Masters of Nighttime TV

Feeding a baby, even from a bottle, gets immensely boring and repetitive over time, especially at night when you're tired.  To help pass the time, we've been watching a lot of late night TV. There's usually *something* on that we can find, even though once you start getting in the 2-5am hours it's mostly crappy infomercials.  I've been DVR'ing stuff to watch, however my brain isn't highly functioning late at night, so I tend to save that for the daytime feedings.

Depending on when Peter is being fed, here's what I've/we've been watching.  Remember btw, we're on Mountain Time, so all the talk shows are on an hour earlier, hence the weird times. Note also I'm skipping certain times since we've rarely fed him at those particular times.

10:30pm - The Tonight Show
11:00pm - The Daily Show
11:30pm - Conan or The Colbert Report, depending on if I remember if it's on or not.
12:30pm - Last Call with Carson Daly
1-2am - Punk'd
3-4am - Fresh Prince reruns or Dawson's Creek
4-6am - Angel if it's a good episode, otherwise I'll flip until I find something.

Note that if Leif is doing the 3-6am feeding time, he'll pick either "Seconds from Disaster" or "Destroyed in Seconds", or whatever happens to be on the Military Channel, History Channel, Science Channel, or NGC, if it's not an infomercial.  Discovery has nothing but infomercials at this time. The reason I don't like this stuff is although the historical stuff can be interesting, at 3am hearing some guy's droning voice doesn't help me stay up.

6am - 9 News at 6am
7am - Today
9:30-10:30am - Little People Big World (I've gotten strangely addicted to this show, and that was well before I discovered someone I went to summer camp with is the brother of Amy (I discovered this because he was on one of the episodes and I recognized him)).

Then we start getting into the daytime where my brain tends to function better, so I'll either watch something I've recorded, or watch an episode of Stargate SG-1 on DVD.
