As the end of the TV season nears, a number of my favorite shows have been airing repeats, presumably to save up their best material for the big sweeps period in May. While I understand that, it's still been a bummer to have so many reruns of Gossip Girl and Grey's Anatomy on the schedule these days. And I've been thinking: Does anyone actually watch them?
On the one hand, with all the different ways to watch TV (and, you know, things to do that aren't watching TV), it seems silly to spend time rewatching an episode I've already seen. On the other hand, I can't say I've never done it — sometimes I just need a fix! And of course, reruns are a good way to get caught up if I've missed a week or two of a show.
Do you watch reruns? Or do you change the channel — or turn the TV off — if your favorite shows aren't airing new episodes?
