ellen and i are calling it quits

Sometime back when I started DVRing last year, the only other daytime show I recorded besides the Evening News was The Ellen Degeneres Show, and I don't really have a good answer to why, but for a while we would actually watch the show later that day, and it could be pretty entertaining.  It didn't take long for it to become very routine five days a week and we started viewing fewer times, and now I can't even remember the last time I actually watched the program.

But it kept recording every day, and I'd glance at the show's info to see who the guests were and then I'd delete, and I started realizing what a total waste of time most of these guests are.  I mean, do you really want to see Dancing With the Stars contestants being interviewed?  And how many times is she going to have those two little girls from England rapping Nicki Minaj songs?

So zap!..  Bye for now, Ellen.  You're officially not being recorded.

Her humor is very hit-and-miss, but I don't know that the guests are her fault. I mean, at the rate of 2-3 guests per day, I would think one would run out of interesting ones very quickly; there really just aren't a lot of interesting people in the world. But what are you going to do with all your free time now that you're not watching your only 2 DVR shows?

his only shows?

Did you stop recording your couple sitcoms too? Tragedy!

Those were the only two daytime shows i was recording.. Otherwise I DVR "2 Broke Girls", "Two and a Half Men", and "Big Bang Theory" but often forget to watch them since "Big Bang" just isn't as good this year, and "2 and a Half Men" this year -- well, need I say more??

Giving up TV is like giving up soda. It seems unthinkable at first, but once you do it you start to wonder why you ever liked it in the first place.

I will never know that feeling. I like entirely too many things on tv. plus it makes work time fly by when it's on.
