TV Tragic...

Ratings season starts again tomorrow, and I have to tell you that TiVo is back on my radar!!!

I'm excited to see "Desperate Housewives" and "Brothers and Sisters" back in their regular time slot, but "Eli Stone" has been shunted to a 10.30 time slot, and "Dirty Sexy Money" will be on at 11.30pm! I mean, it's bad enough that we're a season and a half behind for ER, but they put that on at or after midnight!!!

As a mum with young children, I can't be sitting up in the wee hours to follow the storylines! And what's more, the prime time slots are filled with tripe like The Biggest Loser, ergh *vomit*...

So, yeah, I'm going to have to budget myself a Mother's Day present of TiVo, I think...

Oh shattered about Eli Stone!! Been really enjoying it, but not enough to sit up until 11.30 at night and completely write myself off in the process!!

Yep, I am excited about a few shows coming back too. But unlike you, I really like Biggest Loser LOL, and just wrote a bit of a vent about how my DH accidently forgot to tape the first episode for me LOL!

Horses for courses huh, but I agree, being able to record the shows and watch them later is soooo great!

Kate, Eli Stone is only my most FAVOURITE series EVA! LOL, for obvious reason (it has George Michael in it!!!). So, Dave knows he has to buy me the series for Mother's Day/Birthday/Christmas, LOL... You can borrow it if you promise to treat it like gold, hahahaha!

Jen, rofl, well I watched the first ep. of The Biggest Loser (yeah, yeah, laugh...). I promised myself I wouldn't. I'm thoroughly appalled at the way those people are coached to lose the weight, it's so seriously putting these seriously obese participants at risk of major health issues (not least of all GALL BLADDER problems down the track)... But, ok, there really wasn't much else on, and I was breastfeeding Bryn and argh, it's like driving past a car accident, you don't WANT to look, but you're compelled to...

That is how I feel! i can't help but watch! I agree, who on earth could maintain that sort of diet and excersise routine for the rest of their life! They are bound to gain back, but I just can't help but enjoy watching it! Weird I know...
