Let me explain this for those of you who don't know. Last night was the big Thursday lineup. I set a tape for Survivor at 8, The Apprentice at 9, and Project Greenlight at 10. It was going to be a big reality night. But President Bush gave a one-hour press conference at 8, pushing Survivor to 9. Why is this a problem? Because neither tvguide.com nor last week's Survivor preview managed to warn me about this. Evidently, Bush likes to do this every year. Does he expect us to know? Why don't they advertise this? I fast forwarded through the Bush thing, and I have no idea what it was about, but it looked like he was having a terrific fucking time.
So, to answer the question, why did America have to miss Survivor? Because Bush has TiVo, and he's an inconsiderate prick.
