OK - maybe that's not the best way to put it..BUT, do you DVR or TIVO? If you don't know what I am talking about, you are MISSING OUT! We have cable up here in the city , but we have a DVR receiver which allows us to record up to 2 channels at the same time. No longer do we sit in front of the TV at night having to watch commercials. All we do is record the shows we want to watch every week and we watch them when WE want to watch them. Believe it or not, we spend so much less time in front of the TV now than ever because we don't want to watch regular TV and have to sit through commercials! For example, we are HUGE 24 fans, but Sydney is at that age where she is aware of stuff on TV and we don't want her to watch that, so we just record it and watch it after we put her to bed. For Sydney, I record the shows on Noggin that I want her to watch. So no more excuses for bad TV... you are in charge of what you see now more than ever!
