Fall TV Guide 2011

Hi, my name is Leeann and I'm a TV-oholic.

You see, I watch far too much television. It consumes every night during the week. It's gotten so out of control that I can't even keep up with the addiction anymore. Although I'm really tempted to buy another TV for my apartment and pay for an extra DVR, I am going to hold strong and instead do the unthinkable - cut shows from my Fall TV watch list. Well, that is if my parents' DVR can't record the programs I want to watch.

Below is my list of shows for Fall. It doesn't include cable. For example, on Thursdays I also have Project Runway and Jersey Shore. That takes my count up to eight shows on one night. Impossible to watch all of them! What's a girl to do? I'm actually really sad about having to stop (or never start) watching shows.

Gossip Girl - 8pm on CW
House - 9pm on FOX (I had to skip last year due to schedule conflicts)
New Hart of Dixie - 9pm on CW
New The Playboy Club - 10pm on NBC

90210 - 8pm on CW
Glee - 8pm on FOX
Biggest Loser - 8pm on NBC (I think I'll have to give this up)
New Ringer - 9pm on CW
New Unforgettable - 10pm on CBS
Body of Proof - 10pm on ABC

Modern Family - 9pm on ABC
Happy Endings - 9:30pm on ABC
New Revenge - 10pm on ABC

The Vampire Diaries - 8pm on CW
Parks and Rec - 8:30pm on NBC
The Office - 9pm on NBC
Bones - 9pm on FOX (not happy losing this one!)
New Person of Interest - 9pm on CBS (Looks like I'll never get to start on this show)
New The Secret Circle - 9pm on CW
New Prime Suspect - 10pm in ABC

New Grimm - 9pm on NBC (Ugh! This gets cut. Sad.)
Supernatural - 9pm on CW
Fringe - 9pm on FOX

New Once Upon a Time - 8pm on ABC

I have to say that the CW is kicking butt. They already have a few of my fav shows and the new shows look amazing! I'm super excited to have the opportunity to pre-screen Hart of Dixie thanks to my bloggin' bud, Kate of Nautical By Nature! More info to come soon.

What does your list look like? As pathetic as mine? Please, say yes so I don't feel even worse about myself.

I did manage to squeeze in 8 1/2 books this summer so I wouldn't feel so unintelligent come TV season. Does that help my case? :)

Today I'm linking up with Kori of Blonde Episodes for her first installment of Flirting With Temptation! I'm pretty sure I am way too tempted by TV!!

I limit myself. So in the fall I'll be watching 11 shows total, all on my DVR. I HATE limiting myself, but you gotta do it! And I won't even touch CW, because I know I'd get sucked in & I think my husband would kill me. (We watch all of our shows together, with a few exceptions, like Glee)

I LOVE fall premiers though!! So excited they started this week!

Lauren said...

I think I'm going to have 5 shows... Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl, Glee, Ringer, and Grey's Anatomy. So I guess I'll have Wed and Fri nights free - that's something right? Though to be honest I really need to set up my DVR I've had sitting in my house for THREE YEARS =\

Mel said...

I've been meaning to do a fall TV post but there's JUST TOO MANY!!!! I feel overwhelmed. Thursdays are torture. What are we going to do?!?!

Becky said...

I am totally overwhelmed too. How am I ever going to watch them all? I just know my DVR (or my husband) is going to explode.

Miranda said...

My list similar! i am lucky where we have 2 tvs and dvrs :) check out my blog later tonight for my post of fall tv :)

Marz said...

This makes me SO happy to see! :) I work as a Media Buyer and so I am SO pleased to see that a ton of the TV shows I place advertising in are on your list! :) I'm pretty impressed with the CW's line up, they really are stepping up their game! :) I definitely LOVE this time of year just because of Fall Premieres! :)

Life Through Preppy Glasses said...

haha omg this is great!

I love modern funny. I feel like fall is when most good TV is on. My list is mainly Bravo

Christianna said...

I tend to wait till stuff comes out on DVD! Or I'll watch it on the comp if I get sucked in. I don't pay for cable. and I hate commercials, I just can't do it...

Your list looks wonderful though. No matter what people say I do love me some CW shows! They are so wonderful and cheesy, but legit at the same time. It's confusing!

KDC Events said...

Can't wait for Glee and I am excited about Up All Night!!! Other than that, I don't get to watch TV =)

Holly said...

WOW your list is intense! good thing you wrote it all out, might be hard to keep it straight otherwise. i just watch top model and some shows on netflix. but the previews for Ringer did interest me..!

Lindsay said...

I'm a tv-aholic too. Can't wait for the new Vampire Diaries tonight!! You'll have to let me know how you like Hart of Dixie!

J said...

I love TV too! but I havent had any chance to watch it! Looks like some good programing coming up!

Josie said...

No worries -- I'm a TV ADDICT. I'm so excited for Revenge and Heart of Dixie!

Veronika said...

Shutterbug said...

I'm looking forward to that new fairy tale show on Sunday! But Tuesdays would be my TV night! I love Glee!

Punctuation Mark said...

i saw today the preview for grey's anatomy... it look good but def will try to check some of these out

Anonymous said...

I'm stopping by from the Blonde Episodes!

My fall schedule does not look as bad as yours but I've had to make an effort every year to trim my dvr list. I think the only new show I'm adding is Once Upon a Time b/c its easier to avoid new shows then cut out some old ones! The dvr has definitely made my tv list much, much worse though!

Ivana said...

Oh my, I can totally understand you! There are so many great show and so little time! I´m so looking forward to the new Gossip Girl season, and than for Revenge, Heart of Dixie, Ringer, 2 broke girls, and so on, and so on...I´m so glad I´m not the only one this crazy ;)

I´m your new follower :)

I watch a lot of tv too. There is a new one from, I think, Showcase, called "Homeland". Claire Danes stars, and it looks very very good.

C said...

Congrats on 8.5 books! What was the half? We watch so many of the same shows! We have a TiVo so it can record two channels at once AND you can watch another. And, we have three of them! So I can record anything and everything, but I never have the time to watch it.

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Hi, my name is Selma and I'm a TVholic. Or is it TVoholic? Oh well, you know what I mean. :) So far I can say that I'll be watching the Ringer for sure! :) Hehehehe! Loved the first episode! Wohoo! :D

Happy Thursday girl.

Kate said...

I never end up watching all of the shows I record. There are ALWAYS some that aren't good or get canceled so totally fine to record a ton ;)

Claire Kiefer said...

I need to hear more about Hart of Dixie!! I love Rachel Bilson so much, and "Dixie" sounds like the south to me . . . right up my alley. :)

I love tv too. I watch The Bachelor/ette, Jersey Shore, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Sons of Anarchy (!!!), One Tree Hill . . . oh and American Idol and The Voice when they're in season. :)

Also, I watch a lot of Grey's Anatomy reruns, especially when I'm in a melancholy mood. LOVE IT. So comforting.

Julie (Little Pink Rain Boots) said...

Love Gossip Girl!
The Playboy Club sounds interesting. I may have to check that out.

I watched the last little bit of Ringer. It looks so good!

Modern Family is so funny! What about Up All Night with Christina Applegate, Will Arnet, and Mya Rudolph? It comes on wednesday's and it was HILARIOUS this week!

Yep, your Thursday's are super busy!!! YIKES!

Brianna said...

I watch FAR tooooo much tv as well. so don't feel bad. i seriously think every blog post i have says SOMETHING about a tv show. my list is pretty much the same as yours. PLUS all the shows on bravo I'll randomly watch... Big Rich Texas? oh yeah. Guiliana & Bill? of course. marathons of Criminal Minds? duhhhhh. :)

Alyson said...

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I watched The Ringer this week and it was awesome!! Did you like it? I hope it makes it!

ae said...

My dvr will be working over time as well. My must see shows this year are Fringe, Criminal Minds, New Girl, and The Big Bang Theory.

Miss Angie said...

Hulu FTW! :) I love watching shows whenever like on a saturday when i'm in the bath on my laptop... haha

Stephanie @ Blonde Highlights said...

I can't wait for fall TV (Ringer has already started - YAY - and it was so good!). I love tv too... it's so good! Have a great weekend! XOXO

CarrieMarie said...

oh my heck, *raises hand* i am right there w/ you!! i got rid of cable two or so years ago, and it was the best thing for my tv watching, tho! i watch everything online and when i'm home on the weekend (which lately has NOT been often) i can have marathons & catch up w/ everything!

some things fall by the wayside, it's true - but then those shows come out on DVD & i can have marathons! : ) don't give up on your favorite shows! saturdays & sundays are made for catching up. except when you are out of the house, in which case they are for playing w/ adorable nieces & nephews & shopping for birthday presents (today) but hey! there's alwyas midnight - 3am! ; )

good luck w/ all your shows! having said all of the above - i'm still trying to make sure i can squeeze in my soaps, which is more difficult since they're every day! *laugh*

Kimberlee said...

lmao omg yes my schedule is just as pathetic... so much that I finally invested in DVR because no way I'm going to be able to keep up with all shows :p

Mimi said...

you and me both! i have pretty much the same shows on my list. :)
