    I don't know how I did it last season. I'm already behind on so many shows and half the ones I watch haven't started yet. AND Supernatural starts tomorrow. Then I have that convention (shut up) this weekend so I won't be getting any watched then either. I think I need to drop some more. But I don't know what to drop, I really like everything I record! :eek:

    You should probably just skip Supernatural and catch up on the others.

    This is why I have an Elite with 4TB of space. Getting behind and then playing catch up is how I get through the summer season!

    Me too.

    I said to a co-worker last night DAMN these 2 hour reality competition shows are totally screwing with the actual TV I have sitting on my TiVo.

    By the time I get through 9 hours of The Voice, X-Factor and DWTS who has time for drama and comedies?

    We're already behind, too. Part of the problem is that by the time we get the kids in bed, we've only got an hour or so each night to watch stuff, but we record more than an hour a night that we like to watch together. And then there is the stuff that I record to watch on my own, which I watch after she goes to bed, and I've been falling asleep pretty early lately, so there's quite a backlog of those shows as well.

    I shall not even dignify that with a response.
    (well not a response other than this non response right here. hee)

    I haven't watched any of Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, Parks, Office, Fringe, Haven, Mentalist... I could go on. And that isn't even counting things that I haven't finished from summer like White Collar and Weeds! I haven't been able to even add a single new show like Revolution or Animal Practice or whatever else I was considering. I think I have to just skip all new series for now.

    Oh and I hate twitter jerks that like to ruin big moments. Now I know something about Sons that I DID NOT want to know. Ugh.

    That sounds like an advanced form of torture.

    Yeah I didn't make Xfactor again and at this rate there is no way I'll be watching Idol.
    Oh and I didn't even watch SYTYCD this season past the initial auditions. :(

    You could always drop sleep completely from your schedule. That'll only work for a while though. How about dropping work? :) Okay, maybe not. I too have your problem with too much to watch and not enough time.

    Before the fall tv season started this year, I had about 30 hours of programming. I'm already up over 50 hours and that doesn't even include the probably 200 hours on my two 'backup' Tivos. I still have a 4 part series called Guests of the Ayatollah about the Iranian hostage crisis that I haven't got to yet...I recorded it on January 1, 2007. :eek:

    Funny thing is, last year at this time I was mad if it was much later than 9:30 when I went to bed since I get up at 3:15am. I cannot tell you the last time I was in bed before 10 and most nights it's more like 11pm. So yeah, sleep is already severely compromised!

    I'm with you. I don't understand what happened. I was all caught up in late August. And now bam!

    THAT is the perfect example of life with a TiVo.
    I actually just deleted some things I had on there from 2008.

    So am I!

    I record Amazing Race and here it starts again with season 21. I just finished downloading the 1st episode. Its all on my 2 TB drive on my PC. I haven't even begun to watch season 17 yet. So, that.s 4 seasons I need to catch up on. The only plus side is that I had removed the commercials.

    Once "The Voice" goes into the actual competitions, I start watching JUST the actual singing, and FFing through virtually everything else. (I might watch a BIT of the 'twist' coverage this year, and sometimes a tiny bit of the mentoring, but virtually none..) So I watch a ~2 hour show in like 15-20 minutes and get the entertainment I wanted out of it.

    X-Factor and American idol, I watch everything BUT the competition faster than realtime on my other recorder.. so "get through" a 2 hour show in around an hour. (I know, I make it sound like a job.)

    Well, if I hadn't've had a S3 Tivo drive that died (drive + Tivo itself died), I think I'd have shows that old too.. Actually, I think I have some older than that on my S1..

    But I actually DO go back and watch things that old sometimes. I know I have at least most of S2 of Shark (yikes, 2007-2008 season) on my S1..
