    I found an interesting bit of trivia today. This quote on older women is not actually from Andy Rooney. That is an "Urban Legend", and typically attributed to what Andy Rooney might have said! LOL. It was actually written by Frank Kaiser...

    I googlishly found something about TV Land when it picked up showing re-runs in an article called "Tv Land Tries Some Original Ideas" in Cable World on Oct 21, 2002

    While the demographics of 60 Minutes are nearly as old as its correspondents, Jones expects to attract any audience that will fit into the network's sweet spot of viewers 35 to 45. "We think it will fit perfectly with our audience."

    Wiki is Wikipedia, which is an online encyclopedia. GoodLife has quoted from it a time or two...

    YIKESSSS!!!! Are you really saying the demos on the show say viewers are over 60?! lmao....Thank goodness I only watch it occassionally! On the other hand (how many hands do I have now, anyway?!), I am just around the target market. You're right in it, Rob & GL....How often (if ever) do you watch it?

    And thanks for the explanation of 'wiki'. I think I'll go bookmark it!

    thegoodlife,

    For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for
    free," here's an update for you. Now 80% of women are against marriage,
    why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig, just to get
    a little sausage.

    I recall watching this episode on 60 mins. lmao and was happy to hear someone applaud older women.

    I didn't read into this commentary as he was looking for women 20 yrs his jr. He does start by saying 'women OVER 40'. I walked away hearing an older man saying 'hey, the young ones aren't all that they're cracked up to be'. I'm now wondering what the demographics of the show are......maybe he was sending a message to older men out there....

    Hey, Rob (wiki??), research whiz, who is this show's audience?

    I loved it too but the cynic in me took over after about 10 minutes.

    Just do the math: A 60+ -year old man who waxes eloquent over 40 year old women is STILL looking for a women 20+ years his junior . . . so do we REALLY want to give this man a gold star?


    Alas, you are cynical a bit GoodLife... Your favorite search resource "Wiki" holds your answers...

    Andy is 87 (Jan.14.1919) and shared his life with his wife Marguerite for 62 years until she died in 2004. He must feel a bit lost without his soulmate... I give him 2 thumbs up for having the strength to carry on, as it would be much easier just to go and join her.
