I did and I hate Gervase already.

Who is Gervase? I don't remember ever seeing him before.

I watched The Crazy Ones and wish I hadn't bothered. Bland, unfunny. Quite a comedown for Gellar, from slaying vampires to playing straight man to an over-the-hill comic.

Gervase was on the very first Survivor. He was lazy and wouldn't do any work. He said he was there for a vacation, not to work. He also said "Nothing is dumber than a woman, except maybe a cow." He has four illegitimate children, one of whom was born while he was away playing at Survivor. There's not a whole lot to admire about Gervase.

Did anyone watch Master Chef Junior? Those kids (all between 8 and 13 years of age) turned out the most marvelous-looking dishes. They knew how to plate and some of them used ingredients I've never heard of. I had no idea children could cook like that.

And they all knew how to pronounce those long foreign words. I wasn't sure I wanted to watch this show, but after seeing those kids perform one time, I wouldn't miss it now.

New TAR tonight.

TAR had its usual strenuous first leg, and already I'm wondering if any of those teams is going to win. Kind of a sorry bunch of racers.

A question for those of you who get DirecTV. Recently I've been getting two new channels, Pivot (which showed a Farscape marathon yesterday) and Audience (which shows 24 on Tuesdays without commercials). Since TV providers don't give anything away, I'm assuming that before long those two will be bundled with two or three junk channels and offered as a package for an additional fee. What I'd like to know is whether this is a local thing or if those two channels are being shown nationally. Audience is Channel 101 and Pivot is Channel 267.

On a more serious note, both NBC and CNN have abandoned projects about Hillary Clinton because the Republican National Committee voted to ban both networks from coverage of the 2016 presidential debates.

I don't know why they have to kick people out of the race for coming in last on a given leg. They don't kick runners out of a race for trailing at the end of the first lap (in fact, winning runners frequently do trail for a while, then win with a burst of speed. The same is true of horse races).

So both CNN and NBC caved. Not really surprising that the Republicans resorted to blackmail, that's their style. But the fact that they can get away with it is disturbing.

We have Pivot and Audience here, so it's nation-wide.

It must be, because we have them here too.

I don't know what everyone else thinks, but I thought Ziva's exit was pretty lame.

Yes, it was. That whole business about Ari was just a rabbit pulled out of a hat at the last minute to provide an excuse for Ziva to leave. Flimsy motivation, not at all convincing. Now Ziva is going to...find herself? Bleaghh.
