Hello, my name is Sue and I watched America's Got Talent

Just about from beginning to end, I watched it, not counting the commercials and when David Hasselhoff spoke. You see I had to record the episodes because the husband white hot hhhhhates it. Nothing entertains him on TV except World War II documentaries and Sports Center. It's a right brain versus left brain kind of thing we have going. He has absolutely no imagination what-so-ever and I watch Kookamonga television shows.

The advantages of recording America's Got Talent are as follows:
1. I can't say enough about the Fast Forward function, let's break this down.
a. I can't get past this David Hasselhoff picture and video. When he speaks, "Hoffatizes" everything and criticizes an act, I just want to say, "Shut up, you ate a cheeseburger "hoff" the floor." It's much easier to fast forward through his self indulged babbling. I think he even sang on the show, maybe even danced too, but I fast forwarded so quick it was just a blur and I covered my eyes partly too.
b. Commercials, except for the e-trade babies, who wants to voluntarily watch a commercial?
c. The sob stories, if you make it to the big show, semi-finals, finals, whatever, there's a certain amount of crying involved. Too much crying you blow your chances, not enough and you're done. So fast forwarding through that crap saves brain cells. None of them have ever made me cry and none of them have ever made me vote. But for some reason America's Got Talent entertains me and drives the husband crazy, it's a win/win.
2. That pause button, it gives me the ability to yell at a teenager at will and never miss a thing. Barking orders from my recliner with my fingers on the pause and fast forward buttons while the husband contemplates sticking a fork in his eye, now that's one hell of an evening.


How off do you have to be with your spellin' when the spell-check says "no suggestions"?


My mother-in-law is recuperating in a nursing home now and doing much better! Thanks everyone for your kind comments and wishing her well!

Not only did he eat a burger on the floor, he ate it on a bathroom floor. Yuck!

I also love to record shows and then watch them later. You can cut out at least 20 minutes of a 1-hour show by skipping the commercials alone. That means more TV watching in less time! :)

Glad to hear about your mother-in-law.

As for recording TV shows, it is the best!

I love those e-trade babies.

And the crying? I get that but I'm with you, it can be a bit much to watch all the time.

(Sigh)... the Hoff makes me sad. As for the spell check- however off you have to be is how off I am.

Since the invention of the DVR, I haven't watched a commercial since. It's a beautiful thing.

I love those Etrade commercials though!

Not that I don't find pictures of David Hofflehssel fascinating, but what does "Farvel Cargo" mean?

Oh, oh.... I know the answer to Max's question. (Not that I don't find pictures of David Hofflehssel fascinating...)

If you don't tell him, I will.

And sorry... I don't watch America's Got Talent. I can do Dancing With the Stars and that's about it. And if it wasn't for suddenly deciding I must root for Kelly Osborne, I might not be watching it at all either.
