    It's a tough night for tv watching.

    Tonight we have the premier's of Survivor, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Survivor, Earl, The Office, and ER. And to make things more complicated, both Survivor and Grey's are TWO hours long.

    I have it all planned out to watch Survivor followed by ER, while taping Grey's Anatomy. If I had to watch one more thing, my whole plan would fall apart. I would LIKE to watch The Office, but have never been able to fit it into the tight Thursday night lineup. (Too bad they don't spread some of these shows around into the more boring nights.)

    On a side note, is anyone else having trouble watching tv this season. Strange question, I know. But after the eons long writers strike last year, followed by the summer of reruns and reality shows, I have gotten out of the habit of tv watching. Now I find it harder to concentrate and focus on the programs, and have a lot of trouble dozing off.

    I couldn't stay awake for Fringe this week. And Heroes has become far too complicated for my foggy brain. Tonight with 3+ hours of shows, I will need to sugar up for alertness beforehand. Either that, or get a few extra VCR's.

    I know what you mean, with the busy summer coming to a close and not having much time to watch tv all summer, it is hard to get back into the habit of sitting down to watch my favorite shows.

    Thank goodness for being able to record the shows. I love Heroes, House, Desperate Housewives, Extreme Home Makeover (my all time favorite), Survivor, Grey's Anatomy, ER and I do like the Office too, but if I miss that one I won't get upset. I don't have any idea how I am going to have time to watch all of these shows. LOL

    Maybe I will spend the whole day Saturday. I have nothing planned for a change.

    I hear you. I was trying to tape/watch Americas Next Top Model , America's Got Talent and Criminal Minds. It was a challenge but great flipping through the commercials. Did anyone watch Criminal Minds. Couldn't figure out the plot. Now if they put any Law and Orders on during these time slots don't know what I will do. lol.
