TV Would be So Much Better If...

There was no Miley Cyrus.

I'm over the age of...whatever age people are that willingly subject themselves to the drivel that populates the Disney Channel. I've gone a long time without knowing the difference between Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus. And now that I do, I've determined that the dislike I feel for them is equally distributed--you know, wait a minute no that's not true--I definitely hate Miley Cyrus more because she's the one I've had to endure the most. First it was the Disney Christmas Parade (I couldn't get to the remote fast enough and then I left it there at out of morbid curiousity). Then there she was on Regis and Kelly Lee where they played a clip from "Hannah Montana" which removed all doubt that maybe there was a chance this chick was talented in some capacity, perhaps acting, since it surely wasn't singing. After seeing the clip it was clear--that nasal, twangy screeching she calls singing is her strong suit.

Then! There she was on Dick Clark's Rockin Eve doing far too much emoting than was comfortable in what amounted to a telecast that was more like a Disney Channel infomercial than the happening party that I've come to depend on Dick Clark to provide for my New Year festivitying. An aside: Why were the Jonas Bros. outfitted like extras from a glam version of Oliver Twist? The kid in the top hat's ears disturbed me.


  1. What kind of name is Miley, anyway?
