1) House wasn't on.
2) The show was filmed where I used to teach, so I wanted to see if I recognized anyone. (Which turned out to be Fran Kaye, and nobody else.) (And I must say that the silver lining of me being dropped by UNL is the fact that since I was not teaching, there was absolutely no chance whatsoever that Mr. Lee would be in my class.)
3) I admit there was a trainwreck component to it, because I'm always curious to see how low the Board of Regents will go to prostitute the university. (See also: Pepsi, Tom Green, the football team, etc.)
I feel dirty now. The bad kind of dirty.
