Our cable provider has locations all over town, including the malls. If your cable company is similar, I'd take your cable box in and swap it for one with recording capabilities. I think it only costs us $15/mo for this box (hi def), and a regular one only $5/mo. It's so worth being able to record shows and FF through commercials.

Buy a VCR (plus 10 hour tape) or get a DVR as Sigi suggested.

Do you have a vcr? Just buy a tape that has at least 10 hrs running time. You can buy them any drug store, Walgreens or CVS will have.

Thumbs up

Your best bet is to buy a VCR and a VHS tape. You can get all the shows on one tape. The online schedule says it's on from 9pm-3:30am.

Run to the store, Rudee, run!!! There's time!!!

Just go to Target or Walmart or Best Buy or HHGregg (or any other store open till 8, 9, 10, or 24hrs on Sunday), buy a cheap VCR (should run around $20) and some VHS tapes. Unless you really don't want to have a copy of it.

Ya know how there are 2 types of people... The ones who eat the best thing on their plate first and then the other stuff... and the ones who save the best for last? I'm the latter. I plan to stash it away and save it for a rainy day

Seriously, Its the show my 13 year old Son and I watch together every nite (its practically the only thing he will still do with me at this stage) so, its my Ace in the Hole

awww...sorry...it wasn't meant to be. Maybe it'll come on again though. GL's stand up is very funny. I've never watched an entire episode of the show.
