    Of those you listed, it looks like you never watched any episodes of The Firm or Ringer. They're both now canceled. So those seem like an easy place to start.

    Of the shows you listed, the only ones I watch are Once, Strike Back, and 2.5 Men. I'd say dump all the others, but I really know nothing about them.

    No thank you. One, I do NOT watch live TV. Up until I retired last February I would be in bed no later than 7 PM, as I would get up at 2:30 AM to get ready for work. If it wasn't for Tivo or Apple TV, I would never watch TV. Now that I'm retired I have time to watch more TV, and debating getting another Tivo to resolve conflicts.

    Howie, I really liked (guilty pleasure) Ringer. If I could go back, I would record and save them all on DVD. In my opinion, check you mind at the door and enjoy the ride. It wasn't the only ting on your list that I watch, but I just wanted to say... :)

    +1. I really liked Ringer and was sorry it didn't come back. But I think they did a good job wrapping up the season.

    We were totally caught up with our backlog by Sunday afternoon last weekend. Then we had the new Sunday shows. Plus my wife left for a conference on Wednesday and won't be back will Saturday, so we are behind again.

    I will be up-to-date on the shows I watch without my wife, which will only leave the stuff we watch together.

    The only thing I am behind on at all was Breaking Bad. I just started watching a few weeks ago and am only up to episode 8. I set it aside to start/finish the first season of Homeland before the second season started.

    Usually, I watch new shows the night they air. I watched Monday's Revolution yesterday evening. I've also got several otherwise decent shows that will probably vanish before I can watch them. It will be awhile before I retire, but it's quite possible that getting to watch my TV shows will be my reason when I do. :p

    For the moment, I am having a space issue. We are making sure we are keeping up on the returning shows and when we can catching up on The Voice. But, we are not watching most of the new shows. The only new one we started watching was Revolution. Otherwise, we wait to see if they are going to get canned or not. We just recently started watching Grimm, but we are very glad we didn't start watching it right away, if it had been cancelled we'd have been annoyed!

    I may go through and delete all the episodes of Pawn Stars that are on my TiVo!

    I still haven't watched an episode of Dexter season 6 and season 7 just started. I really like that show. I don't know how I've let season 6 just sit there so long.

    My DVR has filled up as well with shows. I'm pretty sure my DVR was empty within the last 2 months. (I deleted Dexter off my DVR a couple months ago and just downloaded the shows off usenet.)

    I only have a cable DVR so I can only hold about 20 hours of HD programming. If I got as behind as some of you are I would never, ever catch up. I figure I watch about 3 to 4 hours worth of TV a night (which only takes 2 or 3 hours when cutting commercials) and then only 5 or 6 days of the week.

    I am fairly strict about what I record. Right now I am at the point where I can't afford to add any more new shows or else I would never catch up.

    In fact, I would almost say that I appreciate the discipline that the smaller capacity DVR forces upon me.

    We're really behind too. I keep hoping that some of what we recorded will get canceled so we can just delete what's on the Tivo. :D

    Wouldn't...
    I've decided that I'm not going to worry about watching everything and just picked a few things to specifically not watch on the assumption i'll be able to pick them up during a slow time either on netflix or Amazon VOD. Currently on my list:

    Person of Interest
    Once Upon a Time
    Vampire Diaries
    Touch
    Dexter
    Homeland
    Strikeback (these 3 are primarily because we don't subscribe to any premium channels)

    Season 6 sucked. You should just skip it. There was a very thorough "Previously On" segment before the beginning of S7E1 that summarized all of S6. I'd recommend just skipping 6 and starting with 7.

    touch is soooo annoying until the last ep....super slow and the plot becomes trite everyweek.

    but if you want a feel good warm and fuzzy show, this is it

    complicating things is never hearing the phrase 'set up a hard perimeter' which is one reason i really dont wanna watch it again. but i probly will

    I have a new XL4 so I have 4 tuners and 300 hrs of capacity. I am behind on my shows as I went to Disney this past weekend and returned Monday. Now I have my friend's wedding coming up this weekend. I am not too worried yet as I think I have enough space to float things. Shows like HIMYM, Survivor, etc. I watch usually night of, if not quickly after. Other shows like the Voice I will wait until whenever to watch and then NCIS is just building up. Again like I said hopefully space is not an issue as when it comes the time between Fall and Spring I will still have new shows to watch.

    I almost always make it a point not to let things pile up too much if I can avoid it. So, what I normally would do is watch them in the order that they were recorded, not let any one show get archived long-term. There ARE exceptions, like having several shows I am behind this week, BUT still watching Supernatural live (almost). there are priorities after all.

    This year has several shows that I am watching in a probationary manner, but so far, none of them seems like "must watch" material. The are all just okay, none have really grabbed me. I will likely drop a few of them pretty quickly.

    So many series shows we get way behind, and some we only watch

    True Blood, Dexter, and shows like this we watch in a week

    My TiVo hasn't been 100% empty since 2005. I even took a picture, because that was the first time it WAS EVER empty since we started with TiVo in 2001. Now we have three TiVos...though the third one is pretty much kid stuff only (repeats of things on the downstairs tv) so technically we could delete all that).

    Argh, deleted my premiere of Vegas to make space (I still am not quite sure if I'm going to have shows nuked by the time I get home), and canceled Last Resort SP due to no tuners.. and manually cancelled Person of Interest recording since it was going to be clipped..

    OK, even though I'm purposely trying to limit shows, I need more tuners just to get the _old_ shows I want, plus a very few new shows (Revolution, Go On, seems like there might be ONE other sitcom I 'got into', but I think I'm going to stop the other Monday one with the brother moving in with his sister & niece.) Weird, seems like I'm watching fewer shows total, but they're stacking up quicker (and I'm not noticeably watching less amount of TV)
