Awesome congress. Awesome.

Thanks to Congress... never thought I would say that. They passed a law recently to make it illegal for commercial makers to crank up the volume on their ads. I am sure many of you have noticed that the volume on some of the commercials are ten times louder than the show you are watching. So you have to go back and forth with the volume to hear your show but not be blasted out by the commercials. Hooray for law makers! My ears thank you.

Microsoft to Create Its Own TV Service, Sources Say

Microsoft has been making some negotiations with TV networks in order to create an online pay-television system possibly trough the Xbox system. Microsoft plans to establish a monthly fee, The system will work similarly like other systems such as Google TV, and Netflix. Some of the difference will be off course the visual components that Xbox can offer, plus the new motion technologies where people can operate their TV with out having to use an actual remote controller, rather people will use their own hands help by the motion sensor the Xbox has.

Harry Potter Hits #1

Harry Potter and the Deatlhy Hallows-Part 1 managed to hold the Number 1 spot over the three-day weekend grossing around 50.3 million. It did better than the Twilights in a five day week. Next in line was Tangled holding the Number 2 to spot grossing around 49.1 million. I am not a fan of Harry Potter, but I guess I don't need to be for it do exceedingly well. Megamind and Burlesque came in holding the third and fourth spot with just around 12 million. Leaving Unstoppable with the great Denzel Washington at the Number 5 spot with just a little under 12 million.

Do You Love A TV Show...That Everyone Else Hates...

Fox won't be ordering more episodes of Running Wilde. The show was not perfect by a long-shot, its whole idea of adding a bit of a comedic side like Arrested Development sitcom just didn't work. I never watched the show to ever know if I would be interested in anything like that. However, occassionally I do find myself watching shows when I do get the chance to watch a little tv from the big four networks, and I fall into the same issue...watching a show that everyone else hates. It's a little sad. What can I say, tv shows ratings are truly based on the audience's preference. I guess there is not too many cool people in the world like I thought haha. What do you think???
