Fall TV

This post will probably make me sound like someone who sits in front of the TV for hours on end...I promise I don't! I have(or J and I have) 1 or 2 shows a night we like to watch as a way to unwind. We usually DVR it all so we can watch when we have time and fast forward through commercials

Here's our Must See TV list!


How I Met Your Mother

We are a little late to the HIMYM party, but we love it! I think last season was the first season we watched. We own the first three seasons on DVD (we're about to start season 3) and love this show. I love Barney's one-liners and I've loved Allyson Hannigan since her Buffy days.

Dancing With The Stars

I've never been a fan of these voting talent shows(I don't do Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, etc). This is the first season I've watch DWTS and I'm only watching because I went to high school with JR Martinez and he's a bit of a hometown hero. He really impressed me last week and I hope he goes far! I called and voted once...people on my FB feed were posting that they voted 60-100 times using different phones & email addresses! I'm sorry, but that just seems a bit much. I usually watch until he dances and then change/delete.

Hart of Dixie

Clearly, I haven't watched this yet but it looks really cute. I love Rachel Bilson and was a big fan of "The O.C." back in its heyday. And Jason Street (aka Scott Porter) is in it! From now on, any actor from Friday Night Lights will be referred to as their FNL character.


The Biggest Loser

J and I watch this, though I've honestly been a little bored with it lately. I am interested to see how it is without Jillian. Dolvett looks like he could kick some ass, and I think Anna K. is not the best choice.


Criminal Minds

I got hooked on this show this spring when I caught a rerun/marathon on A&E. I can pretty much find reruns on every night, ha! I caught the last few episodes of last season and I'm excited to watch a full season.

Plus, Matthew Gray Gubler is cute, in my opinion. I told my BFF that and she totally called him as my "type".

See? Although I must say, the hairstyle he had going on in the premiere was not the best.


NBC owns us, pretty much!


Seriously one of the funniest shows on TV. If you haven't watched it, you need to!

The Office

I was curious to how this would be without Michael Scott/Steve Carrelll. I liked it! I like Andy as the manager. And Jim & Pam are back to being cute and sweet and not annoying.

Grey's Anatomy

This has been my show since college. Back when it was on on Sunday nights, my roommate and 2 neighbors would get together for Sunday Night TV and watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Grey's and Desperate Housewives. I've stuck through the crappy story lines ( I AM SO GLAD IZZY IS GONE!) and am starting to accept Meredith & Derek will never have happiness.


J put this on the DVR out of curiosity. The first episode was okay...we'll see.


Ghost Adventures.

I can't help it.


Saturday Night Live

We like to DVR this and watch it Sunday afternoon or something. I have a huge crush on Seth Meyers and we both love when Stefan shows up on Weekend Update!


Pan Am

I actually haven't watched the premiere yet...and I forgot to set the DVR, so I missed the first 15 minutes. I may catch it online. I have high hopes for this to fill in my Mad Men void until it comes back!

So there you have it...what I didn't mention is my somewhat embarrassing addiction to The Real World. I almost always find myself watching it. I don't bother setting the DVR because MTV loves reruns!

What are you watching?

I'll watch Heart of Dixie & SNL.

And ITA, pay for the run and you WILL not miss it, lol. It's not like paying for a 10K! I think this one cost me $115 and that was 3 months ago! That's why I am determined to run...gotta kick this injury, asap :)

Over the moon about Pan Am. And I've got Hart Of Dixie scheduled to record at our house as well. I've never watched a Rachael Bilson series, but this one looks really cute. Caveat: 5 or more bad jokes about Southerners being stupid, and I'm out.

We love the new drama Person Of Interest on cbs Thursdays. Whoever thought to pair up Jesus & Ben Linus is a genius.

Other must see (dvr) tv for us:
Big Bang Theory
Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives
Modern Family
Amazing Race
Rachel Zoe (just me, not Jeff)

I'll spare you the Discovery Channel, Military Channel & various Hunting Shows Jeff likes to watch...

Daphne: I just need to make the decision and do it!

Ally: Oh, I only listed our joint shows and my shows. J has a huge recording of things on Spike and Speed...

Lindsey said...

So many shows on and I can't keep up with them all! I love The Office, BL, and I'm warming up to Whitney.

HIMYM and Community. Actually in Sydney we don't often get many US shows (well not all of them) but HIMYM is aired here all the time :)
