The only 60 minute thing I'm interested in anymore has Dogfish in front of it.

It still feels weird not having them say "those stories and Andy Rooney tonight on 60 minutes"

/that ticking clock still makes my sphincter twitch - growing up it meant 'bath and bed, weekend is over' and, usually, "oh shiat, I haven't done my homework"

60 minutes is a for-hire shilling infomercial now.

I'm sure that if you crammed a microphone under his headstone, you'd hear him being crotchety about being dead

This, and the died with Hewitt rema Propaganda shill show for hire. At least they waited until most of their audience was too old to notice.

Pathetic excuse for journalism.

For me, however, the mere existence of Andy Rooney indicated this was never a show about quality.

You must have had an entertaining childhood.

Oh wait, that's not how you meant that...

I'm in my 40s, and even I think of 60 Minutes as being something certain people watch after The Lawrence Welk Show.
