Fall TV’s THURSDAY Must Watch

I never thought I’d utter these words, but there is simply too much television premiering this week. Why do the networks insist on rolling out the majority of their fall schedules up against eachother? Why not give every network two nights to premiere their new offerings, then let fans decide on which shows they’re going to invest their time in. If a TV Addict like myself can’t handle this — how on earth are mere mortals going to?

Take tonight for instance. Six and a half hours of Must See TV. I still have all of Wednesday and most of Monday stuck on my PVR. I’ll be lucky if I get through tonight’s shows before next week starts. Thank God for the weekend. Here’s hoping BIG SHOTS is as bad as everyone says it is. At least then we’ll get a bit of a break.

    Your Thursday looks just like mine except swap UB for Survivor and add Earl. That’s 7 hours (more than you!). And, to make matters worse, i have class on Thursday nights, so at best i can catch Survivor (i usually watch this first so i don’t hear spoilers the next day) and maybe The Office. Thankfully nothing is usually on Friday nights that is any good so i can play catchup. I am going to try watching Moonlight, although i’m hoping it gets cancelled so that’s less on my plate to watch.

  • Linda… so hilarious. I too have a class on Thursday nights!

    Having seen MOONLIGHT… which I’ll write more about tomorrow. I have a feeling we won’t have to worry about ‘catching’ it too much longer.

    Ooh. Moonlight that bad, eh? I figured I’d at least give it a shot (in case I liked it, and wouldn’t have to be behind). I wasn’t expecting much. With all the radical cast/crew changes it kinda reeked of impending doom. Plus, you know, it’s a complete RIP OFF.

  • Tonight I have 10 hours of tv on. Normally on a Thursday, since Earl is an hour tonight, I’ll have 11, after adding in Scrubs & Supernatural. *cry* lol

  • I liked Big Shots and Moonlight, so they’ll probably be cancelled. 🙂

  • Wow, what a packed week of TV. I’ve caught up to Wednesday night, plus Survivor. Survivor: China’s 2nd episode was a little better. A few people are starting to seem more likable, and they got rid of the wrestling girl with the really annoying tusk-like lip piercings. That alone is an improvement.

    Still have to watch Ugly Betty and Grey’s Anatomy. So, I may come back to comment on those later.

    Did Scrubs premiere this Thursday? I don’t see it on my TiVo. If I remember correctly, The Office was supposed to be an hour long, so I’m assuming Scrubs will premiere next week or even later.
