It's official. "Monday Night Football" game on ESPN drew the largest cable program audience ever, 18.6 million viewers. The networks totaled 28.25 million: CBS: 7.31 million, NBC: 6.03, Fox: 5.69, ABC: 5.68, CW: 3.54. So Monday night is going to look like this:

ABC - Dancing with the Stars & Boston Legal
CBS - Comedy Lineup & CSI Miami
ESPN - Monday Night Football
Fox - Terminator & Prison Break
NBC - Chuck, Heroes, & My Own Worst Enemy
The CW - Gossip Girl & One Tree Hill

Throw in TNT's Raising the Bar and we'll see ratings chaos.

Heck I've got the ability to record four programs, but it isn't enough. What are you going to record?

Well, I figured that if you record one of the half hour shows, it basically precludes recording something else that's an hour or more.

With New Adventures of Old Christine moving to Wednesdays that helps a little.

8:00-9:00 - Chuck
8:30-9:00 - Big Bang Theory
9:00-10:00 - The Sarah Connor Chronicles
10:00-11:00 - My Own Worst Enemy
10:00-11:00 - CSI:Miami

I'll record the encore showing of Californication at midnight or whenever it's on, after 2 1/2 episodes I gave up on Raising The Bar. I expected so much more from Bochco. MNF is not a concearn. I have to get up at 1:30 in the morning for work and I never DVR sports, so that's irrelevent.

This week I'm OK

8:00-8:30 - Big Bang Theory
8:00-9:00 - The Sarah Connor Chronicles
9:00-9:30 - Two and a Half Men
9:00-11:00 - Heroes
10:00-11:00 - Boston Legal

Next week when they throw Chuck in at 8, I'm in trouble. Probably move BBT to the bedroom SD DVR. MRV would be nice!

That is a fact.We already have 2 HD DVR's,and that's still not enough.We are now debating the idea of adding a third HD DVR to our service/account.
EDIT : BTW,I voted for Terminator : Sarah Connor Chronicles. :)

I think this Monday is the only one that is really a problem for me.

8-9 Terminator
8-9 Heroes Preview Special
9-11 Heroes
10-11 Boston Legal

Most weeks we would have:

8-9 Terminator
9-10 Heroes
10-11 Boston Legal

Even with some buffer passing, I can alternate between using OTA and 1 SAT Tuner with my Dish DVR and be fine to still watch ESPN MNF live if I want... but this coming Monday presents the unique situation of multiple overlapping programs.

That said... I think I can still manage... Either SAT or OTA for Terminator, then the opposite for Heroes... then Boston Legal can use the freed tuner that Terminator used earlier.

Fortunately, the Closer on TNT just ended its run for the summer this week or then I would have had a problem next week!

What is the preview special? Is it a recap of last season or something?

DVR #1
Boston Legal
Chuck
Heroes
My Own Worst Enemy

DVR #2
The Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother
CSI Miami
