What’s on TV? A lot, I’d say,

Fare both good and not,

Any hour of the day,

High def and polyglot.

Abundant sex and violence,

The off-beat and the trite,

Opinion, sense and nonsense,

Sports from morn to night.

Lots of pretty women;

Of Vanna White I am a fan.

Games to test your acumen,

And win a trip to Mazatlan!

Jim Lehrer, Charlie Rose

Interview the great.

News from every network flows,

Controversy and debate.

Oprah fills the afternoon

With her wisdom and her ‘nice’.

Dr. Phil’s in your living room

Giving free advice.

Want to know the temperature

On the Himalayan slope?

Tune in the Weather Channel;

You’ll get the latest dope!

Leno and Dave Letterman

Keep us laughing after dark.

They’re snide and irreverent,

But often hit the mark.

TV keeps us occupied

And also up to date.

It’s much too easy to deride.

It also keeps us up too late!
