OMG. Sports takes up most of the time. AAA All-Star backhaul on one TV now and the ESPY's backhaul on another. Was watching Big Brother on another TV earlier. Sports takes up most of the viewing habits. Shows I still watch are the ones I've watched for years. Friends, Frasier, Cops, AMW & I guess NYPD Blue are the regular ones. I've seen all of the Survivor, Big Brother, Fear Factor, Dog Eat Dog (Brooke's cute
) reality shows. Whatever game shows make it to primetime, Howard on E! at 8, Letterman and the Tonight Show at 8:35. Sports takes up priority and on all 9 TV's and then the shows get put on whatever TV when the game(s) are over. Usually west coast feeds.
Today Show from 4 to 6am, but mostly 5-6am. Regis and Kelly for about 20 minutes at 6am. That takes up the weekday mornings. Backhauls, sports, backhauls and sports takes up the nighttime hours. Wednesday's right now are my relaxation night as ESPN has exclusivity on baseball, so I can relax on that night.
College Saturday's: College backhauls start around 7 to 7:30am (if not CBS Digital), but mostly around 8-8:10am if FSN, Jefferson Pilot or ESPN + feeds. Hawaii games start at 9:00pm on either T5 or T7 Ku (backhauls come up from K5-the home team around 8:22-8:25pm). College sports during the season takes from 8am to say midnight. 16 hours.
NBC Golf. Their backhauls show up 2 hours before they hit the air. That's usually 5 hours in a day or so. Can never get enough of Johnny Miller. He knows golf.
MLB backhauls are mostly on c-band and mixed with the EI games then that happens whenever throughout the day/night.
NFL regular season games particularly on Sunday's take over the MLB games from 10am to 1pm in September's and then MLB games come on around 1:00 on the smaller TV's.
NFL pre-season games are mostly backhauls - so those are usually on 1-3 TV's (particulary Rams games). FSN2, KCBS and/or the network NFL pre-season games if on Friday nights or Saturday's take up the other TV's. Come August and September, you can weed out the Tigers, Royals, Brewers games from EI as those teams won't make the playoffs. Might be simpler this year and weed out all MLB if there is a lockout in August?
After the weeding, that leaves more room for the NFL pre-season games.
Sports backhauls from curling, PWBA Bowling, Mascot home run derby, anything where the mics are opened during the commercial breaks take up the rest of the time during the day especially now on Saturday's since FOX has MLB exclusivity.
Whenever I'm home, it's sports mostly. History Channel, A&E, PBS-Antique Roadshow, HGTV (don't tell my friends) and maybe a Cheers rerun on Nick are my other choices to fill in the home gaps. ESPY's just finished now. ESPY 2002 on the color bars as the feed is about to be signed off. Goodbye! Goodbye for now. I know I left stuff out, but sports rules this apartment.
