Calc last friday of month
Find the day of the week of the first day of the month (using Date::Calc, DateTime, localtime or whatever).
Find the number of days to add or subtract.
Days to first Monday:
$days_to_first_monday = ($dow + 7 - 1) % 7;
Days to previous Friday:
$days_to_last_friday = ($dow + 7 - 5) % 7 - 7;
In both case, $dow is expected to hold 1..7 for Mon..Sun or 0..6 for Sun..Sat
Use Date::Calc or DateTime to perform the math.
Non-existent; I don't have TV
Non-existent; my TV doesn't have/need a remote
Under my control; I watch alone
Under the control of whoever shouts loudest
Under the control of whoever gets it first
One of many, and the TV has a mind of its own
