To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Did you know...

That the average American watches 5 hours of t.v. PER DAY!?!

Where in the world do these people come up with 5 extra hours a day??? It's not that I don't LOVE t.v., because I do! But, I barely have time to watch my dedicated weekly shows... The Office, Modern Family, GLEE etc... I swear, I don't even have time to watch t.v. for 5 hours a week... Who am I kidding, most nights I don't even get 5 hours of sleep!

That was until I came home for the holidays. Now, I think I might actually be up to the American standard. It's scary. I have to roll over every once in a while and check for bed sores. Luckily, I don't have any. Whew!

I have to say there are WAY too many channels. It's actually bothersome to have to scroll through all of them... especially since my dad subscribes to stations that play HIGH SCHOOL football even... what can I say, that man has MAD LOVE for spectating sports.

Anyhoooooo... Basically, I would like to categorize shows that I have been watching in one of two categories (overrated or underrated)... this post MAY or MAY NOT be updated during my Christmas Break depending on how much t.v. I actually watch.

Overrated

Deal or No Deal... I am sorry, but this show is boring.
Any and all talk shows... with the exception of Ellen (some days).
Any and all soap operas... with the exception of the ones that took place in the evening, like the O.C. and Gossip Girl (though the later is too sleazy to watch anymore).
That show about psychic people that have paranormal experiences... that show is just LAME!

Underrated

Hoarders... that show NEVER gets old. (My sister Kimberly also agrees).
Intervention... I MAY or MAY NOT have cried watching this yesterday. (Another Kimberly favorite)
Family Feud... I know, I am a nerd... but, we all already knew this. (Kimberly actually told me this was a low point for me!)
Parole Board... it's REALLY interesting.

Stayed tuned for more...

Hey, on most days I watch TV 5 (or maybe more), hours of TV a day too! It's a daily thing!
