Coming up for Air

I’m back! I should have warned you back in September that I was going to be starting school again as well as an internship doing some web marketing for an awesome non-profit study abroad organization. So needless to say, I’ve been working and studying like crazy the past two months. As much as  I want to be a dedicated blogger and say that in my (very limited) free time I continued to blog, but my free time was instead dedicated to my bed and my book (currently reading I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolf – finally). I still have a few weeks left of class until I can really breath again but things are finally winding down.

I’m not a huge sports buff (limited viewing to Big Ten football and Red Wings playoff hockey) so there is a good chance I won’t watch this show, but the list of sports maniacs and satire junkies in my facebook news feed is long enough to make this a perfect addition to Comedy Central. It’s a natural place for this show, in line with The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. But I wonder if there is a line between the perfect amount of news satire and too much. I would hope that they will at least put The Onion on a different night.
