Thanks to Lauren for this:
I wasn’t sure if you got this already but there is a greeting card designed
by Jason Behr in support of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Fund on the
Yahoo! Greetings website. It is really cute.
Thanks to gussywussy55 for this :)
It was not very complimentary, but in the November 18 th issue , Matt
Roush states in an article on FELICITY,” Felicity ought to be a keeper,
especially when you consider the creative decline of WB’s tiresomely
self-aware DAWSON’S CREEK, and the stridently campy POPULAR and even
ROSWELL, once a favorite of mine but now diminished into a ponderous
junior-league X-FILES with too much plot and not enough wit”.
Thanks to Learn_to_Swim for this :)
I posted this on the boards and thought you all would be interested
that I heard somewhere a while back that Dave Grohl (FF frontman/guitarist
and ex-Nirvana drummer) said that “Foo Fighters” was a government term for
UFOs but I wasn’t entirely sure if I remembered that right. I did some
digging and found this:
B. What exactly are “Foo Fighters”?
Near the end of WWII, the U.S. Air Force patrolling German airspace
encountered highly maneuverable balls of light in the area between Hagenau
in Alsace-Lorraine and Neustadt an der Weinstrasse in the Rhine
Valley. These unidentified flying objects came to be referred to as “Foo
Fighters”, or “Kraut Balls” by those who believed the objects were a
secret German weapon.
From a Foo Fighters fan site FAQ
I don’t think it was entirely coincidental that the Foo Fighters wound up
on the soundtrack of Wipeout.

With meters, stations that appeal to younger viewers generally see a spike in their ratings, Greenwood says. TV watchers who were too lazy or indifferent to pick up a pencil and fill out the paper diaries finally are heard.
That means the local UPN, Fox and WB affiliates are beside themselves, since the youth-targeted fare they specialize in was probably getting stiffed by those diligent, older diary-keepers.
“We’ve seen dramatic increases on WB and UPN,” Greenwood says. Like the 1,500 percent increase in ratings for KWBQ’s 11 p.m. showing of “Married With Children.” And the 220 percent increase in ratings for the WB series “Roswell.”
