These shows will constitute the majority of my taping this season:
WRESTLING: WWE Raw and Smackdown; TNA iMPACT (if I like the spoilers) and ECW on Global.
SPORTS: Any major curling tournament (the Briar, the Scott tournament, and the Worlds), and Hockey Night In Canada. I'm a transplanted Leafs fan, so I don't get to see them as often as I could if I lived in Ontario...so any Leafs game I can get on my cable service is very much on my list.
COMEDY: The Office, Mad TV, and MXC, which I'm still very much addicted to.
DRAMA: Doc (reruns on Showcase here), CSI (the original series), and Standoff.
FOR THE GIRLFRIEND: 7th Heaven, Rachael Ray.
TECH STUFF: Dotto Tech (he's a dork, but it's a good show), Electric Playground, Reviews On The Run, and X-Play (should I decide to get G4TechTV on digital cable. Jury's still out on that one)
That's pretty much it. Lord knows I'll probably forget half the shows I record, much like half the fantasy leagues I subscribe to...but I put in a valiant effort for the first while before going down in a blaze of glory.
Is there a pool to predict what shows get cancelled first?

*=New shows getting a trial run. If it doesnít have an asterisk, Iím fairly certain Iím gonna dig it. **=Lost gets ONE EPISODE to prove itís not going to be stupid and lame this season. ***=Iím only going to start watching Earl if I get the DVDs and catch up on the first season. Iíve caught an episode here and there and Iíve LOVED it so far.

My wife also has various knitting shows on their as well as a wishlist thing for Tom Baker. In addition to that, it seems to record a lot of various Law & Order. Also, much to my amusement, it records the Godfather every time it comes on.
Originally posted by WhitebaconI think my TiVo died last night, at about the worst possible time.
It did, HD failure. Only a year old. It's either buy a new HD, buy a new box, or call TiVo, and see if they'll take pity on me. This is the second Tivo that I've purchased inside of eighteen months that has crapped out on me.
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.
We're about three weeks out...time to bring this one back again. I just typed this all out for my LJ, so why not post it here?
MONDAY 8:00 - "Chuck" (NBC) 8:00 - "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS) 9:00 - "Heroes" (NBC) 10:00 - "Journeyman" (NBC)
TUESDAY 8:00 - "Bones" (FOX) 9:00 - "House" (FOX) 9:00 - "Reaper" (CW) I'll be recording the first couple, but I'm wary. 10:00 - "Cane" (CBS) Just gonna check out the pilot.
WEDNESDAY 8:00 - "Pushing Daisies" (ABC) 9:00 - "Bionic Woman" (NBC) The pilot was pretty damn good. 10:00 - "Life" (NBC)
THURSDAY 8:00 - "Smallville" (CW) 9:00 - "The Office" (NBC) 9:00 - "Supernatural" (CW) 9:00 - "CSI" (CBS) This one is the odd man out on the DVR. I'm going to have to torrent it to continue watching it. I'm close to dropping it, actually, but it's an old standby.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY Nothing! Nada! Zip! Wala!
SUNDAY 8:00 - "Viva Laughlin!" (CBS) Again, just checking out the pilot. It looks awful. The original British series ("Blackpool!") is awesome, though. 9:00 - "Family Guy" (FOX) 9:00 - "Desperate Housewives" (ABC) I'm not at all interested, but my wife wants to check it out for Nathan Fillion.
DROPPED "Lost" (I feel five pounds lighter!)
These are just the shows that have fall premiere dates. I will of course be watching "Heroes: Origins", "24" (PLEASE DON'T SUCK AGAIN KTHXBYE!), "Battlestar Galactica", and "Jericho" whenever the hell they start up.
The Closer (Summer Season Finale was last night) L&O: SVU RAW Smackdown The Daily Show The Office 30 Rock Streetball: And1 Mixtape Tour (may or may not actually be on this year) Chappelle Show (reruns) Family Guy (midnight showings on [AS]) *I also cruise The Documentary Channel, A&E, and The History Channel every week for cool documentaries
Mrs. Freeze's Shows:
Monk Psych *About a dozen Food Network & HGTV shows
Any year before this, I wouldn't have thought twice. But this year...I just don't know. The main event is totally uninteresting to me, but...it's WrestleMania. Something awesome WILL happen, and I WILL feel like shit if I miss it. I'm undecided.
