"Sitting in my office with a plate of grilled bacon, called my man Dwight just to see what was shakin'!"
Thursday night's absurd amount of TV programming has created a huge dilemma for my poor DVR. Despite its dual-tuner capabilities, the fact that 30 Rock, Scrubs (in 2 weeks!), Grey's Anatomy, and The OC all air within the same hour (9-10pm) does not make it possible to record all of these shows at once. It occurred to me that a game plan needed to be devised so that The Upstate Life could enjoy all five of said shows without sacrificing a single one. The solution turned out to be pretty simple; we would just have to record Grey's during its Friday night encore so that 30 Rock/Scrubs could record alongside The OC (which, so far, actually hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be). Speaking of which, last night's Office was perhaps the best one this season since the fall premiere. "I'm so scared...when people don't label their personal food."
