When you can take a shot at CNN it is worth the post. The neilson ratings for the new Piers Morgan’s show are dropping to the obscure. Everyone thought it was going too alright and during the debut show on January 17 there was 2.1 million viewers that show did have Oprah Winfrey. Day two the rating dropped by 50% and before the month closed it dropped another 50% from that. We are going out on limb here but by the middle of next week it could dip below 500 thousand viewers. The lowest rated show so far had a couple of guests that automatically bring viewers and eye traffic of any male that just happens to scan by. The Thursday night show has two Kardashians girls talking about their breasts fake or real and sex tapes, could not bring eyeballs to the screen. We are going to give the show time but wonder how much CNN can hold on. Losing Larry King and his octogenarian following has made a replacement not only difficult but they might have to look at this choice as a loser based on the loss of audience. They thought they could move him right in and Larry King guests and audience would follow along this was a major over estimation.
FX makes the best free television. The only channel that compares is HBO that you pay for. The finale of Sons of Anarchy was the closing finale we had not expected. In past finales they leave a hanger that leaves you wanting more and waiting for a new season. This year was different they closed all the lose ends and delivered it all in a nice bow on top. It was the first finale where the guys actually pull off the perfect plan. The first season finale say them all going to jail, the second say Abel the son kidnapped and disappearing. This finale was a combination of both of those things with a twist. At one point you thought they were all headed back to jail and earlier you thought they lost the son for good. We do not need to spell it out as it was a finale for the ages reminiscent of a Sopranos finale where the people that cause the disruption weather they are righteous or evil pays the ultimate price in the end. This show has lifted itself to must see status to becoming one of the favorite shows around the office. When Rescue Me finishes up next year it will be the best show on free TV.

Have you heard about the XDMA6630 from Dual Electronics? This is going to take your music pleasure to the next level. Let face it when it comes to listening to music in your car your CD player is so yesterday. Your sound system these days is being carried around in your pocket on your iPhone, iTouch, iPod, or Cell phone; this is where all your current music is stored. The XDMA6630 has high-speed functionality and is Bluetooth ready for connectivity. The front panel has a USB connection that can give you direct access and controls your Apple devices like iPod® and iPhone®. There is also a 3.5mm auxiliary input so any kind of MP3 players that outputs to head phones can be used. There are also 2-RCA preamp outputs so you could connect another device using that functionality. Most of the time this enough but Dual gave the mobile receiver a detachable face which is easy to read and use. If you have not seen it the unit features sleek and subtle contours accentuated by the 2-line black and white LCD. There is a wireless remote control included, and for a couple of bucks more you can add the accessibility of a steering wheel control interface when plugged in with the PAC-SWI-PS adapter. You can increase your cool factor by being the first to own the hot gift of the year. Finally, someone has taken music the way we listen to it back where it belongs in the driving experience. There is nothing better than a good song, open road, and the windows down.
It looks like the U.S. Supreme Court is weighing the first RIAA file sharing case. We hope that when the docket is set for the next session, the so-called “innocent infringer” case will be heard. The copyright infringement case pending before the justices was over the February decision ordering a university student to pay the RIAA $27,750for sharing 37 tracks at $750 a track when she was a high school cheerleader. There have been an estimated 20,000 individuals the RIAA has sued for file-sharing music. The petition to review the appellate court ruling challenge weighs whether the innocent-infringer defense to the Copyright Act’s minimum charge of $750 per track fine may apply to online file sharing. If you did not know the innocent infringer is someone who does not know she or he is committing copyright infringement. The chances are slim as the high court usually grants less than one percent of petitions sent to it. We think it is pretty hard to think that a person who is stealing music in the first place, does not know they are haring with others. We hate the RIAA for the way they went about crushing the little people to make a statement.

The Tea512 gang went to Slash at the House of Blues and to say it was a blast is an understatement. If you had ever seen Guns N Roses back in the day it was also a full throttle high octane show. There were a lot of moving parts and plenty to see. Looking back on that now the greatness of Slash might have been lost. This is not the case for the Slash solo show he tore it up and loud. The two hour set contained songs from the new solo album, Slash’s Snakepit, Velvet Revolver and GNR classics. Halfway through the set he stood on the stage by himself and ripped up an ear splitting guitar solo with the trademark Godfather theme. To say it was the best show we have seen in years is not saying much as we have not seen any rock and roll bands. We say that because when you see a guy like Slash you realize what rock and roll used to be and what we are pretending it is today. If you get a chance to see Slash do not miss it, this is a show that when you wake up the next morning you were really glad you were there because it was everything rock and roll is supposed to be.
The best part of fall is Football. Today we get a full slate of NFL games, including a night tilt with America’s Team the Dallas Cowboys. We also can enjoy a double header tomorrow night on Monday night. This will include media darling’s fresh of hard knocks the New York Football Jets. We do not write much about sports unless some ridiculous happens. We know we probably could find something everyday but we pick and choose. We woke in a great mood just knowing they were going to lace them up today. It is great to see football return as it is also a sign to get to work. This is the time of year kids are back in school, vacations are over, and winter is staring us cold so hard work can begin. This means most of the work force is sitting back at the office and projects both capital and smaller can be planned. This might be the final piece that pushes the economy, stock market, and maybe even the job market. Spend the day in front of your TV and enjoy Americas true past time, college football Saturday and Professional football Sunday. We do not have to tell you we are ready for the football and let the games begin.
SOA returned to FX with a smack down. The show is brilliant if you like the grit of The Wire and the dialog of The Shield. If the first episode of season three was a book it would be a page turner. The building of rage was growing through out the show. The characters were all functioning but off. We see the doctor having trouble focusing on being a doctor, the mother needing to see her daddy, the leader needing to find the way, and the father missing the son with a rage inside. We watch as jacks pushes the doctor away because he knows everything he will ever touch will be forced to live his life. This is the theme for the first 50 minutes which comes to a head at the Prospects funeral. The doctor finds where she belongs and Jacks turns his rage outside and destroys an enemy with ruthless abandon. There are questions and his son seems to be in Ireland, the boarded up smoke house cannot be the end of the white supremacists. We are on board for the ride and it going to be hot. Sons of Anarchy as the third season begins are rising to the mantle of Rescue Me, The Shield, and The Wire.
The Rescue Me finale for the season was nothing more than an ending of a show. They have filmed all the episodes so cutting it half was going to be without a cliffhanger. The ending was still shocking. When you consider Tommy spent the whole season trying to recover from thinking he was going to hell. He quit drinking and as Janet told him is trying to save the world. He is trying to help everyone and falling short all over. The biggest place is with his kids. The greatest twist in last night finale was the finale scene. Tommy has always been able to hear and talk to dead people most of the time he was inebriated. Last night as he sits thinking, his wife is pregnant after forty and not telling him. He walks over to pull the blanket up that had fallen over his now paraplegic godchild. This is the first time Tommy sees an undead person talk to him and it happens in a sober state. The season had many highlights for the firehouse, a fight between black Sean and Franco, the shutting down of the firehouse, the captain standing taller than the chief, and a rescue without equipment. We watched Franco try to kook up with Janet, Tommy does Hook up with Janet, Shiela hooks up with Tommy’s cousin and Lou seems to be on the verge of death. There are only 13 shows left and finale is on 9/11/11 on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11.
