What Does $47 and a Sandwich Get You These Days?


Hi. That shirt looks great on you. Do you come here often? Yeah, I’m here all the time. Actually, I own the place. My name’s Rick. Nice to meet you.

Welcome to the new Happy Nice Time People, where we enjoy watching TV and mocking the ever-living shit out of it. Don’t worry, we’re still a bunch of whiny socialist libtards so you’ll fit right in.

As I explained to Rebecca when she graciously allowed me to take over this site in exchange for great big piles of money, I plan to carry on Happy Nice Time People as a bitingly cruel news/humor site aimed at the TV industry. Don’t worry—we’ve kept all of the wonderful snark, dick jokes, and leftist browbeating you’ve come to expect from this site, only with a laser-like focus on that glimmering talking box all your furniture is pointed at.

Television is a collective social experience that allows people all across America to interact and connect with one other as if we all had a common set of friends. Fictional friends, sure, but so what? (And don’t give me any holier-than-thou “I don’t even own a TV” crap; we all know you watch Orange Is the New Black on your iPad.)

With the new Happy Nice Time People, now we’ve all got a place to gather together and engage in the world’s oldest non-naked pastime… mercilessly ridiculing our mutual friends behind their back.

I’m glad you’re here to join us.

    TV? I love the boob tube. Can you bring me stories about the delicious Prof. Brian Cox, the James Blunt of astrophysics?

    Hmmm. Looks…interesting. Definitely cohesive and possibly autonomous. I’ll stick around and read on. :)Will you also spotlight news shows? Even comedy news? Huh, huh, huh?

    • Thanks, IY! Wonkette does such a good job following Fox News shenanigans and the like that mostly I’ll just post a link sending people her way when they are talking TV news. If she and her team miss something, I’ll cover it here.
