My first entry. I read somewhere (the Times, perhaps?) that local TV programming is on the rise in the rest of the world and that this is negatively impacting the bottom line of American content providers. On a macro level, I can't help but see this as a good thing. American TV is our most visible manifestation of cultural imperialism. Not that I don't think the free markets should decide such things (I do), it's just that with more local content, perhaps those less fortunate than us (let's face it, they're all less fortunate than us) can stop complaining that America is stealing their soul through their TV sets. Oh yeah, Joe Millionaire debuts tonight on FOX.
