People watch the Tonys? I think even the homosexuals gave that up a few years ago.

Do you two actually know anyone who's involved in theater?  It's still quite popular within the theatrical community, and that's kind of major in Atlanta.  Doubly true when one of the nominees for Best Musical is actually out of the local Alliance Theatre.  People were pissed.

My wife does some community theater, and hosted a watching party last night I thought I was going to have a wine glass thrown through the plasma.

And besides, it's the one awards show that's put on by people who actually know how to do a show and do it 8 times a week.  So if nothing else, it's entertaining.

One of my friends had two ex pupils on the show.  He got to see their first number, but not the second.

Isn't there a cream or a shot she can get to take care of that ugly rash?

I recall a hooker who had something similar down on Whisper Alley in Okinawa... hard to see in the dim red lights mama-sans would use in those rooms, but still bad enough that she could only manage $10 a lay.

Yes, that hooker had pretty good flexibility, and $10 was just right on Corporal's pay.

The performers yes. But the show is put together with TV people that are experts in one-off shows.

Atlanta stations regularly purge all of their older on-air talent when they get too expensive, so weekend late news anchors tend to be recent broadcasting school grads.

As a kid, we drove through, or rather, past, Atlanta. From the north, there was a vista of gleaming, futuristic skyscrapers. South of that, cookie-cutter slums filled with clapboard bungalows. I doubt it's changed much, at least from the I-75 vantage point.

Personally, I was amused by the panic in Dick Lexia's eyes as he thought "if I blow this, it's back to stuttering barista for me."

Which is about right for the DeVry Class of '12 valedictorian.

I'm surprised any station would cut off any award show. I assumed that kind of stuff wouldn't be allowed for a national broadcast by an Alphabet network. Though I don't watch the Tonys, I know of it and that it's a big deal for theater. Hell, Hugh Jackman hosted a couple of times.

And that anchor really sucked. They should demote him to doing weather reports in shiatty conditions.

CBS Atlanta released a statement.

Last night towards the end of the Tony Awards just after 11:00 p.m., WGCL encountered a few seconds of black and our local producers accepted that trigger as the end of the network broadcast and began our 11 p.m. newscast. The network feed of the Tony Awards was not over and WGCL did not air the final seven minutes of the broadcast. This was a human error and action is being taken to guarantee this does not happen again. We apologize to our viewers who were watching the broadcast. CBS Atlanta News is a passionate supporter of the arts; this error in no way reflects the opinion of WGCL-TV, CBS Atlanta News or its employees. We will be airing the final segment of the Tony Awards at the start of all newscasts at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. today.

I highly doubt they have producers in on a Sunday night. In other words, the master control operator who makes $10 an hour is the person we're gonna stick with the blame. This station, despite having CBS, the #1 rated network, as its lead-in to the news, is in last place in the Atlanta market. They're owned by a bunch of greedy f*cks called the Meredith Corporation which typically owns magazines. About 12 years ago they decided to buy a bunch of TV stations on the cheap, and run them cheaply as possible. This is what cheaply-run TV looks like.

I'm surprised that the Tonys are on local broadcast television. It seems like a very New York centric thing. I'm sure there are people around the country that are into musical theater, but if you actually want to see anything that's nominated for a Tony you have to go to Broadway. It's not like how a guy in Ottumwa can watch 'Argo' and tell his friends, 'Oh man, I bet that's winning the Oscar for Best Film. Don't sleep on Argo dog.' Same guy in Ottumwa can't go, 'You guys check out Pippin? Too legit man.' Yeah thanks for the hot tip bro. The furthest east I've ever been in Peoria. It's a small target audience is all I'm saying. Even if I'm down with musicals, if I haven't seen any of the ones nominated for Tonys because I live in Colorado Springs, that's not going to get me that terribly interested in watching either. Not that widespread an audience.

Do you see how that's an underwhelming or negative review?
