If so, I have some great news.

According to Mental Floss, the kind folks at How To Watch are in search of one brave soul who’s willing to take on the burden of watching 100 hours worth of television over the course of October in exchange for a cool $2,000.

Here’s the job description:

As the website’s professional binge-watcher, you will be responsible for judging the quality of seven major streaming platforms—including DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Philo, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV—via subscriptions courtesy of You must watch roughly 14 hours of programming from each service, and everything you tune in to needs to be live.

In the immortal words of Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland: Ohhhhhhhh… hello.

If you’re interested, you can fill out an application any time before October 4.
