Not Gonna Happen

Last night I read in Real Simple magazine (my favorite bathtub reading experience - because I get too hot if I try to stay in long enough to read a book) that National TV Turnoff Week is coming up. I'm a big fan of the idea in principle, but I have a serious problem with the dates this year: April 21 to 27.

Guess what shows are coming back that week - all on the same day, the 24th? The Office, Lost, and Grey's Anatomy. Yeah, turnoff week isn't going to happen in our household at that particular time. It's like opening a chocolate shop in a little French village during Lent. Although I wouldn't have a problem putting a moratorium on Dora for the week (sorry Sawyer).

Edit: I was wrong about The Office; it's actually coming back on April 10. Much sooner than I thought! I'm still not going to manage to keep my TV off on the 24th though.


  1. Does it count if we DVR and watch later?

  2. Christie, Yeah, it counts! Sadly, I don't think I have the self control to even do that when it comes to Lost. We might do it the week before.

  3. Yeah, that is TERRIBLE timing for TV turn off. The NCAA tournament is going on and that's like the whole reason I have a TV. I think they should reschedule it in summer when nothing good is on. Otherwise the only people who are going to comply are those crazy people who already won't watch TV because they think it belongs to the devil.


Give it to me straight!
