Ah yes, the bane of my existence. I watch a LOT of TV. More than any normal person should probably watch. For example, here are the shows that I usually don’t miss each week (or, I DVR them and watch them later).

CSI Miami
John and Kate plus 8
Big Brother 9 (x3 times per week)
Real Housewives of NY
The Office
Deadliest Catch

Now, those are not to mention the shows my wife watches that I usually end up ½ watching and ½ reading a book (like Desperate Housewives). Also, I didn’t put on the shows that I really like to watch but don’t have a DVR set for. Mythbusters, Modern Marvels, Dirty Jobs etc etc. The good thing with those shows is that I can pretty much always count on getting an episode of those in about anytime if I wanted.

So, by my count, I’m locked into something like 12 hours per week guaranteed. Ugg. I’ve been doing my best to weed it down to as few shows as possible, but it is so difficult. To make it worse, all of my favorite shows are starting to air new episodes.

So, I’ve decided that I am going to not take on ANY shows other than the ones mentioned above. In fact, I am fairly certain that Survivor and Big Brother may not make the cut much longer. With all of the other things that I want to have going on this summer, I’ve got far too many better things to do than to watch TV all day long. This one is going to be tough, so feel free to bonk me upside the head if you see me rushing through things to get home to catch the latest immunity challenge on Survivor.
