you guys, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. no i’m not talking about christmas, (though apparently there are already christmas decorations for sale at costco), i’m talking about the other most wonderful time of the year: premiere week. the bulk of our favorite shows (and some new ones, too) are finally returning from their summer hiatus (fist pumps). this is what my DVR spends 11 months out of the year training for. heck, i spend 11 months out of the year training for it, too. recording multiple shows on multiple networks all at the same time requires a lot of learned strategy (clearly i don’t have a television-watching problem, you do). so in addition to the already mentioned fox premieres of new girl and the mindy project and of course, the return of survivor, here’s what my tv-watching schedule might look like from here until next may.
monday, september 23rd | premiere of two broke girls (9:00 p.m. on CBS) & premiere of castle (10:00 p.m. on ABC)
tuesday, september 24th | no premieres, regular episodes of i dream of nene (9:00 p.m. on Bravo) & the new atlanta (10:00 p.m. on Bravo)
wednesday, september 25th | for those who watch it (which should be me, i know) nashville premieres at 10:00 p.m. on ABC, no other premieres, just regular episodes of million dollar listing: los angeles (9:00 p.m. on Bravo), top chef masters finale (10:00 p.m. on Bravo) & the challenge: rivals II (10:00 p.m. on MTV)
thursday, september 26th | best premiere night ever, premiere of parks & recreation (8:00 p.m. on NBC), premiere of the millers (new show but it has will arnett in it so sign me up, 8:00 p.m. on CBS), project runway (9:00 p.m.-10:30 p.m. on Lifetime), finale of eat drink love (10:00 p.m. on Bravo) and the biggest/most highly anticipated premiere of them all –PARENTHOOD (10:00 p.m. on NBC)
sunday, september 29th | premiere of the amazing race (8:00 p.m. on CBS)
other shows to look forward in the coming weeks are as follows:
wednesday, october 2nd | premiere of top chef: new orleans (10:00 p.m. on Bravo)
saturday, october 5th | premiere of saturday night live (guest host: miley cyrus!) (11:30 p.m. on NBC)
monday, october 7th | premiere of hart of dixie (8:00 a.m. on CW)
thursday, october 17th | premiere of white collar (matt bomer, be still my beating heart) (9:00 p.m. on USA) & fall premiere of covert affairs (10:00 p.m. on USA)
monday, november 4th | premiere of the real housewives of beverly hills (8:00 p.m. on Bravo) & premiere of vanderpump rules (9:00 p.m. on Bravo)
and i think that about does it. if you have any recommendations and/or general comments, feel free to send them my way. i will not, however, apologize for the above-listed schedule of shows. keep your judgey-mcjudgerson tendencies to yourself, please and thank you. i am well-aware of how rigorous (and questionable) my tv-watching schedule appears and i’m totally okay with it.
so if you need me, i’ll be on my couch. who needs fresh air anyway?
