Friday night topic: What's on the tube?

— 5:35 PM on May 28, 2004

Having a TiVo has caused an odd thing to happen to me. I started watching only the shows I wanted to watch when I got the thing, and now, those shows are slowly disappearing. I've long been a fan of the Joss Whedon shows, and those have ended their runs. Battlebots is long gone. Enterprise seems to have improved and received a stay of execution for one more year.

Beyond that, I don't know what to ask my TiVo to record anymore.

TV in general seems to have slid downhill, or maybe fallen off a cliff—or at least I don't know where to find the good stuff. Reality shows are not my thing at all, and sitcoms seem to have gone into decline. My current list of candidates for season passes this fall includes: Enterprise, Sci-Fi's new Battlestar Galactica, Chapelle's Show, South Park, and maybe the new Family Guy. Maybe two of those I can watch with my wife, but that's it.

What are you guys watching, and what are you looking forward to?
