Over the past few weeks blogland has been inundated with posts on what everyone loves about the fall...to sum up, everyone loves the leaves on the tree, pumpkin spice lattes, college football, boots/sweaters/scarves etc etc. Don't get me wrong I dig that stuff too but here's what I love about the fall...all my favorite t.v. shows are BACK!
Yep it's like having a bunch of your closest friends return from a summer abroad. And no I don't feel like a loser for referring to my shows as my closest friends. I'm a t.v. addict through and through. Does it drive Kristian crazy at times, sure, but he always realizes it keeps me quiet and occupied and out of his hair. Win Win.
The beginning of the fall t.v. season can be quite overwhelming with both returning favorites and new shows competing against each other. And of course there is always the hesitation to invest too soon into a new show which could quite likely be cancelled 5 episodes in. So like with any relationship you must proceed with caution and not put too much of your heart into it until you're sure it will stick around.
All I know is that if it weren't for DVR I would probably have a mild panic attack every night trying to determine what to watch. Even with the DVR and 3 t.v.'s in our condo it's tricky at times (like Monday's and Thursday's which are jammed packed).
Oh and in case anyone is wondering, yes I still talk to and hang out with my husband despite my packed t.v. schedule...that's what commercials are for :)
So in case anyone cares here's what I'm watching so far (list could change due to cancellations):
9pm- Desperate Housewives
10pm- Mad Men
9pm- Bridezillas (yes I still watch this...don't judge!)
10pm- Brothers & Sisters
9pm- Gossip Girl
10pm- Hawaii 5-0 (it has Tweeter from Varsity Blues in it!!!)
9pm- The Event (still not sure how I feel about this show yet)
11pm- Real Housewives of whatever city they are showing, I always DVR the second showing so that I can DVR other stuff when it airs the first time. It's called DVR time management.
8pm- GLEEEEEEE!!! (Um I CANNOT wait for tonight's Britney episode!)
9pm- Raising Hope (new show, kinda cute, not sure if I like it or not)
10pm- Teen Mom (yes I like this show, shut up)
8pm- One Tree Hill (not a big fan of this show anymore, hence the DVR, I may watch it, I may not)
8pm- Undercovers (new show, not sure I really like it yet or not)
9pm- Modern Family (GREAT show)
10pm- Top Chef
Thursday- ALL Star TV night
8pm- My Generation (cute new show, not sure it will last though)
9pm- The Office (my favorite show of them all)
Here's where it gets tricky-
9pm- Grey's Anatomy (I start watching this as soon as The Office is over)
10pm- Private Practice (will watch this once I finish watching Grey's Anatomy)
11pm- Real Housewives of DC
**I will DVR the Saturday showing of Project Runway since I can't fit it in my DVR schedule on Thursday
**Another new show on Thursdays I like but have to watch online is Nikita...has a very Alias vibe to it and Alias is one of my all time favorite shows.
9pm- Say Yes to the Dress
10pm- Four Weddings (I still love wedding shows what can I say???)
Catch up on DVR shows from the week and relinquish the t.v. to Kristian for football.
Well there you have it. What shows do you watch?? Anything I should be working into my schedule???
