One of my favorite television shows is Community, starring The Soup’s Joel McHale, and needless to say I was pretty excited for this week’s stop motion animated Christmas episode. Unfortunately, New Orleans’ NBC affiliate WDSU sucks.
Instead of airing an episode that I had been looking forward to watching for weeks, WDSU decided to show the verdict announcement of the Katrina police shootings. Was that big news? Of course. Was it worth interrupting my show? You’re joking, right? Breaking news is what Twitter is for.
A real TV station would just put a blurb at the bottom of the screen and wait for the 10 o’clock news. WDSU, I will never be on your side. Don’t even get me started on New Orleans’ CBS affiliate WWL, who made me miss The Big Bang Theory.
