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.

Jess’s Summer TV

27 05 2010

I always think that summer TV will be lame, but then when I actually sit down and put my schedule together, it’s not bad! I’m really excited for what’s coming up. This will be MY schedule; if you want to see a full schedule, the one located here is pretty detailed.

The shows I plan to watch, ordered by premiere date:
The Bachelorette
ABC (May 24-Aug. 6). Mondays, 8 PM.

True Blood
HBO. Sundays, 9 PM. Season 3 begins June 13th.

Wipeout
ABC. Tuesdays, 8 PM. Season 3 begins June 22nd.

Futurama
Comedy Central. Thursdays, 9 PM. All-new episodes begin on June 24th.

Big Brother
CBS. The new schedule is set for Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, with the premiere on Thursday, July 8th. Word on the street is that since the days have shifted, eliminations will take place on Thursday, nominations on Sunday, and the Power of Veto ceremony on Wednesday.

Weeds
Showtime. Mondays, 10 PM. Season 6 begins August 16th.

And I might watch The Real L Word, which starts on Showtime on June 20th. It’s a reality TV spin-off of the popular series about a group of GLBT friends in LA, which ended last year.

I would love to watch Mad Men but I’ve only seen the first three episodes of Season 1 so far. But if you’re interested, it’s back on AMC on July 25.
