Normally, I would do a Sunday night post on what I did this weekend, but ummm…. what did I do? I feel like I rushed around a lot, but ended up doing nothing productive. So I won’t bore you with the details.
Instead, let’s talk TV! It’s that time of year, when all our favorite shows – and more come back. I think some people feel the way about the return of football as I do about the return of TV. It makes me giddy. Here’s what I’m watching – and what I think SO far (I know, terribly important stuff).
Revenge – ABC 9pm
One of my favorites from last year – hope the 2nd season doesn’t disappoint!
666 Park Ave. – ABC 10pm
This premieres tonight. If it sucks, we’ll drop it, but it’s luring me in with it’s similarities to The Devil’s Advocate and John Locke.
HIMYM – CBS 8pm
There are rumors that this COULD be the least season, where we actually get to meet the mother. While I love the show and would gladly watch it for another year, I think it’s time.
Revolution – NBC 10pm
I’ve seen 2 episodes and while I’m not completely sold, I like the concept and I like a lot of the actors. Plus it’s from JJ Abrams and Eric Kripke (creator of Supernatural). I might be expecting a lot though, we’ll see.
Go On – NBC 9pm
Matthew Perry is back! I’ve watched all of his failed shows and I have A LOT more confidence in this one. He plays a sports radio host who lost his wife and joined a support group. Doesn’t that just sound like a barrel of laughs? Surprisingly, it has some really funny moments and a lot of heart.
The Mindy Project – Fox 9:30pm
I LOOOOOOVE Mindy Kaling (have you read her book?? it’s so good! Except you Paula, you probably wouldn’t like it – it’s similar to Bossypants) so I’m excited to see her branch out of her Office role. The pilot was promising and made me laugh out loud a few times.
Arrow (when I premieres)- CW 8pm
I’m watching this solely based on the hotness of it’s stars. Plus it’s on before Supernatural and I surprisingly have nothing else on Wednesday night right now.
Supernatural – CW 9pm
Do I have to tell you why I love this show again? Even if last season was a little weak – there’s a new show runner, which gives me hope that it will return to it’s roots.
Modern Family – ABC 9pm
Love this silly family.
30 Rock – NBC 8pm
My finale season of Liz!! What will I do without Tina Fey on my TV every Thursday? I guess we’ll find out in January (or just watch the older episodes in syndication/Netflix). I hope I enjoy every last minute of these 13 episodes!
Last Resort – ABC 8pm
I actually had no idea that the hubby recorded this show, or that it existed until we started watching it on Friday. The name is horrible, but the pilot was AWESOME (highly worth checking out online) and it starts Scott Speedman (aka Ben from Felicity). Word on the street is that the ratings were somewhat low, so I won’t get too attached, but I’m hoping it sticks around (or gets a better time slot).
Up All Night – NBC 8:30pm
This show took a while to grow on me last season, but I ended up loving it. Unfortunately, this season is… not as great. They did some revamping and they now have Christina Applegate as a stay at home mom, Will Arnett partnering with her brother, and Maya Rudolph just being really annoying. I’m just not buying it. I’ll keep watching for the time being, but it’s on my “I’m not super happy with it” list.
Elementary – CBS 10pm
Another show that I was really surprised I enjoyed! I pretty much loved this from finish to end. It’s procedural, but with some twists. The pilot was really smart and fast moving. Also, I love Lucy Lui in her role as Watson.
Fringe – Fox 9pm
We still have 3-4 episodes on our DVR from last season — we are really making watching them a priority, huh? BUT, it’s the final season – so I figure we WILL watch it at some point.
So, I probably watch a little too much TV, huh? In our defense we DVR almost everything and then catch up over the course of the week. However, I now feel like I should go read a book.
What are you watching this season?
