Television Is Exhausting

I really don’t have much I feel like writing about today. I tried and tried to think of something, but I keep coming up blank.

It’s not unusual for someone with my kind of killer good looks to be totally devoid of any brainpower, but I seem to be blessed with both, so this morning’s lack of ideas is especially odd and troublesome.

Anyway, I could easily coast by on today’s post by just putting up a picture of myself to tide you all over, but I figured I’ll just save THAT treat for another day, and talk about the new Fall TV lineup.

I PROMISED myself I was not going to watch any new shows this year. I watch too much shit as it is, so I decided to cut myself off. So far, I’m happy to report that I have been 100 percent successful in my efforts.

Anyway, here is my current TV Schedule:

Amazing Race – Have I really been watching this show for 15 seasons now? Anyway, from the cute poker-player girls, to the Harlem Globtrotter team, to the kid with Asperger’s Syndrome, this looks like another season that I will enjoy.

Dexter – America’s best serial killer is back! I just love this show.

Californication – It definitely lost its edge after the first season, but it’s still the best place to go if you are looking to see hot chicks with no clothes on, and David Duchoveny’s ass.

Curb Your Enthusiasm – Still one of the funniest shows on TV. This year’s season promises the reunion (sort of) of the Seinfeld cast.

Nothing. It’s very refreshing.

More nothing, although Nip/Tuck’s final season will be starting up soon.

Real World/ Road Rules Challenge – My one real guilty embarrassment. I cannot stop watching this show. Tons of young people running around drinking, screwing, and beating the shit of out each other. Seriously. Last night was the season premier and already there were 2 fights, and next week it looks like someone cannonballs into a lake and pops one of her implants. I’m in.

Survivor – Yes, I still love this show, and NO, they have not yet liked my audition tapes enough to get me on it yet. One day.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – Just gets more and more crazy and more and more hysterical every damn season.

Dollhouse – I have high hopes for this second season, even though the ratings for last week’s second season premier were in the freaking basement.

Real Time With Bill Maher – One of the few shows I watch that I’m not embarrassed by.

Saturday Night Live – This is SNL’s 35th season, and I have only missed a handful of episodes ever. That is a frightening statistic.

And that’s it.

That’s not TOO much television, is it? Please say no.

That's only 10 more shows than I watch a week, so it's not too bad.

I watch 2 more shows a week than that...just different shows. Except for The Amazing Race, Survivor, Dollhouse and SNL.

PS - Episode 5 of Season 3 of The Guild was posted today on Felicia Day's blog.

"That’s not TOO much television, is it? Please say no."

Don't watch any t.v. for TOO weeks. At the end of the two weeks you'll have your answer.

Warning the first 3 to 5 days without, could be hell.

After that you may be fortunate enough to realize some things about this outlet.

Happy tails.... Opps, I mean trails.....

Guess we all have our obsessions.

Hmmm. Interesting that the ONLY thing I watch that you do is Survivor. Some of those I have never even HEARD of, like Dollhouse? no clue.

I'm a Biggest Loser, Survivor and CSI (original) girl. Everything else? Doesn't matter to me at all.

David Duchoveny’s ass? Say no more!! :-)

Our list of tv shows keeps getting longer and longer and longer. Good thing we have DVR!

Except, now they are starting to overlap, and choices have to be made. :-)

Heff said...

Damn, dude. The ONLY one of those that I even watch OCCASIONALLY is Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Bill Maher ? I best leave now....

I love Dexter, Californication and Bill Maher.

Dexter, Californication, and Bill Maher are all good tv. My guilty pleasures are America's Next Top Model (Tyra is insane!) and Project Runway.
It's not too much tv.
I hope.

I love Curb Your Enthusiasm! It's one of my favorite comedy shows. I just absolutely love the humor/story lines.

I love Curb Your Enthusiasm. At least I think I do, that's the hilarious Larry David thing right? Yeah, seen a couple of series, or perhaps a couple of episodes from a couple of series.

You should probably save the posting of a picture of yourself for a Monday.

I don't watch a lot of television - my new show for this year is Glee - but I was discussing w/ The Boyfriend last night that I don't know if the show will last because they are pushing the script too fast. Oh - and I've caught the last couple shows of Modern Family, which is hilarious.

Other than that we watch Dexter - spent all of last year watching the first 3 seasons on DVD and then we HAD to order Showtime to watch Season 4 - LOVE IT ! and The Boyfriend is an Always Sunny freak. I mean he friggin LOVES that show.

Real World/Road Rules - Really?

Chris H said...

Michelle said...

Sunday night is the best night of TV! You should watch Mad Men!! Curb your Enthusiasm is hilarious!!!

TV is a good way to escape the real world. I don't think you watch too much, do you???

I didn't even know Dollhouse was back until Dave told me a few days after the premiere. Ask me how pissed I was! I thought they were saving it for January since I didn't catch any buzz.
