There are two shows that Beverly and I follow. We used to be big Monk fans, but the plots are beginning to get stale after 8 years or so. But another show on USA Network that I would recommend it Psych. It is a hilarious comedy-drama. The premise is a young guy that has incredible recall and takes in all the details of a situation, but the local police department thinks he is a psychic. So they call him in when their cases meet a dead end. His sidekick, Gus, is one of the funniest people on TV (to me). It's on Friday nights at 9 (I think), but we just always DVR it. Give it a try.
I don't know if it is because I am getting hard of hearing (I don't think that is the case, so Jeff -- keep your opinions to yourself), but I have trouble understanding the dialog in so many shows. Psych is one of them. So I am beginning to use closed caption. That way, if Beverly and I miss something, I can rewind to find out what they said.
Of course, you know my other favorite by now: 24. And I am glad to know that I have converted my son Josh, who recently wrote on his blog that it is the best show on TV. Again, DVR is so cool. On Monday nights, Beverly works until about 8. So I have dinner ready, and we eat while we watch it -- usually beginning about 8:20. It is on from 8 to 9, and as we fast-forward through the commercials, we usually end up catching up with it in real time about the time it is over.
And then there is the Golf Channel. But I won't go there with you.
