Fall TV is back!

Tagged: television

I love television and after a summer of mid-season distractions and lots of reality TV, the fall season has officially started and I am SO EXCITED.

I blame the lack of Mad Men for my sometimes questionable summer TV choices, but fortunately, my DVR is back to working full time (no one lives at my house for free) and almost all of my favorite shows are back.

Here’s what I’m watching right now (and loving:)

  • Modern Family
  • Fringe
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Awkward
  • Good Wife
  • Ringer
  • Rachel Zoe Project
  • Glee (yes, this has been a slow start so far, but I’m optimistic)

Shows I’m on the fence about:

  • Hart of Dixie
  • Community
  • The Office
  • Gossip Girl
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Project Runway
  • Millionaire Matchmaker

Shows I’m excited to come back:

  • Top Chef Texas
  • 30 Rock
  • Cougar Town
  • MAD MEN!

Also, as much as Bravo owns my soul, I’m burning out a bit on their programming. This weekend, I saw previews for the next round of shows and, honestly, SNORE. Next Top Artist? Fashion hunters? Boring. Okay, I won’t lie, I’ll watch the Fashion hunters one simply for fashion porn. But I own up to it.

What are you watching right now that you love?


  1. Okay I am going to start with…..ON THE FENCE ABOUT ‘The Office” are you kidding me! I am so excited to catch up on it. I have been waiting to watch them online till a few pile up. Grey’s Anatomy is another awesome winner! I live for them as well as 30 Rock!!! I could die a happy women with just those 3 :)

  2. Woah, woah, woah. There is a TOP CHEF TEXAS coming out?! *dies* I cannot wait for that!

    And I definitely recommend checking out “Revenge.” It’s pretty cool, and ABC just renewed it for the season, too, so we’ll get to see a lot more of it!

  3. Kate says:

    UGH with Gossip Girl! I finally had to delete my subscription to it — it has become painful to watch.

    As I mentioned in my most recent post, I am really liking Revenge and Person of Interest. I watched the first episode of Ringer and have the rest of the episodes sitting in my DVR. We also watched half of American Horror Story, which seems decent, and are planning to watch the second episode of Terra Nova soon.

    Survivor is always a favorite, and I’m hoping Pretty Little Liars starts a new season soon!

    I could go on about TV for days, so I think I’ll give it a rest now. :)

  4. Lil' Woman says:

    I am a How I Met Your Mother and Sons of Anarchy whore, so I’m catching up with those shows.

  5. I am loving The Good Wife (need to see Sunday’s ep), Modern Fam, and Awkward is SO good. I am so over Gossip Girl and basically just watch for the fashions. Pumped for Top Chef too!

    bravo totally owns me too! i’m obsessed with rachel zoe, guilty of watching most eligible dallas…embarrassing! but right now i’m totally hooked on breaking bad & parenthood. by far my 2 favorite shows EVER!

    I’m so glad to see other people who are TV addicts! :) I need to do my “homework” soon and trim down my DVR list and stop recording some shows that I obviously don’t care over my favorite shows.

    Returning shows that I adore: Happy Endings, Community

    New shows that have hooked me: Ringer, Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie. Sensing a CW obsession? and yes, I’m 29. Also Revenge: very Twin Peaks/Melrose Place nighttime soap deliciousness.

    Shows that best step it up: Glee, Grey’s

  9. New Shows: PanAm, Hart of Dixie, and Revenge. However I”m only 1 episode in for the first two shows (need to catch up), so I haven’t fully committed yet.

    Currently Watching: HIMYM, Gossip Girl, Happy Endings and Community.

    Pining for their return: Mad Men, Drop Dead Diva

    Broke up with…Millionaire Matchmaker, Biggest Loser

  10. Matt says:

    Not gonna lie…I am really missing Cougar Town. I felt the same was as Abed did in the season premier of Community when he discovered Cougar Town was a mid-season start.

  11. I tried watching Hart of Dixie, but the lazy Southern stereotypes drove me up a wall so I took it off my list. For new shows we’re really liking Terra Nova, Whitney and Up All Night. I’m pretty sure I like Ringer, I’m not super hooked yet, but I enjoy it :)

  12. I’m loving Pan Am, 2 Broke Girls, Hart of Dixie (for the new shows)
    And on the fence: New Girl, Up All Night

    And while I’m not a huge fan somehow I still keep watching: Grey’s, Glee
    And I still love: Big Bang, HIMYM, Rachel Zoe

    I agree not a fan of much of the new Bravo promos. Oh well.

  13. New shows I’m hooked on: Pan Am, New Girl, Up All Night. and I’m growing so weary of the Housewives, the jersey girls have exhausted just about….everything. and patti stanger? just NO. I had to stop watching ‘MM’ last season because her ego was getting much larger than the TV screen I used to watch her on.

    also, YES to all of your list of shows that you’re excited about coming back. especially Cougar Town.

  14. so just tonight i watched the two episodes of pan am i had recorded and i kinda think it’s going to become my guilty pleasure…
