    What he said, but I also got my electronic issue on the iPad a day or two earlier.

    +2/3, but different.

    I'm looking forward to Almost Human and SHIELD. I have zero interest in MJF, and it's actually one of the few shows I didn't set up a recording for (cause I give lots of things a shot).

    I watched an extended preview of Mom today, and liked it enough to add the SP.

    I'm also going to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Ironside, Hostages, Trophy Wife, Sean Saves the World and The Crazy Ones a shot...but I have VERY low expectations on these. We'll see. :)

    I added all the new shows that I could (two are still too far out for guide data) and pruned out the cancelled programs, and stuff that I'm not watching this year and I was left with 30.

    What are you watching?!? :) :eek::p

    eta: I do record all news and political shows--Bill Maher, Daily Show, Colbert, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell--on a separate machine to keep clutter on the main box to a minimum.

    The promos for comedies on fox look like skits making fun of really bad TV.

    Thanks for the heads-up about EW. I just picked up the Fall Preview issue of TV Guide.

    Is all the Fall Preview stuff for this issue online? I know TV Guide has a lot of fall preview stuff online. If so, I'll read online and save the newsstand fee. it IS the 21st Century after all :)

    I don't think on the website, but it is available digitally on tablets. You'd still need to pay the fee, though.

    I get the tablet one free with our print subscription.

    I get the tablet edition as part of my "Next Issue" subscription.

    $15/month. All the magazines you can read. :)

    sweet home, al
    it must be at least 15 years since i subscribed to ew or tv guide - didn't know they were still in print. :p
    i'm avoiding the previews and ads from here on out - the sneak peek is often enough to make me delete the sp before the show airs (brooklyn 99)...i'll try to give the rest a chance. ;) all set with sp's for what's available in the guide.

    I wouldn't read EW the whole rest of the year, so it's not worth $15 for me to read one issue. There's so much info online that I can get for free, that I have no need to purchase anything to tell me what shows to watch. And in fact, with my new Genie and 5 tuners, I am pretty much recording anything that has a premise that I might like. I'll watch the first episode and if I either like it or feel there is potential, I'll set the SP. Otherwise, gone.

    Understood.

    But "Next Issue" is all you can read of 100 different magazines for $15 a month. Since I was able to drop about 7 subscriptions that way, it's saving me money. :)

    I never watch sneaks or previews. I just wait for the pilot to air and go from there...

    I need reading material for... {TMI edit}. And I love EW. So I call it a win-win.:D

    I try to do the same. I record 99% of all sitcom pilots, and any drama that strikes a spark. I have more than enough tuners; it's time that's the challenge.

    Sitcoms I try to give at least two episodes to judge. Dramas I have zero tolerance for mistakes. The minute I don't like it, I delete the SP. I think my record is 3 minutes.:D

    I appreciate that sitcoms take some setup, so I do my best to watch the entire 30 minutes. It's really hard sometimes, when every cliche & trope is rolled out before the first commercial break.:mad:
