Simplifying My Life One Lame Show at a Time

 I'm really not terribly opinionated. Well, I have my opinions but I definitely do not try not to push them on other people.  I certainly won't tell you NOT to watch American Idol this year or The Bachelor for that matter.

But, I have given up. Part of the new me, the true me, knows better than to spend 2 nights of my life watching AI. I know its all new now that J LO and Steven Tyler are judging and that Kara and Simon are gonzo. I like to be in the know, but I just don't have time. I love Aerosmith's music but Steven Tyler as a judge just isn't enough of a draw for me to watch it!  I might start watching toward the end, when it gets down to the last few competitors...but I have officially canceled my recordings on Tivo that I have had set for the last several seasons.

 

Same with The Bachelor, isn't it just the same thing every season anyway? New crying, bitchy, bimbos. More exotic vacations that create an unrealistic basis for a real relationship. And I just simply don't have 2 hours to dedicate to the nonsense every week. Again, never say never - I could very possibly tune in toward the end of the season, when the obvious choices have been weeded out. I also canceled my recordings for this show, and I feel almost like a little weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I will no longer turn on my TV and think, "Oh, I am going to have to watch that when I get some time." I have decided getting enough sleep for my morning workouts and trying to better maintain my household are more important. Although, not all TV watching is bad! I did manage to put away some laundry and dust my bedroom last night while catching up on Showtime's Californication and Shameless, which are two of my favorite shows. Since when did I become so boring? I know even having Showtime goes against my "simplify and save" mantra but I truly enjoy so many of the programs. I did, however cancel my HBO after "Entourage" went off season so we are still cutting back.

 

Are you watching the "new" American Idol? Do you like it? Are you a fan of The Bachelor? Do you actually sit and watch your TV shows or do you try to get other things done while your shows are on?
