Ah, how we miss the undergrad life: Waking up at the crack of noon, hitting the cafeteria with your friends, then maybe or maybe not going to class, depending on how much TV we had to catch up on. Well, it seems that up in the hallowed halls of Harvard, one professor is hoping to fool students into going to class by promising that they'll get to do nothing but watch TV. During a panel this weekend, sociology professor William J. Wilson announced that he'll be launching a class next semester that focuses solely on The Wire. That sounds all well and good, but if we were still in school, we'd hold out for the seminar on SpongeBob SquarePants. [NYP]
