I hear you, and I have your salvation. Here's what I do when I watch alone: I start the DVR recording. I wait until 23 minutes after kickoff to start watching the game. skip through the commercials/replays/etc. By halftime, you're caught up. Rinse, repeat for the second half. Your game still ends at the same time, but you don't have commercials. If you're still behind at halftime, just fast forward...
