Fall Began Today ---- And the New TV Season Is Here!

Yeah! The new season of TV has started. I love television --- the sitcoms, the dramas, the reality shows. I'm a TV junkie really. I get sucked in very easily and enjoy it all.

Tonight I sat on the couch for three hours next to my hubby watching meaningless shows. One network (I think CBS) is even advertising this as Stay Home and Watch TV week and I'm all for it. I just realized, too, that during the three hours I didn't see a single political ad --- what a refreshing, wonderful evening --- and no news about the plight of those suffering from Ike --- that may sound insensitive, but come on I need a break.

Curious what held my attention for three hours. The silliness of Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, and Two and a Half Men followed by thirty minutes of Dancing with the Stars and then the drama of CSI Miami. Three hours of total mind numbing nothingness. I loved it. I will probably do the same thing tomorrow evening with more of the new season premiers of old favorites or new series. This is my favorite time of year.

The only problem is that our vcr went out and we are either going to have to buy a new one or upgrade to that tivo or whatever thingy so that we can record one station while watching another. I know that later on in the week we have favorites that come on opposite each other. Maybe tomorrow I'd better look into that.

And it wasn't until just now that I even remembered that Monday Night Football is on over on ESPN. Wow --- to forget about football. Mind numbing TV I say.

Must go the boob tube is calling. The addiction is strong.

Tivo. Absolutely. We have a dual tuner Tivo. If you hook it up properly, you can record two while watching a third. It is SO cool. It's no wonder I never get downstairs to paint.

Hey there! Here through lceel.

I totally forgot Big Bang Theory was on last night and missed it.

I LOVE Two and a Half Men...and CSI....and Dancing With The Stars...

Clearly, I need TIVO...or intervention.

Admitting you have an addiction is the first step. And if I had been home I would have been fixed in front of the tube also.
