Shuffling my viewing schedule
"Chuck" has sucked me back in! Dang it! Photo by NBC.com
I made a big deal about how I was going to cut down on some TV viewing and give up some shows. "Chuck" was at the top of the list. Unfortunately, I got around to watching the season premiere and LOVED it.
Yesterday a colleague of mine at the day job were talking about how Monday night is jam-packed with good stuff. Is Monday the new night of "Must See TV"? I dunno.
Since I'm one person, working three jobs I can only do so much. That being said, "Chuck" is going to be moved to my Saturday afternoon or Saturday night show. That way I can watch and enjoy without the conflict.
My friends Jump the Snark and Lekili and I discuss TV but neither of them seem to be thrilled about "Chuck" so I'm safe there.
I'm going to have to move "The Biggest Loser" to a weekend show and just avoid spoilers like crazy. Last night, poor Jerry got the boot and it made me very sad.
I'm on the fence about "Law & Order: SVU" I LOVE the show but it's too intense at that hour. Last night, the case was about a teenager who was beginning to have thoughts about young boys. It was twisty and turn-y and ended up very sad.
I know the cases will give some people the heebiejeebies but let's face it folks, these pervs are out there and you could actually learn a LOT from watching.
So it looks as if my MUST WATCH shows will be: "Gossip Girl", "Heroes" on Mondays. Tuesdays, "Law & Order; SVU" (hmm, it just occurred to me, where's the first "Law and Order?"!
Wednesday: "America's Next Top Model" and "Project Runway" (until it goes off then "Stylista"0
Thursday: "Survivor" and then "Ugly Betty" (although I'll be watching it at 9 p.m.)
Friday, open. Saturday, open Sunday : "The Amazing Race," and "Desperate Housewives."
And speaking of "DH" Sunday's premiere was awesome. The quick recap: We've jumped five years in the future. Lynette's twins are out of control (surprise!). The other two seem to have fallen off the face of the earth. Gaby is fat with two fat kids and a blind husband. Bree is Martha Stewart 2.0. Katherine is jealous of Bree and Susan seems in "flingville".
Edie has moved back with a new husband who's the central character in this season's mystery. He wants revenge on someone, but who? My guess: Susan and Mike. It seems they had a bad car accident and a woman and her child were killed. They broke up because Susan felt too guilty while Mike didn't feel guilty enough. I think Edie's husband is the husband/father of the dead woman and her child.
But we'll see what happens.
