Neilsen hiveminds in the latter days of television

[ #24922 ]
Dear Horrible Alien Life-forms,

As you monitor the the tele-vision broadcasts from the US of America of Earth, you will note that now is the beginning of an entertainment dry spell, when the networks show only re-runs, as the Earthican population goes out to smoke meats and crystal math.

But I know how you, in your elevated depths, crave media. You should therefore tune your telereceptors to CSPAN2, which becomes BookTV on weekends. Their web site has listings data, in HTML, for Eastern timezone; but you may find other timezones and data formats here. Using those, you may find various programs of note.

Because you can't spend all day watching Brazilian softcore porn.
