TV Show

There isn't much I watch religiously on tv anymore. Lost (seriously? that was one HELL of a season finale), So You Think You Can Dance (so glad it's back on), American Idol. I also love watching the random shows on TLC and Discovery Health like Mystery Diagnosis and Dr. G Medical Examiner, but I just catch those when they are on tv late at night.

The only other show I tivo and watch and have for many, many seasons is Jon and Kate Plus 8. Yes, I am one of those that watch that show. And I know there has already been a crapton written on the internet about that show, but man, that season premiere just got to me. It was so sad to see how the two of them acted towards each other. It was heartbreaking to see Kate, as hardcore as she normally is, break down and cry. Yes, it is totally like watching a train wreck, but now I feel like it's getting personal. Kate made a comment during the show about how parents of multiples have a higher divorce rate than others - it's true in my family as well. I have a twin, and my parents divorced when I was young. But I was lucky - my parents divorce was amicable and I got two great stepparents out of it (as well as step-siblings).

I don't know if I can continue to watch this show. As much as it is a train wreck, I can't stand to see a the tension between Jon and Kate. I also hate confrontation, and I have a feeling something along those lines will happen at some point in the season on the show. I also have enough drama in my own life (you know, like running out of milk or having that darn house we still own in Virginia on the market) to watch that kind of drama on tv.

We watch almost none of the same shows - lol. I just decided this year to give So you think yo ucan dance a shot. It's pretty good so far, but it's only been one week.

The whole Jon and Kate debacle, and let's face it, that's what it is, I had to give up on. There are some things I just don't need to know. I'm sorry for the babies more than anyone else though. They never asked to have their lives lived out in a fishbowl. It's unfortunate.

Now bring me some raunchy, wild, fightin, scheming Big Brother in July and I'm a happy camper! lol
