TV Report: A Quick Complaint

Okay, seriously, Fox... when you advertise "two full hours" of The X-Factor, that means two full hours that start at 7 and go until 9. That does not mean wait around and dump half a Ben & Kate repeat (?) and talk for 41 minutes to determine whether or not today's baseball game is really really super truly rained out or not, then half of the new X-Factor episode, then 10 minutes of a Mindy Project episode because the rain's over and we can pick up our game now, sorry, X-Factor will air in full next Tuesday. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: this is the 21st century, you have broadcast commitments, either you're a network or a sports channel, fucking which one is it?

This is why I don't take you seriously as a network, Fox, and this is why I don't typically get caught up in your crappy programming. It's not worth chasing down. The X-Factor is not appointment viewing, and it is certainly not rescheduled appointment viewing. Get over yourself.
