Do you sometimes forget what you're watching on the television during a. . .

commercial break? Ahahahha. I do that way too much. I'll be like, sitting there, the commercials come on and I'll start thinking, "What am I watching again?" It'll take me at least five minutes before I actually remember. Haha. I hope I'm not the only one with this problem! :]

Yes! I do this too! It's so funny, because sometimes it's a show that I really love, or really looked forward to watching... yet I space out and forget what im watching. Sometimes I will even change the channel, and then realize later that I missed something I really wanted to see!!

I do that all the time! I am a channel surfer. As soon as that commercial starts i'm hitting the button. Then I'll get into watching something else and after a few minutes I realise that is wasn't what I had been watching. Then I start flipping through again trying to find what I was watching and hoping I hadn't missed to much of it. The white letters on our channel up button are actually worn off from me flipping so much.

That's smart :) I never change the channel during a commercial break. I'm always afraid I'll miss something or forget about it because I like the show so much. Thanks for responding!

I have done this before, especially if the show isn't incredibly interesting and I'm only watching it because I have not spotted anything else better on at the same time. Also, I tend to look through stations, switch channels, go into the other room for a drink or some food, text message, etc, so I definitely tend to forget what I am watching when there are several other things on. I hate when a show I am somewhat interested in has some trivia question right before commercial, and I am switching back and forth between other channels and miss the answer to the question! Does anyone else know what I am talking about? THAT DRIVES ME NUTS!
