ABC is in an altruistic mood. They’re looking out for you, and the global warming crisis. For the week of September 21 they have proclaimed it “National Stay-at-Home Week.” This way, you don’t use gas and send us all into an environmental apocalypse.

Either way, it’s not a bad idea. You’ll save a few bucks on gas, and a little less CO2 in the atmosphere. Not that they’ll be guaranteed that you will watch Ugly Betty or Brothers & Sisters. And never mind that you may gain a few pounds in the process, because they’re encouraging all of us to sit at home on the couch. But it’s all for a good cause, right?
