Sick Day Television...

As a kid home from school you could always count on reruns of certain shows to fill your daytime viewing while Mom was in the other room watching her 'stories'.

You would always scream "ONE DOLLAR" at the TV during Price is Right. You'd enjoy the back to back of Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie. But then came the good stuff. Silver Spoons, Facts of Life, Diff'rent Strokes, and Who's The Boss.

Well, Sony Television has decided to make those memories real again! They are taking a list of their programs and chopping them up into little bits and putting them on the web for our viewing pleasure!

The Hollywood Reporter states: "We looked at our library and asked how we could fit this content into where the world is going in terms of watching entertainment on the Web," Sony Pictures Television president Steve Mosko said. "We thought this was the way to apply that logic of YouTube viewing to scripted drama that is fun and interesting."
Besides "Hooker" and "Starsky," more than 300 minisodes already have been produced from such shows as "Charlie's Angels," "Diff'rent Strokes," "The Facts of Life," "What's Happening," "Whose the Boss," "The Partridge Family," "Silver Spoons," "Sheena," "V.I.P.," "Police Woman," "Dilbert," "Ricki Lake" and "Fantasy Island."

Will you watch these shows online?
