DVR vs Real Time
Last night while watching previous episodes of LETTERMAN and CONAN, I came to realize that I hardly watch anything live..
Even Charger games. My friends and I started to delay watching the game until one hour after it started to avoid the MAXIPAD and ED DYSFUNCTION ads that ruin the "flow" (ahem, pun intended) of the game.
Everything else is DVR. In fact, I had to get another DVR at $7.00 more enough so I could split the line and DVR up to four shows at one time. Monday night is the toughest. BIG BANG THEORY, 2 1/2 Men, HOW I MET YOUR MAMA, Dancing with the Stars (Wife's show), Chuck (yeah, so what of it) and Heroes all populate that night. And I think 24 is headed there.
In the old days it must have been hell; and it was. I remember being a kid and watching that old ABC lineup (Happy Days--Lavern Shirley--Three's Company--Vegas) and wondering what my friends were talking about when they talked about other shows that were on against my shows...
So..what about you. If you aren't one of these 'high brow' bloggers (who all hate pop culture anything) and you watch TV..do you watch anything as its actually being aired?
