I hate Oprah and Dr Phil because of the numbers of students who watch 
both shows zealously, and then use them as *research* for essays on 
social topics. So yes, I do look down on them.

My television broke, and my husband got mad at me because I made him buy 
a new one two days later. He was all - we lived without a tv for 3 years 
(until he got one because he needed to watch the world cup of soccer), 
why do we have to have it? No tv and no beer make Homer go crazy.
