    Why do they schedule my favorite shows at the same time so I have to "choose one"?

    Many episodes of certain shows are shown online. Just google the name of the show, type episodes online. I have found many this way.

    That used to drive me crazy. My DH changed us over to AT&T U Verse and we can watch one and tape three. Now I don't miss my shows.

    My DH is a channel switcher - drives me absolutely bonkers - I wish he would pick a show - ANY show - and leave the thing on from beginning to end!

    His switching usually causes a major loss of an important detail in the story or event - or I miss the setup of the story - he doesn't seem to have figured out that the mainstream networks run their commercials at the same time!

    My BF does this, and he watches shows I don't like. Solution ---- put TV in office for him, one in my sewing room for me, we share the living room one, but not for long, soon the living room is going to be my sewing room and the big screen is STAYING.

    OMG!!! Did I miss Greys Anatomy? Boy I hope the Teevoo got it! I tape all of them, and rarely watch anything in "real time", I can watch 3 or 4 nights worth of shows in a couple of hours. Speed through the commercials. LOL DH used to have a fit, now he is as bad as I am. Now Ican't wait to get home and see Greys Anatomy, hopefully.

    My husband I watch what we missed or what comes on too late for us to watch, the next night or so on the "On Demand" channels on our cable. It has been so much fun to watch them together at a time we both can enjoy it at.

    Love my DVR. Watch one, record two. We still miss things sometimes but you can search to see if it's on another night. Sometimes when the season begins they'll run it again on Fri or Sat.

    The action that annoys me is when they always take off my favourite show to broadcast a football game...

    That happens to us too. We usually watch one and then record the other one on our DVR.
