|07:59 pm - The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two DVRs|
It's that time of year when everyone posts their fall TV schedules! Because we are dorks.
9:00 - Dexter (9/27)
10:30 - Entourage (already in progress)
8:00 - How I Met Your Mother (9/21)
9:00 - Friday Night Lights (10/28)
8:00 - Flash Forward (9/24)
9:00 - Fringe (9/17)
9:00 - Supernatural (9/10)
9:00 - The Office (9/17)
9:30 - 30 Rock (10/15)
9:00 - Dollhouse (9/25)
10:00 - Psych (already in progress)
Do they actually have TV on Saturday?
My Mondays have become much emptier now that I've dropped Heroes and Chuck has moved to midseason. Tuesday is sadly empty. Wednesday is fairly free as well but for downloaded Taylors, and before you all say it, yes, I've seen the Glee pilot, and I thought it was okay, but I'm not getting caught up in the hype. The only new show I'm checking out is Flash Forward, and I should probably save some space for midseason. I'm already watching so many shows already. AND THEY ALL HAPPEN TO BE ON THURSDAY WTF. The comedies will probably be sidelined until Friday, although it could be Fringe that gets timeshifted if no one's talking about it.
And on that note, the inevitable poll!
How I Met Your Mother
The Adventures of Tickybox
The Tickybox Diaries
The Secret World of Tickybox
Terminator: The Tickybox Chronicles
The Suite Life of Zack and Tickybox
Friday Night Lights
Village of the Damned Tickyboxes
Blood of the Tickybox
Mega Shark vs. Giant Tickybox
Meanwhile, I will continue to mainline Batman: The Animated Series and watch episodes of Psych and Star Trek and clear my DVR of movies. I do not lack for things to watch.
Current Mood: disappointed
Current Music: Incubus - Megalomaniac

I'll also be watching Community, America's Next Top Model, Top Chef, Project Runway, and GLEE OMG LOVE THAT SHOW (and I did not fall for it b/c of the hype - I just thought the concept looked funny and watched the pilot back...whenever that aired). Plus the Brit shows I *cough*acquire*cough*
Do you plan to watch V when it premiers in November(I think)? It seems like it might be your kind of show.
Also? DEXTER! I cannot wait!
V does seem like it might be my kind of show, right? But I don't know. I am keeping my schedule free. We'll see how I feel when the time comes around, if I can handle another show.
Ben and I have become the old married couple that just watches sitcoms. (Aside from the three on your list we've also got Big Bang Theory and The Simpsons and, well, I guess that's it for now until Chuck comes back [assuming we've watched season 2 of Chuck by then, which I don't see why we wouldn't have as it's plenty of time (now I just want to keep embedding things in here, ignore me!)]. . . light season!) We do enjoy dramas and other hourlong shows, we just tend to watch them in big chunks on DVD.

I will be watching Gossip Girl, Project Runway, Glee, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men, The Office, 30 Rock, FNL (is October when it comes to NBC?). I am also working my way through Weeds on DVD, and plan to start Leverage and Dexter at some point soon.
FNL will be on DirecTV in October. It will air on NBC in...March? Or later.
Yay for Weeds and Leverage and Dexter!

I'll be watching, um... Castle, Grey's Anatomy, Dollhouse, Fringe, Glee, Friday Night Lights, Law and Order: SVU, Medium, The Office, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Supernatural and Dexter. And Chuck and LOST at midseason. And I have one more episode of True Blood left. Damn, I watch too much TV. :P

Tuesdays are always nothing nights. They should shift something over from Thursday to make life easier for people.
Seriously! That used to be Fringe night! Why the hell did they move that to Thursdays??
I'll be watching: Leverage, Gossip Girl (it's cracky fun ngl), True Blood, Psych, The Mentalist, and House (even though I havent watched it since like 2004, I suddenly feel interested again. I wonder how long it'll last heh)Which it makes it seem like I watch very little but I also watch several british shows as they air too (with the magical power of torrents <3) I'm also kinda intrigued by that new USA show coming out in October, White Collar.
I gotta complement you on your tenacity with Heroes though, I dropped it by the end of S1. It's a shame how bad it got as it went on. It really had so much potential.
Oh, I'm watching Leverage too, but since the last episode before hiatus is next week, it doesn't really qualify as a fall show.
I thought Heroes got better and better over the course of the first season, but the second season was a marked drop in quality.
haha I don't know what I'll be able to see with my antennavision now hampered by the weird effects of the digital transition. I just hope we can finally get ABC by the time Lost starts up.
If I could still get Channel 26, I would watch Japanese dorama (if it was interesting - the current one is too bizarrely directed, even though Hiroshi Abe is a cool actor) and Japanese IQ quiz show.
Mondays: just streaming Gossip Girl, waiting for Chuck to come back...
yeah, I think I'll only be watching TV on crazy Thursdays. Which is good, because I don't have classes on Fridays, just 2 internships that don't have homework.
Batman: The Animated Series and watch episodes of Psych
We should just get married.

But where are all of your reality shows? I'll also be watching Survivor, The Amazing Race, and So You Think You Can Dance. (and probably prioritize them over some of the scripted shows, since they're more likely to be spoiled.)
Other goal for the fall: Catch up on Season 3 of LOST before Season 6 starts. (Not that watching them in the order 1, part of 2, 5, 4, 3, 6 is exactly ideal...)
But where are all of your reality shows?
Nowhere to be found! I don't really swing that way.
(Not that watching them in the order 1, part of 2, 5, 4, 3, 6 is exactly ideal...)
That is, indeed, less than ideal.
I hate to tell you this, Sunil, but Mutant Tickyboxes has been officially canceled.
I know everyone contributed to that massive fan campaign, with the facepainted protesters and sending origami to the network offices, but sadly, the efforts were to no avail.
I'm looking forward to Flashforward, what with the people involved and that it's based on a book by an author I interviewed -- Robert J. Sawyer -- who was a really interesting guy and is working with the show too and will be doing a couple of episodes.
I'll be watching Leverage, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, Top Chef, and Flash-Forward if it's good.
Yes, I am enjoying reality shows way more than scripted TV lately.

*sheepish* Don't have television.
Oh no, I'm sorry about your TV situation! Stupid hotels.
I love "The Forgotten" too! That's one of the episodes I actually remembered when I watched it again. I'm almost done with the first season.
