I do love Fall.
I especially love Fall in Santa Barbara.
But this is not the season I'm referring to.
It's TV Season, people. And I'm so excited!!!!!
I'm astounded that some people don't know what TV Season is? These are the same people that don't really understand syndication. You will only see new episodes of Desperate Housewives on ABC. Period. Sometimes you'll see DH on a station like Lifetime but rest assured - they are reruns. And when you find The Office on back to back at 11PM - these are always w/o exception reruns. Ok? Same page? Ok. TV Season is when all our favorite shows come back to us with brand new episodes. Ooooh, I love it!
Prison Break has already started and I'm embarrassed to say that both new episodes are still sitting in my DVR unwatched. I don't know? There is something about a second baby, for me, that has made me need 'down time' so much less. Or maybe it's that my 'down time' is different than it used to be? Used to, for every single nap and after Brody was down for the night - I'd head directly to the couch, grab my computer (because I can't just sit there - have to multi-task) and turn on the TV to catch up on all my recorded shows. I have many. I do. Now, when Mia and Brody are both down...I don't know what I'm doing but it's not watching recorded TV. Sometimes I'll play The View (which I do have a commitment to) but it's usually background noise and I end up fast forwarding thru most. Where was I? What is my point?
There are several shows I'm especially looking forward to this year:
LOST of course
Amazing Race (love it!)
The following will make the DVR list but are not as heavily anticipated:
Brothers & Sisters
Shows (new and returning) I'll check out and decide to keep/toss:
90210 (hello? I just have to...)
The Fringe (can't pass up a J.J. Abrams creation)
Kath and Kim
and Cashmere Mafia
My Own Worst Enemy (it's Christian Slater, come on)
Now I'll ask for a time of silence for the show I am most sad to see is not returning in this 2008 line up:
It was good. And really, really funny and I'm very bummed. We laughed out loud at least once every single episode. Even Cara! And she knows funny. If you didn't catch it and don't believe me that it was that funny and have too much time on your hands...you can check it out here. Oh, Marmaduke. You will be missed. Farewell.
Therefore, at the top of my New Shows to Watch list is Do Not Disturb which is not only directed by Jason Batement but the stars of the show are Niecy Nash and Jerry O'Connell. As you know, I'm a big Niecy fan and I consider Jason and Jerry two of the funniest on TV.
What shows are you excited about?
