The Lyrics

You just want to doze,
At summertime shows.
Doesn't pay to look,
If you look but don't expect too much.
Poison TV, Poison TV,
Late at night when you're viewing,
Poison TV will be screwing around.

There's 'Driving Miss Daisy',
Showtime will make you crazy.
You're never gonna win,
It's just the same old spin.

Poison TV, Poison TV,
Late at night when you're watching,
Poison TV will be botching profound.

Springer is a dinger,
ER can be a zinger,
News on Fox will give you the right pitch,
Twilight Zone will fool you,
That old Bay Watch will drool you,
Summer TV makes you wanna switch.

Need a new promotion,
Lose this slow motion.
Only reruns can be found,
Summer TV makes you run aground.

Poison TV, Poison TV.
Late at night when you're watching,
Poison TV will be botching profound.

Fifth Wheel's gonna kill ya,
Seinfeld's not gonna thrill ya,
The millionaire's not gonna make you rich,
Dateline just won't do ya,
Nightline is a real jewel, yeah,
Summer TV's gone into the ditch.

You may get a notion,
To watch a paid promotion.
Entertainment has been downed,
Way 'til autumn and it will rebound.

Poison TV, Poison TV.
Late at night when you're watching,
Poison TV will be botching profound.

Late at night when you're viewing,
Poison TV will be screwing around.

I think the West Wing was still on when you wrote that, so it wasn't all bad. Now it is even worse.
