I so wanted to move from 10pm eastern to 7pm and I have been so excited! It is so much more fun to have the earlier hour!
I get to have dinner at home, and a new adventure for all of us on OTR, plus new dedicated studio, new set etc…..no more dinners of DOTS from vending machine for dinner….nor dinners out of a paper bag or pizza box at my desk etc….YAHOO!!
But suddenly – for reasons I don’t fully understand – tonight, as I started thinking about it a bit more, and for the first time, I got a bit sentimental. 10pm for 11 1/2 years has been VERY good to us! We have “owned” that hour for 11 1/2 years! That’s fun! It just feels like it is ours.
You – the viewer and blogger – have been VERY good to us — YOU have been very loyal….made us #1 at 10pm for 11 1/2 years…..so suddenly tonight (and for the first time as I am usually doing flips with excitement over the 7pm) I got a bit sentimental. I realized that all these years, maybe I really do like DOTS from the vending machine and maybe I liked dinner out of paper bag or carton. I like the news stories at 10pm…I like you.
Oh well….that was just a momentary sentimental moment. I am over it. :)
After 11 1/2 years as #1 in the 10pm hour, I really am ready for a new challenge, and I am thrilled to go 7pm eastern. Please don’t abandon us — I will miss you if you do!
