So You Think You Can Program

Let me begin by saying that I hate back-seat drivers, couch coaches and people who continually think, and verbalize, how they would be a better [insert job title here]. Frankly, people like that deserve to have their hat handed to them, as it were. Now, in my business, everybody is a network programmer, a connoisseur of the content, a bastion of television taste. Yeah, right. If that were the case, "Arrested Development" and "Studio 60" would still be on the air. But I digress.

It is time, my friends, to put your money where your mouth is. I am inviting each and every one of you to join me at www.tvbigshot.com for a season-long fantasy game that is going to separate the wo(men) from the young'ens. My user ID is teeveewiz (yes, I think I am that good) and I am offering you the opportunity to have bragging rights over me (and a feature interview as part of TV Board) -- if you can beat me, that is. All you need to do is create an account, create your own lineup with your budget of $300 million, and then email me (techieandthemedia@yahoo.com) and let me know you have taken the challenge. Oh, and if it isn't enough that you could beat me and be publicly recognized for it, you could also win $100,000 courtesy of Bravo Digital's Television Without Pity -- the official sponsor of the site and contest.

Let the games begin.
