Ugh, don’t you hate how when you go to McDonald’s there’s no TV to watch? I know, riiiiight?! I have always said that the experience of eating at a McDonald’s was almost the best experience you could have eating anywhere ever, if only there was a close circuited loop of McDonald’s specific programming playing on a grease-smeared television. Well now there will be! From the LA Times:

McDonald’s customers will soon be able to have local school sports, movie previews and heartwarming human interest stories to go with their fries — McTV is here and in high definition.

In one of the most unusual twists in niche programming, the global fast-food chain is launching the McDonald’s Channel, a digital network of exclusive original content targeted at dine-in customers. The programming will be customized to specific communities around the individual restaurants, and will include local news and entertainment features, such as spotlights on upcoming films, albums and TV shows.

Wait a second, movie previews AND heartwarming human interest stories? Cancel my TimeWarner subscription, WE’RE LIVIN’ AT MCDONALD’S! I’m not sure that I would really call this an unusual twist in niche programming. If anything, it’s weird that McDonald’s hasn’t already done this? Like, I bet you that when this is a real thing and every McDonald’s features McTV (thumbs up on this name, boys) not a single person will be like, “What? This surprises me!” Everyone will just be like “Put everything in my body, all of it. Oh look, a heartwarming human interest story.” In what is an equally usual twist in BLOGGING, we have a list of some of the upcoming shows on McTV after the jump:

  • C.S.Fries
  • Happy Endings Meal
  • The Bernie Big Mac Show
  • How I Met Your McRib
  • It’s Always Milkshake In Apple Pieadelphia
  • Two And A Half Dollar Menu
  • The Good Hamburglar

I really hope that HBO changes their time-honored slogan to “It’s not McTV, it’s HBO.” That would be hilarious, just like these amazing made up show names that are so funny and clever and not lazy at all. Good work to me AND to the fine people at McDonald’s.
