    The fall TV premiere season is my favorite time of the year. I’ve already seen several great shows this week, and can’t wait to see The Neighbors and Modern Family! There were a lot of good premieres on last night, but my girlfriend wanted to catch the X Factor, so I’m that I turned on my Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime feature. Once enabled, my DVR automatically records three hours of primetime coverage on the big four networks. A coworker at DISH told me about this feature, and now I don’t have to set timers for my show. I didn’t realize Law and Order: SVU premiered last night; I’m going to check that out as well.
