The TV Addict is a creature of habit.
As is the case with most Thursday nights, I generally return home later than usual. Which means invariably staying up until at least 2AM in a desperate scrabble to watch everything. 30 ROCK, THE OFFICE, SCRUBS, GREY’S ANATOMY, UGLY BETTY and SUPERNATURAL. It’s not easy being a TV Addict. Okay it is — it just involved watching A LOT of TV!
Yet recently, I’ve been thinking — what’s the rush? With Holiday repeats upon us and a WGA strike that looks to be never-ending, I’ve got months and months of repeats and reality to fill.
So with apologies to Stephen Colbert [remember him?], I’ve been taking a page from his Number #1 nemisis — the Bear — by starting to stock up on television shows for what’s shaping up to be a long, cold and bitter winter.
In fact, my PVR is virtually full with episodes of CHUCK, JOURNEYMAN and LIFE. So much so that I had to make the difficult choice of erasing a treasured episode of EVERWOOD in order to record last night’s Comedy Night Done Right. Which thankfully turned out to be worth it. 30 ROCK was yet again laugh-out-loud hilarious [I think I’m in love with Tina Fey].
That said, this morning, I’d like to ask my far smarter and better looking readers two simple questions. 1) Have you been stocking up on shows for the boring winter ahead? And 2) What did you think of Thursday Night TV?
