But What Will Become of Local On The 8s?

The Weather Channel is up for sale, at an auction no less. According to the New York Times, the network may for $5 Billion and is being looked at by the likes of NBC and Comcast.

How much would I pay for The Weather Channel? A whole lot of nothing. Whenever I put it on, it is a commercial and usually for something awkward like Cialis, AARP or The Scooter Store. If they really want to cater to old people, they'd show things like this:

Attention Weather Channel: I am not 75, I just want to know whether it's cold enough to warrant a long-sleeve tee.

It's no wonder you're going under. Sheesh.
