I regularly watch three television shows each week. My very favorite show is The Office. It is also Greg's favorite and we enjoy watching it together. It is only a half hour long, and if we don't catch it on Thursday night, it is no big deal to just watch it on the Internet some night after the kids go to bed.
The other two shows I watch are The Biggest Loser and Parenthood. I've been a fan of The Biggest Loser for a few years now. Unfortunately this show is two hours long, and takes so much time to watch and keep up with. (Not to mention that trying to watch television while the boys are still awake can be like fighting a losing battle.) And then to make my Tuesday nights tune in even longer, I got hooked on Parenthood, as it was on during the time I nursed Brody to sleep for the night. Which brings the grand total to three whole hours of television on Tuesday. Greg is not really into either program, so watching them after the kids go to bed (during the time we spend together as a couple) isn't an option.
My solution? Tuesday is now my laundry night. Greg is currently studying to get his CNA, and never seems to find enough time to hit the books. So Tuesday is now his study night. Some Tuesdays are more productive than others based on the kids' behavior, but all in all it's been a good solution. Now if I can only find a way to justify some of my other guilty pleasures... like chocolate.
What television shows do you make an effort to tune into?
