    We just swapped out 2 units in our bedrooms, so we have 2 clean slate tivo's.

    We mainly use it for backup and for recording friends/futurama which we watch as falling asleep

    What are some good random shows to record to watch if nothing good is on our HD box.

    So far just

    friends
    futurama
    simpsons
    family guy
    king of the hill

    New favorite: Breaking Bad on AMC. It's three episodes in, but they're airing all three on Thursday night, so you can get caught up.

    Holmes on Homes--Mike Holmes goes in to people's homes and re-does work messed up by contractors from small things like messed up plumbing in the kitchen to reframing/rebuilding an entire second floor addition.

    Surf Patrol (I think that's the name of it). It's like cops but on the beach.

    Devdog took my recommendation of Breaking Bad, so I'll add my 'surprisingly interesting' show of the moment: Celebrity Rehab. I think they're doing a decent job of showing it as the emotional and psychological effort that it is, not glamorizing but still making it worth watching.

    ehhh, not really a fan of reality or home flipping/upgrading shows.

    Reality is ehh, and Maggie watches enough home shows for the both of us :)

    Gossip Girl.

    They are airing repeats right now, with extra content/deleted scenes as a way to give something "new" to the viewer until new episodes air.

    Thanks to another thread here, I've discovered a favorite "new" (I say that because it's in its 5th season in Canada) show:

    Corner Gas - airs nightly on Superstation WGN

    If you like sarcastic comedy like on The Office without a laugh track to tell you what's funny... give it a try!
