A small degree of insomnia last night – so it was up and over to the sofa, where I presumed I could indulge in viewing some late-nite poker – High Stakes, Low Stakes, or T-Bone Stakes.

I was surprised to discover though that GSN, long a haven for poker broadcasting, has ABANDONED televised card-playing, in favour of run-of-the-mill game shows. At least on Sunday night, when it used to run for hours.

Had to surf around, and find some on a sports network.

Couldn’t rely on Game TV, the Canadian version of GSN either. Execs there are apparently smitten with the decades old Dan Akroyd/Eddie Murphy flick, “Trading Places” (not to be confused with home reno show “Trading Spaces” – although maybe that could be the plot basis for “Trading Places 2”…).

They were running that popular old film back-to-back, THREE times over, either intentionally, or due to a broken VCR that wouldn’t release the tape so as to allow inserting something else.

The things you learn, when you can’t sleep at night…

Chow for now!

Ya, with ya on that Mister! You would think the crap on late, late, late night tv would have helped put us to sleep?! Go figure!
