Eli Manning Sent To Room With No TV

Illustration for article titled Eli Manning Sent To Room With No TV

So Fox affiliate WLUK TV-Green Bay has this convoluted plan to get under Eli Manning's skin this weekend, as you may have heard. Someone told station GM Jay Zollar that Manning is fond of Seinfeld, so Zollar is pulling the show from the station's schedule on Saturday. Remember when no one cared what Eli Manning watched? Wasn't that just, like, two weeks ago? Said Zollar:

"We heard that Eli Manning, one of his favorite shows is Seinfeld, and we know that laughter is good medicine, and we decided that we're not going to give that to him."

Little does Zollar know that Manning has several favorite TV shows. In order to really bother the Giants' quarterback, he's also going to have to cancel other Saturday programming:

• 11 a.m.: Yu-Gi-Oh! G/X

• Noon: The Nanny

• 8:30 p.m.: Movie, Bridge to Terabithia

• 11 p.m.: Mad TV

You can also vote on which show should replace Seinfeld on Saturday. An Emmitt Smith infomercial is one of the choices. Really.
