Anyone watching Friday 1/22/10 telethon for Haiti

If you plan to watch TV on Friday evening on 1/22/10 between 8-10pm or later more than likely your favorite show that night will been postponed? It all being pushed aside for a hisotric telethon for Haiti, raising money for the recent earthquake. It's being produced and hosted by George Clooney (also produced the 9/11 telethon)and MTV/CBS and shown worldwide in dozens of countries for estimated 500 million people. Any reactions?

Well done George Clooney and other involved in creating this special. Better imo than the 'Katrina' (Kayne West ruined it imo in sept 2005)with his anti Pres GW Bush comments)Tsumani and Sept 11' specials.:tup:

Great job kid(R68) that yourself and your school did for helping Haiti.

Just like the few weeks after 9/11 and the tsumani, sadly it takes a disater like an earthquake in Haiti to bring this world closely together and at least for a short moment realize we are all brothers and sisters.:cry::P
