What's CKL Watching?
Fall 1999 TV

It's that time of year again...

The program grid below has been organized by day of the week, time (Pacific), and network, and color-coded to show you what I'll be watching, sampling, or avoiding. Uncolored programs are those which neither excite nor offend me to any significant degree. YMMV. If you'd care to sample a wider range of opinions, see The Parallax View at the bottom of this page.

In a hurry? Find out what's premiering this week (courtesy of Mr. Showbiz).

Monday ... Tuesday ... Wednesday ... Thursday ... Friday ... Saturday ... Sunday
Must See TV! Maybe...Maybe Not Whatever. Crap-O-Rama

NOTA BENE
Dates are subject to change. When in doubt, check your local listings.
And always remember Sturgeon's Law: "Ninety percent of everything is crap."
