What's on your Tivo

Hey all- So last night I didn't do my Sunday question. Instead we will have a Monday Question.

 

What is on your Tivo (or DVR. Whatever. They are all Tivo to me)?

 

We have two tivos. I know. We are pathetic. But it truly is needed during football season. The tv in the family room is dominated by the kids. Our tivo is full with Backyardigans, Yo Gabba Gabba, and Curious George. I also saw Miss Universe 2008 recorded last night (yes! Love pageants). I may have a SO You Think You Can Dance out here as well. For the most part this Tivo is the kids. Oh we also have the recording of Paul on Sacramento and Company promoting lasiks (it was a good way to get a discount) and me and the kids on the local news. Can't part with those. Good stuff. Oh and my personal favorite- the last ten minutes of a Regis and Kelly where Baby Bash performs "Cyclone' because I am in love with the old lady who comes up and dances at the end. Trudy from Luigi's Dance. I swear if that is not on you tube then I need to get it on there. Its awesome.

 

In our room Family Guy has the biggest showing. We watch it at bedtime and it puts us down at night because we have seen every episode so many times we can close our eyes and watch. Yes, we are pathetic. I also have Dirty Jobs, Ice Road Truckers,and Tougher in Alaska on there alot this time of year. I am a Discovery Channel/National Geographic/ History Channel reality show junkie. I love those shows. My favorite is the logger show but alas the season is done. I also have a vintage collection of 30 Days. I recorded them last year, have yet to watch them, and refuse to let Paul delete them. Its important to let them season before watching. Does anyone else do that? Record a show, never watch it, and then refuse to delete it? I also have some Office reruns and Paul likes the Flip That House show. I think its depressing when we have no house to flip.  A recent addition is the cartoon Home Movies. We used to watch it years ago and it just came back on Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network. Paul and I love it. The Coach character cracks us up. If you like adult cartoons then check it out.  We also have a variety of movies we got off pay per view. I think Superbad, Little Miss Sunshine, and Hairspray might be on there. We don't get to the movies much.   Paul will watch lots of movies on the computer but for me, this is the only way I will ever see one. Well that's my tivos. I'd love to hear what's on yours. I feel its a great way to peer into one's soul.

I don't think this will say much for my soul, but I have season passes to Y&R, Bold and the Beautiful, Survivor (not right now, but already set up for next time!), House, American Idol, Deadliest Catch, Oprah but I don't always choose to stay on that channel...Mike records some dea/swat team/cops type shows, and a few episodes of Big World, Sesame Street, and Yo Gabba are saved just in case.

Thank you for 'fessing up to the pageant affinity...me too!

On the adult tip, we're hooked on Rescue Me, Entourage, Flip this House, No Reservations, Mad Men, Diners,Drive Ins and Dives, Rock of Love, The Soup...wow, I guess we do like a lot of TV!

The kids (now 6) like Backyardigans (still!), The Mr. Men Show, Curious George (still!), Zoobomafoo, and I keep trying to get them to watch Little Einsteins, which I love!

Great blog...I'll be back!

Okay lets see... I like you are a junkie for those Discovery shows!! I have Deadliest Catch, Ax Men, Dirty Jobs, Dog the Bounty Hunter which by the way comes back to T.V. on Wednesday!! I also have Diners, Drive-in's, and Dives, and Down Home with the Neeley's. I have all of the Sopranos from the last season saved, which I'm sure I could delete because we have the DVD's but I won't I'm sentimental on the Sopranos, sometimes I watch the last scene over and over again and still sit in utter shock when the screen goes black.. I know.. I have issues, what else is new?? Any hooters I also have the Family Guy and I used to have Rob & Big on there too. Now Cilly has her own shows that she Tivo's like Hannah Montana and Zoey 101, and Anthony likes to record every sporting event known to man.. which I don't mind cause I love sports too... I can guarentee that in August I will be recording Olympic events.

Hi Sharlene, that's cool that you're such a big fan of Dirty Jobs that you tivo it! I think you're going to like the news I'm about to give you since you said you're a Discovery Channel junkie...

This year's Shark Week is coming up very soon! There are going to be a bunch of new programs including a Dirty Jobs special about Mike Rowe's quest for the Greenland Shark. It airs on Tuesday, July 29th, at 9PM. You can check out the line-up and more at the website:
