Quick Notes on Wednesday (7/22)

We have important news on Wednesday (7/22).

President Obama is scheduled to have a press conference at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT on all major over-the-air channels except for Fox, which will air So You Think You Can Dance instead, and as per the Obama White House protocol, will not be answering any questions from anybody at Fixed Noise as punishment. I'm lucky that the Phillies game this Wednesday is an afternoon affair with Da Cubs, but the game August 19 is a night time affair with Arizona (it's sold out because of a Brad Lidge figurine giveaway), that is the date for the Season Two finale of I Survived a Japanese Game Show.

As for Countdown? Live show at 9 PM, and followed at 10 by the live blog of ISaJGS. ABC dumped a PrimeTime special on oil to make room for the presser.


  1. Obama only takes questions that his staff writes for the reporters.

  2. He then reads the answers from his teleprompter...

    I guess I'm going solo then on the ISaJGS finale live blog. Aspeaking of which, I probably will be around tonight. And yes, I saw last week's episode where Drew got eliminated. That viewing of the episode was an hour ago, but nonetheless, I saw it.

  3. I have tonight's back. I'll get Scribble live up ASAP.

  4. Oof. I should really have read that post better. I did not realize until now that ISaJGS was on at 10 tonight, and not 9 like normal. I'm feeling fine now and will probably be around for the first part of the show, but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to last tonight.

    /Jet lag'd.

  5. Well I hope you can make the full hour, because the invite.

    BTW, Fixed Noise did not get called on again in the presser. they'll claim it was a plot against them because they pre-empted the newser because there was no news.
