    Worst week was never on season pass, but I did watch the 1st 2 episodes, but even if it gets A LOT better, it's just not for me.

    Till Death- sort of liked it last year, was never a rush to watch, but I did, this year nope.

    On chopping block is
    Fringe,
    Privileged ( just because right now it's odd man out, too much to record during that time, but I have caught the repeats on weekends) I keep thinking the oldest daughter would of been so much more fun to watch if she was played by the actress who played Jessi XX on "Kyle XY"
    Gray's Anatomy Say what you will about E.R but i think its a much better show.

    These are very close:

    Terminator
    Knight Rider
    Prison Break
    Kitchen Nightmares

    Heroes had better jump out of its replay of season 1 pretty fast. House is wandering into delete territory as well.

    Even tho Ice Road Truckers was a summer fill, I have dropped it.

    What is sad is that I did not add a new show this season, so nothing to drop. Nothing new this fall caught my interest.

    I still haven't managed to watch any of the Heroes episodes.

    For some reason, a lot of my old favorites are starting to bore me. Not many "must watch the day it airs" shows anymore.

    i agree 100%
    the pilot last spring or winter was great, but the first show last week sucked so bad i turned it off after 15-20 minutes. when KITT decided to 'fly' and also transformed i laughed and said screw this, what a disappointment!

    the five year jump ahead for Desperate Housewives instantly turned me off so that's gone too.

    Survivor is gone and Ugly Betty got dumped also, and i'm getting bored with Prison Break. oh and im sick of Extreme Makeover Home Edition only because i think its so stupid they make 'theme' rooms for the kids that will grow out of that crap in a few years and their rooms will have to be tore apart to remove all the stupid s**t that was built in.

    that's about it so far, and i don't want to get started on shows the networks canceled cause that will get me pissed off all over again. :mad:

    Fringe is the only new show that I've dropped at this point. It's not a BAD show, it just wasn't interesting/engaging enough to keep me into the show.

    I did drop Terminator this season, but I really stopped watching that halfway through last season, but never actually removed the season pass for it.

    We were watching something on tv and the warning that it needed to change channels to record two things came on, so I checked what it was recording and Fringe was one of them. I decided to not record it and then I decided to drop the SP after that. It was okay, but not good enough when I have so much else to watch.

    I'm really thinking about dropping My Name is Earl. I've watched it from the beginning and I love Jaime Pressly's character, but it just isn't holding my interest anymore.

    I recorded the first 90210 and started watching it, but never finished and decided to drop the SP.

    I half-watched about 10 minutes of Heroes and turned it off (I really never got into last season). The SP is gone.

    Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives are on probation after their lame premieres. I shoulda known better.

    I thought I enjoyed the first episode of Privileged, but all the subsequent episodes are unwatched on the TiVo and I feel no inclination to watch them.

    I have this week's 90201 on the TiVo and feel no inclination to watch it, either.

    And I think Fringe is only going to get one more chance... just like Loadstar said, I don't think it's a bad show; I just can't get into it.


    Frankly, I don't find myself enjoying much at all this Fall season. I'm looking forward much more to January February when 24, Big Love, Battlestar, Lost, Damages, Breaking Bad, Reaper, should all be back.

    'Til Death is on life support. I'd have already pulled the plug but my wife keeps wanting to give it one more try.

    I was thinking of dropping Earl but the show's a lot better this year now that he's back to the list.

    I'm sure we'll lose interest in "Gary Unmarried" and "Worst Week"...we gave them a shot, but they haven't really sold us on the idea of watching them all season.

    Um, did you see Do Not Disturb? No "potential" about it.
