Girlfriend wanted to watch the Macy's Day Parade.
Almost 30 minutes and no parade yet. Some BS from the hosts, a crappy song from Sting, a tribute to the Estabans, and a play that had a song about Sticking it To the Man.
I love the holidays.
I never watch it. I hate parades.
You never watch the Thanksgiving day parade on CBS. The contract is with NBC. They have the better coverage. That’s been the case for at least 50 years
I suspect a heavy dose of fear mongering by the hosts regarding our new President Elect...
how many LGBQTRDFES groups are marching?
Most parade coverage has devolved into two hour long commercials of the latest insipid shows and perverted pop culture crap.
Oh, and in between you see some floats and hear some marching bands.
When you’re with your girlfriend you’ve got to at least pretend you’re enjoying yourself.
I haven’t cared about parades since I was 10 or so.
My boxed set of Barnaby Jones has more to offer.
I heard that it is delayed this year because the woman from Macy’s who is in charge of the parade found out that the Santa was drunk, and she had to scramble to find a new one.
Never been much of one for watching parades - except while in the military where I participated in a good number.
Last year, our family turned it off when the “Kinky Boots” tripe was promoted as the greatest show ever.
NBC- I skip the parade but I do watch the dog show on next.
I hear you. :)
Parade is 3 miles up 7th Ave...won’t get there until 10:15 or so..
NBC has good coverage.
CBS....awful. A few outside shots, but mostly singers like Sting doing pre-recorded numbers from indoor sound stages.
Whatever happened to that pushy Gimble’s guy?
FWIW Kinky Boots is a very good movie about a man who is trying not to loose his fathers shoe company after the father died unexpectedly.
Sure it has a man in it who dresses up as a woman and sings - but it’s much larger than that. He’s trying not to fire all of his employees.
I would think the play would be just bloody awful.
I’m a terrier (smooth fox) fan.
