What's On Your TiVo?

A year and a half ago is when we got our TiVo, I wanted it mostly because a lot of our shows were on at 8:00 and we weren't able to watch them because Jordan was still up and he was taking up our time, those gosh darn kids. Now it's amazing how many more shows we have to watch, and we still don't have the time. Here's a list of some the shows we're hooked on.

Days of Our Lives - Yeah, this is my soap opera. I've watched it since I was a kid and I'm sorry I can't stop watching it. Even though I do TiVo it, there's many times that I skim through to the very end just to see what's happening. And don't tell Darric I told you, but he'll sit down and watch it with me and he gets right into it.

Nip/Tuck - This season just ended. Don't ask me why I like this show, maybe because it's just so out there. You never know what they're going to do next, or what they're going to say.

American Idol - I'm having a hard time admitting to this one, but yes I am an American Idol fan. I'm not sure why really. Every season I say I'm not going to watch that crap this year, but here I am again getting roped in. I will say I can't stand to watch the sucky auditions, but now that's it's getting to the good stuff when they're singing with actual music, it's too late now, we're sucked it for the entire season.

Dirty Jobs - Did you know this show is on ALL THE TIME? It is because I have 15 shows to watch and they just keep adding to list. Of coase the only reason I watch this show is because it's interesting to see what other people do for work, makes me appreciate my job and Mike Rowe, after all, isn’t entirely difficult to watch, especially if you imagine him disrobing after one of his DIRTY JOBS to wash off all that dirtiness. Gwrrrr!!

Then there's Jordan's shows which are a whole category themself. There's Blues Clues, Super Why, Curious George, Dora, Clifford, Wonder Pets, Backyardigans and the list goes on and on.

A great feature that TiVo has is that it trys to figure out what you like to watch and will just randomly record shows (religiously might I add) and this is how we get hooked onto new shows. One show we watched the other night is the new show 'Moment of Truth.' This is another one of those reality shows that could ruin someones life and they do, all for money. This show did get me thinking about how crazy people are. It's their own fault they put themselves up to it, but Why, may I ask Why.

So, now that the writer's strike is over maybe we can get some of our better shows back on. Tell me though, what shows are you currently hooked to? Come on pile up my comment box, it's looking lonely these days and making me feel lonely too.

Honestly, without writers, TV has stunk. But, we have our sports to watch~Bruins, Celtics. And yes, we watch Dirty Jobs waaaaay too much! I miss my Heroes! But, we've watched some cool shows on the History Channel about Dubai and all that crazy island-building they're doing out there (my husband is a civil engineer and thinks those shows are the cats meow!)

Hey, Kelli's Mom here......Boy, I watch way too much TV when it comes to listing my favorite shows. I also love Dirty Jobs, any baby shows on TLC ( gotta love those newborns) any medical show on TLC or Discovery Health. I told myself that I would not watch American Idol this season, but there I go, hooked on it again. Beats me how those judges judge, cause all the singers sound good to me! I also love Survivor ( another one I shouldn't get hooked on.) Don't ask my why, but I love LA Ink. I think that Kat Von D is so cool. ( this coming from a 61 yr old grandmother who possesses one tattoo of Tweety.)Hubby and I like Mythbusters, too. On the weekends, it is cartoons, cartoons, cartoons, as our grandson is here. Boy, they don't make cartoons the way they used Tom and Jerry and Loony Tunes. Can't forget that Roadrunner! I don't understand what he watches at all. That's my list!
