This blog chronicles my life as I try to balance healthy lifestyle habits with my husband's penchant for pizza rolls and my daughter's desire to watch iCarly 8 hours a day. It contains a mostly humorous, kind, and somewhat spiritual look at everyday life and the people who live it.

Should I give Oprah another chance?
Lots of times at home I find myself ready to fold laundry, cook a meal, dust, or do some other mindless task and I usually flip on the TV for some entertainment. With TiVo it only takes me about 38 minutes to watch a 60 minute program because I fast forward through the whole intro, the commercials, the credits, the 'sneak peeks' at what will be on later in the week, etc. I have been filling this 38 minutes with the Ellen show, which I have to admit, I really, really like, but Ellen has a lot of celebrity interviews and/or bands on her show and I fast forward through those and sometimes only end up with about 18 minutes of interesting-to-me Ellen.
Last year I decided to add Oprah to my TV viewing. Sadly, poor Oprah didn't last but 2 weeks before she got yanked from my TiVo because of I couldn't take her coverage of the election any longer. I haven't seen a single show or even a preview since.
Are there any Oprah watchers out there? Any suggestions for shows that require little attention and can be TiVo edited down to about 20 minutes?
