Is there such a thing as too much TV?

My co-workers and I agree: This IS the best TV season ever.
Seriously. I remember a few seasons ago there was NOTHING, and I do mean nothing really worth watching.

Now there is something to watch every night with the exception of Saturdays. And I think that's a shame.

Some of my fondest memories as a kid was watching Saturday night TV with my parents. I loved "Mary Tyler Moore" and the other Saturday night shows.

Today's TV folks have pretty much turned Saturdays into crappy TV night and reruns. What they ARE forgetting, is there are a LOT of people who elect to stay home on Saturdays and are hungry for something to watch.

I'd love it if Saturday was reality TV night. Or if they showed "classic" TV shows from their vaults. I know there's TV Land but it sure would be a nice surprise to turn on the TV and see "The Best of Buffy."

Or here's a thought, all family original programming. I've been enjoying the "Golden Girls" on DVD.

But back to my original question: Is there such a thing as too much TV? Maybe:
I know on Mondays the "Heroes"/"24" battle is getting fierce because both of the shows are in top form.

Thursday is getting tough because "Survivor" looks interesting. And I love "Ugly Betty" because it's great to see a show about normal people. I LOOOOVE Justin, Marc and Amanda. The truly are the funniest people on TV.

I've been sucked in to "American Idol" this season so I have to see it play out. Some of the Top 24 suck. Like for real. But I have to see who's going to come out on top.

Even Friday the game shows are good: I love "1 vs. 100" but the folks there are stupid. The questions are soo easy that a fifth grader could answer them. (Which reminds me, I'll be blogging on the new show on Fox "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" I sure hope so!
