Nope. In fact, my television is not even connected to the power outlet and hasn't been for months. Back when it was, I would watch Motorweek on PBS, Horsepower and MXC on Spike, Gardening by the yard on HG channel and any History or Discovery shows of interest. So, I watched television about 2-4 hours each week back then.

Nope, never! I do not watch any of the shows that everyone can't seem to miss, not my thing at all!

Plus I don't have a VCR or whatever it is to set!

We like a few shows like NCIS, CSI Vegas, Survivor, and we have recently started watching Desperate Housewives, and Grays Anatomy.

That reminds me, I should set the VCR for American Idol. Now I have a problem. I always unplug the TV's when I'm going to be gone that long in case of thunderstorms. What to do????

I only have one or two shows I watch when I am home. One is Grays Anatomy, the other is Las Vegas. I can't even remember to watch them most weeks, and if I miss them I seem to catch up during hiatus when they only show reruns! I don't even know how to record on my VCR lol!

As for everything else on TV, I could care less.

Big Idol fan here. I would hate to miss. The only other show is CSI. Most of the time I am busy catching up on chores and/or DH has something educational on.
I was addicted to the Monday night line-up when Raymond was on.

I rarely watch anything other than the news. When I am on a cruise I am on vacation and do not tape anything.

I don't really miss TV at all while on a cruise. (I'm so happy to see live entertainment instead). About the only things that I really enjoy on TV anymore, are MXC, NCIS, and Idol.

Oh, where do I start....Las Vegas, Numbers, CSI: Miami, L&O: SVU, Idol,
Desparate, Survivor, CSI: NY, Extreme Makeover, My name is Earl.

I have to clear off my DVR before I go on a cruise, just to hold all the shows I record while gone.
