The TV Addict Goes on Hiatus (Again!)

Hiatus Day 1: The TVA goes ATV’ing

Are you ready to find an ulterior method of procrastination during your work/school day? This TV Addict certainly hopes so, because I’m outta here!

After three years of virtually daily postings [with the exception of weekends and that dark period following EVERWOOD’s cancellation] I’ve once again decided to take some of my mother’s childhood advice to heart, shut off that damn “idiot box” and give those those so-called great outdoors.

Is the Grand Canyon all that it’s cracked up to be? Does what happen in Vegas really stay in Vegas? Stay Tuned.

And in the meantime, feel free to visit some of my fantastic fellow TV Bloggers [see links below] and take solace in the fact that upon my return, you’ll all be treated to a first hand account direct from’s first ever appearance at the Television Critic’s Association Press Tour. Plus, wall-to-wall Comic Con coverage.

After watching the long-awaited DVD release of The State: The Complete Series, Marisa was pleasantly surprised to see how well the show stood the test of time. (TiFaux)

For us, the summer is all about SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. If you’re a fan, check out the latest SYTYCD Edition of The TV Talk Podcast with GMMR & Ducky. We talk performances, the 100th ep & why we love/hate Katie Holmes. (The TV Talk Podcast)

After Mischa Barton’s mental and physical issues, Matt is glad the CW working on a contingency plan for The Beautiful Life. (TV Fanatic)

It is the battle of the covers with American Idol‘s Brooke White, singing Kings of Leon’s Use Somebody, taking on newcomer Aimee Allen who puts her spin on Santeria by Sublime. (Scooter McGavin’s 9th Green)

Vance wanted no hate for the remaining Top 8 dancers, but he felt the Cancer Dance was a little manipulative on So You Think You Can Dance (Tapeworthy)

Buzz wondered if TV series reboots like 90210 and Melrose Place are better or worse off for bringing back old characters. (BuzzSugar)

And when I do find internet access, like in this beautiful motel 6 in the middle of nowhere USA on route to the grand canyon, I’ll definitely be doing my best to update when I can. And yes, I realize full well that I may in fact be addicted to blogging!
