Democratic convention dominates television

Michelle Obama was the keynote for last night’s Democratic Convention while the rest of the networks mix coverage and their shows. A highlight has to be NBC’s new America’s Toughest Jobs, one that has us asking, isn’t being president one of those?

It’s the start of another week. I finished my weekend with a few more Olympic events and then I watched prehistoric alligators attack on Primeval! Great stuff. I got a sneak peek at the season premiere of Ghost Hunters from SCI FI Channel and if you can believe your own ears then that place is haunted.

No ghosts tonight, just a lot of Democratic partying.
