Even The Networks Are Behind My Proposed Sick-Out!...

If you watched the Emmys on "regular TV" this year like I did (ie: not DVRed), you were undoubtedly bombarded with ads and images for ABC's premiere week, boasting the slogan "Stay at Home." Even though primetime programming doesn't begin until eight p.m., the network is urging people to take the days off, too, perhaps in preparation for the "monumental" events they will witness at night. Attempting to turn their lackluster programming into a national holiday is a bit laughable, but despite the fact that only two of their premieres have actually been penciled in on my calendar (neither of which even start this week, I might add), I am still intrigued enough to want to take part-- even if my motives are simply just to avoid having to show up at work for a few days!
