In this room where I'm on the computer I do tape B&B & Y&R simply because I never know when I have to leave the room (two little dogs) and if I miss anything then I can rewind the tape LOL! I also tape it downstairs where the dvr is located so I always have a tape of the week and at the end of the week I then delete them. I do it this way because dh doesn't want to see the tape at night when we watch tv. He used to enjoy watchiing Y&R but not too much anymore. But he does read the updates on his ipad LOL!
Do you tape anything else? I also tape all the Housewive shows (New Jersey, NY, Atlanta and Beverly Hills). I watch them when dh is not home. He thoroughly HATES those shows. Those shows are my guilty pleasures!!! I also tape Project Runway when it's in season. My dh tapes Doctor Who and I actually do watch it with him and Treme and we like to watch Everybody Loves Raymond so I tape those off of TBS as well as watching it on TV Land. We love that show! Good comedy just makes us relax.
