Re-Runs

Every morning my favorite morning news show -  America's Newsroom - records on my DVR.  That way, if I get on my treadmill about 15 minutes after it starts, I can get all the morning news without having to watch the commercials!  I love my fast forward button.

But what makes me laugh is when The Brain comes home after work and flips the tv on to watch the recording.  I think I mentioned to him once that there is more up-to-the-minute news available, but he didn't really care.  He likes America's Newsroom, ok? 

(Secretly, I think he likes Megyn Kelly, but since I kind of have a thing for Glenn Beck, we have an unspoken agreement to give each other a pass.)

Anyway, it really cracked me up when I came home from an early morning run last Saturday, and found The Brain lying in bed watching America's Newsroom... from last Wednesday.
When I looked at him like he was one step away from the drop off to crazyland, he just shrugged like I was the weird one, and responded,
"What?  I haven't seen this one yet!"
 

... I guess I watch reruns of my favorite shows, too...

Who doesn't watch reruns--I worry when I watch them a second or third time. Yes, I DO.

We are soul sisters. I totally watch America's Newsroom. Well, the first fifteen minutes, then I head off to work. But those are the most important 15 minutes of the show! And you already know of my woman crush on Megyn Kelly.....

Melissa said...

I've never had a DVR. Do you have to have a cable/dish subscription to use one?

JustRandi said...

mhm- yeah, it's like TIVO - and works with our cable.

barb- It's FOX news at 7am mst

dave- yeah, but the newspapers don't always have pictures of Megyn Kelly.

yvonne- when I catch him watching them for the 3rd time, then I'll REALLY worry.

lol

But you wouldn't expect "the news", from last week, to be his favorite show, or even re-runable. It changes every day....

It is a good news show but I don't think I would watch it after the fact. If I did I know I would get caught up in an old news story as if it was new.

Ever watch a recorded show and find yourself shocked by breaking news or a weather report. One time I dressed my daughter for snow in July.
