Extra, Extra! The First Edition of The TV.com Times Is Hot Off the Presses

By TV.com Staff

Oct 05, 2013

While chatting about all the (fictional) disasters and big events that took place on television this past week, we wondered, "Dang, what would happen if television existed in the real world?" And then we thought about how crowded the news cycle would get with major stories developing four or five times a night between 8pm and 11pm. It would be pure insanity. So we figured hey, let's mock up a newspaper to see how ridiculous it might be. And so we present to you the first edition of The TV.com Times, with reports on some of this week's bigger TV storylines. Can you figure out which headlines are from which shows?


NOTE: There might be spoilers ahead! Telling you exactly which shows are covered would ruin the fun, but keep mind in that anything that aired in the last week is fair game.

    Very funny ! Better than many comedies available on air ! Can I get a wallpaper version for my desktop?

    click on the pic; then right-click on it, choose "view image" right click on it again; choose "save image as" then pick a spot to save it; open the saved image; right click again; pick "set as background image" & poof! there it is

    Thank you. I knew all that. What I mean was a wallpaper size (version) of 1280 x 800 so that it will fill up my desktop.

    I figure most people who're online know that stuff already, but I just didn't wanna make assumptions.

    Anyway, just for shits & giggles I took the original pic & resized it in my photshop to 1200x800 to check for distortion & it looked just fine, but since not everyone has photoshop, what people can do is resize it in Paint since everyone with windows has that.

    It's just faster to get it done yourself than waiting around for someone else to do it

    Cheers :)
