What time do you call this then? Just because it's the weekend, you think you can lounge around, getting around to It Is What It Is in your own good time? Well, you can of course, you are under no obligation to read It Is What It Is at all, let alone at a particular time. You're only cheating yourself, but you've got every right to do that if you choose. It's a free country, to that extent at least. So what are you going to do with the rest of your Saturday? What are you going to do this evening? Watch television? Let's see what's on.
Let's look at 9pm. In the UK, on BBC1, it's a good time to watch television, as you've missed most of Strictly Come Dancing, a programme which is only watched by armadillos and broken robots. I've never seen it but apparently some famous people dance in an uninteresting way. It's very popular with armadillos and broken robots, apparently. The broken robots presumably like it because they are broken, but I've no idea what the armadillos see in it. But what if you're not in the UK?

In the USA at 9pm on NBC you have Trauma. The episode is called Bad Day At Work. Sounds grim, doesn't it? But I'm sure it doesn't compare to the real trauma you'd experience if you accidentally started watching Strictly Come Dancing. Speaking of accidentally, Trauma's about some paramedics, apparently. How do they dress in the USA? In the UK they wear sort of green boiler suits. I don't mean they they boil their greens in them. That would be a bit seventies, boiling all the greens. We are now sophisticated, and boiling them is just one option.
I apologise to all my Chinese fans but I don't know what's on CCTV-1 at 9pm - I have trouble navigating some Chinese websites, not being able to read Chinese. Over in India, DD1 has at 9pm Kab Kyon Kaise, a serial, which is apparently about crimes against women. Or it might be a documentary series. I couldn't tell, it was hard enough to find out what I did. Let us know, Indian It Is What It Is readers!
Russians, I don't need to tell you what's on Channel One at 9pm. Same thing as it's been every night since 1968, the news show called Время (Time). Tell me, Russian readers, is Время really the name of both a news programme on Channel One and also the name of a history channel? Or have I got it wrong? I don't read Russian either, and am dependent on the mercy of online translation.
I wonder what's on the other side...
that's all from me for now
see you around
