I cannot believe how much TV I’ve watched this week – and now this weekend!
The TV in my house is usually downstairs in the bedroom my grandson uses when he stays over. The last time I watched it was when Tim Russert died, and Meet the Press did a beautiful show presenting all sides of him. I did watch the Wimbledon final with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at my friend Diane’s house.
But then the Democratic convention – so many beautiful / fun / uplifting moments – excepting several of the pundits – had me in front of the TV all week. And I was on the Square watching Barack’s acceptance speech on the jumbotron. I really found myself much tireder and less focused, less clear most of the week. Wonder if that’s part of TV watching, and whether others experience a sort of exhaustion and lack of motivation.
I don’t have cable – wouldn’t mind paying for what I want to watch, but the cable company doesn’t like to be paid that way. So I watch the big three and pbs, which is almost all I can see on my set.
Now, this Labor Day weekend – it’s the US Open – and since I am a hard core tennis fan, with the Open on CBS over the weekend – I am again glued to the set.
And planning to watch Barack and Joe on Sixty Minutes this Sunday evening.
Good thing the fireworks are not on when CBS is running tennis! I’ll be able to leave the house and go to the party across the street to watch.
