I am really burning out on Bravo TV. I need some sort of entertaining escape from all the unrest in the world today. Watching bitches fight just doesn’t do it for me. I continue to recap because that’s my job. But I am most excited about the fall season of scripted shows.
Here are a few I’ll be watching, or at least giving a chance this week.
8:00 The Voice NBC RECAPPED BY ERICA
If you have never watched The Voice this is the season to start. Why? Jennifer Hudson. She is going to outshine the other three attention whores this season and it’s going to be glorious. I like to let this show run in the background while working. As usual Erica will be recapping and I will be telling Erica how wrong she is in the comments. I will also be sending her terse emails about proper use of vertical space, avoid the use of ellipses, and using fewer words!!!
8:30 Young Sheldon CBS
CBS is really selling this spinoff of The Big Bang Theory, is about Sheldon as a very young child in high school. I do not watch The Big Bang Theory but the commercials for this boy genius comedy have me recording this for a twenty-minute Saturday afternoon laugh. We’ll see.
10:00 The Good Doctor ABC
All I need to know is that it is from the people who gave me House, one of my favorite shows of all time. It looks like a cross between House and Doogie Howser, MD with a side of Asperger’s.
9:00 Bull CBS
This is a show based loosely on Dr. Phil’s jury selection and management company that he ran before becoming a TV therapist. It’s kind of a crime show but often times you already know who did it. The show is about the jury and how they are manipulated toward the verdict Bull wants. Hearing what the jury is thinking is kind of weird at first. I like the first season. It’s good but not great.
9:00 This Is Us NBC RECAPPED BY PARKER
By far the best new series last season. Parker will be back to recap and/or provide discussion topics for us each week. There will be crying.
8:00 The Blacklist on NBC
I may be over this show. I wasn’t able to DVR it for the full season last year so I am behind on the storyline. I like it though.
8:00 Empire on Fox
I may be over this too. I want to finish it out though and hope this is the last season. May have a recapper in mind.
9:00 Star on Fox
Super excited for this show to return. Love it. So proud of Miss Laurence. It’s still fresh. I might recap this.
10:00 The Good Place NBC
I almost missed this show last season and had to get caught up with On Demand. It’s a very smart, comedy and I LOVE THIS SHOW. It apparently premiered last Wednesday, I am off to watch the premiere as soon as I finish this. This show does not get the attention it deserves.
8:00 Grey’s Anatomy 2 hour premiere CBS
Because I can’t quit this show.
9:00 Will & Grace NBC
Used to love it, not sure if I can love it again. I have a thing about half hour shows. Will watch on Saturdays.
10:00 How To Get Away With Murder CBS
Much like Scandal, which premieres NEXT Thursday at 9, there are too many killers on this show. I liked it better when there was a case every week and the student’s lives were background. Now we have everyone either dead or killing people in between classes. Not sure if I will hang with this or not. I will probably recap this or perhaps just do a Shondaland discussion night on Thursdays, are you interested in that?
8:00 Hell’s Kitchen Fox
I love this show. I think this might be an All Stars season. Perfect Friday night show.
10:00 Blue Bloods
I don’t know why I stopped watching this. Maybe I will start back?
I pare down my fall shows as soon as Hallmark and Lifetime start running their Christmas movies. I love Christmas movies and will watch all of them that I can. Hallmark has 33 NEW ones this season!
