    Survivor, The Apprentice, Life As We Know It, The OC.... what's a person to do?

    I am starting to get bored with The Apprentice and Survivor, but we sort of watch those as a family and so I continue to watch just to hang with them. I have been taping Life As We Know It ( yes even though I said I wasn't going to watch, a friend convinced me to tune in and I was pleasantly surprised). Now I hear The OC is back on ( I think I missed the first episode of the season) and I am curious about watching that again.

    All these shows seem to be on or around the same time. I only have two tvs so what should I tape? We watch Survivor and Apprentice on the big tv in the living room and I usually tape LAWKI in my bedroom during apprentice...when does the OC come on? Is ot on during survivor or apprentice?

    ReplayTV: The OC, North Shore, ER
    TiVo: Joey, Will & Grace, CSI, Without A Trace

    I never bothered to watch Life As We Know It. I even deleted the one I taped because the show will be cancelled soon. Busy night though!

    The O.C. is on at 8 EST.

    Thursday is my favorite night for TV. The combo of Survivor and Apprentice keeps me glued to the set.

    Thursday's got NOTHING on Tuesday: Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, The Amazing Race, Law & Order: SVU, with The Rebel Billionaire having guilty pleasure potential and House looking spiffy.

    Thursday, I'm good with Without A Trace, Green Screen, and North Shore (though I won't particularly miss the latter two when they're gone).

    Maybe its because I don't watch a lot of network primetime TV, but Thursday doesn't do a lot for me.

    Joey

    That's it. The only other night I bother to watch the networks is sunday for the Simpsons and King of the Hill.

    Other than that, its the WWE, Football, and cable news programs.

    Hasn't Thursday been the biggest night in TV AND belonged to NBC for a decade or two now? Cheers, Seinfeld, Friends...

    It's all about The O.C, CSI and Long Way Round for me right now.

    Of course, my roommate is TiVoing Joey and the Apprentice, so it's definately a big night for me too.

    Hmm, I watch CSI and ER and that's it. Joey was removed from my itinerary a few weeks ago, 'life as we know it' got only one episode and I don't watch "reality" TV. I actually use Thursday to catch up on other stuff on Tivo.

    Tuesday is the night for me (Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, Scrubs, etc...). Having watched a quality comedy like Arrested Development made it impossible to watch Joey or Will & Grace. Both shows are beyond lame. I watched the final 2 seasons of Friends out of loyalty to the characters but it left a bad taste. Joey's pilot only reaffirmed that. I get more laughs from an episode of Gilmore Girls than I do Joey or Will & Grace.

    Only Lost and Arrested Development make me plop my butt down without moving. The others all get slapped on the PVR.

    Well, considering that every on Thursday night is pretty much crap, I don't have that problem.

    I watch Joey if I'm downstairs talking with my parents. And, I'll watch ER simply because I've been watching for the entire series, and why stop now?

    The rest is garbage, so I'm good...
