I'm not a huge TV fan. I think my ex-husband ruined me for television. He was General Manager of a TV station, so our world revolved around it. We had one in every room, including the bathroom, and they were almost always on if he was home (except during dinner). Of course he had to watch his own newscasters, his commercials (his clients), and all the competition. He used a remote, like no one I have ever seen! Television was like "the other woman" in our marriage. After our divorce, I didn't watch TV for 4 years. Then Princess Diana died, and I had cable hooked up so I could watch the coverage.
Right now, I am watching more than usual (about 10 hrs a week). Except for Election Day and the Inaugaration, my TV never goes on until about 8 PM. Here is my schedule:
True Beauty (sad but true)
Lie to Me (I love this new show!)
Top Chef (or Project Runway off season)
(rarely) Lipstick Jungle
none...it is date night
This list is rather pathetic for two people with Masters degrees, but, the purpose is entertainment and distraction, right? Occasionally, we watch Rachel Maddow on MSNBC, or something on the Food or Travel Channel. Once in a while we watch a movie.
I have never gotten hooked on Survivor, Dancing With the Stars or Lost. I will admit to an episode of The Housewives of both OC and NY, but can't do it on a weekly basis.
I absolutely love 24, but must watch them recorded without commercials, usually several episodes at a time in marathon fashion, because I cannot wait a week to see what will happen.
I still miss Tony Soprano!
