Mon Funday finds us watching TeeVee at Jan and Jer's. Check out the other participants at her place to find out who's the biggest couch potato today.
Here's her challenge: Since September is just around the corner, all the TV shows will be having their premiers throughout the month. What kind of TV viewer are you? Do you like sitcoms or do you prefer drama. Are soap operas your cup of tea or murder mysteries. Game, variety and reality shows are big this year too. These are just a few examples. Share with us your favorite shows and why you like it or them so much.
Several weeks ago, we received a large envelope from Nielsen TV Ratings with a letter asking us to fill out a viewing diary for each television. It came as a surprise to me that I don't watch that much TV after looking at what was recorded in the diaries. In fact, it's very seldom that I sit down and watch a 30-minute episode of anything. Never can I watch a full length movie without popping up and down from my chair. If anyone is there with me, it is probably fairly difficult for them to hear the ending of the movie because of my snoring.
This is the list of programs set to record on our DVR : (This does not mean that all the shows recorded are actually watched. )
