I love television and DVR has made watching it a lot easier (more fun and commercial-free.) But between the writer’s strike last year and lack of summer programming, I’ve taken on more shows than my DVR and my TV-watching schedule can handle. And now that the really good shows, like LOST, are back, it’s time to bid adieu to my “filler shows.”
Let me know what shows should receive a rose tonight and what can be sent packing. I’ve already eliminated Best Week Ever, so it’s time to do some mid-winter cleaning.
- Daily Show (still a Colbert Report addict!)
- My Name is Earl
- Grey’s Anatomy
- Samantha Who?
- Real Housewives of Orange County (the ladies are getting on my nerves)
- Say Yes to the Dress
- Ace of Cakes
- Iron Chef America
Reader note: Wow. I was completely blown away at the response to Tuesday’s crying post. I agree with many of the comments, specifically that it doesn’t make you weak and of course, if you can wait to cry in private, that’s preferred. But sometimes when the urge comes, you can’t stop it. If I cry in front of people, I end up crying more because I’m mad that I’m crying and can’t stop myself. It’s a weird triangle of emotion.
In response to those who feel crying at work does make you weak, I see your point, to a certain extent. I hope that we can all agree that crying in private or with your closest friends is the best way to do it, if that’s an option :)
And welcome to all the new commenters! It was great to hear from you.
