I’ve signed on to check my stats maybe 3 times yesterday and they held steady at zero for 90% of the day. ouch. My solution was to post something but I was drawing a huge blank so I went to the ever reliable (for me anyway) Kludgy Mom Idea Bank and went through her hundreds of prompts and found this one:
If you had to watch one movie or television show, or listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be….and why?
I think we all know what my answer would be to that one. But only if they had constant new episodes.
I mean… you had to see that one coming. However, no matter how much I love a show, song or movie there’s sometimes IS too much of a good thing. So to combat this, I decided that I would probably need my own television station so that there’s some variety. Probably. ha! Who am I kidding? My dream is to have my own station. Network? Empire? Eh, too far.
Running a television network is not one of my many talents, so please, if you do have experience in television excuse any non-nonsensical things that may grace this page. That being said, I’d call my network (I’ve upgraded to network because I’ve got big plans) TeenieTV, since MTV is already taken. I’d love for the channel number to be 714, but I think that’s taken as well. Hopefully the cable providers are flexible when I go in to
My channel would be an eclectic mix of old and new. I love a good 90’s sitcom so many of those would be on rotation. The Golden Girls, The Golden Palace, Designing Women, ALF, any and all of the TGIF lineup, etc. Then I would have Primetime shows like The Mindy Project, The Middle, Once Upon a Time, Jane the Virgin, Chasing Life, Blue Bloods, all the shows that frequent my DVR. I also love a good 90’s dramedy so Sisters, Providence, ER, etc would also have a spot. Finally, shows that I loved but were got cancelled would have a place too. Come on over Gossip Girl (which I know technically wasn’t cancelled but the last two-ish seasons sucked so I need some more seasons to rectify this situation),Emily Owens, MD, and Red Band Society. I’d throw some movies on there too. Mostly rom-coms and Disney. Ugh. there aren’t enough hours in a day or days in a week.
For the kids, I would have TeenieToons which would be all NickToons and Disney shows from, you guessed it, the 90’s. Was there a better time for children’s programming? I DON’T THINK SO.
I’d have my own reality show called RealaTEE (like reality. sometimes i even impress myself). My life is probably not exciting enough for a show but my network, my rules. Also, I need a place to put all of my favorite reality shows that have been cancelled. Growing Up Gotti, Rich Girls, Sorority Life, My Super Sweet 16, Scrappers, Brooklyn 11223. And if any of these shows wanted to come back, they would have a home on the RealaTEE channel. this is embarrassing.
Since I upgraded to a network and also love YouTube, I would add TeenieTube to the channel listing. This would be where I would offer my favorite Youtubers their own shows. Basically, professionally filmed and edited vlogs and how-to videos. I would ask The Schuermans, Benji and Judy, Anna and Jonathan, Nicola Foti, Louise, Marie, Lori, Joseph Birdsong, Miranda Sings among others to have a show on my network. i can’t believe i’m admitting to how long i sit in front of some sort of screen. #judgementfreezone.
Finally, I’d add TeenieTunes. It would be like an MTV Hits kind of station except it would play whatever is on my Spotify playlist. And I’m sure you could guess what’s on there. Death Metal – tons of it.
Now that I’ve embarrassed myself with the amount of TV I watch I guess I could end it here.
What show could you watch endlessly? Would you watch TeenieTV? I’m thinking it’s a pretty niche market. What shows would you put on your TV station?
