What I'm Watching Now

Back in the fall, I posted my fall line-up. My, how a few months have changed everything.

Here's how I've been surviving the strike.

Monday: HBO's "In Treatment" and "A Daily Show" (not to be confused with "The Daily Show" - the one with writers) and "Colbert Report." And that's it. *sigh* I generally still have a few things left on my DVR to get me through the night, but last night, I actually went to bed before 10 pm! Unheard of!

Tuesday: Still with the "In Treatment" and Comedy Central shows, plus "Boston Legal." I think they still have one new episode left. Oh, yeah, and...don't hate me, but I confess, I watch "American Idol." I blame the office water-cooler factor, but I do kind of enjoy it, too. I'm glad we're done with the auditions, though. I love Hollywood Week!

Wed.: Wow, still all the same shows as above - minus "Boston Legal" and add "Project Runway" (Jillian's my fave so far - Rami's a little too full of himself), and "Cashmere Mafia." No, it's not "Sex and the City," but I like it for what it is. So there!

Thurs.: Still with "In Treatment" (although...I'm not real crazy about it. I think I just keep watching it because, well, it's on) and the Comedy Central shows, and (get ready for another embarassment) "Celebrity Apprentice." SO totally worth watching for The Sopranos episode alone! Also, I watched last week's pilot of "Lipstick Jungle," but so far, I'm disappointed. I already read the book! I want new things to happen to these characters.

Fri.: "In Treatment" - again. And "Real Time with Bill Maher." The show that makes political junkies feel proud :)

Sat.: my Netflix night.

Sun.: Right now, I think all that's on is "Brothers & Sisters." Plus, catching up on "Make Me a Supermodel" - I should be embarassed but I'm so not! And "Supernanny." Because we all need to feel superior sometimes!

Oh, and one show that I've heard about coming soon: "Baby Borrowers." I'm in love with the tag line: It's not TV. It's birth control. And is "Big Love" coming soon? I'm SO obsessed with that show!

Before you ask, I missed the boats on "24," "Heroes," and "Lost." I just didn't find them appealing from the start, and given their nature, I felt like it was too late for me to jump on their bandwagons. (Boats and bandwagons all in one paragraph. Yeah, I'm creative.)

And tonight, I hope to celebrate the END of the writer's strike and we can all go back to being couch potatoes, content that no guilt is required!

I tried to watch In Treatment. I got through half of Laura, the first session and I couldn't take anymore.

I need more stimulation I guess.

I suggest you catch the replays of The Tudors and also, Eli Stone is a great new show - this is the 3rd week. :)

I love Idol, Supermodel and Runway. I don't always get to watch them since giving up the DVR, but we are couch potatoes, too.

I love Brothers & Sisters...it's the only show I watch on TV.

I love that you give your lineup! I think it's so cute...I can't explain why...


I used to watch a lot of tv but have trimmed my list down to Lost, Eli Stone, America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, and Top Chef. Even if I enjoy other shows (and I do) I always forget to watch them!
