HAHAHA!!  Rob, you said about Zoe Saldana exactly what my wife and I say every time she comes on screen.  She is a beautiful woman that we are all being forced to watch die slowly of an eating disorder.... and Hollywood just keeps cashing in.

Karas,

try watching hockey. No fat guys play this sport and it's pretty fast. :)

I might actually enjoy hockey.  I played soccer when I was a girl so I understand the rules.  But it just comes down to the fact that I don't care who wins. 

Look, sports are fine and all but I don't think they are very important.  It's just grown men being payed lots of money to play a children's game.  If you enjoy watching that sort of thing, have at it.  But it irks me when your silly children's games affect the shows I want to watch.  If CBS could broadcast football without screwing up their entire sunday schedule then I really wouldn't care about it one way or the other.

 It's grown men being paid a lot of money playing a silly game interfering with your silly shows were grown men and women are paid lots of money to play silly make believe. What a conundrum.

Sports sometimes carry more drama and intrigue than most shows. Plus it usually doesn't have such a predictable ending as tv shows

LOL! Wise

Ashton Kutcher got paid 24 million for 1 season of Two and Half Men.

There are never reruns in sports! :)

Watching sports can also a great motivator to actually be more active. I play hockey and what really helps is actually watching it. I also think of my kids and why they want to play soccer or street hockey. Seeing it on TV gives it a big boost.

But I also agree that sports interfere with TV shows. Futurama on Fox years ago was treated like crap because it had a Sunday 7 pm time slot. Football games would overlap it and sometimes the show would start late or be canceled. I also remember when I was always looking forward to the Simpsons Halloween speciaks on Fox but sadly would only be played, after Halloween because Fox was busy televising the baseball playoffs.

Wise, if scripted dramas ran overtime and preempted sporting events I'd say you had a point but they don't.

Sports is only dramatic if you care who wins.  if you don't it's just a lot of people running around throwing a ball.

 Actually the drama is far more than just who wins. There are plenty of personal stories of overcoming obstacles in life and personal tragedies for example. There are feuds between players, coaches and ownership.

 
It's the best "reality tv" has to offer because it isn't scripted and as such no one can completely say when it'll end or what the outcome will be. A great example is the Olympics and they tell someone's tale, the odds and obstacles and life story. People become riveted, it isn't much different than that except it doesn't just happen every 4 years
 
But I do understand your annoyance over preempted programming
