Now that the fall TV season is in full swing, it’s time for the annual declaration of our DVR casualties: What shows have you broken up with? It’s hard sometimes to make the break. Last season, I started fast-forwarding through Glee just to watch the musical numbers, and then the episodes began piling up untouched. As a former member of my high school chorus and band (who had the lead in Anything Goes junior year, thank you), I let Glee linger because I support what the show stands for. But now, after seeing how much I genuinely enjoy Nashville, which incorporates good songs without the iffy choreography, I’ve finally let it go. (To assuage the guilt, I plan on attending at least one concert and musical at a local high school this year.)
I hereby also pronounce Dancing With the Stars dead on my DVR. I used to tape the performance night (and fast-forward through the judges and backstage Brooke Burke interviews). But Annie Barrett’s DWTS coverage is entertainment enough. Plus, you can always YouTube a steamy Gilles Marini rumba.
Your turn. Which shows no longer make the cut?
