Fall TV Madness: Thursday

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • With Survivor going HD, they have me back for a little while. Everything else we are on the same page.

    Thursday night was the main reason I went from a regular Time Warner DVR to my Media Center. Now I can record 4 shows at the same time. Yes I am an addict!!

    I have a love/hate relationship w/ Thursday nights. I look forward to it because there’s so many good shows, but there are TOO many good shows. I can usually only get in about 3, maybe 3.5 hrs. Tonight is really going to be difficult because GA and Survivor are 2 hrs each. I know i’ll definitely be watching GA live, but not sure what to watch before it. I wish The Office was on at 8pm instead of 9pm.

    I’m just glad I have 2 Tivos to help w/ all the overlaps.

    Thursday isn’t as crowded for me as it used to be. Now a single DVR can pretty much handle what I want to watch, with ABC’s and NBC’s line-ups. I’d also be interested in watching Survivor in HD, but oh well.

  • Andres — Good point, I should probably mention that I am going to PVR SURVIVOR tonight just because of the HD factor.

    I thought I was watching more tv than I was on Thursdays.. but now that I ditched Grey’s (after season 3) and Earl, Thursdays aren’t as crowded. I still watch Betty (but on notice), Office and 30 Rock.

    I really wish DirecTV would figure out a way to get a triple or quad tuner. With AT&T U-verse gaining ground all over the place with their 2HD/2SD total home DVR, that’s some feature competition. But the directv HD quality is hard to beat.

  • Wow, BWS, I am on almost the same page as you are. While I don’t watch the comedies you mentioned (or any comedies, other than Scrubs which doesn’t return for a while), I have also dumped Grey’s Anatomy after last season and will give Ugly Betty one chance to redeem itself.

    If Betty chooses either Henry or Gio, I will probably be done with that show. If she chooses to be single for a while, then I might actually watch a few more episodes.

    So, for me, Thursdays are actually pretty light. Just Survivor and Betty, and soon, perhaps, only Survivor.

  • Not the Thursday night I was expecting, only one show has caught my eye and that’s because I am a huge fan, namely Survivor, maybe I will check out Ugly Betty or Grey’s A…

  • Josh C.

    wow to everyone who dumped grey’s youre really missing out……..i feel sorry for you lol

  • Josh Emerson

    I agree, you’re missing out! Season 3 of Grey’s did suck, but I think last season it got back on track and based on the previews, that should continue this season. I’m looking forward to tonight’s premiere.

    No Earl? Really?

    I watched the season finale of Grey’s last May and lots of people gushed over it… but I still didn’t like it. No offense to anyone who does like it; it just doesn’t do it for me anymore. My problem with the show has always been that each character’s flaws feel so major that I just don’t like any of them. No need to feel sorry for me. I’m happy about my decision!

    The early word on the street is that Betty has a strong first few episodes so I’m holding out for a sophomore slump recovery.

    I am curious to where ABC will drop Scrubs. It won’t be able to compete against its old night because LOST will replace Life on Mars midseason.

    you are actually considering watching what looks like a train wreck of a show, kath & kim? ouch.
