An Open Letter To Bravo

By Gabe Delahaye / November 3, 2008

Dear Bravo,

I guess it would be hard to run a TV station on the evening of an historic presidential election when it doesn’t make any sense for you to broadcast the returns. But seriously, Bravo? You’re airing a new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta tonight at 10PM, right when the polls close on the East Coast. Are you kidding me? You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. Seriously? Tonight? Whoops, you are a ridiculous TV channel.

And don’t be fooled, either, Bravo. It’s not like I’m upset that I’m going to be missing it in order to ENJOY A LANDMARK MOMENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY. I’m not like “Oh no, why couldn’t they have just pre-empted the new episode for next week like they’re doing with Fringe?” I ain’t care! I’m not going to watch this week’s episode on DVR, just out of silent but I think reasonable protest for how you’ve got to be kidding me. Perhaps this will give you some time (4 more years! Ugh, sorry.) to think about what you’ve done.

Oh, I’ve taken the liberty of CC’ing the Sci-Fi Network on this letter, because THE SAME GOES FOR YOU, SCARE TACTICS SEASON FINALE!

Sincerely,
Lindsay Robertson.
