HELP! I'M DROWNING IN NEW TV SHOWS!!

I don't know about you, but this September I made myself a solemn promise NOT to watch any more TV than I can possibly hold on two (2!) DVR's.  There isn't enough hours in the day for viewing EVERYTHING I'd like to try. 

After a full day of writing, and Facebooking, Tweeting and blogging, I'm ready to hang up my keyboard and vegg out in front of the boob tube.  Forget my soap opera --I've been faithfully watching for 30 years - I can't squeeze that one in anymore.  So I tape it, then scan through different storylines.  You know what they say about soaps, you only have to watch once a week, to know what's happening. Things do not move rapidly. My proof - the stars on the show don't have wardrobe changes but once a week, usually.  Which means that one week in human time = one day of soap time!


My die-hard favorites, I can't do without are:

Castle  - how could I not? He's a writer!

Dancing With the Stars - hasn't gotten old for me. I smile the entire time I'm watching

The Mentalist.  Love the premise of the show and the characters.  Cute star in Simon Baker.

Hawaii Five-O - love the remake, McGarrett and Dano solve crimes in landscapes to die for. Again cute star and co-star.

Modern Family - I'm in awe of the comedic writing!  I love to laugh out loud with this one.

Parenthood - Really grabbed me last season and I love that family, quirky as they are!

.

Justified - simply can't wait for the new season to begin. Gritty, gorgeous and compelling!







I have given up on some due to lack of time and creativity (sorry to the fans of these shows)


Grey's Anatomy
The Biggest Loser
Private Practice
Two and a Half Men ( I might give it another try.  Love the supporting cast, miss Charlie's character)
Desperate Housewives  (trying to hang on for the final season)

Trying New:

Terra Nova (Avatar, Land of the Lost and Jurassic Park all in one! I'm a Jason O'Mara fan since Life on Mars)
Unforgettable - Interesting premise
Up All Night -  the jury's still out on this one

So what about you?  What shows are you loyal to? What shows disappointed you this season and which new shows are you enjoying?

I don't have the time or patience for much television, but Castle is on my DVR list, as well as Justified. Can't abide DDWTS, but I'm a AAGT junkie. As for daytime - might as well not have a TV. There's nothing on I want to watch now that Oprah's gone.

Roz,
You probably get more writing done without watching TV. But we have Justified and Castle in common. I can't wait for the new season of Justified...it's been a long while.

Sometimes, I watch the news in the morning, to know what's happening in the world!

I still record on three VCRs, as I can get WAAAAYYYY behind on them and not run out of recording space like on a DVR. I am currently watching Mar 29/11 so am six months behind. Ack! For my night-time shows, I am loyal to NCIS, DWTS, Battle of the Blades, and whatever late-night show has comedians for guests. I watch every minute of NCIS and fast-forward to see "my favorites" on the other shows.

OH WOW!! 3 VCR's!!
That's amazing that you have that many shows taped. At least you never run out!! I can DVR up to 4 shows in the same hour and have about 80 hours of viewing. But it's Finding Time to watch them all!! As you know, since you're way behind!!
