CABLE, I STAB AT THEE . . .

So I'm highly considering cancelling my Cable for
several reasons:

1) It's mostly crap
2) I'm rarely home enough to watch TV
3) TimeWarner just took out the two monopoly companies (Adelphiass and Comcunt)
and became a single giant beast of a monopoly. Boooo!!!
4) It's mostly crap

These are the shows I try to catch:
* SOPRANOS
* DEADWOOD
* CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM
* LUCKY LOUIE
* BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
* FAMILY GUY
* FUTURAMA (When it returns. Woo Hoo!)
* SIMPSONS
* VENTURE BROS
* DAILY SHOW
* THE COLBERT REPORT
* REAL TIME W/BILL MAHER
* LOST (TRex is into this... but she's watching the dvds)

Most of those you can find online or on dvd. Why am I giving them money each month? If only I could just pay for HBO.

Should I cancel my cable?
What shows do you guys watch?

keep it.

since you work in film
you should be writing it off anyway..

research..

Yes, but writing off doesn't mean free, sadly.

I didn't have cable for a year (well, satellite). I really missed the Daily Show. And I like Food Network. And I missed some things on Adult Swim. My kids missed all the cartoon channels.

I'm glad to have it back, but I agree there just isn't much on.
