After a short hiatus prompted by the laziness of our editor (ed. note: Sorry, dudes.) "That Ain't Right" returns!
This is where we scan Twitter for people who say "My Damn Channel" but are in no way referring to us! And through much scientific study (ed. note: There was NO scientific study.) we determined that the correct response to each tweet is "That Ain't Right!" Here we go:
@BeccaMathers , you are preaching to the choir. I was having a little trouble trying to fit the phrase “That Ain’t Right” into this because loving Lifetime is oh-so-very-right. Then it dawned on me, “Lifetime is MY damn channel”? Are you planning on taking Lifetime away from us all and depriving us of the sweet combination of Meredith Baxter Birney and reruns of “Unsolved Mysteries”. Take some other channel like Home and Garden or The CW. Not sharing Lifetime with the rest of us? That Ain’t Right!
@obeyMeBitchez , our hearts go out to you, it seems like you are living a nightmare scenario. Anyone who wakes up from a nap to hear Louie Anderson yelling “Top 6 reasons to eat a sandwich!” deserves a hug. To the people who changed @obeyMeBitchez , changing the channel to a show hosted by the son of satan himself, Louie Anderson?!?! That Ain’t Right!
That lil grl better done gone get enough of changing your damn channel! Grl changing your channel! That ain’t right! For real though lil grl, it sounds like you need some guidance. Changing @Caremel_Beautyy ‘s channel is not the answer to solving your problems. If you need some help, we here at MyDamnChannel are more then willing to listen. If you don’t speak out your problems they will grow inside and come out as hate, that simply Ain’t Right.
@lextasy I think you need a new choice of friends. We here at MyDamnChannel are more then willing to step up and apply to take over. Unlike your last friend we are tall and handsome, only sit where we are told and would never in a million years even think of changing your channel. We also are great listeners and make a Tiramisu that is out of this world. Keeping your old and disrespectful friends around? Does he even know what a Tiramisu is? I bet he can’t tell the difference between a Ramekin and a cupcake wrapper! That Ain’t Right!
WHAT!!! @FinesseYoNigga! You have found your own personal version of Airbud! Sure, he may not be able to shoot the game winning 3 pointer or score the game winning touchdown (See “Airbud 2: Golden Receiver”) but he can change a channel! You must find a way to hone his talents otherwise they will go to waste and That Ain’t Right!
That's all for this edition of "That Ain't Right"
! Will there be one more before the end of 2011? (ed. note: I promise nothing.

It's time for another edition of That Ain't Right, a semi-regular feature in which we acknowledge that there are people in the world who may not know that My Damn Channel is a proper noun and complain a LOT about what's happening on/to/with their TV.
To which the only reply is, "That Ain't Right":
That Ain’t Right, @KissMy_Tweetinq sounds like your father is on a bit of a power trip. Sure, the bible says to respect your parents but I’m sure he would make an exemption for someone who is at risk of having their damn channel changed. Mr. KissMy_Tweetinq, That Ain’t Right.
That Ain’t Right, @DaTFIn3sTKiNg and myself are kindred spirits.
We both hate it when people come nd change my damn channel like ine been watchin tv,
Does it look like ine been watchin TV?!?!
Get your facts straight ppl.
Yet another victim falls at the hands of the lethal combination of Rain and Comcast. That Ain’t Right Comcast, That Ain’t Right. @Barbranicole1 just wanted to watch her damn channel guide. When will this madness end!
Damn you rain, Damn you satellite and damn you comcast. That Ain’t Right.
That Ain’t Right, Imagine searching for buried treasure for years and years. You have lost your family, lost your friends and lost the will to think about anything else besides for the buried treasure.
Now imagine after all those years you finally find it. You open the treasure box, take out the gold, raise it triumphantly in the sky and then BAM! Someone changes the damn channel!
@_RealLongHair finally found an episode of True Life that he liked and you change the channel! That Ain’t Right. That Just Ain’t Right.
That's all for this edition of That Ain't Right!
Until next time, may nothing on this My Damn Channel
be as stressful as when someone else has your remote control, Twitterland.
We're reintroducing a semi-regular feature called "That Ain't Right." We find tweets containing the phrase "My Damn Channel" that have nothing at all to do with us. Amazingly enough, the correct reply to all of these tweets is "That Ain't Right." Try it for yourself. Weird, right?
Here are a few we rounded up this week:
Did someone change @_ambiie‘s damn channel WITHOUT her damn permission!?!?!
This is America, you can’t just change people’s channels without telling them. That Ain’t Right.
That Ain’t Right, @x_Brandi and @_ambiie_ need to get together
and form a support group for people who have had their channels changed. That Ain’t Right.
All these people changing other people’s channels? That Ain’t Right.
It is about time that someone standing up for themselves and protecting their damn channels.
@dridri113, continue to fight the good fight!
Ok @_LaKillah, maybe let's not use such strong language, there are C-H-I-L-D-R-E-N around.
That being said, you are the last victim in a recent outbreak of channel changing crime and That Ain’t Right.
That's all for this week's edition of That Ain't Right! If you'd like to submit a tweet to us, send it to us!

On August 2 we introduced the world to "Searching for 'My Damn Channel,'" a feature on our blog in which we enter "My Damn Channel" into a Twitter search and post tweets tweeted by tweeters who've probably never heard of us! They're pretty much all mad at something, and that ain't right!
Bullshit indeed, @Mr.Primetime24. That ain't right.
was NOT happy with DIRECTV:
That simply ain't right. I'm impressed she was able to remember her "please's" and "thank you's" in the midst of these wrongdoings.
Our next "my damn channel"er, @ExTREordinary_J
, also cares deeply about politeness:
That ain't right, @ExTREordinary_J. I don't even want to know who "she" is.
was more explicit about the source of his anger:
Words can't describe my sympathies @_ThePilot! Unless those words are "that ain't right!"
Twitter won't display older results.
That ain't right.
Today we introduce a new feature we'll call "Searching for 'My Damn Channel.'" Have you ever searched your own name on Google and come up with a bunch of results that have nothing at all to do with you? Yeah, it's like that. Our favorite thing is to search through Twitter for "My Damn Channel" (note that the phrase in quotation marks is the key) and see what amazing people are angry at their television sets and remote controls. It's mind-boggling how many people like to yell at their TV via Twitter.
Today we present @little_booPINK:
Lol, indeed, @llittle_booPINK, that ain't right.
And here's @JennDesi, who's a little angry at QVC:
Seriously, indeed, @JennDesi, that ain't right.
Oh, did we forget to mention that via significant and detailed analysis and study we have determined that the absolute correct answer and response to all of these tweets is "That ain't right?"
That ain't right, @sashieeee_!
Uh, no, @SimplyLexxis, that ain't right at all.
So, we'll post a few of these on a semi-regular basis from now on. If you see something that we should post, send it to your tired blog writer at Maria [at] MyDamnChannel [dot] com, who writes most of these posts in first-person plural on purpose even though there's only one of her. We think.
