Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

I wonder why “Blogjam: TV”, the blog for St. Petersburg Times television critic Chase Squires, isn’t attracting more eyeballs. If the number of comments per post is indicative of readership, then it doesn’t appear to be drawing them in, despite plenty of exposure in the paper.

It’s a shame, because he’s currently dropping some quality dispatches from the annual Television Critics Association summer press tour in Los Angeles. Like this one, which contains a hilarious rant by Adam Carolla after being provoked by a smartass critic:

“Hold on. Listen. Why don’t you just go to the bar, write whatever s— you’re going to write. Just write the show sucks and I’m using my own money and I’m … just go write it now and leave me alone, would you. Jesus Christ. Write something s—- about the show and give the mike to somebody else, please. I don’t care if any of you like the show. It’s going to be a great show, and you’ll just be wrong. Everyone hated “The Man Show” and everyone had a problem with “Love Line.” Everyone has a problem with everything I do, but the shows are good. So there you go. Thank you. Thank you. Oh, “The Man Show?” Minus four stars, minus three stars. I got minus a million stars. You look up at night when you’re in Colorado, that’s how many stars I got minus. Fine, the shows go on. Everyone likes the shows.”

For the record: I thought “The Man Show” was tired tripe, even taking into account its self-deprecation. “Love Line” was good, although it paled in comparison to its original radio incarnation (just about the only instance where I’ll choose radio over TV).

what's the square root of this apartment?
I knew that Christian Finnegan looked familiar! And it’s not his passing resemblance to Biff from Back to the Future, either.

No, to me, he’ll forever be known as Chad in “The Mad Real World” sketch from “Chappelle’s Show”. I don’t care how many stand-up gigs and VH1 shows he scores.
