Truth is, since we have DirecTV, it's actually more like 157 but, still...I just got through programming the TiVo for the upcoming fall season last night and here's what we're looking at:
Monday - WWE Monday Night RAW, Heroes
Tuesday - House, Dirty Jobs
Wednesday - Kitchen Nightmares, Mythbusters
Thursday - Smallville, Survivor, The Office, 30 Rock
Friday - WWE Friday Night Smackdown!
Saturday - [Nothing]
Sunday - Curb Your Enthusiasm
I know that we'll be adding more stuff that premieres a few months down the road (The Amazing Race, 24, Battlestar Galactica, RENO 911!)...but, wow...I hadn't really realized how few shows we're actually watching these days. Which is just as well, since we can barely make time for what we do watch. Also, I noticed there's only one new fall show in the lineup...though I may end up giving Bionic Woman a look. The point is...I used to consider myself a real TV addict. So I'm surprised to see that the actual number of shows I watch isn't that great. Or is it? How many shows do you guys make a point of not missing? [Smashed TV pic courtesy of a genuine TV Junkie]
In sports, the only thing worse than being bad is being bad and boring. The Falcons are bad and boring. A season that was over before it ever even started is well on its way to becoming a full-blown fiasco. Does the NFL keep records for the number of no-shows?
In light of the heroics of Buford's own Mikey Henderson in the Georgia overtime win at 'Bama over the weekend, it's fitting...and necessary...and not at all braggy...to point out that the number-one-ranked Wolves have stormed out of the gates to a 5-0 start, outscoring their opposition to the tune of a cumulative 220-19.
If these things really do happen in threes, Shields and Yarnell should probably watch out for falling pianos.
Thinking about cleaning your gutters? Here's a tip: DON'T. Hire somebody. Man...Two days later, I'm still recovering from some ill-advised roof and ladder time. I knew it was a bad idea, too. As soon as my foot hit the first rung, I could almost hear Elmo and the kids screaming, "No, no, Mr. Noodle! Don't climb the ladder!" Roof work and chronic back trouble simply don't play well together.
Finally...This is the 100th post here at HYH. I'd like to send a big "Thank you" out to all of my loyal readers and commenters. You two know who you are.
