The Lyrics

its run by big wheels
who seek mass appeal
they need this make a living
i don't think its right
i'm way too bright
shows like this...can't be forgiven

i cry
avert my eyes
its only TV wasteland

sadly, take a stand
now my TV's banned
pulled out the wires
could anything be bolder ?
its nice and quiet here
there's no more TV near
no more antenna
no more remote controller

TV wasteland
its only TV wasteland
TV wasteland
oh yeah
TV wasteland
and i hate it !

Nice homage to Newton Minow, FCC commissioner in the 60s who called TV a "vast wasteland." Imagine what he'd say today.

"CSI: NY"? Why will the actress from Providence never leave that show to an understudy? Because no one can spell Melina Kanakaredes!
