on the increasing demands of keeping up with all the TV shows airing as more and more is produced each year. I thought it might spark some interesting discussion here as I know a lot of us watch an absurd amount of television.
I'd saying on average I'm watching 3-4 hours of TV a night and I can definitely relate to what he's talking about. This past year especially my patience with new shows is not lasting as long as it used to be. The new shows I have been watching have impacted the old regulars though. I've started stockpiling shows that have dipped in quality to burn through at a later time. I'd probably stop watching those entirely to make room for other shows if I didn't have a sick obsession with completing everything I watch.
