Well, as much fun as we’ve had here of late following our readers’ musical tastes, it’s time to put the iPods aside for a day and focus, instead, on the second greatest invention of our lifetime: The TiVo. It’s a magical device, one that allows a guy to watch the entire Thursday night lineup on all three networks on a Saturday morning, commercial-free, while recuperating from a hangover. And, best of all, it gives us the power to watch a two-hour “American Idol” episode in somewhere around half an hour (and results shows takes mere seconds to view). That, folks, is beautiful black magic.

Assuming that most of you don’t have as many Season Passes as you do tracks on your iPod, the shuffle game hardly works here. But, I thought it might be fun to learn our readers’ top five season passes, just to get an honest feel for what all of you watch on television. And, just so we don’t exclude those without TiVo’s or DVRs, feel free to give us your top five favorite shows, instead. The only limitation, however, is that it must be a show that currently airs (though, you are free to include television programs on hiatus — where that puts “Deadwood,” I have no idea.) We’ll be sure to pass along the results to Nielson, so that they can continue to ignore our feelings on quality television. And if you don’t watch television at all, well: Good for you. You’re a role model to us all. A guiding light in the sky. A beacon of good taste. Now, move along. We’re not interested in your holier-than-thou television eschewing. Seriously, beat it. Go destroy a TV or something.
