Is it just me or does FOX only seem to have two movies to show as counter-programming on any Sunday evening featuring an awards show or major sporting event on another network? The thing is, every time I turn around, it seems like FOX is showing Independence Day
or True Lies
. You'd think maybe, just maybe they might have another movie or two over there that they could show occasionally.
Of course, the thing last night was that being a straight male, I had no interest in watching the Oscars.
Well, that and I've not seen any of the movies up for any of the awards this year. (File under: I need to get out more often).
Something else that struck me--does FOX show the ending to the movies in their on-air promos for them like they do with their shows? Seems that once again, the FOX promo department has given away crucial developments from end of tonight's 24 in their promos
. (Don't worry, the link does not tell what it gives away but is, instead, Robert Bianco warning us about it!) Which is one reason I've stopped watching the previews at episode's end each week and was kind of glad there was no Simpsons
or Arrested Development
on last night where I might see a preview and ruin part of the fun of tuning in tonight.
