There may have been some good television on NBC Tuesday night but we’ll never know because the numbnuts who run WSLS Channel 10 in Roanoke kept interrupting prime time programming to tell us something we already knew — that it was snowing outside.

Between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., the idiot talking heads cut into Law & Order, Criminal Intent and Law & Order Special Victims Unit no less than six times, usually at key dramatic points in both programs.

Tried calling to complain. Couldn’t get through because the lines were busy. Not surprising. Others were probably as pissed off as we were.

It might have been useful is any of the interruptions were informative but each simply repeated the same information over and over.

But why should be be surprised? This is the same station that runs religious con-man Pat Robertson’s 700 Club every morning and tries to pass it off as a legitimate news program.
