Adam's Fall TV Schedule

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 16th 2006 8:01AM

everybody hates chrisEver since getting a Tivo a little over a year ago, I no longer watch TV shows when they actually air. When I'm not catching up with what's on my recorder, I'm either reading, listening to podcasts, or pounding out a blog post about what I'm watching on television. The big deletion from my Tivo Season Pass this year is House. I still admire the show, but for me the magic is gone. The season opener sat on my Tivo for quite a few days, unwatched. When I finally sat down to view it I realized, about fifteen minutes into it, that I had completely lost interest in it. I didn't even finish the episode, and took it off my Tivo for good. Perhaps my attitude will change in the coming weeks, but who knows? Anyway, some of these shows are winding down their current seasons, some have yet to air. All times are Central because I live in Minnesota.

Daily (or most weekdays at least):

4:30 p.m.

Jeopardy! (syndicated): Still the best game show on television.

6 and 6:30 p.m.

The Simpsons (syndicated): Yeah, they butcher these episodes horribly to squeeze in more commercials, but it's still better than no Simpsons at all.

7:00 p.m.

Countdown with Keith Olbermann: The perfect show to Tivo, as I can watch what interests me and skip over the celebrity news I care nothing about. And my choice of Countdown over other news programs has nothing to do with my personal politics, I just happen to find Olbermann entertaining. Many, many moons ago I used to enjoy The O'Reilly Factor, until Billy's swollen ego got to be a bit too much for me.

10 :00 p.m.

11:15 p.m.

Harvey Birdman (New episodes! Woo? Yes, woo!)

11:30 p.m.

Tom Goes to the Mayor

Frisky Dingo (when it takes over this slot in October, assuming it's good)

Criss Angel Mindfreak also airs at this time, at least til the end of the month, so I'll record the late evening rerun.

6:30 p.m.

Ebert and Roeper (syndicated)

Dead shows I'm recording either because I enjoy them and/or because I'm saving the episodes to DVD:

Cartoon Planet

Stroker and Hoop


Shows I record on rare occasion when they cover something that interests me:



Inside the Actors Studio

Shows I hardly ever record because they just don't turn me on, but for some reason once in awhile I get the itch to watch them so I'll record an episode or two:


12 Oz. Mouse

Shows I'll record when and if they ever return:

Moral Orel

Wonder Showzen

Dog Bites Man

Reno 911!


SpongeBob Squarepants
