Here’s what’s on deck for Jess Blogs TV during the winter/spring 2011 TV season:

Monday
The Bachelor, ABC, 8 PM (premieres 1/3)

Wednesday
America’s Next Top Model, CW, 8 PM (premieres 2/23)
Survivor, 8 PM, CBS, 8 PM (premieres 2/16)
Note: I will most likely not be watching/blogging American Idol this season.

Thursday
Wipeout, ABC, 8 PM (premieres 1/6)
Grey’s Anatomy, ABC, 9 PM (returns 1/6)
Private Practice, ABC, 10 PM (returns 1/6)

Project Runway‘s return is still TBA. I’m also hoping to finally catch up on The Office and 30 Rock—we’ll see. Spring is actually pretty light, but my schedule isn’t!

How about you? Any big TV plans for the winter/spring? Am I missing something huge that you want to see covered? Comment with your ideas, or send me a pitch for a guest blog!

Jess’s Fall TV: What you can expect to read about.

27 08 2010

Fall Leaves photoMy TV schedule changes with the leaves. I will continue to blog Weeds, True Blood, and Big Brother until their respective finales, but this fall, I’ll be watching:

America’s Next Top Model, CW, Wednesdays at 8. Premiere: Sept. 8. I’ll be DVRing this one once Survivor starts, but I should still be able to blog about it.

New day! After 9 years of airing on Thursdays, Survivor (CBS) is moving to Wednesdays at 8. Premiere: Sept. 15; this season takes place in Nicaragua. This show is basically why I started a TV blog, so you can expect plenty of coverage.

Grey’s Anatomy, ABC, Thursdays at 9. Premiere: Sept. 23.

Private Practice, ABC, Thursdays at 10. Premiere: Sept. 23.
(GA and PP are so related that I may combine posts; we’ll see how it goes. I am taking two classes and working full time this fall.)

Dexter, Showtime, Sundays at 9. Premiere: Sept. 26.

The Walking Dead, AMC. Premieres on Halloween—Sunday, Oct. 31, at 9. It conflicts with Dexter, so the DVR will be getting some action.

Others:

-I’m behind on Gossip Girl, so although it premieres on Monday, Sept. 13 (CW, 9 PM), I probably will not be able to cover it. Unless I catch up. Hmm….

House starts on Monday, Sept. 20 (8 PM, Fox), but I’m a few episodes behind still. We’ll see.

-I’m going to give Shit My Dad Says a try, but I don’t know if I’ll blog about it. If not, I’ll at least give you my initial reaction and review. Premiere: Thursday, Sept. 23, 8:30 PM. (CBS).

-I’m still behind on The Office and 30 Rock, but they both start on Thursday, Sept. 23 on NBC.

The Amazing Race (CBS, Sundays, 8:30) premieres on Sept. 26, but I’m not sure yet if I’ll blog about it.

Is there anything else you want covered? Check out EW‘s Fall Cheat Sheet for a full list of premiere dates.





Welcome!

18 05 2010

I love TV. My roommate marvels at how much tube-time I’m able to cram in on top of being a full-time student, full-time proofreader, and aspiring novelist. I have cable, On Demand, DVR, and Netflix—with both an Xbox 360 and Wii for streaming. And gaming. But mostly streaming.

I’ve been meaning to start a dedicated TV blog for a long time, as I believe my Livejournal friends get tired of hearing about it. Click the “About” tab above to get an idea of what shows I like.

It’s nearly summer, so we’re actually smack-dab in the middle of finale season. Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains just wrapped up, and my first real post will be about that. We’ll have Big Brother soon (Season 12 premiere: 7/8), The Tudors is on now, and True Blood (Season 3 premiere: 6/13) and Weeds (Season 6 premiere: 8/16) will be back shortly. 24 is ending next Monday, Lost this coming Sunday, and Grey’s Anatomy this Thursday. (Private Practice ended last week.) So, really, it’s not the best time to start a TV blog. But this summer will give me some practice at keeping a regular blog before the insanity of the Fall 2010 season hits.

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by! There will be a Survivor wrap-up post later today.
