“Spaghetti Cat” Mystery Solved

spagetticat.JPGWhile it’s not exactly the Montauk Monster, FishbowlLA has the exclusive answer to the burning question regarding the kitten picture from a “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet” clip last week.

The story (an inexplicable cut to a cat eating spaghetti during an interview about binge drinking) was first raised when it was featured on E!’s The Soup on Friday. We’ll let FBLA’s Tina Dupuy provide the FOX spokesperson’s response, but let’s just say it wasn’t a mistake — it was a “bleep photo”…and there’s “more of those in the future.” Well, good.

Meanwhile, the “Spaghetti Cat” has taken off — you can order articles of clothing featuring the random image on Cafe Press.

Breaking News! Old People Watch TV

Earlier this week, FishbowlLA’s Tina Dupuy picked up on this Variety story about the rising median age of TV watchers as a whole. Her takeaway: “Honey, I wish you would turn that TV off — go outside and enjoy your mid-life crisis.”

One cable news related bit:

Among ad-supported cable nets, the news nets (along with older-skewing Hallmark Channel, Golf Channel and GSN’s daytime sked) sport the most gray, with Fox News Channel’s daytime and primetime skeds the absolute oldest, clocking in with a median age above 65.

What does it mean? Who knows. FNC is still the #1 cable news network in Total Viewers by far (likely skewing the average) and, once again, tops in the all-important A25-54 demo. And CNN’s median age is over 60 as well, while Countdown with Keith Olbermann, MSNBC’s best show in the A25-54 demo, has an average age of 59.
