Media-Whore's D'Oevres

"At 1213 hours, I could see an older white male with gray hair standing outside my stall. He was standing about three feet away and had a roller bag with him. The male was later identified by Idaho's driver licence as Larry Edwin Craig {redacted} I could see craig look through the crack in the door from his position. Craig would look down at his hands, "fidget" with his fingeres, and then look through the crack into my stall again. Craig would repeat this cycle for about two minutes. I was able to see Craig's blue eyes as he looked into my stall." (Smokinggun)

"Once the province of the broadcast networks, blacks have seen the number of original shows aimed at them cut way back, and now TBS is moving in to fill the void. This summer it aired the top two shows among black adults 18-49, on both on cable and broadcast, the original comedy 'Tyler Perry’s House of Payne" and the movie 'Diary of a Mad Black Woman.' 'Payne' is averaging 1.22 million viewers in that demographic, according to Nielsen data analyzed by Turner Networks, making it the No. 1 show in the demo this summer. The No. 2 show, 'Diary,' has averaged 913,000 viewers over several airings this summer, putting it comfortably ahead of No. 3 Fox’s 'Hell’s Kitchen,' with 795,000, and way ahead of the CW’s No. 1 show among black viewers, 'Girlfriends,' whose reruns have averaged 591,000."
