Once upon a time, I used to be obsessed with the new fall television shows. Now, I barely notice that they are starting. I’d read everything I could about them in the newspaper and I used to BEG my parents to buy the TV Guide issue that summarized what was upcoming. I blame several reasons for the decline

  • The Internet – too much other information
  • Year round programming – Project Runway shown in the summer? No problem
  • Getting older – yikes, I hate to admit this
  • Cable channels – BBC America, FoodTV, Bravo, I blame you for diverting me
  • Shittier stuff on network TV – I think this is partially due to the proliferation of cable channels
  • TiVo – I always have something semi-decent to watch

There are only a handful of shows I am even going to try to catch.

I think this list got shorter on my way to writing it. Oh well, I sure some great new series will start on BBC America soon enough.
