“Go ahead, laugh. Thank you. I appreciate it. But the fact is, I’m here. Now, tomorrow you’ll know I wasn’t kidding… and you’ll think I was crazy. But, look, I figure it this way. Better to be king for a night than a schmuck for a lifetime.”
-Robert De Niro, the King of Comedy (1983)
It’s been weird adjusting to the new Fall TV season. I’m not just talking about new programming. Even the selected time slots for reruns have become a conflict. I’m used to two episodes of the Simpsons a night on FOX. Now, there’s only one. I have been looking to find a gap for those nights I don’t want to watch it’s replacement, the Big Bang Theory.
