Talking about TV.  The new Fall season is just about to start.  What are we watching?

Fall 2007 TV
How I Met Your Mother, it’s up there with my favorite comedies.  Kelly and I love this show.
The Big Bang, honestly I’m not happy that The Class was canceled, it really started to come into it’s own in it’s second half last season, but we will give this one a shot.
Chuck, this is an hour long show?  We’ll check it out, for the fact that the guy that played Jane on Firefly is in it, but I’m really only waiting for the next show on NBC to start…
Heroes, this became my #1 Monday night show, replacing 24, and last season if I had to choose to watch one, Heroes would have won out.  Fortunately we have Time Warner Cable DVR’s!
24, Looking forward to it starting up in January, and seeing what exactly they are changing up.
Journeyman, I’ll give it a look, but I’m guessing it won’t make it past 3-4 episodes.

Cavemen,…  Just kidding, I will never, ever, ever, ever watching this show, and I expect it to die miserably.
Carpoolers, would this be the first ABC comedy I watch since The Drew Carey Show ended?  Tune in to find out!
Beauty and the Geek, my only reality type show I can stand.  Hey I was a geek, some would say I still am, fortunately I’ve found my beauty… ;)
Reaper, I’ll give it a shot, since Kevin Smith’s name is on it.  But I’m not really quite sure what it’s about, I’ve been in the dark on a lot of shows this season.

Pushing Daises, Seems like an interesting premise, but if it’s halfway good I expect ABC to eventually cancel it.
America’s Next Top Model, this is Kelly’s show, I’ll be watching something else in the other room, actually I’ll be playing softball, but it’s interesting to see the photography, since that’s something I’m interested in.
Bionic Woman, looks kinda stupid, but I’ll check it out.  Not quite sure if it’s going to be something I really like.
Lost, on the list, but doesn’t start up till January… right?

Big Shots, Maybe this can replace my What About Brian? fix…  It’s got Michael Vartan from Alias, so that’s a plus, and I think the geeky guy from Sports Night is in it too.
Smallville, Supergirl! Bizaro Superman! and Lex Luthor, oh my!
My Name is Earl, will Earl spend the rest of his life in prison?  Just when he was really cleaning things up.
The Office, one of the 4 best comedies on TV, and maybe one of my favorite of all time.
Scrubs, The last season of probably my favorite TV ever.  Can’t wait to see what they do.  I hear Lavern has a twin sister…

Friday, this is nothing on TV on Friday nights, it’s the night to catch up.

Saturday… hah, yeah right.

Football, Simpsons, Family Guy, and American Dad, it’s a good ol American lazy Sunday.

That’s a busy weekly schedule, eh? :)

I love How I Met Your Mother as well. Looking forward to the new season and Mandy Moore in the season opener.

Jenne really liked The Class, but I never had time to check it out.

The first season of Heroes was fun, but I'm hoping that they improve their weak points for the second season. Without the lulls in the middle of the season and the anti-climactic finale, season 2 will be great. I'm also looking forward to Heroes: Origins, especially the first episode which will be written by Kevin Smith.

Carpoolers looks like it could be interesting. ABC and I don't have a good track record though.

Jenne really likes Beauty and the Geek and so sometimes I'll sit down and watch it with her. The premise is a decent one, but the heavy editing of all "reality" shows grates on my nerves.

Kevin Smith is only involved with the pilot of Reaper, but that has been getting rave reviews. I'll check it out because the premise seems interesting enough.

I have no interest in Bionic Woman. NBC fucked over good shows last season and are debuting crap this season. I still can't believe they stole my Must See TV idea either. That's what I get for sending it to them.

I think Lost is starting up in February, but at least it's straight on until the end at that point. The show is so much better when shown that way. The second half of last season was some of the best TV ever.

Have Clark and Lex hooked up yet on Smallville? They are nearing the Will & Grace level of gimmickry as they near the end of their run.

Have you seen the "Free Earl" music video? If you haven't, you have to head over the the NBC website and check it out.

The Office is excellent, but they are treading shark jumping territory if they have Jim and Pam get together. All of the Office cards with sound at Hallmark are one of the best things about working there.

NBC always pissed me off with how they handled Scrubs. It's a wonder it lasted as long as it did. If not for some failed shows that needed mid-season replacements, I think the show might have disappeared around season 5 or 6.

American Dad? That really is lazy. It's not that difficult to hit the button on the remote. d8^)

No Robot Chicken?

Yeah, I sort of lumped all of Heroes together, it's the same show just not the normal storyline, so Origins is in my watch list too.

I can't remember what go shows NBC screwed over last season. I think I hate ABC and FOX more for cancellations of shows.

Yes I've seen the Free Earl video. As for The Office, I think they can make it work if they put Jim and Pam together, for the mere fact that they aren't the show, there is a lot more to it then just them two.

American Dad isn't bad, it's just as stupid as Family Guy. Honestly I don't really watch those three, but if they happen to be on I'll watch them, I don't record them, nor do I make an effort to try and watch them.

And nope, no Robot Chicken, I don't watch Cartoon Network.

My Cable TV shows include, Eukera, Burn Notice, Entourage, and Weeds.

Overall, ABC and FOX have much worse track records with not giving shows a chance. There were a couple of shows that NBC chose not to give a chance and then not bring back last season and what they're replacing those shows with doesn't look much better. For the life of me, I can't remember the shows now so maybe they weren't so good after all. d8^)

That's true about The Office. Since it's more of an ensemble show, it could hopefully still work if Jim and Pam get together. It's not like shows such as Moonlighting, Who's the Boss and Ed where the chase for the girl was the main focus of the show and once that ended the show went nowhere.

I might have watched American Dad before it hit its stride. Heck, I think 30 Rock is terrible and it just won an Emmy. I was just making a play on words based on your description of that night.

Eureka looks interesting, but it's one of those shows where I didn't start watching from the beginning and I figure I'll be lost if I start watching now. It's definitely something I'd catch up on via DVD.

The problem with 30 Rock is Tracy Morgan. If he wasn't on it I might consider it bearable. Especially since I really like Tina Fey. And she's cute. But Tracy Morgan is a big turn off. Just like DAG (David Allen Greer) is when I hear him stopping by radio shows in the morning (which seems to happen every couple months here in the LA area). They just seem to be too stuck on themselves and think they are so funny that it annoys me.

That's exactly it for me as well. The only thing that I've ever enjoyed Morgan in is Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. That's the perfect length of time for him to be in a movie. d8^)
