The Australians among you may have noticed something wonderful on their television screens in recent weeks: Channel Ten have reduced screenings of Everybody Loves Raymond from eight to just three episodes a week!
The biggest travesty was ELR‘s domination of the precious 7 pm timeslot. And now it’s gone! No more baritone brother, no more meddling mother.
This is a triumph of the people, I tells ya. I didn’t actually get around to sending the petition to Channel Ten, but I am sure they heard our message, somehow. Right? Among the 146 protesters, there were some memorable comments:
“Everybody Loves Raymond is a shrill pseudo-comedy.” – Adam
“Boo Raymond, however ensure said programming is not replaced with equally unfunny Australian attempt at sitcom.” – Jeb
“Channel 10 is my favorite station – but not for long.” – Kristian
“Eyes glazed over” – Helen
“I break out in hives.” – Saigonsam
“I unplug my tv every night at 7, just to make sure I don’t see any.” – Si
