2012 Fall Tv Lineup

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

I have never been one to watch TV shows while they are actually airing on television. I think I caught a few Friends episodes, but never watched the show until I bought the series and watched the whole 10 years together. Same with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and various other shows. There were a few exceptions of course (LOST, Gossip Girl, The OC). TV shows that I enjoy are usually few and far between. This year happens to be pretty different. Don't get me wrong, I have my usual favorites like The Big Bang Theory and King of the Hill that are viewed on a daily basis. But this year's fall lineup is seriously awesome and I cannot wait for the series DVD to come out! I'm watching it live! I had to sign up for a TV Guide Watchlist just to keep track!
Here is my current weekly lineup:
Mon Oct 8 7:00 PM

Tue Oct 9 7:00 PM

As country-music superstar Rayna Jaymes, Boston-born Connie Britton takes the y'all she perfected as Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights and sets it to music on ABC's highly anticipated Nashville, premiering tonight. Set in the change-on-a-dime music industry, the series charts the fates of veteran Rayna and It Girl Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) as they compete for downloads and dollars. For Rayna, those two things will prove ever more elusive in the next few episodes, as secrets from her personal life begin to threaten her career — and her bandleader ex, Deacon (Charles Esten), grows closer to catty rival Juliette.
Thu Oct 11 7:00 PM
Created by writer/producers Chuck Lorre (of Two and a Half Men) and Bill Prady (of Gilmore Girls) comes The Big Bang Theory, a sitcom that shows what happens when hyperintelligent roommates/physicists Sheldon and Leonard meet Penny, a beautiful woman moving in next door--and realize they know next to nothing about life outside of the lab. Rounding out the crew are the smarmy Wolowitz, who thinks he's as sexy as he is brainy, and Koothrappali, who suffers from an inability to speak in the presence of a woman. The show distinguishes itself by being unafraid to toss scientific references and technobabble into an otherwise standard sitcom, even employing a physicist to keep things accurate. In doing so, it allows Sheldon and Leonard to do for science what Frasier's Crane brothers did for fine dining, art, and opera. Theme Song: "The History of Everything" by Barenaked Ladies.
Buzz Aldrin is set to make a cameo on the Halloween-themed episode that airs on Thursday, Oct. 25, CBS announced Tuesday.
Thu Oct 11 7:00 PM

ABC's supernatural drama 666 Park Avenue drew 5.1 million viewers and a 1.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Sunday, shedding two million viewers and five-tenths from its soft premiere last week. ABC had a down night overall, as Once Upon a Time (11 million, 3.3) and Revenge (8.3 million, 2.6) also dipped several tenths. (How is this possible? Even I am watching it!)
So there you have it. That's a lot of TV....too bad I don't have DVR :(
