I've Misplaced My Water Cooler

I'm back in NYC for the day, and I saw in the subway an ad for HBO's new series. I don't have HBO, but I could always get it if I wanted to watch the new show. Only problem is I don't know when it's on.

I'm oddly put off by the fact that the ad simply says that the new show premieres June 10 "following the Sopranos finale." There's no time. Is it really such a given that everyone watches the Sopranos? Because I don't. I know it's very good, but I've just never been that interested in it. And the Tonys are on tonight.

Sure, it's not that hard to find out what time the Sopranos ends if I want to watch John From Cincinnati, but why should I have to do research, HBO? I'm offended by the presumptuousness.
