Hi, My Name Is Jenn and I Love TV

It is true, I love TV. I am not talking like I can not live without TV or I must watch it for 10 hours a day and do nothing else (though if I did choose to watch TV for 10 hours one day and do nothing else I would not feel ashamed); it is more like I find it relaxing and I like to be entertained for a few hours each night. Sure I could find other things to do during the week like working out, reading, cleaning, working on projects around the house but keeping up with the Kardashian’s, seeing another one of Michael’s stunts in the Office, watching House solve another medical mystery while trying to be devoid of any emotional connection with people, relating to the Theories of Leonard & Sheldon, or patiently waiting to see just HOW he met their mother seems far more interesting than anything I could do around the house.

So I say bring on the shows! Seriously, what is going on with new shows this week….it is f’n fantastic! I forgot new shows started up again after the first of the year and was pleasantly surprised Sunday night when I looked at the upcoming recordings and every day had new shows set to record! However, is anyone else’s DVR (’s) full because of all the new shows on this week, or is the H. household the only family addicted to TV? Seriously, if you need me I will be watching TV because I am at 85% on the DVR (’s)…dang HD.

So, what am I watching? Well since we are recording over 40 series between our two DVR’s (yeah, I know) I will just list my 5 favorite TV programs that are currently on.

1. ChuckNew season started this week. Three shows in 2 days, suh-weeeet! I love this show…. Oh, and I totally have a crush on Adam Baldwin. (Firefly/Serenity, anyone?!) Sigh
2. Supernatural Second half of the season starts January 21
3. BonesNew episode tonight!
4. PsychNew season starts January 27
5. FringeNew episode tonight!

Honorable mentions (did you really think I could just list 5 shows.)

Favorite reality show: Tough Love. This show is awesome. Steve is awesome!

Favorite new show: Modern Family. I just started watching this a few weeks ago and I love it!

Favorite program that is currently on air: Dr. Who. It is on BBC. It is the perfect amount of sci-fi, humor, cheesyness, drama, and suspense on TV. Just wish David Tennant wasn’t leaving.

What are your favorite shows right now?


  1. LOVE Tough Love. I find it refreshing that he actually seems to care about the girls, but doesn't let them get away with ANYTHING.

    I actually just wrote something for my blog about Chuck that's set to post, I think, today. I'm disappointed in this season, I must admit. But hoo-boy -- am I with you on the Adam Baldwin train. Yum.

  2. I am interested in reading your Chuck post! I think the entire back and forth relationship is getting old and I also don't know how I feel about HIM having the is a bit weird. But I still loves me the show even if it means just getting to see Adam for a bit!!

    Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill, Vampire Diaries, The Closer, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practive, Criminal Minds, Bones, Fringe, Medium, Lost, Ghost Whisperer, Greek & True Blood

  4. I love this post - I am sick this week and was thinking about how much I love staying at home and channel surfing - it's the BEST!

    Tough Love is really good and I like it when Steve gives the girls the BUSINESS! He says the things we are all yelling at the TV.

    Guilty pleasure: The Kardashians! I have two sisters so the sister dynamic is so interesting to me among their INSANE world!

    Can't wait for 24 to be back on!!

  5. First, I worship the show Chuck. I also was in love with Adam Baldwin until I found out he's a republican douchebag. Seriously, I hate to say that, but I started following his tweets, and he's a republican. Blech.

    Lover supernatural, Bones, and I watch Smallville instead of Fringe. I think. I forget. So I have to watch online. Why can't we get paid to watch TV?

  6. Jon is totally into Bones right now. I am currently obsessed with Top Gear, but since we aren't british i have to watch it illegally on the laptop. Scandalous.

    I used to LOVE Lost but it has been banned in our house ever since Charlie died.

  7. I LOVE Top Gear! We have BBC America (Thank Goodness) and I love nearly all the shows on BBCA. I don't even like cars that much but Tope Gear is hilarious!

    Dusty, I would be fantastic at watching TV if I got paid for it! What a great job. (I am sorry about Adam, I will just look at him and nothing else...thanks for the warning)

  8. I LOOOOOVE television. More than I probably should. The following are shows I love watching:

    Chuck, Supernatural, Psych, Tough Love, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Project Runway, Doctor Who, Dexter, The Office, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Real Housewives of Orange County... I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
