TV Obsession- My Fall TV Lineup

I make it no secret that I love TV. Always have. Always will. Are there other things I could be doing with my time? Of course, but there are also so many things that I DO while watching TV. I'm the ultimate multitasker, right?

I'm a little sad this year as so many of the shows I have been addicted to for years are coming to an end: Desperate Housewives, All My Children and Brothers & Sisters which is already done. I'm sure many others won't be too far behind. I've been keeping an eye on the new fall lineup for something that might catch my eye and here is what I will be watching this fall season:

The Sing Off: What can I say? I'm a sucker for music and an even bigger sucker for a capella music. The best thing about this show is there is no faking it. If even one person in the group sucks or is off, it'll bring the whole act down. It is just real, raw talent. The Sing-Off is hosted by Nick Lachey and the judges are Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men) and Sara Bareilles (LOVE her!!!).

Hawaii Five-0: With many of the old Lost cast joining into this fun, I have to say, I got a little addicted. Not to mention I love Scott Caan. I'm always on the edge of my seat watching this show and will be looking forward to the new season. Still trying to get my husband into it... he's not biting so far. Hot chicks and hot cars? I don't get my man sometimes.

Glee: Total Gleek here, what can I say? I used to be one. It is my destiny to watch this show. I have to admit I'll be watching to see where they take it. While I kind of enjoyed all of the "guests" from the last season, the story line really took a digger. I hope they can recapture some of its former magic.

(NEW this fall)- New Girl: I'm intrigued by this show. I love Zooey Deschanel in the movies, so what isn't there to love about her on TV? Plus, I love the premise of the show- an unlucky in love elementary school teacher leaves her crappy boyfriend and moves in with 3 unruly (cute) guys. Sounds like it could be fun and I will give it a shot.

90210: This one I'm a little embarrassed about, but I got sucked in being a fan of the ORIGINAL so I couldn't help but be sucked into this one. While it doesn't quite have the same appeal as the original, they actually had some great storylines and interesting characters. Usually lands on the bottom of my DVR list as shows to catch up on.

(NEW this fall)- The X Factor: Okay... now, as an Idol fan, I am of course intrigued by this show. I got a little tired of the whole Simon Cowell/Paula Abdul thing towards the end of their Idol run so I'm on the fence on whether or not I will even care for this. It better offer something more exciting than Idol or I won't give it a second thought. I'm definitely out if they have their Pepsi cups sitting in front of them. Ugh to the product placement. Then again, I'm watching Karaoke Battle USA right now... Yikes. I need help.  

(NEW this fall)- Up All Night: My husband and I immediately latched on to the hilarity of the commercials for this show not to mention a love for both Christina Applegate and Will Arnett. I have a feeling we will be able to relate to this comedy on many levels and are excited to watch this one!

Modern Family: Been a fan of the show since day 1. It is one that my husband and I save to watch for our DVR night on the weekend. We even bought the first season on DVD. My husband seems to have taken to Phil. The comparison is scary.

America's Next Top Model: Guilty. Pleasure. I've been watching this stupid show for forever and I can't seem to break the addiction.

Parks & Recreation: Another DVR night favorite. It took me a couple seasons to convince my husband that this show is hilarious but he is now as addicted to it as I am and has taken on many Ron Swanson-isms.

The Office: Yet ANOTHER DVR night fave. We own every season of The Office on DVD and have watched it religiously for years. Yes. I cried when Pam & Jim got married. Will be interesting to see what happens without Steve Carell at the helm but excited to see what James Spader will bring to the mix.

Grey's Anatomy/Private Practice: Two of my long-standing favorites I have been watching for years. Kinda feel like they deserved to be lumped into the same category given the amount of crossover between the two shows. As always, I will be watching.

Shark Tank: My husband and I are crazy chickens who love this show. If you watch it, you know what I'm talking about. We find it fascinating to see what the next "big" thing could be and how much (or little) the investors are willing to give someone for their ideas.

Blue Bloods: A drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Freaking awesome cast (Tom Selleck- Holla!) and of course: Donnie Wahlberg. Nuff said.

Desperate Housewives: Last season. I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Yes. This is a totally crazy amount of TV. Would you believe me if I said, it comes after everything else? After the kiddo goes to bed. After working out. 99% of it gets DVR'd and doesn't get watched until after the fact. I'm addicted but I'm not totally crazy. Would I watch these shows if I had to sit through them live? Nope. If I can't fast-forward through the crap, I wouldn't be interested at all.
