Thanks for playing along with last week’s unusual theme. The subject of marijuana, and specifically, legalizing it, definitely led to some interesting answers, so I’ll hope you’ll read what others had to say about it.

Onto this week’s set of random questions! Thanks for playing along!

Be sure to check back this week and click on the links of bloggers who play along in the comments below! It’s a great way to find blogs you may not have visited and keep the conversation going!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your blog… But don’t forget to leave a link to your blog so that everyone else can visit! Permission is not granted to copy the questions to message boards for the purpose of having members answer and play along there. Enjoy!

1. In an average week, how many television shows do you make a specific effort to watch?

2. What major (“Big 4”) television network do you tend to watch the most?

3. The “Big 4” aside, which cable network do you tend to watch the most?

4. When you’re driving, what genre of music do you listen to most often?

5. How many local radio stations do you listen to in an average week?

6. If you’re playing a CD in your car, is it more likely a purchased album or a CD with various artists that you mixed and burned yourself?

If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like to see asked (and answered), send me an email! I’d love to include it in a future edition of the Saturday Six.

  1. i’ve got to say that I love the random questions as a change of pace!  
     
    Now for the answers:
    1. I’ve really gotten away from having to watch any particular shows but I do try to catch Big Bang Theory and sometimes 2 Broke Girls.  I do make a point of DVRing some shows – Grimm and The Daily Show.  I DVR Big Bang Theory, too, if I dont’ think I’ll be around to watch it.  
    2. Good question. I’d guess NBC because I watch our local news on that station and tend to keep it there a lot.
    3. Hmm… msnbc, maybe?  
    4. Rock, I guess, if I’m listening to music.  I listen to NPR usually in the car so it’s mostly talk.
    5. 2 or 3
    6. A purchased CD

  3. 1. In an average week, how many television shows do you make a specific effort to watch?
     
    None really.  I have digital cable and have it set to record some shows I like, but I might not watch them for weeks depending on how busy I am.
     
    2. What major (“Big 4”) television network do you tend to watch the most?
     
    I don’t know, I watch very little on the main networks.  I do sometimes watch Big Bang Theory – I think that is CBS but I’m not sure.
     
    3. The “Big 4” aside, which cable network do you tend to watch the most?
     
    Probably either History Channel or Travel Channel.
     
    4. When you’re driving, what genre of music do you listen to most often?
     
    folk maybe?
     
    5. How many local radio stations do you listen to in an average week?
     
    1
     
    6. If you’re playing a CD in your car, is it more likely a purchased album or a CD with various artists that you mixed and burned yourself?
     
    Burned

  4. 1. In an average week, how many television shows do you make a specific effort to watch?
    This is a complicated question, because i watch several shows, but all of them on the computer. I only really use my TV to watch movies or play on the PlayStation. If we’re counting shows I watch on the computer, then probably 3 or 4; the new seasons of Fringe and Mad Men, and old seasons of Law & Order and Seinfeld.
     
    2. What major (“Big 4”) television network do you tend to watch the most?
    Does not apply.
     
    3. The “Big 4” aside, which cable network do you tend to watch the most?
    Does not apply either.
     
    4. When you’re driving, what genre of music do you listen to most often?
    Classic rock (70’s Bowie and so on), pre-2000 pop.
     
    5. How many local radio stations do you listen to in an average week?
    None.
     
    6. If you’re playing a CD in your car, is it more likely a purchased album or a CD with various artists that you mixed and burned yourself?
    Burned myself. A lot of new CD releases in Finland cost $32 USD when they come out. I’m not made of money.
