What do you want to watch tonight?

Like so many other people, we are excited for all of the new seasons of tv shows to begin!  Our DVR is back to working full time for us!  I love the DVR, I really can't remember what it was like before we had one.  Now we watch what we want when we want to.  We don't have to worry about when things come on and either missing a show or changing our schedule to fit the networks' schedules.

We are looking forward to both our favorites starting again, as well as finding some new ones to watch (like we need more...)

Here are some of our favorite returning shows:

We are still into Grey's Anatomy, even though it's been a tough road.  This will be Grey's 8th season on ABC.  Over the years, we've had a love-hate relationship with this show.  It was definitely better this past year, so hopefully it will keep being good!  We have caught up a smidge and watched the first one two hours, and it was as intense as the past seasons!

Because of the 2 hour Grey's premier last week, ABC's Private Practice will premier it's 5th season tomorrow.  This is one of the other dramas that we have on our list.  It's been quite a ride with them, and I hope the new season will be just as good as the last!

One of our very favorite shows is Top Chef.  We are so excited for November when the 9th season will begin, this time in Texas!  Beginning the season with 29, they will narrow it down and take 16 "cheftestants" to Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio.

We are also looking forward to some new shows this year:

This one's just 'new to me.'  I'm finally going to get on the train and see what all the Modern Family fuss is about.  People have been talking about this show for the last 2 years, and I keep forgetting to put it on the DVR schedule.  So it's time.  I am thinking about going back to the beginning and renting the previous seasons so I'm up to date!  I watched the 2 from last week and literally was laughing out loud, so I'm really excited to be part of the cool kids now.

Up All Night on NBC looks like it's going to be hilarious, I'm really excited for this new one.  I haven't seen the premier yet (thanks DVR) but I've heard good things so far!

I'll be interested to see what else pans out in the new show category.  Pan Am is getting a lot of hype, so I wonder how it's going to be received.  I caught the second half of Prime Suspect while husband was watching it over the weekend - it seems really intense.  I can only do so many "shoot 'em up bang bang" shows.  I don't do scary, so American Horror Story will not be on my list...We watched Whitney too, which looks like it could be funny if they don't try so hard to be funny.  

What do you watch?  Am I missing any good ones?!


  1. You must watch the first 2 seasons of Modern Family! You will love it!

  2. We cancelled cable for a year and just got it back on Monday. I am so excited to load up the DVR. Top Chef is my favorite too! :)
