It is a quarter past ten in the morning and I am in Burlingame, CA at the MeeVee offices. Three of us are sitting around a wide-screen TV watching an advance screener of televised trainwreck “Hey Paula.” I am shocked that I am watching TV at ten in the morning. Also I can’t sit still because Paula is so horrible. Everyone else loves it, but I am beginning to despair for all of humanity. At the end, Paula says “I’m tired of people not treating me like the gift that I am.” What kind of a gift is that, Paula?

Update: Here’s my review/commentary over at MeeVee. Yes, I get mean about it.
