I have only 7.5 hours of returning shows this fall but I have 13 hours of new shows and I expect to drop at least 1/3 of that after a couple of episodes.

i've never counted days and hours. if i don't have time to watch, and recordings start piling up or drive space gets low, i delete my least favorite shows & sp's until it evens out or time frees up.

there's usually a couple of shows that i'm already thinking about dropping, but hadn't gotten around to doing so.

I may regret this but i noticed that Tivo had a category for New shows. I told it to just record the category.

Hopefully it will catch the premieres without me needing to be aware of the actual premiere dates and I can choose my shows from there.

Ok, now I just did that too. I could have misspelled something in a WL so this should cover that base, plus it may pick up something I was either unaware of or just not into enough at first glance to seek it out, but if it records, I'll take a look at it.

+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.

What are you watching?!?

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.

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'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 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.

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.
