My husband watches certain shows everyday. If they are on multiple times a day, he will watch them again and even again. He loves to watch the news and weather. He has total faith in the weatherman. Even though they give a five day forecast, he has to watch it everyday and its a tragedy if he misses it. He can't turn off the radio in the car if it's news or weather. He can't leave before a show on TV is over. You are not allowed to change channels to watch something else before he has watched the credits. Isn't this a little obsessive?

It can't be now. There aren't any good shows like there were in the 80's.

That's why my hubby watches the satellite dish channel with all the old shows. Thanks for your participation.

Anything done or used to excess can be considered an addiction. The definition of addiction is when an object or substance becomes a need without which one can not function.
