Once in a while my wife will <snip> clear the decks to make sure she sees it -- <snip> But except for that, we're almost always still 'on the go' -- in and out of the house -- until sometime in the middle of the 11 o'clock news -- and sometimes later.

I think it's one thing to 'clear the decks' for a 1-hour or 2-hour drama, weekly series, or special, where you "know" what the content is going to be like for the full time slot, but it's another thing to make a 1-hour commitment five nights a week to a show where you don't really know what's going to come after the monolog.  For instance, my wife and I enjoy Jay's monolog, we enjoy "Jay Walking", we enjoy the funny sign boards with the typos (whatever that segment is called), but we can do without the interviews with the self-absorbed Hollywood stars and most of the musical groups that appear.    
Where in all this discussion does a DVR play a role, if at all? 

Were I a Leno fan, I'd TiVo it and skip through stuff I didn't like.  A 
commitment to the parts I like, but enjoyable at a more convenient time.
