The Idiot Box

Will the public humiliation and coming out of the TV closet make me reconsider some of the trash that I watch on TV? Below you will find the list of TV shows that my DVR is currently recording. Some of the shows on this list are not too shabby, but some of them are head scratchers. I mean, come on man, I am almost 42 and I am watching not only Teen Mom but its glorious sequel, Teen Mom 2. Maybe someone hooked up some jumper cables to my head when I was passed out in college. And I don't think there is enough alcohol in the world or amateur lobotomy experiments to justify Jersey Shore. Help me baby Jesus!

Kyle, Hayden, and Tank playing their new favorite game, "Guess Who Pooped?"

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Well we have 10 in common. Others that I watch and like are; Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Alcatraz, The River, and I can't seem to get enough of old Sopranos. Go figure. There is no explanation for what captures our interests.

  2. I'm sad to say, of all the shows listed, we have one in common, involving Kenny F'n Powers. I just don't have time to watch anything except Blue's Clues lately.
    And judging by Kyle and Tank's reaction, I think Ms. Hayden won.

  3. Oh it's confession time. I never heard of any of those shows. I rarely watch television, maybe a bit of news to keep abreast of things and the odd X Factor or similar. It's not that I don't have the time, I just don't fancy watching the rubbishy repeats shown on our screens. I turned to radio a few years back and feel much more entertained.

    Love the picture, Miss Haydn deserves another hug. Kyle too.

  4. You can totally say you watch teen mom because you want to learn from their parents parenting mistakes. You can say you are just trying to be sure you understand the current generation so you can parent your kids more effectively. That's what I say is the reason I watch.

  5. I've kind of ruined Cops and Dog the Bounty Hunter for myself, I want to see Dog get the crap beat out of him and Cops is so sanitized, I mean they never show them beating up defenseless teenage girls or tazing a retarded homeless person, it's all so one sided. It's almost like it's ...

    You inspired my to put up a video with your "Maybe someone hooked up some jumper cables to my head when I was passed out in college." statement.


  6. Hello again - told you I would be back. I thought I had clicked on to be a follower last time I was here.. senility must be creeping in already. Well, I am a Follower now! Hey - I didn't see the Simpsons on the list! You don't like the Simpsons? :-)

  7. Some of those on your list are my favorites. Others I have never heard of. But what puzzles me more is how you actually have time to watch them all? I think my laptop is now my idiot box. I was up late last night playing with Picnik, so it will probably be another unproductive day.

  8. 2012 is indeed the golden age of televison!

    it takes a brave man to admit watching dog the bounty hunter. i'd replace it with storage wars or gold rush if need to keep your toe in the water for reality tv.

  9. Calliou? Really? That bald kid freaks me out!
