In lieu of

Good TV and TiVo (still adjusting to the inferior DiVo) I really haven't been watching much. Once I caught up on some of the shows we lost when we lost our TiVo - thank you hulu.com! - I kind of tuned out. Perhaps I was still mourning the loss, because I was a BIG TiVo fan. Sadly, my time seems to be spent in front of the computer, but I'm not even sure what I do for so many hours at night. Damn FB, definitely, but beyond that?! It's shocking really.
I see from the lists the other barmaids have submitted, that I do, actually have some good options, though, and that's exciting. Really, the only summer show I watch is So You Think You Can Dance and I do really enjoy it (dang it! I hadn't seen the elimination from last week, but of course clicking over to get the link showed me right away who went home. sniff.) I have watched since the first season and even now watch with my 3 1/2 year old daughter (who might be picking up too many of some of the moves!) It's got a mix of all kinds of dance - ballet, hip hop, contemporary, jazz, ballroom - and I love seeing the choreography and learning about the contestants. The judges can be crazy and annoying, but that's typical for these shows, right? The host is beautiful and English, so fun to listen to and not bad to look at. Even my daughter made some comments one time, "wow, she looks pretty tonight!" I thought it was cute. I don't watch DWTS, so I can't give a comparison, but I enjoy it. Otherwise, we've thrown in a couple Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? episodes that we don't catch during the year because they run on jam-packed Thursday night and that's been about it. When is Project Runway coming back? To Lifetime?!

7 tips left at the bar:

Must research the PR issue. So many people are fans of SYTYCD! Worthy summer fare.

I think PR comes back in late August. It's been too long already -- I need a Tim Gunn fix!!

Um no shit on the PR. WHERE IS IT?! I am so not into the knockoff of Fashion Show or whatever it is. I need Tim Gunn there stat.

I feel like if I watch SYTYCD I'll be cheating on DWTS. I know that sounds absurd, but there you have it. PR is probably the only show (besides sports) that I miss from not having cable. Maybe Lifetime will put it on the internet, though! Tim Gunn is the shit.
