Fall TV

Gustav brought us a lot of rain and cool temps. It's in the 60's here today. WHAT?
So now I'm really in fall mode. It's cool, I'm listening to ESPN radio soaking up all the football talk and I've been working on my TV viewing schedule.

I'll admit it - I LOVE TV. We DVR everything and watch it when we can but I love having shows to watch - especially ones that Scott and I like to watch together.

Here are the shows I'm most excited about:

1. Biggest Loser (my #1)
2. Amazing Race
3. The Office
4. Gray's Anatomy
5. Private Practice
6. And I'm going to try and watch 90210

Of course I can't wait for January to start back with Lost, the Bachelor, and American Idol.

What show are you most excited about????

Bryan and I both like to watch The Offie. And, I too am going to try the first episode of 90210. I just want to make sure I dont' miss the season premier of either one of these. I need to find out the date and write it on the calendar so I don't plan anything on those nights!!! We still live in the dark ages with TV so we don't have a DVR!!!! I SO MISS AMERICAN IDOL!!!

Alyce said...

I love me some DVR. I fell in love w/ Biggest Loser last season so I am looking forward that. WE are big LOST fans and that is about the only show we watch together.

Kelli said...

We just started watching The Office and LOVE it! I hope we can catch up on all the seasons before it starts!! BUT I am most excited about the spring for LOST!!!!

Gracie Beth said...

I am so very excited that Gossip Girl came back and that we are finally getting Private Practice back after almost a year long hiatus.

can't wait for the office!

Lauren said...

Oh... SO excited about Biggest Loser and The Office. I am also excited to check out that new show that's a spin off of The Office. I think it looks hilarious!

Meg @ Spicy Magnolia said...

I've been craving a fresh, fall line-up forever! These were the ones I listed at the end of July...I mean, I've REALLY been craving some fresh stuff! :) Samantha Who?
Grey's Anatomy
Lost
The Office
24 (which I know doesn't start until the spring, but gotta put it on here!)
Dancing with the Stars
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
Desperate Housewives (I was intrigued by the season finale)

Heather said...

My list is almost identical to yours, except I don't watch the office...and I do watch "House" on Fox.
I can't wait for Grey's and Private Practice...and I LOVE the biggest loser, too! My hubby and I have watched Amazing Race together since the first season, I think!!! :)

SASSY said...

LOVE me some Amazing Race! I think if hubby and I went, we'd kill each other..ha!

I also love Gray's - good stuff!

Melissa said...

The Biggest Loser is my favorite show too! Next is Desperate Housewives (I'm a little embarrassed to admit it--it is a little trashy), The Office, Friday Night Lights, and October Road. I heard October Road got canceled though! :-(

Julia said...

1.) The Office
2.) Heroes
3.) Chuck
4.) LOST (although it's not coming back until Jan.)
5.) Fall cooking shows on TFN...I LOVE to watch Paula Deen, Ina Garten and other chefs make Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff!!!
6.) College Football Gameday!!!

Shannon said...

I love the Office and Grey's but Amazing Race really stresses me out! :) I get so nervous for them so I can't watch that one. I'm so excited about all the shows coming back!

Rathi said...

I love those shows, though i don't watch the office! I also like DWTS. I heard the Bachelor this season is Jason, the one that Deanna did not pick! I'm also glad that Private Practice is coming back.. In a few weeks the shows are going to start, and finally after a summer of reruns.. Hope you are having a great Thursday!

Angela said...

I love Amazing Race, Desperate House Wives, Brothers and Sisters, Greys Anatomy, and House.
I want to see what The Office is all about, never watched it. Heard lots of good things about it.
90210 already premiered, Tuesday. But I think they are playing it tonight again. It got mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it for what it was. I didn't expect much more than what the show used to be.

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

I forgot about The Amazing Race. I love that one...I am off to check to TV schedule to see when it is on so I can make a mental note. Thanks!

SLS said...

First off, your day sounds lovely! Football, ESPN, the weather! =)
I am just happy the reruns will be gone. But I guess my favorite shows are Desperate Housewives, Greys Anatomy, ESPN College Gameday and How I Met Your Mother.

And I so agree with you, knowing what you are having makes it feel much more real! Oh and I have been meaning to ask you about the maternity jeans, where did you get them, are they a particular brand?
Hope you are having a good day! Enjoy that Fall weather!

Meredith said...

Russell and I are hooked on The Biggest Loser too! We also love Grey's Anatomy. Fall is quickly approaching!!!

Whitney said...

Survivor! I cannot wait for Survivor! We have Survivor parties here! I am also excited about Biggest Loser and American Idol, Greys Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. Last, but certainly not least - The Office. There are a couple of the new shows I want to watch, too. The Mentalist and My Own Worst Enemy.
I wish it was 60 here!

Melissa said...

Kelly,

My favorite is also The Biggest Loser. I just lost over 30 pounds...so it keeps me inspired! That is really about it...I watch Fox News, especially with the Republican Coverage right now.

Hugs,
Melissa

Megan L Hutchings said...

You sound like me! Web and I DVR everything and watch things when we can! Some of our favorites are...

LOST, CSI, Gray's Anatomy, Private Practice, John & Kate, Without a Trace, and I am trying to get him to watch The Biggest Loser!

Mom to 2 Angels said...

We are big Biggest Loser fans, too. Followed closely by the Amazing Race.

Hillary said...

Now, onto the shows:

Survivor, Amazing Race, American Idol, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice....I am certain there is more, but I can't think right now.

Brittany said...

I hear ya, as much as I love being active outside, I also love being inside, under my favorite quilt, watching all the new Fall shows!

I have House and Grey's Anatomy on my calendar!

Grey's Anatomy + 2 hour season premier = LOVE!

The Garners said...

Biggest Loser, Amazing Race, The Office, 24, Criminal Minds...I'm ready for good tv, too!

Joelle said...

Did you watch 90210? it was horrible i thought! i only lasted about 10 mins. i am most excited about survivor, biggest loser, and yes, i can admit it.. americas next top model (know to us regulars as ANTM). but january will be way better with the three shows you mentioned! of course, i am still mourning the "loss" of so you think you can dance.

Gennae Heer said...

I love my DVR too! I am really looking forward to the Biggest Loser. My 12 year old son likes to watch it with me (one of the only family friendly shows left). I also watch The Office, Friday Night Lights and The Hills.

Amy said...

THE AMAZING RACE!

our neighborhood all gets together to watch and each person picks a team and bets a dollar on them. the winner gets the pot...

all $10 bucks or whatever!

it's fun though! 'hood spreads and amazing race!

Cindy said...

Grey's, Private Practice, LOST, How I Met Your Mother. Love those shows. I'm ready for some good TV.

Honea Household said...

Definitely American Idol. And I want to watch Biggest Loser. I've never watched it, but I've heard it's pretty emotional. And I loved Hopkins while it was on. I wish another show like that would come on.

Katie said...

The Office and 30 Rock!!

Mandi said...

We are big fans of The Office...you gotta love all the craziness that comes with Michael and Dwight!!! Unfortunately we don't get NBC so we have to watch the "webisodes" on the NBC website.

Lauren Kelly said...

Kelly- Unfortunately I have school three nights a week so I can't consistently watch my fav. TV shows and I don't have a DVR :( But I am a Law & Order: SVU fanatic and can't wait till the season premiere.

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

BIGGEST LOSER! Addicted to it. That's our favorite show!

Faith said...

Definitely looking forward to The Office and Chuck (so funny!). We're into Prison Break too and it has already come back on! Yay!

Christy said...

So, did you DVR the premiere of 90210 Tuesday night? I finally got to watch it last night and I think I'm hooked - if for no other reason than Kelly & Brenda! My "must see tv" list is so long but it's on my "tv" blog along with season premiere dates!

Tracy said...

DVR is the best thing ever! Especially since I have a two year old and can only watch when she is napping or asleep for the night.

I love your top three - Biggest Loser, the Office and Amazing Race as well as Ugly Betty and the Bachelor when it is on (can not wait for Jason to be the bachelor!!!). Oh, and The Hills is my guilty pleasure but it seems so much more scripted this season than ever before. Oh well!

Amber said...

Fall can't come soon enough :)

a cowgirl at heart said...

Amazing Race, Big Brother, Biggest Loser, and our very favorite is LOST!!! I love that it is on when other shows aren't, too, don't you? I would love to do the Amazing Race with my hubby but I'm so scared we wouldn't like each other afterwards...lol!

Brandy said...

BROTHERS & SISTERS greatest show on tv!

Scrapper Mom said...

I have to admit, The Biggest Loser is one of my favs. It always gets me motivated to lose weight. And I love, love, love the Bachelor. So, I'm with you...here's to TV!!

Carolyn said...

I LIVE for The Office. September 25th couldn't come any sooner!!!
Love your blog.

Becky said...

Definately THE OFFICE! I looove that show! When is the premiere of Biggest Loser???

Jenna said...

You are so speaking my language right now. :) Love all those you listed!!!

Kimberly said...

I used to LOVE LOST! Dh and I would watch faithfully each Thursday or at least Tivo it and then zoom through the commercials later.:)

About a year ago,we got rid of our cable. I knew it would be so hard at first as I'd always fold all my laundry in front of the TV. Honestly, we just became convicted about some of what we were watching and the time the tv consumed. Most shows did not honor the Lord and I realized I was sort of addicted to it. I realize this decision isn't for everyone but it's amazing how much more we sit and talk now and read, etc. Sorry, didn't mean for this to become an anti-tv comment.;) lol! I do still miss LOST though!

Natalie said...

I absolutely LOVE THE OFFICE! Just bought season 4 on DVD when it released this Tuesday. I visit Pam's myspace pretty frequently and officetally.com, too. Completely obsessed with the show. Pam's page: www.myspace.com/pambeesley

Rebecca Taylor said...

Lost, 24, and Desperate Housewives....as trashy as it is!

The Graves said...

Love The Office! Hubby even wants a Jim and Pam wedding!!! Fall is just meant to be enjoyed cuddled up in front of the tv some nights huh? So glad we have a DVR so no more of those... commercials. Love checking out your blog - very upbeat!

Jenna said...

Oh and I forgot this earlier, but I heard a rumor that Daddy Jason from the DeAnna Era is going to be the next Bachelor! That would make me extremely happy - he was so sweet!

MiMi said...

Faith and Chad got us hooked on The Office - can't wait for it to start again! We are HUGE Prison Break fans and 24 fans.
Love DVR!!! Never watch a commercial any more.

Jacquie said...

You already know my TV favorites... but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Biggest Loser. I keep rewinding to see the exercises Bob and Jillian have them do! Love that!

I'm also looking forward to Amazing Race and House. With only 4 people left in the BB House... I'm going to have some nights free for new TV soon. (Tyler wants to apply for Big Brother)

Janelle said...

I'm completely with you on: Grey's and Private Practice.

I also like Desperate..haven't watched the new 90210 (I forgot it was on the other night!) I used to watch all the old ones, so i'll probably end up watching this one too!

TriciaNae said...

The Office...and The Biggest Loser!!!

Anonymous said...

Love the DVR. We just switched our provider and the DVR is on backorder!! IT is driving me CRAZY!! I LOVE The Amazing Race, The Office, Want to watch 90210 but without a DVR not sure that will happen, One Tree Hill (don't ask!), How I Met Your Mother, Biggest Loser. I think thats about it. But until we get the DVR I don't know how much I'll get to watch any of these! But I LOVE Fall and am so excited with the weather we have been having here too!

Kelly,
Since you are such a fan, I wanted to share something very cool with you. This season, a precious woman on staff at our church and her daughter were selected for the show. Her name is Renae and her daughter is Michelle and they have an amazing story. You will definitely want to be pulling for them.

In May, Jillian from the BL came to our church and told her live on stage! It was so exciting to see her reaction. About two weeks ago she came back home, and she looks amazing. She shared with me that this was the hardest and most wonderful thing she has ever done. She gives all the glory to God and she was able to share her own story of redmption and love with so mant because of it.

So, thought I'd give you some inside scoop on who your favorite team will be this fall! (By the way, she said as hard as they make it look on TV, it was actually 100 times harder!) I'll definitely be watching this season.

Kasey Hunt said...

I am looking forward to the office as well. It's such a funny, awkward show!!!

Anonymous said...

I think that I'll watch DWTS because I'm a Misty May-Treanor fan. Maybe the next season of American Idol ...
