It's that time of the year where we see what television shows you vegged out on. And it's being done by the numbers.

I remember the day we had cable TV first installed in our house.  And there was this extra channel called "HBO" that had movies.  People were calling cable the demise of broadcast TV. But there was that time when a show only REALLY mattered if it was on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox.  And believe it or not, people ARE still watching those boring old channels.
