We here at theWGUB love The Onion. We heart them..We heart them very much. In fact, we would go as far as saying that if there was a website out there that was better than us, the only site capable of holding that title would be the Onion. (Assuming we are just having a bad day, normally no one is better than us!)
Well tomorrow night , 01/21/11 (and every Friday until the end of time hopefully), on IFC (10pm PST) you will get to view the Onion News Network somewhere other than your computer for once. Your HDTV! There is no better way to end the week with a little bit of Onion humor.
The Onion News Network is the most popular 24-hour cable news network in America, delivering hard-hitting, up-to-the-minute reporting to more than 100 million households nationwide. The network boasts more attack satellites than any other news organization and no other channel has more secret surveillance cameras in homes, businesses, and high-level government offices. Onion News Network is truly the most powerful name in news.
The Onion News Network’s vast array of programming includes Today Now! for morning news to ease you softly into your day, Washington This Afternoon and the Cressbeckler Stance for astute political commentary, Star Fix for obsessive coverage of celebrity and entertainment events, Cross Examination with Shelby Cross for tracking the latest legal cases, and In The Know for no-holds-barred debate.
The Onion News Network has spawned more than 100 subsidiary news channels, five separate Onion Business Channels, the Onion Prison Network, and OnionAisle, a news channel played on department store electronics display models. Globally, Onion-branded channels reach 811 countries in 152 languages. The Onion News Network is one component of the larger Onion media empire which includes the Onion Broadcasting Channel (OBC) for general programming, Onion Pictures for major film releases, and the Onion News Bar & Grill with more than 2,000 restaurant locations nationwide.
