NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -┬áKim Kardashian is marrying New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries this Saturday. Perhaps you’ve heard enough?

Well, if you are tired of hearing about Kim, or Snooki for that matter, on television, there is a device coming to rescue you.

Matt Richardson, creator of the Arduino┬ádevice called Enough Aldready, says after hooking it up, you just have to tell it who you don’t want to hear about.

“It monitors that closed captioning track, looking for keywords like ‘Palin’ or ‘Kardashian’ or maybe ‘Donald Trump‘ and, when it catches that, it mutes your TV for 30 seconds so that you don’t have to hear about that celebrity, at least for that 30 seconds,” Richardson told WCBS 880 reporter Alex Silverman.

Unfortunately, you can’t buy one yet, if you’re tech savvy, you can use his instructions to rig a device up on your own.

“It can take a little practice, but I think anyone can get the hang of it soon enough,” said Richardson.

Richardson has no plan to design a similar device for radio.
