My daughter said once that we have lots of adventures...so grew New Leaf Nickie, the blog intended to capture most of our adventures. If you've landed here, welcome to life with New Leaf Nickie on Havoc Hill Farm.

I Think I'm Addicted...

...to stupid, nonsensical, pointless, ridiculous television.  As I sit here, I'm watching The Little Couple on TLC that's been DVR'd.  I actually DVR The Little Couple...seriously, why?  While it is a cute show which follows a couple who are little people, it's pointless.  And, to drive my point of my addiction even further home, let's peruse my current DVR list. 

It's Me or the Dog
DogTown
Dogs 101
Dog Whisperer (Do you think I like dogs?)
The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love (seriously, I don't watch these...I can't stand Jake--total drama queen)
Top Chef
Project Runway
Gene Simmons: Family Jewels (does anyone know if this is coming back anytime?)
The Amazing Race
The Biggest Loser
Toddlers & Tiaras (really Nickie?)
Bathroom Renovations
Kitchen Renovations
Renovation Realities (do you think I'm planning a renovation?)
Kendra
Whale Wars

And then the non-reality shows:

Criminal Minds
Grey's Anatomy
Accidentally on Purpose
Two and a Half Men
The Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother
The New Adventures of Old Christine
Gary Unmarried
Modern Family (love it!)
Private Practice (I think I've given up on this one...boring)

This list doesn't even count the 12 or so shows that my kids record.

I'm thinking one of my monthly resolutions this year will be to scale back...this is just stupid!

What's on your DVR that embarrasses you?

  1. I had to laugh when I read this because we watch a lot of the same shows. I don't think I'm embarrassed by them, though. DVR has replaced going out to bars. LOL

    DVR'd shows:
    The Bachelor/Bachelorette (have to reset each season)
    Celebrity Apprentice (ditto)
    Amazing Race (ditto)
    Survivor (ditto)
    Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders (ditto)
    Judge Judy
    Little People, Big World
    The Little Couple
    The First 48
    18 Kids and Counting
    The Locator
    Top Chef
    Iron Chef America
    The Next Iron Chef (ditto)
    The Next Food Network Star (ditto)

    Then there are the shows that I watch all of the time but I don't DVR:
    All sports
    30 Minute Meals
    House Hunters
    House Hunters International
    Property Virgins
    My First House

    I'm sure there are more that I'm forgetting. You are right, though, after looking at this list I realize that I do watch a lot of TV.
