I knew eventually something like this comprehensive list of the fall schedule, courtesy of the futon critic would pop up eventually. I love these kinds of list because they prepare me for my inevitable TiVo conflicts, even though I do have a dual tuner.
Here’s my list:
Definitely Tivoing: HIMYM, Prison Break, and Heroes. Same as last year.
Online viewing: Chuck. Assuming NBC runs them online. If they don’t, I may swap how I view with HIMYM, since those do run online.
On probation: Journeyman. Since that NBC Preview show, I’m interested enough to check it out.
Definitely Tivoing: NCIS, The Unit, Beauty & the Geek, Reaper.
Online viewing: Probably NCIS and The Unit, b/c I usually TiNo them and end up watching during my lunch hour.
On probation: Reaper. Checking it out on critical praise alone. I think I saw 3 seconds of a trailer.
Definitely Tivoing: Pushing Daisies, Private Practice, Back to You, Bionic Woman, and Sopranos reruns on A&E
Online Viewing: probably the ABC shows during my lunch, since I’ll watch Bionic Woman first when I get home.
On probation: all four new Wednesday shows. My guess is Back to You will be a hit or miss. I have some faith in Shondra on PP, and Daisies, well, we’ll see if it’s all true buzz or just hype.
Definitely Tivoing: Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, and The Office
Online Viewing:The ABC shows again. ABC has the best online viewing experience of the big 4 networks.
On probation: ER. I didn’t want to watch ER last year, except my sister kept wanting to discuss it, so I would watch, but fast forward through all of it unless Sam (Linda Cardellini) or Neela (Parminder Nagra) were on the screen. Which is not a whole lot. All this to say, I don’t really want to keep watching ER, but my sister will probably talk me back into it.
Definitely Tivoing: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. Please people. Don’t let this show die.
On probation: Moonlight. This show gets one, possibly two chances to win me over before I bail. And it only earned that by casting Jason Dohring.
Definitely Tivoing: Brothers & Sisters, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (January 08)
Online viewing: Brothers & Sisters, because I probably won’t get it till Monday during lunch.
Okay what have I missed? Before you say “Gossip Girl”, I’m not interested. Sorry. And now seeing how ridiculous the amount of TV I watch in a week is, I think I’ll go read a book…
