TV anyone?

This has been a wonderful week so far. Why, you ask? Well it's the official start of fall television, of course!

I should just let you know now that I'm am completely addicted to TV. And I don't discriminate. I love fluffy teen dramas, soap operas, comedies, reality shows... basically you name it and it's probably been on our DVR at some point. Speaking of the DVR, this has been both a blessing and a curse. Sure, I can now tape a bunch of different shows so that I don't have to break my neck getting home by 8pm each night to watch them, but it has also made me want to try out a bunch of the new fall shows to see if there are any out there worth sticking with. I hate being on the late freight with hit shows, so my thought this year is to give a bunch of the new programs a shot to make sure I'm not missing something good. This all adds up to me hijacking the DVR leaving my poor husband just shaking his head when he sees the list of shows being taped. (Okay, so I might have left him a little space to tape the World Series of Poker, but still) Good thing he loves me....

And what, might you be wondering, am I taping? Well, I'll break them down for you by each night (new shows are italicized):


  • Heroes
  • Dancing With The Stars (DWTS)


  • Biggest Loser
  • Beauty and the Geek
  • DWTS
  • Law & Order: SVU
  • Cane


  • Pushing Daisies
  • Kitchen Nightmares
  • Private Practice
  • Top Chef
  • Dirty Sexy Money


  • Survivor
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • The Office
  • ER
  • Big Shots


  • Gossip Girl (encore)
  • ANTM (encore)

Mid-season replacements

  • Lost
  • American Idol
  • One Tree Hill
  • Amazing Race
  • Project Runway

See, I told you I love me some TV. What I have seen so far has been good. Biggest Loser is still super motivating, Beauty and the Geek still heart-warming and SVU just a great hour of television. Last night's episode of Kitchen Nightmares literally made my stomach turn -- green chicken or rotten tomatoes anyone? -- while DWTS has a great cast of celebs this year, which should make for an interesting race to the finish (already I'm rooting for Sabrina, Helio and Melanie -- who knew scary spice wasn't so scary?).

Between working, hitting the gym, making dinner and watching TV, let's just say my days are pretty jam-packed! :)


  1. Lightweight. ;)
    But, then again, I don't make dinner.

  2. wow, that's quite the lineup. i love me some tv too, but i'm not sure my list measures up!

  3. HO-LY SHIT!! I think you're one of the few people I know who DVRs/watches more TV than me :)

  4. Good god honey, that's a shitload of TV! I have a DVR and sadly, I never use the thing. I'm TV-deficient!

  5. I love my TiVo and will never watch TV the same again. :) I didn't think about the encore of ANTM on Sunday...that might come in handy. :)

  6. I love how you love tv as much as I do :)

  7. TiVo is a life-changer! Btw, that is quite an impressive line-up of recordings!

  8. yay! Someone watches a lot of tv, just like me :) I almost hate watcing new shows...I'm always afraid of them getting canceled like 3 weeks in :(

  9. I need DVR!! Ugh.

    That's it ::::calling AT&T now::::
