It has been almost one full month since I presented the TV Channel Challenge, and the results were less surprising than I thought. In fact, I stopped officially tracking after about 2 weeks because of how predictable my viewing is. I basically watch about 5-6 shows on a regular basis (thank you to whomever created DVR!) and don’t really have much time to watch anything beyond that. Here is the breakdown:
- NBC – 2 – 3 hours per week (The Office, 30 Rock, Heroes, and occasionally a bit of SNL or Chuck, which leads in to Heroes)
- ABC – 2 hours per week (LOST and Scrubs, when it isn’t on a 4-week hiatus)
- HBO – 30 minutes per week (Flight of the Conchords)
- ESPN, National Geographic, History Channel, or Discovery – a total of 30 minutes per week for all four channels. I rarely channel surf anymore.
I will have to add 30 minutes of FX to this list once It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns, as well as 30 minutes of Comedy Central for South Park. I would absolutely love to pay my cable company as reduced rate to only receive those 7-10 channels!!!
