escape!

when i was in college i prided myself on being a non-TV watcher. i didn't get into Friends until the end, hated American Idol and thought Survivor was stupid. but i have progressed (or is it regressed?) since i graduated. one of my favorite things to do is watch entire seasons of various shows on DVD. when i lived in China i think i watched 3 seasons of 24 in a week (which explains why i haven't watched it since returning to the states...too impatient to wait a whole week).

i had high hopes for the fall TV season, but my schedule has since dwindled --

beginning of the season:
Sunday: True Blood, Brothers and Sisters
Monday: Gossip Girl, The Hills, How I Met Your Mother
Tuesday: The Cleaner, 90210
Wednesday: Lipstick Jungle
Thursday: Grey's, Ugly Betty (if i happen to catch it), and The Office

now:
Sunday: still watch True Blood (even though their accents are TERRIBLE!), but can Brothers and Sisters be any more whiny? it's getting on my nerves.
Monday: still watch Gossip Girl and How I Met Your Mother, but The Hills...ugh, Audrina, why do you make such terrible decisions? I want to punch her in the face the whole time which makes it hard for me to watch.
Tuesday: 90210 is boring, and my DVR hasn't been recording The Cleaner - not sure what's going on with that...anybody know? Anybody actually watch this show?
Wednesday: Lipstick Jungle moved to Friday, but i like it and still try to keep up
Thursday: totally over Grey's, don't make time to watch Ugly Betty and will catch up with The Office if I'm bored enough on the weekends, though I haven't been lately

What are you watching? Is there something I'm missing out on? Let me know!

I like most anything on Bravo. Top Chef is about to start again and I can't wait! I love Project Runway and Tabetha's salon takeover too.

I really love Lipstick Jungle and I have been watching 90210 too. I agree it is a little cheesy but so was the original and I loved it :)

I am all about Jon and Kate plus 8 and the show about the people with 17 kids. It just makes me realize that my life with 2 kids is a walk in the park so I shouldn't complain.

The Office is another fav and Adam and I actually watch that together. Our newest time waster is Chuck. It's really entertaining and I would highly recommend it. The only other show we watch together would be The O'Rielly Factor.

After writing all of that it seems like I watch a lot of tv. There are actually plenty of times when the tv is off and we are listening to music. But tv really is a nice escape :)

I started watching Desperate Housewives on Sundays last season. It really makes me laugh. And I now always watch Jon and Kate Plus 8 and 17 Kids and Counting on Mondays after I watch Gossip Girl. And CSI of course, but usually on Saturdays on On Demand. And I'm really glad somebody else is over Grey's. It now either bores me or makes me cry. I'm still watching it though, I guess because I'm just loyal like that.
