TV shows you watch faithfully but would not buy on DVD

I was wondering if there were any TV shows (new, current season, not repeats in syndication) you watch all the time, but would not buy on DVD?

I personally like Jack and Bobby, and have not missed an episode yet, but I am not sure I would want this series on DVD. Everwood I did and would buy on DVD, but this series doesn't really strike me as have repeat watching written on it.

Do talk shows that air 3-5 times per week count? "Season" sets of those would be unfeasible anyway so they wouldn't even get produced, but if they were available I can't see myself buying any of them.

Lost and 24 since I don't see myself ever rewatching them. I am planning to buy Carnivale, and maybe Battlestar Galactica though.

The only TV shows I have on DVD are Friends Season 1-6 and Samurai Jack Season 1... and POTA The Complete Series.

So in other words, none of the shows that I watch now would I buy on DVD.

As for my L&O fix, USA, TNT and A&E can take care of that for me.

I like House, but don't see any replay value to get the DVD.

...

I would never buy 24 even though i dont miss an episode, it just has no replay value, however i didnt see the first season when it originally aired so i bough it on DVD and it was wel worth it, also i wouldnt buy any of the law and order shows though i somewhat watch them, they also dont have any replay value to me.

Might have to take out a second mortgage on the house for that one.

I know - that's why I am only tempted to pick it up. Going through w/ the purchase is another thing.

Add me to the fans of 24 who would never buy it on DVD -- I even passed on S1 for $12.99 at BB on black Friday. It's a great show, but it's all about the expierience of seeing what happens. I would imagine it has no replay interst for me. And I certainly don't have 24 free hours to watch it either.

I buy very few live-action sit-coms. I have every SaTC, Arrested Development and Sienfeld. But I really have no interest in the others; even ones like Friends, Cheers and Fraiser that I was a big fan of when on the air. I guess the occasional ep I'll watch in reruns is good enough for me.
