When the choice is between juggling a half-dozen serials or having a life, there is no choice.
Just say TiNo.

"Did you watch Ugly Betty?"
"I TiNo'd it."

Or, rather, it just poppeed into my head and I like it, so I'm sticking with it.
I like it because it's simple and flexible. Someone asks if you watched "Kidnapped" and you say, "I TiNo'd it." Hey, they've been there. They know exactly what you mean.
Other uses: "I've TiNo'd half the season. We'll see if I ever get the time to watch." Also: "What's your TiNo situation?" You: "Smith. A couple of Lettermans. Two Frontlines. Third Jericho. It's getting stacked."
