Have you noticed that it is almost impossible to record all the good TV programs on Sundays during the regular season ? I know there are ways to get it all, but when Sundays are jammed up, it leaves nothing for the rest of the week unless you are into the sit-com scene.
How would you like to see things spread out ?

Well...if they would get rid of sports programming that runs late into regular show time would help! No, never watch sports!

What is maddening about the overtime in the games is it causes TIVO to miss the ending of prime time programs, whether you like sports or not, it screws everything up.

The only good show that I can think of that is on Sunday's is Falling Skies, and that is on during the summer.

Once Upon A Time
The Good Wife
I don't see why they can't just tape the overtime part of those idiotic games and show the rest after the news.

I can't think of anything I watch on TV on Sundays except ... sports. To each their own.

As for long-running sports programming, Google these words: NBC Heidi.

I know what you mean. All of my favorite shows are usually scheduled on Sunday and then it's slim pickings throughout the rest of the week. I don't watch sitcoms either.

Sunday night is the only night that guarantees a single large viewing audience since most people are home that evening getting ready for work/school on Monday. After Sunday night the TV audience is fragmented and most people DVR shows throughout the week to watch at their leisure which also enables them to fast-forward through commercials. The Hollywood bigwigs don't like that. So they jam all their best shows into Sunday night.

I miss the 80s-90s when there was always something decent to watch most every day of the week, even on Friday. Remember must-see TV Thursday nights? Now there's nothing good to watch on Thursdays anymore.

I do agree that the stations jam all their best shows on Sunday night. In addition, the now rare TV movie special, such as Jesse Stone, seems to be on Sundays too. In addition to the above mentioned shows, I watch Masterpiece and usually the show on just before it on PBS, also airing on Sundays. It seems to me that Wednesdays are the second most likely night to air the heavies.
