We gave up on Housewives about midway through last season. Maybe not even that far. It just got - ridiculous.
And if we even bother with Family Guy it's only to fast forward to Stewie and Brian, since they're the only ones who make us laugh. Ditto for Roger on American Dad. Each show now takes up 5 minutes of our time, max.
Monday night, CSI Miami is on, and Joe just has to get his weekly fix of Horatio (his admitted man crush, but don't tell him I told you that). Since he now works on Monday evenings, that usually means he cuddles up with Horatio via TiVo on one of his days off. Sometimes, I get
Thursday, we used to hang out with Earl. Fridays, it was Monk. Both have been disappointing lately. Why the focus on Joy? And Monk. Monk's trying too hard. He's lost that "Monkness" about him that was so sweet and quirky. He's definitely more bitter now - sometimes he's just downright mean.
So, out of the necessity of Joe's new work schedule and the amount of suckage from our shows, we've consolidated all of our television watching to one evening - Wednesdays. The night Lost (aka "the only show worth watching") is on.
While Joe is taking the bear home, I give J.J. a bath and get him to bed, and we meet up in the family room between 7:00 and 7:30, with the baby monitor, just in case J.J. decides to wake up.
We'll usually knock out a show or two from the TiVo list, then start in on Lost once it has had some time to get rolling, catching up with real time before it's over. Then another show or two from our list, and we're out.
I'm wondering what will happen when we get tired of the shows we have left and our TiVo is filled up with Bob the Builder, Barney, and the Big Comfy Couch. I have a feeling I may need to stock up on Sudoku...
