Do you not have enough time in the day to watch everything you want on TV?
Is there so much on each night that you don’t know what to select and therefore forego it all together?
My favorite: Do you find something on the networks that you really do like and then all of a sudden it’s removed without so much as an explanation?
It goes without saying that I’m addicted to television. Many of you don’t have the time to watch more than a couple of hours of TV a night, if that much, and I want to use my addiction to help you. My friends laugh at the amount of television I watch. I love TV! I personally feel the DVR is the best invention since the Internet, and I put it the test. My AT&T U-Verse DVR records up to four shows at a time! You think I’m crazy? Join the club.
Every Tuesday I’ll introduce more shows and sometimes I will even provoke thought. Since this is my first edition of Tiffany’s Tele-Tuesday, I’m going to keep it simple and start with my favorite shows on each network, in no particular order. Due to the inordinate amount of television that I follow, I will break this into two parts.
ABC – Detroit 187. I used to love NYPD Blue and ABC launched a new show this year starring Christopher Moltisanti, I mean, Michael Imperioli, as a top Detective in Detroit with secrets and quirks. Detroit 187 reminds me a lot of NYPD Blue, and as the season progressed I enjoyed it more and more. Warning – ABC has already aired the season finale.
CBS – This is tough. I believe CBS might be the best network out there. I don’t miss an episode of Criminal Minds or any of the three CSI shows. CBS even wins for the network with the best new shows in 2010-2011 as far as I’m concerned: Hawaii 5-0, The Defenders, and Blue Bloods. If you’re one of those that don’t know what to watch, tune your set to CBS and just let it run while you cook, clean, read, whatever it is you do from 7pm-10pm CST.
In the meantime, I promised a favorite so I choose….Survivor. I can’t resist watching who can Outwit, Outlast, and Outplay each other. Every season promises pure entertainment and crazy people. This season, the show introduced Redemption Island. I absolutely love the new twist in the game. Go ahead, watch. Is this season’s Philip really a former federal agent? Oh, and I’m Team Boston Rob.
CW –Supernatural. Brothers, Sam & Dean Winchester save the world from demons, vampires, shape-shifters, the Apocalypse, etc. Did I mention that Dean loves classic rock? Best Supporting Character? The music!
FOX – Bones. Do you like mysteries? Forensics? Did you watch Buffy or Angel and develop a crush on David Boreanaz? Bones follows one of the best forensic pathologists lacking most social skills, and her partner, a former military sniper and current FBI agent, as they solve murders. Is there sexual tension? TONS! You can’t help but fall in love with Booth and Bones. Warning – Don’t watch the show when you’re eating dinner!
NBC – Chuck. Pure Monday night fun. Chuck is half 007 and half geek. I can’t remember the last time an episode ended and I didn’t have a smile on my face. For whatever reason though, Chuck is always rumored for cancellation.
To be continued…
What’s your favorite TV show? I’d love to hear from you!
Tonight, Body of Proof debuts on ABC at 9pm CST starring Dana Delaney. I have mine set on the DVR!
