57 channels (and nothin' on)

The Bruce Springsteen song. So true. I have no clue how many TV channels we have. But they are many. But when ever I have some time over and decide to tune in, it's usually nothing on. Amazing. 100+ channels and nothing to watch.

The husband has solved that problem. We have a TiVo and use Sage on our media computer. I use Rick Kushman's advice and set the recorders to work for me. Hepp! Every time I want to watch there is something to turn on and I can fast forward through the commercials.

But it's when I turn on the TiVo or Sage that I realize how little time I, the normal media freak (pre-toddlers and pre-WAH), have to watch TV right now. I'm 5 episodes behind DHW, 8 episodes after Studio 60, I'm apparently recording Nip/Tuck and a couple of other shows, but haven't seen any episodes this season. This means I have about, what, a week of nonstop TV watching to catch up??

Maybe I should just go back to 57 channels and nothing on, at least it's not as stressful...

Less stressful is right...Maybe just use the big national channels since they have the best shows anyway...
