With Webster’s Dictionary defining ‘addict’ as “a person who is addicted to an activity, habit, or substance” this TV Addict has made the difficult decision to put the ‘TV’ in theTVaddict.com up for sale.
This is not a decision I’ve reached lightly, but the networks have quite literally given me no choice. I mean how on earth can one seriously call themselves a bona-fide TV Addict when they’re no longer addicted to television?
June hasn’t been easy.
Since collecting my jaw off the floor following LOST’s May 29th finale this TV Addict has gone from a weekly schedule that reached into the double digits to five shows which include IN PLAIN SIGHT, SWINGTOWN, PASSWORD, WEEDS and THE SECRET DIARY OF A CALL GIRL.
Which brings me to how exactly this TV Addict has been filling the ridiculously large void left by not feeling compelled to catch the latest episodes of AMERICAN GLADIATORS, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, THE BABY BORROWERS and THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.
TheITUNESaddict: Thanks to iTunes, I’m one episode away from completing the most surprisingly entertaining new series of the season. Not only was ABC Family’s GREEK the perfect balance of compelling stories and interesting Cartwrights, Cappie, Calvin, Chambers… errr, I mean characters. It proved that a show’s college are anything but boring. Here’s hoping the GOSSIP GIRL and 90210 show-runners are taking studious notes.
TheBOOKaddict: If there’s silver lining to Susanne Daniels stepping down from her post as LifeTime Network President, it’s that perhaps she’ll have a little more free time to write more fantastic books like SEASON FINALE. Co-written by Variety’s Cynthia Littleton, SEASON FINALE gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the rise and [unfortunate] fall of the WB and UPN networks. Offering a first-hand account about everything from the heated rivalry between the two netlets to insider stories from how such TV Addict favorites such as DAWSON’S CREEK, GILMORE GIRLS, SMALLVILLE and FELICITY came to be. SEASON FINALE is truly must read TV and well worth the the$17.99 on Amazon.
ThePODCASTaddict: Admittedly I’m a bit of a ‘MAC’ fanboy, but thanks to the brilliance of iTunes and Apple TV, this TV Addict helped pass the time on a rainy Sunday by catching up on some installments of LARRY KING LIVE. Fantastic guests like Steve Carell, Kathy Griffin and Jerry Seinfeld who joined Bill Maher, Roseanne and Lewis Black in a special Tribute to George Carlin more than make up for the fact that Larry King is perhaps the most ill-prepared and clueless interviewer in the business.
TheREELaddict: Okay, so theREELaddict.com already exists, but lately that’s exactly was this TV Addict is turning into. I mean who needs TV when movie theaters are filled with remakes of TV classics like GET SMART and big-screen reunions like SEX AND THE CITY? Not to mention WANTED and WALL-E, featuring the unbeatable one-two-three combo of Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy and an adorable robot named WALL-E
