Sweeps Week

When did I become this person? I used to follow 2, maybe 3, television shows. Now I need a schedule for premier week and I don't even have cable or a DVR. It simplify things a little that our digital tuner doesn't pick up NBC [necessitating frequent use of Hulu]. It does, however, get an evangelical channel, 4 Spanish channels and doubles of the CW and CBS.

The following are my contenders for the fall season. 

New shows I'm interested in:
Hawaii Five-0- The production value alone on this show looks pretty impressive. And I like Scott Caan and Jin from LOST and I have no competing shows for the 10:00 time slot on Monday nights. I'll at least watch the pilot.
My Generation- Ya know what's depressing, this show could be about me. It's about people that graduated high school in the year 2000 and picking up their stories in present day. This is a huge check in the column of life signs that I am getting older.
Running Wilde- Love Will Arnett. Love Felicity. This could potentially be awesome. 
Outsourced- Slightly interested. Again, I don't get NBC so this would take extra effort to watch it online.

Shows I've watched in the past but am I'm not entirely on board for this season:
The Biggest Loser- Reality shows run their course about 5 seasons before they actually get canceled. This one might be one of them. Plus, I'm getting tired of crying every week.
Parenthood- Watched most of last season but tampered off towards the end. I don't know what happened at the finale so I'm not as hooked to start up on it this season. And, I don't have NBC.
Grey's Anatomy- While I'm glad Izzy is finally gone, I spent the entire season finale from last year saying "Seriously?" over and over. If that wasn't a jump the shark season finale, I don't know what is. I've watched almost the entire series of this one but it's getting a little tired and stale.

Favorites that will remain as my must-see TV:
Bones- Formula crime dramas are as common as Silly Bands these days but Bones will always stand out as superior to them all, in my opinion. I sense that the series is starting to run a little dry but it still delivers plenty of intrigue and dark laughs.
How I Met Your Mother- Love it. Will watch until the very end.
Fringe- Fan-freakin-tastic. We were late to the game on this one and have been watching the past seasons on Netflix. Unfortunately, the most recent season (#2) was JUST released. We are catching up but will try to jump into this season as soon as we can.
Modern Family- Truly deserving of it's Emmy. I will be sticking around to see if Season 2 delivers.
Glee- Since FOX is one of the only stations that has reruns over the summer instead of creating short seasons of really lame dramas, I was able to catch up on Season 1 of Glee. I absolutely love it. Jericho even likes it [his favorite character is Sue Silvester].
Dancing with the Stars- I almost put this in the "maybe" category but it's the final season and lest we forget, David Hasselhoff is among the "stars". How can you pass up The Hoff?
The Office- This was also a tough call, mainly because once I start watching Fringe, there will be a conflict. And, I'll be honest, I'm starting to lose interest.

So what do we think? Am I missing any? Any I should absolutely take off my list and simplify my life? What shows are you looking forward to this season?


  1. I'm stoked about the Hawaii Five-O Remake, I loved that show when I was in High school and would watch it religiously during the summers. Not to mention Alex O'Laughlin is H O T!!!

    I have a list of returning shows to catch as well as new shows to give a whirl... PS I love that you watch Bones! :-D
    ok...The Event, Lonestar, Hawaii Five-0, Chase, No Ordinary Family, Running Wilde, Better with you, The Whole Truth, My Generation, and Blue Bloods. WHEW! I'm gonna watch the pilots and see if they're any good...I'll probably end up with 2 or 3 to add to my list.

    Show's I've already seen that are new?
    Nikkita.. X...the pilot was good the second ep couldn't hold my attention.
    Hellcats...I am not sure why I like this but I'm still watching.

    And lastly show to keep watching: Chuck, Castle, One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected, Vampire Diaries, and Bones. Keep in mind: I watch most of this junk at work too LOL. Sad but true.

  2. Still love Bones. Debating on The Office right now. Will probably watch it since it's Steve carrells last season. Community - most definitely.
    But you absolutely much add Cougar Town. It's not as bad as the title makes it sound. It's actually hilarious. Wednesday night. Watch it. Love it.

  3. HaHaHa... i LOVE that Glee made your list. I have so many favorite parts.... is it where Curtis teaches the football team "Single Ladies" or where Quinn tells Finn that he got her pregnant in the hot tub... or the outrageous Gaga get ups. I'm excited for this next season. Hopefully I'll be able to get it in Honduras!

  4. I LOVE Castle! It is really the only show I am watching right now. Nate won't watch it with me because we says it is unrealistic, but really, what shows on TV are realistic right now!?
