More network news

Oh brother, I'm afraid we're going to be treated to a long series of rants about how nobody watches network news. Umm, actually, a LOT of people do. Maybe fewer than used to when there were only three networks, but not only is Mr Tinsley still not funny, he's still wrong. But the funniest part of all this is having a joke about how nobody watches network news delivered in the context of having your character, um, watching network news.

Now it is possible to make funny jokes about low viewership, but they generally only work as self-deprecating humor. For example, if I were to refer to my reader of this site. Alas, we won't get that here since it's likely that in Tinsley's case he's afraid that if he says something about nobody reading his comic strip, then maybe the editors who publish his strip will stop running it.
