Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

desperately hotWhen the clock chimed 10PM during last night’s Spurs-Pistons NBA Finals game, ABC noted that many viewers were probably just tuning in at that time to catch a regularly-scheduled episode of “Desperate Housewives” (even though it’s rerun season).

Rather than disappoint, the network came through with a courtside interview with “Desperate” star Eva Longoria, who “just happened” to be in the house. Something to do with being a Spurs fan.

When they started interviewing her, my summertime housemate Joe instantly started bitching about the break from the hoops action:

“I hate when they ask these dumb celebrities questions.. They don’t know what they’re talking about, and it’s just a waste of time!”

I allowed him that. And if they had interviewed, say, James Spader (another ABC star), I probably would have felt cheated by that minute of off-court focus.

But. It’s Eva Longoria. And she’s smokin’ hot.

So I felt pretty contented in giving up 60 seconds of NBA championship action to get an eyeful of Eva.
