Well, wikipedia gives a nice "history" of the word.
My local cable company is feuding with Fox. Right now they are not broadcasting either channel 5 (fox) or 9 (mostly reruns of other shows). I don't care for the weekend but starting Monday with House I'm going to lose a lot of shows I watch including Glee. I"m hoping fan pressure re the Yankees games (popular locally) will make someone cave. You all will have to give me a synopsis....Fox takes forever to post shows online.
