Last week, I invited you to ask me questions to help jump-start my blog with some good topics. (Anyone else who has a question is welcome to ask it in the comments here or in the previous post.)
Question #9, from the Gal over at One Gal’s Musings:
What TV shows do you watch now?
Tim and I are actually not big TV watchers. We used to be – I can remember eating dinner in the living room while watching Friends reruns many times before we had kids. However, once we had Book Boy, Tim and I made a conscious decision that we weren’t going to watch “grown up” shows when he was up. If we really wanted to watch a show, we’d tape it (yes, we’re dinosaurs who don’t have a DVR) and watch it after the kid is in bed. It has worked really well for us. Our TV viewing was further reduced during the writers’ strike of a few years ago – we quit watching much because there was nothing much good to watch, and we just never got back in the habit.
However, the shows we do watch, we’re pretty loyal to. So, what are those shows?
Glee – our #1 show right now. Can’t wait until it starts up again on Tuesday!
Chuck – A fun mix of comedy and spy caper, we even let Book Boy watch this one when he’s on vacation.
Heroes – We’ve watched this since the beginning, but I find it harder and harder to follow, and it appears that it’s unlikely to be renewed for a fifth season.
Survivor – We’ve mostly watched this since the second season, though we missed a couple of later seasons. The current installment features past players, and so far has been pretty good.
The Office and 30 Rock – We watch these if we remember.
That’s about it, really. Sometimes we watch Fox’s animated Sunday evening shows as we fold laundry (Sunday is laundry day here) but I could take ’em or leave ’em.
So, what do you watch, readers? Are you watching more or less TV than in years past? Why?
