The Demon TV

I'm prolly more of a TV junkie than I'd like to admit. I thought today about what shows I'd miss if I didn't have cable. The list, in no particular order is: Property Ladder, Flip This House, Flip That House, Dirt, Veronica Mars, NCIS, Las Vegas, The Apprentice (no idea why), Girls Next Door, Real Housewives of Orange County, Dr. 90210, High Maintenance 90210, Dr. Who, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Family Jewels, Real Reno, a variety of shows on the History Channel, the Comedy Channel, Sci-Fi Channel and the Travel Channel. That would be a lot of TV except most of them are in reruns which I don't watch. Sometimes they are just going in the background while I'm doing other things.

I'd miss House.
I watch Heroes as well, but I can download that off their site.

Maybe you need to talk to Harlan.

"Television ... is now -- in the most McLuhanesque idiom -- merely a medium. A moving, talking, nonreacting adjunct to the life going on in the room wherein it stands."

I haven't watched that much TV since I got to college since my old roommate had control over the TV (it was his). Now that I've got my tuner for my computer though to use and the only cable connection in the room, I'll probably start recording some shows. And I've got to remember when house comes on. Been wanting to watch that show for a while.

I wish I could just buy the Sci Fi Channel (for battlestar galactica) and Comedy Central (for the daily show and colbert report). However, we never got our TV hooked up at our house, so we've just been buying passes for them on iTunes, which works pretty well!

I've never seen House. I love Steven Colbert. I think they killed BSG by moving it to Sunday night. Ugh. I need to get out more.

HAHAHAHA I freely admit that I suckle at the nipples of untold numbers of studio executives.
