The TV network is not owned by Disney. Disney owns ABC. Fox Broadcasting Company is still owned by the Murdochs.

“…The remaining assets that were not acquired by Disney were spun off from 21st Century Fox as Fox Corporation. Its stock began trading on March 19, 2019. The company is controlled by the Murdoch family via a family trust with 39.6% ownership share….”: https://en.m.wikiped...Fox_Corporation

Yes, sorry, but they sold their TV studios, so Fox really makes no scripted content any longer.  (Original poster referred to TV shows).

Bart Simpson is constantly hinting that you don’t want to get in the same pants as Fox.

Golden rule: don’t watch Fox News, CNN and CBC. Print is OK as long as you take it with a grain of salt, but those “personalities” will just suck you right in


But you’re stronger than that right?

Now if CBC would get rid of Rosemary Barton we would have a true trifecta.

I think it would be better if they got rid of all the “personalities”




Person in the other room is watching CNN, I told them “you might as well be watching Young and the Restless“ which is their next favourite show.

They just roll eyes.

Eric Braeden is staying positive amid his battle with prostate cancer.

 

“The Young and The Restless” actor best known for portraying Victor Newman revealed his diagnosis with a 13-minute Facebook video shared Friday. Braeden said he learned of his cancer through other health issues.

 

The actor, 82, said he started to have problems with his prostate while on the mend from a knee injury.

 

https://www.latimes....o shared Friday.

 

 

The Daytime Emmy Award winner said that he had to urinate frequently and consulted with multiple specialists about his condition. While receiving a catheter to facilitate urination, Braeden said a doctor recalled seeing the actor on television.   :thumbsup:

 

“He says, ‘When I came from Vietnam, I learned English watching your show!’ I said, ‘S—, man. You tell me this at this time?” Braeden said.

Myself I’m in love with BBC, it might be the blatantly hypnotic intro: https://youtu.be/xxqTXlMVizg

If you want a real treat here’s the production of the BBC intro: https://youtu.be/llBi71jziUk



Haven’t watched Young and the Restless on a regular basis since I was 12 years old, it was an awkward stage in my life.

Worth a listen.

 

He says we rarely debate important topics:  war, civil liberties, emerging science (I presume he means AI), demographic change, corporate power, natural resources.
