Maybe it's the weird seasons that cable has added to the line up with the multi-year hiatus from season to season... maybe it's the "demands" of the consumer for more entertainment, more intensity, more drama... maybe it's the ease of tossing reality TV into any open slot on the schedule.
Either way, the networks seem to really be embracing this new way of doing seasons this year.
We have a whole new lineup about to start this week! Some shows are coming back after a hiatus from the first part of the season, some are coming back from last year, some from this summer... either way, our TV watching is about to switch up!
MONDAY (Thank goodness we have a dual DVR)
Chuck (but the season premiere is 2 episodes on Sun, Jan 10 and then another Mon, Jan 11)
And we watch Saturday Night Live- DVR it and watch it and complain about how not funny it is.
Glee comes back in the spring. Far too long a wait.
Jeff's got me hooked on Doctor Who now, too. I'm going about it all backwards- I watched the Christmas and New Year's episodes (season finale episodes) and will now go back to the very start of this newly done Doctor Who and watch up until these episodes and, hopefully, be ready for the start of the next season this spring!
I think V comes back this spring, too, right?
And the new Survivor starts up in February- Heroes vs Villains!
And I suppose we'll pick back up with FlashForward, just for the sake of finding out what happens. The writing on that show needs a serious overhaul but the idea is fascinating!
Yes, we watch a lot of TV. It's our relaxing time after the kids exhaust us and are finally in bed. We like the entertainment. There is no going out, buying tickets, and so on. Just us, on our couch, being together, watching TV. It's one of my favorite things about our evenings together.
Any shows I'm missing? Any shows you are excited for?
