dammit Fox! I'm a nanny not an idol!

All day yesterday I was looking forward to the end of the day, not just because it was the last day before a four-day weekend, or because I knew that the office would probably close an hour or two early. No, I was looking forward to the end of the day because it was Wednesday, and Wednesday evenings means Nanny 911.

So imagine my disappointment when I tuned into FOX at 8:59 PM and discovered .... something that was not Nanny 911. Say what? It was some American Idol Christmas special. So instead of watching my beloved British nannies whip some American brats and their dumbass parents into shape, I composed the following letter.

Dear FOX executives (and when I say "dear," I don't really mean it),

I must say I was quite disappointed when, without warning, you pulled Nanny 911 in order to air the American Idol Christmas CrapFest. I have nothing against those darned American idols, but really, your reasoning was all off. This is Thanksgiving, not Christmas. Granted, I didn't watch the special, but I don't think they were singing songs about turkey and football. Also, that show was probably taped months ago, and I have enough trouble getting into Christmas music without knowing it is being recorded sometime around the Fourth of July. C'mon, people, I like Kelly Clarkson as much as the next person (okay, maybe a little bit more) but our American children don't need another pop star singing "standards!" They need manners! They need guidence! They need structure! They need the goddamn nannies!

Please don't do this to me again.
Best (Thanksgiving) Wishes,
