What Are You Thankful For: TV Edition

With Thanksgiving a mere day away, we at theTVaddict.com thought now would be the perfect time to give our readers the opportunity to post the obligatory “What You’re Thankful For…”

But remember. The key here is that this is theTVaddict.com, not theFEELGOODSAPPYTHANKGIVINGaddict.com. So we don’t want to hear that any of you are thankful for your loving family, great friends, peace on earth yadda, yadda, yadda!

What we want to know is what you’re really thankful for! You know, important stuff like your new 42″ Panasonic Viera HDTV (also known as, what this TV Addict is thankful for!). Or the fact that the current economic crisis finally brought with it the low prices so that you could actually afford your new 42″ HDTV!

Other TV Addict ‘approved’ things to be thankful for include the January return of LOST, NIP/TUCK, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and DAMAGES, record ratings for SMALLVILLE & SUPERNATURAL, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, your PVR/DVR/TiVo, a full season pick-up for CHUCK and/or the overall general awesomeness that is Neil Patrick Harris.

Now that you’ve got the idea, post away and be sure to check back with theTVaddict.com tomorrow (on a scheduled Turkey break of course) to see if your post was featured.

  • TVFan

    Stuff I’m thankful for: Evangeline Lily, Life on Mars, The Walker Family, Gabriel Solice, and Showtime. OMG Dexter has been amazing this season!

    I’m so thankful NBC gave “Days” a renewal only to see 2 of it’s biggest stars given the boot. I’m so thankful ABC has cancelled “pushing daisies” and I’ll be lucky to see the final eps. Oh thankful, I’m thankful for the shows that aren’t axed that I watch. Gossip Girl, Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, and the coming seasons of “Lost” and “NIp/ Tuck.” And I loved the season one of “true blood.” Long live TV in all it’s glory. Good and bad.

    I am thankful that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was picked up for the full season and then moved out of the Monday slot that was killing the show.

  • I am thankful that Friday Night Lights is coming back to network TV.

    I am thankful for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles which started out good and has only gotten better…even if I am one of the only people who knows it.

    I am thankful for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert being part of “the national conversation.”

    I am thankful for the new Sports Night DVDs, a dream come true, and I remain thankful for my DVDS of the first four seasons of West Wing.

    I am thankful for Craig Ferguson. Of all the TV talk show hosts, he’s the one I’d most like to actually talk to.

    I am thankful for Bones & Booth, one of the best male-female relationships on television.

    I am thankful for Greg House, a real American idol.

    I’m thankful for the most amazing thing: GOSSIP GIRL and lost, supernatural and bbt

  • Kellie

    TV on DVD. Greatest. Invention. Ever.

  • Josh Emerson

    30 Rock. I’m thankful that it has returned, that it’s as hilarious as ever, and that it is getting its best ratings ever.

    I’m SO thankful Sarah Palin is not our Vice President-Elect. This is TV related as it means soon we won’t have to see her much anymore until 2012.

    I’m also thankful for Chuck, Dexter, How I Met Your Mother.

  • blueberry

    I’m thankful for Pushing Daisies.

    Im thankful for showtime
    Im thanful for the return of battlestar and nip/tuck omg so thakful for nip/tuck
    Most of all im thankful for the 17 hours (omg thats a lot) of tv i watch weekly and for having the time to watch it.

  • Kristen

    I’m thankful for On Demand and online streaming, because being one of those amish people that don’t have a DVR , they make it so much easier to stay caught up. I’m also thankful that music plays such a big part in tv now, because music supervision will be my future career.

  • ewanspotter

    I’m thankful that Dean Winchester is out of Hell.

  • Josh Emerson

    I’m thankful for big TV on DVD sales. I just ordered Supernatural Season 3 for only $14.99 from Best Buy! Even with tax and shipping it’s still way cheaper than the usual price. Finally I can catch up on the show. I haven’t watched really since S2.

  • Linda B.

    I’m thankful for my 2 DVRs. Massive television watching – especially Thursday nights – would be impossible w/o them.

    I’m also thankful for my 4 chows who keep me company while watching massive amounts of tv. They never complain 🙂

  • Dramadaddy

    I’m thankful for bit torrent technology which let’s this tvaddict keep up with everything on TV while driving all over the country in a big ole truck

  • I am eternally grateful for TiVo — best TV-related invention since the TV itself (although the remote control comes close).

    I am thankful for Chuck, Term.: tSCC, Prison Break, House, Stargate: SG-1, and other current favorite shows.

    I am thankful that Lost and Battlestar Galactica are returning in 2009. Although not as crazy about them as most people are, I am invested in them and very curious where their stories will go (in the case of BSG, how it will end). Oh yeah, Rescue Me returns in 2009 too.

    I am thankful that Boston Legal got warning that this would be their last season so that they can have a proper series finale (although I’d be more thankful if this season were as good as last season).

    I am thankful that The Shield had a really good series finale this past Tuesday night.

    Although disappointed that this is the last season of Stargate: Atlantis, I am thankful that the new show Stargate Universe will be starting in 2009.

    I am thankful that Bravo is repeating The West Wing and that the two episodes from Tuesday were In the Shadow of Two Gunmen, Parts 1 & 2, two of the series’ best episodes.

    I am likewise thankful that FX reruns The Practice on weekends.

    I will be thankful some day if 20th Century Fox ever releases seasons 2 thru 4 of Picket Fences on DVD.

    I am thankful that a local blogger in North Carolina pointed out the recent 10 year anniversary of Babylon 5’s series finale, giving me more nostalgic motivation to re-watch on DVD sometime soon the *best TV show ever*.

    I am thankful that Survivor has two seasons per calendar year. Hopefully the next season, probably not far off, will be better and make up for the current season which sucks.

    This is a weird one, I admit… I am thankful that PBS (or at least my local PBS affiliate; not sure how that works) is repeating the current season of The New Yankee Workshop so that I can store on TiVo the 9-part series on kitchen cabinets, which I only caught one or two episodes of the first time around.

    And, I am thankful for TheTVAddict.com, one of my favorite sites that I check virtually every day.

  • Nick

    I’m thankful for the outspoken Rosie O’Donnell…..but seriously have to question who assembled her variety show debut. There wasn’t ONE single act that interested me (other than to see if Liza was gonna meltdown). The “jokes” were awful, the actors and schticks were stilted (the door?…c’mon)…Clay Aiken’s very appearance sickened me….

    I had such high hopes for the show, as Rosie has always been a fan of nostalgia I grew up with (Carol Burnett, etc.). But this execution was horrendous, and I hope Rosie is not all to blame.

  • SimplyKimberly

    I am thankful that I will finally know the identity of the final Cylon.

    I am thankful that shirtless Sawyer will once again grace my television.

    I am thankful that Tony Almeida will rise from the dead and that 24 will finally show the 7th worst day of Jack Bauer’s life.

    But I am most thankful that Joss Whedon will once again have a tv series and that it is headlined by Eliza Dushku. Yes, I know, it is on FOX and therefore destined to break my heart. But the power of Joss compels me to watch.


    I to am thankful that Dean Winchester is out of Hell.

    I am thankful to Eric Kripke for an amazing season of Supernatural

    I am also thankfull for all of supernatural because it is the best show ever created (even though it is under appritianted)
