As we’ve done on Wednesday night for a while, after game night, a few friends and I sat down to watch the latest episode of Survivor. The beginning of the episode was interrupted by a weather update about a cloud that kind of looked like a tornado, and I anxiously fast forwarded in the hopes it wouldn’t last long.
Thirty minutes later, the update was over. We were left with only the final half hour of the show (which was fine, but not ideal).
Why does any weather interruption need to last 30 minutes? I figure there are two types of people who watch television:
So…why do lengthy weather updates exist anymore? Were people in St. Louis who sat down to watch Survivor live tonight happy that CBS spent 30 minutes talking about a weird cloud? Maybe I’m missing something.
