Couch Potato

Since Jason went back to work this week, I have been able to watch more tv.

Back story:  I bought him a PS3 for his birthday in November and he has been playing it nonstop frequently, when not taking care of Henry.  Not gonna lie... it kinda drove me crazy that when I was stuck on the couch nursing, I would have to watch him shoot and blow up things.  Can't complain though, I bought it for him.

So back to the topic at hand.  I have become a couch potato.  Henry likes to be held A LOT!  I like to hold him A LOT!  Our routine goes something like this... change his diaper----> get comfy on the couch with a drink, remote, boppy, burp cloths ---->  nurse  ------> babe falls asleep ----> at which point I am usually engrossed in a show, so I continue to hold him so as not to wake him up -----> by the time the show is over and I put him down, where he will sleep for 20 min and I will rush to do random things around the house (brush my teeth, eat, laundry, pet Lucie, etc.)  -----> babe wakes up and it's time to repeat the process.

My dvr is down to nothing, so I have resorted to watching shows in live time (where I actually get to see the commercials I sell) or I watch On Demand.  Here are some shows that I surprisingly have come to enjoy.
Love & Hip Hop - These girls got drama!

Tori & Dean Home Sweet Hollywood - their kid, Liam, cracks me up!
Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations - I recently watched an episode on Beruit where they were filming the day before it was bombed and got trapped there, eventually being rescued by US Marines.  Unreal!
Price Is Right - reminds me of my mom, who loved this show.  I'm pretty good at it too and would def make win lots of $$$ if I ever got on the show.  Maybe a NEW CAR!!! (in announcer voice)
The Bachelor... ugh, this show disgusts me, but I decided to watch it anyway.  The first show is always entertaining b/c there are always a few fruitcakes crying at the end b/c they fell in love that first night and now their life is doomed.  HOT MESS!
Today Show - I usually only watch the last hour with Kathie Lee and Hoda.  I am amazed that they can drink so early in the morning, even if they do get up at 2am to start their day. 
House of Lies on Showtime - I've never been big on original series on HBO or Showtime b/c they tend to be really vulgar.  This one is no exception (lots of T&A in the first episode), but I actually enjoy it.  It's pretty upbeat for a drama.
Any suggestions on other shows I should watch????

Disclaimer:  I work for a cable company, (advertising sales) and it's my job to know about the programs I am pitching to my clients.  Therefore, I don't feel quite as guilty about spending hours in front of the tube each day.
