Look Who’s On TV

The guy I watched was intense. It’s real intensity. Still, maybe too intense. Not sure. Intense is better than lethargic.

Jon Stewart is on vacation. I went grazing last night. Too many channels. Too much narrowcasting. No one makes shows for me anymore. I am in no one’s demo. Click. Click. Click.

Click.

Oh my God. It’s me. I’d stumbled on our late night replay of the 11:00 PM newscast.

Don’t get me wrong. I have watched myself before. This was different. This was a surprise.

There are things I do nearly every night, mannerisms and phrases. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact it’s to be expected. They stood out last night. I’m not alone in noticing. A co-worker even does an impression of me.

The guy I watched was intense. It’s real intensity. Still, maybe too intense. Not sure. Intense is better than lethargic.

It was just weird watching myself in this unexpected way. There’s just not a better way to explain it.

On the other hand I couldn’t turn away.

  1. Aww, Geoff. Don’t be hard on yourself. You always look great. Any mannerisms or intensity are part of YOU. We like that. If you stood there and blandly read the cue cards,it would be boring and, more importantly, it wouldn’t be you.
