New TV this week! I am so excited. I love TV...I don't watch a ton, I don't have a DVR or TiVo, I don't watch TV DVD's, I don't download shows off of iTunes.....but I do watch TV every day at the end of the day to relax. I have a few shows I don't like to miss (and will watch them online, if available, if I miss them. The major 4 networks offer free online episodes, usually starting the next day). After a summer of weird reality shows, game shows, and reruns, I am happy to have some new shows to enjoy.
Most of all, I am waiting for Heroes, Dancing with the Stars, 30 Rock, and CSI. I am interested in ABC's new Pushing Daisies (which doesn't start until next week), as well as the Women's Murder Club (based on some of my favorite books). The best time to watch TV is Thursday nights at 8pm...CSI, Grey's, the Office/Scrubs/30 Rock.
If you don't want to spend your week finding out what your favorite characters are up to....
