The letter M from MTV is MISSING. Details inside.
WHY DOES THIS ONLY HAVE (now counting mine’s) 20 VIEWS?!?! This is funny. Puppets are funny. This sketch is funny.
I feel like I’m catching on to this channel a lot later than I should.
Tumblr, Yahoo, whoever decided changing something that wasn’t broken:
Stop doing that crap.
Seriously and sincerely,
All of us.
I was just at Wal-Mart and I noticed this. It’s not just the default pink for girls thing, or the default skirt for girls, or how this costume looks nothing like Spider-Girl’s costume, but that this is an official Marvel product and they have the comic heroine on the front so you can see just how wrong it is.
Like, if your child likes Spider-Girl and wants to dress up as her, wouldn’t they be really disappointed at this costume? And if they don’t care about looking like Spider-Girl, what’s even the point of having this costume under the Spider-Girl brand with the heroine right on the front to sell it? o_O
Just for reference, here’s the Spider-Man outfit:
WTF!? It’s not a generic blue prince costume with some web-lines, an eye mask and a tie? B… but how would you know it was a Spider-MAN otherwise?
Seriously … the company used the ACTUAL SPIDER-GIRL COSTUME ON THE COVER and still made a frilly, pink number they call “Spider-Girl.”
Twenty-eight years ago today (April 23), Coca-Cola reintroduced their marquee beverage with a new formula and a bold name, Coke.
It was much ballyhooed and liked by a few.
Of course, it was hated by so many folks who preferred the original formula, and by July 10, 1985, Coke reversed itself and brought back “the real thing,” or at least a version of it sweetened with HFCS rather than cane sugar that they called Coca-Cola Classic.
Was it a publicity stunt to get people to be up in arms with them to bring back something they were already planning to do? Snopes says nope, but who’s to say what really happened that day?
Truth be told, I kind of liked New Coke. Kind of reminded me of Royal Crown Cola. dry but sweet, not syrupy sweet. Pity they’ll never bottle it again. People actually did buy it.
Hail to New Coke, and happy 28th birthday!
So, what I’m pretty much understanding is that if someone makes a comment that I dig and would like to reply to around these pages but now I can’t because the new layout of Tumblr won’t allow me to copy and paste it?
That’s … really damned stupid, Tumblr.
Color me confused, or maybe I’m stupid, but isn’t Words With Friends just Scrabble? And now Hasbro, the makers of Scrabble in the US, is making a Words With Friends board game, which is just … Scrabble.
I’m not a profane man.
I don’t use profanity as much as my peers. It’s already hard enough to be a POC in America trying not to give off the whole “angry Black man” stereotype.
I’m calm. I’m a lot calmer than I should be, and at times, it frightens me.
That aside, there was a great line in Risky Business:
"Sometimes you have to say, "What the fuck!""
In regards to this actual product, I feel the need to repeat those last three words (forgive me in advanced for this outburst of profanity) to Adidas, the makers of this abomination pictured here that is actually a real thing:
WHAT THE FUCK?!?
You know that GI Joe sequel that not only looks amazing but twenty-times better than the original film that was supposed to be coming out next month?
Paramount said wait a while longer. Like March 2013.
Yup. The studio’s delaying the premiere almost a whole year to “have an international push and 3D conversion.”
Studiospeak for “we’re scared of The Avengers, Batman, and Spider-Man”
Did you know ThunderCats returns to Cartoon Network on Marc h 24 at 9:30 AM E/P, two weeks from today?
Did you know a day earlier, Cartoon Network is premiering a new computer-animated Ben 10 movie at 7 PM E/P and part one of the Ben 10 Ultimate Alien series finale at 9 AM E/P?
Of course you didn’t.
Cartoon Network only promotes Level Up, Ninjago, Green Lantern, and the bullying special.
Idiots like me only promote things because Cartoon Network knows idiots like me could do it for nothing. But like I said, the internet shouldn’t be the sole advertising vessel for people who own television networks.
i have no clue what those numbers mean, i see 2.something/10 and i’m thinking that’s the score they gave it out of 10. but if you say its a good thing then I trust you
The Nielsen ratings, the criteria of how well something’s doing. It’s not a system out of 10, mind you. Each ratings point represents 1% of a particular television audience, in this case, children 6-11.
So, let’s say, for example, about 290 million television viewers in the United States. Out of that, let’s say that less than a quarter of that number has children 2-17. That’s about 57 million homes. Now, take about less than half of that for a representation of the 6-11 demographic. That’s a touch over 21 million viewers.
Each ratings point for the 6-11 audience represents about 1% of the 21 million viewers that age, so, about 210,000. viewers.
And less than 1% of the 290 million total viewers are even participating in the Nielsen ratings system.
Using what we know, Green Lantern got a 2.1 while Young Justice got a 2.2, meaning of all the shows that was on TV at that moment, 2.1% of kids 6-11 was watching GL and 2.2% of the same demographic watched YJ.
That roughly translates to Green Lantern getting about 441,000 viewers 6-11 for Green Lantern and 462,000 viewers 6-11 for Young Justice.
Is it a low number? If you’re just measuring that one demo, it’s anemic yet a comfortable success. The numbers are slightly better on Saturday mornings than they were on Friday nights. However, it’s just the numbers for only one demographic. The hard number is usually bigger, almost double that for total viewers.Something like Spongebob, which got a 5.5 in the 6-11 demographic, could have close to 2 million viewers if you count all the demographics.
The ratings that are made public usually depend on the demographic the network selling ad space to, or in Disney Channel’s reasoning, cable companies who keep it on the lineup.
Also, not everybody is always counted in the end. Remember, only 1% of the audience is represented by the Nielsens, and it tends to favor affluent, White upper-middle-class households. I’m of the belief that one household represents the viewpoint of one household, not 1% of the entire television audience, but until the system is changed, this is what we have.
And so far, in this case, it’s pretty good.
Smart is something nobody will ever accuse the management of Cartoon Network of ever being.
7 PM on the coasts on a Wednesday night would be prime real estate for an encore airing of DC Nation. It makes more sense to air it in a timeslot with a vast viewership (not to mention leading up to that Lego cartoon that’s there) on a day that actually ties in with the product the shows AND block are based on (translation: comics come out on Wednesdays) than, say, the next morning at the same damned time.
That is stupid as hell.
But like I said, nobody will ever accuse the management of Cartoon Network of ever being smart.
The Dukes of Hazzard
I think that’s it. Of ALL the shows currently in the Warner Bros. live-action television library, these are the only three series owned outright that are on an American television network. II picked pre-93 as a cut-off point because these shows will be 20 years old or older by the end of 2012.
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air doesn’t count because it’s not owned by Warner Bros, but rather NBC Universal (WB, for some reason, owns syndication and DVD rights, not unlike how Sony owns syndication and DVD rights to Seinfeld, which Warner Bros. does own).
But yeah, The Dukes of Hazzard's on CMT, V is on Syfy, and Martin’s on TV One and MTV 2. But nothing older than each of those shows (with the exception of Full House and Family Matters, which will probably be syndicated until the end of time) are found on television. Heck, Gilligan’s Island, a show that used to be on television every day of the week for many generations, is only seen on TheWB.com.
It’s weird that a company that had been determined to be the global leader of the internet generation has been so terrible at embracing the new medium let alone bringing their massive library to a wider, newer, younger audience.
