I don’t know about everyone else, but this summer kind of sucked in regards to TV. I looked forward to TNTs “The Closer” for so long that when it finally premiered I had over hyped it to myself. But someone reminded me that last night was the season Premiere of the CW’s Gossip Girl, which I feel in love with last year during the writers strike. I spent a whole day hogging my roommates desktop so I could watch every episode online until i was caught up. I mean literally, a whole Saturday, I even ate in front of the PC. So after watching the return of Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen I sought a schedule of fall premieres. And I found a good one! Not that I really need it because I have a DVR that automatically picks these things up, but I needed to have it. Because deep down, its more anticipation than actually watching thats exciting. Anticipation is so important that people don’t even realize it. Anyway, here are a list of shows that i am looking forward to. Even though all summer I’ve been following spoilers, but those are never totally accurate because you never know what changes happen on the cutting room floor…
- 9/1/08 – Gossip Girl
- 9/25/08 – Grey’s Anatomy
- 9/25/08 – Ugly Betty
- 9/28/08 – Desperate Housewives
- 9/28/08 – Family Guy
- 9/28/08 – Brothers & Sisters
- 10/1/08 – Private Practice
- 10/3/08 – Everybody Hates Chris
- 10/3/08 – The Game
- 10/6/08 – Samantha Who?
- Honorable Mention – 9/3/08 – America’s Next Top Model
- Honorable Mention – 9/5/08 – Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader
Now, this list looks like I spend a lot of time in front of the TV, but I really don’t. I DVR them all. Do you like how I turned the DVR into a verb? That is pretty common these days. The proper way to say that was that I recorded them using my DVR. I wonder why we as people do that. Make verbs into nouns. Anyhoo, I did forget Nip/Tuck, which is such a guilty pleasure. I haven’t seen any new shows that I’m looking foward to trying. I did want to try Eli Stone last year but haven’t gotten around to it. Recently I started watching Entourage, but I won’t let myself watch new episodes until I catch up completely with prior seasons. I wonder what other shows people are looking forward to. I know Heroes is pretty popular among a few of my friends along with Friday Night Lights… hhhmmm.. not for me..
