TV Month 2016 - The Nuclear Nielsen Family (Part 5).

In March of 2013, I kept a log of every television show I watched for an entire week. Every single program, good or bad, no exceptions. As a result, I also inadvertently kept a log of nearly everything else I did during that time. Here are the links:

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5

I had a lot of fun doing this, so I wanted to bring it back for TV Month 2016. Here then, Part 5 of the TV viewing habits of yours truly, for better or for worse. Let's go.


4:30-5:00pm - Pardon the Interruption
5:00-5:30pm - UFC 198 Weigh-Ins (DVR)
5:30-6:30pm - Antiques Roadshow (DVR)
6:30-7:00pm - Animals Gone Wild (Partial)
7:00-9:30pm - Raptors vs. Heat
9:30-11:30pm - Legacy Fighting Championships (Partial DVR)

I was drinking with friends on this night, and they refused to watch the basketball game, opting to confiscate the remote and watch Animal Planet (they're particularly fond of My Cat From Hell). I responded by watching the game in my office and drinking with the cats. I was still a good host, however, coming downstairs to mix drinks when requested.


12:00-1:00pm - Ring of Honor
1:00-2:00pm - UFC 198 Countdown
2:00-5:30pm - PGA Player's Championship
5:30-7:00pm - UFC 198 FightPass Prelims
7:00-9:00pm - UFC 198 Prelims/Bellator MMA
9:00-11:30pm - UFC 198
11:30-12:00am - UFC 198 Post-Fight (Partial)
12:00-12:25am - Dragon Ball Z Kai (DVR)
12:25-12:50am - Dimension W (DVR)
12:50-1:15am - Hunter x Hunter (DVR)
1:15-1:40am - Samurai Champloo (DVR)
1:40-2:05am - One Piece (DVR)
2:05-3:10am - SNL: Drake (DVR)

I still count all the post-midnight stuff as technically Friday, as I hadn't yet gone to sleep.

MMA, Golf, Anime and Drake. The Mount Rushmore of sleeping on the couch.
