We're changing internet/phone providers on Wednesday. We're getting cable! And as part of the deal, we're going to have one month of free TV (60+ channels).
I need your advice.
We have not had any TV service in the 4.5 years I've been here. I do my limited TV viewing courtesy of the internet and HuluPlus. That means that I see everything AFTER it is broadcast (sometimes there's up to a week delay in posting to the internet).
Here are some shows I know I'll watch:
Morning Joe - MSNBC. I'm a news junkie, I bet this is the channel I watch most.
Downton Abbey - PBS. Season 3 starts Jan. 6, so I'll get to watch a few episodes.
Parenthood - NBC.
Bones - Fox.
The View - ABC. There's nothing like a group of women talking over each other to make me feel better about my quiet living room.
The Boy and I will watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report - we usually watch episodes on HuluPlus the day after airing.
What shows should I rot my brain with in the 31 Days of Mind-Numbing Entertainment?
We won't have any pay channels, so Homeland is out (I've read that it's good).
I'm not interested in watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette show - there's something wrong about choosing your mate by fooling around with a couple of dozen cuties.
I might even give Honey Boo Boo a look-see...and I'm grateful that Jersey Shore is cancelled (it IS over, isn't it?); I've never had any desire to watch Snooki and her like getting stupid drunk.
I promise to post about every program that is suggested. I'll even write a review to prove that I watched.
While I'm watching, I'll be comparing TV viewing to the advantages of watching shows online (and there ARE advantages).
Come on, help me become the ultimate couch potato! I've got a few brain cells ready to die in this endeavor.
What's your TV guilty pleasure?
