My DVR addiction

Oh man, I knew I should never get a DVR, but I did. And yes, I am addicted! I absolutely love that I can record whatever I want, whenever I want. And don't get me started on fast forwarding... it is pure bliss!! I don't think I have watched any commercials at all since getting the DVR 2 months ago. I wonder what marketing companies are going to do to combat the fast forwarding of all commercials. Will this effect how new products are introduced?? Ok, too deep of thoughts for me right now. My other favorite feature is pausing live TV so you can take a phone call, visit the ladies room, get a drink of water, or answer one of your children's questions. So, what do I record on a frequent basis to watch?
  • HBO TruBlood
  • MTV The Island (but that is over now)
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8
  • Dr. 90210
  • Oprah
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • ER
Yes, I realize, I spend entirely too much time watching TV. The first step to healing is admitting the problem, right? Do you DVR? If so, what shows do you DVR?

We dont have a DVR...but if I did I would DVR 48 Hours Mystery and 20/20. Dumb I know but I like those kinda shows. I hardly watch tv, the internet is my addiction...

I don't have cable to watch TV, so I definitely don't have a TVR. If I did I'd DVR Top Chef, some HGTV shows and a good news program like Nightline. We also are working our way through Heros from Netflix, so I'd record that too. Sometimes I miss tv, but I have no self-control. If I had cable I'd probably have to put my kids back in school!

I don't have a DVR and it's a good thing. I'd DVR America's Next Top Model, Dancing with the Stars, Boston Legal, and 2 1/2 Men. Sick I know. Instead I just sit on-line and rot my corneas that way.
