View Full Version : How many hours of tv do you record/watch in a night?

I, for example, am recording 9 hours of tv tonight. Sure, I could watch some of them as they air, but with Josh, I like to keep that kind of tv off until after he goes to bed or school. If we are home, he'll watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition with me (or I can watch it even if he's around, since it is safe.). But other than that, the rest is too old for him.
My busiest night is Tuesday when I have 5 shows on at one time (from 8-9 CST). But now my problem is solved. :D
When our electronics got fried, my ReplayTV (tivo-like thing) went poof. So I've been down a recording device and it's putting a crimp in some of my nights. One of our digital cable boxes poof'd too, (we had 1 reg. dig. cable box & 1 dvr dig. cable box), so I decided to just get a 2nd dvr box instead of a regular dig. cable box. So I'm dropping the $10/mth for the Replay, which can only record 1 at a time and spending an extra $5/mth (it's $15 or so more than I'm paying now to the cable co. to get the dvr rather than regular box) to get a 2nd dvr (which records 2 at a time).
So I'm all hooked up and it rocks. Thanks to Scott! :D You'd probably die if you saw all the cables back there but it works and it looks ok from the front so... :heh:
So anyway, that begs the question, how many hours of tv do you record/watch in an average night?
Oh, and before people start bitching about how much tv I watch... Since I work at home, I tend to watch tv while I work. So that's how I can watch so much. ;)

On weeknights? My tv is usually on from 6-1am, just because I live alone and I like background noise.
But my tivo is recording in the daytime as well.

ahh, i miss the days of tv-swarm ;)
now i'm down to only one source and i'm afraid that that might go off one day as well :(
Any future plans jenny? *wink wink*

Not since I was caught. :P

on average, i don't watch any tv.
but if there are sports on, then i might watch 2-4 hours.
or if i'm with a friend, i might watch something.
i think if i had tivo, i would watch a lot more, because then i could see the shows i want when i want to see them.
1 hour of Adult Swim a night.

1-3 usually but sometimes more during the playoffs. :D

depends on what day of the week it is, but if i average it out, i'd say somewhere between 2 and 2.5 hours, if i've got nothing else to do.
it goes up a little bit during NBA season when basketball games replace some of the shows i watcg, and it goes waaay up during NBA playoffs. i watched basketball from noon to 10:30 last saturday...

I watch about 30 mins to an hour a day. NBA playoffs screws that up, because i'll just leave that on and watch while I do other stuff.

I watch from about 6pm to 1am but I leave my tv on after 1am to 8am just for the background noise and I wake up when the news comes on. I can't sleep when it's too quiet...a have a small fear of the dark and my mind gets carried away.

During the week I watch very little tv. And no shows in particular - typically whatever History, Discovery or VH1 has to offer. Just a little something to wind down before bed.
I like to download episodes of Smallville, Desperate Housewives, and Enterprise. I sometimes catch up on them on the weekends. Unless I'm watching Best Week Ever.
If the Yankees are on I'll try and catch the game.

i watch about a half hour after work to wind down.

i don't watch as much television now that sex and the city has ended on HBO... i know they have little showings on TBS... but they're not the same
i'll prob. start watching more tv now that family guy is back! wahoo~!

I barely ever watch TV, no time. Movies are more likely. Meh, I'll just catch up on my favorite shows when they go to DVD. :)

Right now, I have finished all the work for school and have a couple months off before I have to start residency and I'm sick so I can't leave the house so I'm watching about 15 hours of television/day. Once I get healthy again, I'll probably wean myself down to 10 or so.

I usually tape about 1 show per night. I have certain shows that i tape everyday so i have the latest episode and can just put it on when i feel like watching. PTI, Daily Show, Southpark, ATHF. I always have at least one episode of those. show like the daily show i tape in the morning while i am at work so i am a day behind but its not a big deal.
Tape a few shows a week, OC, 24, Family Guy, American Dad, Battelstar, Nip Tuck... etc
I don't know what i would do without my replaytv heh, especially since some certain sites are no longer around :(

1-2 hours max a night...3 days a week. Man, I should exercise that diligently.
05-04-2005, 06:30 PM
Does the term "Dream On" ring a bell... :D
/me has a reason that I can quote alot of old shows... :D

Nothing to watch now.
