My favorite thing about September...

September brings a lot of things:  college football, slightly less brutal temperatures, color-changing leaves, and the excitement of an approaching fall.

Thankfully, it also brings a new lineup of great tv to help me fill those long evenings when we all know I should be doing laundry or scrubbing the kitchen floors. 

Though I'm sad that my favorite, Bones, won't be back until November, there is plenty to look forward to this week...Entertainment Weekly was kind enough to lay it all out in a nice, neat format here, in case you're wondering when your favorite show returns.

Monday night is the mutual favorite night of tv in our house.  Jeremy works, so I DVR all the CBS shows:  How I Met Your Mother, Mike and Molly, Two and a Half Men (not a must-see for us, but we will watch to see how the new character fares), and Hawaii Five-0.  When J started watching Five-O, I didn't expect to like it much.  Surprisingly, it's one of my favorites, and I enjoy that we can watch it together.  2 Broke Girls will be added to the CBS lineup, and it looks pretty decent, so we'll watch and see how it goes.

I also got caught up in The Lying Game on ABC Family, so it's on the DVR list for Monday too.  I don't watch any reality tv, so a trashy teenage drama here and there is okay, right??

 Tuesday night is reserved for Glee and Raising Hope, which in my opinion, is one of the funniest and most underrated shows on tv.  WATCH IT...you'll thank me!  The New Girl, also on Fox, looks promising, so I'll add it to the Tuesday night list.

Wednesday used to be the night I had nothing to watch, so it was when I typically caught up on DVR'd shows from earlier in the week.  However, I caught Up All Night and Free Agents last week, and both were good enough to keep me watching for awhile.  Jeremy also liked Up All Night, so it may be something we watch together on the weekends.  Harry's Law moved to Wednesday, but it's one we often save for the weekend as well.  So, really, it looks like Wednesday night can still be free and I can save the shows to watch later with Jeremy.

Sadly, I won't count Law and Order: SVU among my lineup anymore, since the fabulous Detective Stabler won't be back.  I have a slight girl-crush on Mariska Hargitay, but I hear she might be working her way out as well, so there's not much reason to watch this season.

Thursday is the night of 'classic' favorites for me:  Grey's Anatomy and BonesGrey's is over-the-top at times, but I just can't quit it.  The Big Bang Theory is a seriously awesome show too, and I'm glad it's characters are getting some recognition.

Friday-Sunday, ehhh, these nights are for catching up from the week.  Occasionally, we will turn on Dateline or 48 Hours Mystery, but in general, I'm glad to take a break from tv for the weekend.

It's obvious I have a busy week ahead, but I'm excited to have good tv to look forward to (is this sad?  I'm thinking maybe a little!).  After all, there are only so many Friends reruns and House Hunters episodes a person can watch in a given week.

So, what's on your schedule for the fall?  What shows am I missing out on?


  1. Greys and Private Practive are the top of my list. I saw the previews for the new show Revenge and it looks interesting. I won't even say how much reality TV I watch. Its a bad addiction.

  2. Girl... I'm speechless! I watched Up All Night and that's the first primetime show I've watched in forever! (Loved it!) When we get extra time to watch TV, it's almost always a movie ;)

  3. omg. we've been watching so much house hunters (the international version) that i'm about to lose my mind. we're super psyched about the new seasons starting. thanks for your weekly breakdown :) i can't believe you don't watch any reality!! my list would also include biggest loser, project runway, and amazing race :)

  4. Haha...I just mentioned on my blog that Fall TV is taking over my life.

    There are so many good things!

    The new Christina Applegate show cracked me up when they were trying to make their FB profiles "cool."
