The other day, after watching cartoons, the TV treated my son to a five-second scene from "Fight Club" before I jumped on the remote and changed it. Luckily, it was the one scene from the movie that wasn't completely inappropriate. Unfortunately, now he keeps asking me what a "moosey" is. At least he's not asking me about "bitch tits."
What's even worse is the fact that about 90% of the time this happens, the TV lands on Sprout. I don't understand why; we only record one or two shows on Sprout. And I'm sure they're on in the morning, yet the TV is always on Sprout when my grown-up recordings end around 9:00 PM. And it's always on fucking "Caillou" (I can already tell I'm going to get so much traffic from parents Googling "fuck Caillou").
I'm pretty sure this is Sprout's schedule:
Seriously, PBS needs to get some more shows on their roster. Maybe during pledge drives, they could ransom our sanity by asking us to donate money in order to keep that whiny little bitch off the air. I know I'd throw a few bucks their way.
