As little time as I have at home these days, it seemed important for me not to get hung up on too many new shows this season. Ditching HBO helped, of course, but I'm also trying to avoid the network shows as much as I can. Even with a TiVo, it can be impossible to keep up.
Here's our current season pass list:
Monday - "Heroes"
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - "Pushing Daisies" (our one new show so far) and waiting for "Lost" to start
Thursday - "My Name is Earl," "The Office," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"
Friday - "The Ghost Whisperer" (which I really watch on Saturday or Sunday morning)
Saturday - nothing
Sunday - Hubby watches "Desperate Housewives"
And that's it. Sure, I'll watch "Dirty Jobs," "Mythbusters," or "The First 48" if I run across an episode while I'm surfing channels, but I don't have anything else set up to record regularly.
Is there anything in the new fall lineup that I should consider checking out? Are there any good shows out on DVD that I should rent and watch? Just because I'm trying to minimize my TV watching doesn't mean I want to miss out on something good.
