Time savers

Is it bad that, with the advent of TiVo and DVRs, I now absolutely refuse to watch anything at "real time?"

I'm the same way. I usually watch Lost, Desperate Housewives, etc. on Saturday mornings. TiVo is an evil thing.

I haven't watched a commercial in about 3 years. If we are going to watch something real time, I pause it when if first comes on and start a load of laundry or something so were just enough ahead to fast forward through all the commercials.

We do the same in our household... rarely do we watch anything live.

That is wreaking havoc with advertisers though as they are trying to come up with ways to catch you attention so you stop and rewind during a commercial.

Also, I heard technology is in the works that will require you to see some sort of advertising--won't allow you to skip through everything... I'll have to search where I heard that.

I thought it was just me. ;o) Thank God for DVR!

I feel the same way. TV on our time is the best and skipping over commercials is great!!

If it's bad then we're being bad together. I watch very little on "live TV" these days. Why should I be stuck with somebody else's schedule?

Not to mention the ability to pause or rewind to something you've missed. Do you know how many times I've tried to do that with my car radio??

I must say I find it interesting that you own a TiVo but no iPod. Hmm...
