For next time: get a digital antenna
This might not help you five minutes before the show's about to start, but it's still worth pointing out: buy yourself a digital antenna. You can pick one up for under $30, and depending on what direction your window's facing, it'll let you pick up free local channels like NBC and ABC -- which, if you're looking to watch award shows/daytime TV, is really all you need.
