleep in front of it.
