I don't really watch much TV. I can't stand sound of it as background noise so it is never on in the middle of the day when I'm home alone. I think that is because my hearing is getting so bad. (Although I think I should leave it on for Daisy when we're gone.) Anyway, there are a couple of shows I really enjoy; The Office, Friday Night Lights, occasionally an episode of Oprah... so I set the TiVo to record them and then I pick and choose what I want to watch and when. It's the best. The greatest part about TiVo is that I can fast forward right through all of the commercials. I can keep the shows I want to see again or delete them from the title if it's a re-run or I'm just not interested. I can pause it to take the dogs out or rewind if I missed something. I've become so spoiled with TiVo, that I hate watching anything live anymore. Today, I caught up on my shows and enjoyed a little "down" time in front of the tube.
