TV SHOWS THAT NEVER WERE - 9

 

The cable that serves me the gruel called television has a channel that predicts what will be on and when.  The channel allows me to scroll through all the available channels, showing seven at a time.  The format presents the channel letters, channel #, and the program(s) due in the next two hours.  If the program names are short and the timeslots are 30 min. the presentation is clear.

However, as we all know, life is not that simple.  Both program name lengths and timeslots vary a lot and that is the reason for and the source of the stuff in this P-gram.  Long program names are fine when the program begins and the entire screen is available.  However, after each 30 minutes long names have to be truncated to fit.  Apparently no effort at abbreviations is made.  Each truncation is an opportunity for a humorous, unintended combination.

Over the past few years I’ve spent a bit of time on this guide channel.  When I see an example of random combination due to truncation and connection that strikes me as interesting or humorous or stupid or whatever, I grab my camera and snap it.

Usually the second of the two channels is the combination that attracts me, but sometimes both of them do.  Have fun!
