Jennifer Hudson is pregnant....again...4 months after giving birth.

I guess you really can't take the ghetto out of the girl.

She is black, did you really expect anything else?

Britney Spear's Speculum: I guess you really can't take the ghetto out of the girl.

That's a pretty shiatty, and maybe racist, thing to say.
She may be trying to build her family in a short window rather than waiting until she's 40 and people are tired of her (whether they are now or not, I dunno).

I am SHOCKED, by this news. Not so much shocked that she's knocked up, more that there's a dude out there that would hit that...and then go back for seconds right after she's spit out her first crotch fruit. SHOCKED!

I've never heard of this "American Idol" and I don't own a TV. I also buy all my news from fair trade news outlets in third world countries using money I made selling electricity back to the power company. Rather than sit on the couch for entertainment, I volunteer feeding starving orphans.

I'll assume you're not black and therefore your family is free to reproduce without hillbillies judging you.

Yeah, same here. My sister an I were born in the same year. I don't think we qualify as ghetto.

That really sucks to hear, I love American Idol, as much as people like to dog on it, I think it's a really good show to watch with your children. It teaches them how to lose gracefully, and the talent on the show is always top-notch.

I'm so smug, I've never watched broadcast TV.

Taking Bright House's side on this one. Just cause I'm tired of Fox strongarming the world into submission. If one megacorp has to win,

Let me get this straight: Fox wants money from cable operators for carrying broadcast channels? That's pretty douchey, even by Murdoch standards.

mreuther: As long as Hulu is around, I'm not sure it matters.

Bu, Hulu doesn't show the foosball.

Anyway, I have DirecTV, so I am not affected by this problem. But it's funny, because all the commercials Fox is airing "warning" us about it make it sound as if Time Warner is just being dicks and dropping the channel because they want to be dicks. No mention of Fox wanting more money.

Fox Broadcasting not being straight about something? Imagine that...

There are only a few shows worth watching these days:

- Family Guy
- American Dad
- "Classic" Simpsons
- King of the Hill
- Venture Brothers
- ATHF
- Robot Chicken
- Metalocalypse (Maybe) [Only watch for Dr. Rockso]
- Shippuuden
- Bleach

They're not talented. They're famewhores. If they were talented and devoted to what they were doing then they would look upon such a mindless and senseless "shortcut" that strips them of artistic integrity and ownership of their "art" as a step backwards from their goal rather than forwards to it.

Again, it's not about talent. It's about famewhores. Try not to confuse the two.

What really sucks is this is only the beginning. cable companies buying up networks, soon those networks will only be carried on certain carriers, etc. Comcast customer? great! you can watch Versus. Not a comcast customer? Too bad.

It's only going to get worse and worse for 'average' consumers that don't want to visit torrent sites nightly to find a not-so-virus-laden download of their favorite shows.

Family Guy and American Dad are trash. I have no idea what Venture bros, ATHF(?) and those other shows are, but if they're anything like that garbage that is American Dad, I'm sure they suck too.

They're absolutely talented, they are some of the best singers in the country. You're probably just jealous of them because you can't sing. Sure, they want to be famous, but when you have the talent, you deserve it. American Idol is the best way for them to get out there and heard by the masses. Besides, there are thousands of great singers that would DIE for the chance to have those producers help them make an album. Those guys know what sells, and I know if someone wins Idol, I can buy that cd knowing what I'm going to get. I buy the winner's album every year, plus anyone I really like, most of my music collection over the past several years has been from American Idol.

Just because I don't like family guy doesn't mean I'm not 'one of you.' I enjoy Fark's take on the news, and it's the fastest way to get the important stories when they break. Even though this site is overrun with whiny children that think everything is beneath them, it still makes me chuckle when i'm having my morning coffee.

That's a really unfriendly thing to say to a stranger. Just because I like something that's not overly sexual or violent when our family has TV time doesn't mean my children are autistic. If being like half the people on here is normal, I don't mind being weird.
