If one night a week we looked to ourselves for entertainment. If on that night we made our own music, tafd our own stories, cracked our own jokes and quietly read our newspapers and figured our own reactions to tthe day's news instead of having it analyzed for us by "experts." It wouldn't be as easy as turning a dial. But 11 ought to be interesting.
