I'll be checking out Africa (because I'm a sucker for stuff like that), The Carrie Diaries (because, well, it looks really stupid, but it's Carrie Bradshaw, so I have to), The Following (because it'll be a good show for Jacob and I to watch together), The Americans (because it looks totally awesome), Bates Motel (amazing cast and awesome premise), How to Live With Your Parents (Ugh, stupid title, but I like Sarah Chalke and I LOVE Elizabeth Perkins), Mistresses (because I love Alyssa Milano), Hannibal (another show for Jacob and I to watch together), and The Goodwin Games (because I love the cast and the plot sounds fun).
 
 
So many shows. So little time.
What will you watch?

I can't wait for Smash to come back. Love that show so much and love that Jennifer Hudson will be in it! Honestly not really interested in any of the new shows. I may check one or two out if they are on a night that I watch nothing else!

Excited for Smash to come back! I can't wait for Do No Harm, but that's mostly because a) it's filmed in Philly and b) Hubs grew up with Steve Pasquale, so it's really fun to see him take on a new role - we loved him in Rescue Me! We just saw a preview for Bates Motel and that's probably one we'll get sucked into. I hadn't heard of Hannibal yet, but I always loved that concept when I saw the movie and hoped they'd explore it a bit more...and now they are!

I'm so excited cause

1. That means The Mindy Project, PLL, and Switched at Birth are all back and ready to watch again.


2. I love some of these new shows. Deception and Cult seem interesting...?

Casey said...

I'm so stinking excited about Downton and Girls that it's just silly. SILLY. Yay thanks for all these trailers!

I eventually want to catch up on Downton Abbey and Mad Men. I have a few shows I watch that are starting soon -- Pretty Little Liars, Being Human, Southland, and Cougar Town. I plan to watch Mistresses when it starts because I love Alyssa, but that'll probably be it. I just don't have the time and haven't seen any previews that make me think, OH I MUST SEE THAT!

I hadn't even heard of half of these shows! I am excited for PLL and (finally!!) The Lying Games. JUSTIFIED on Monday.

Super excited for The Following bc I think it'll be the new 24 for me. Bates Motel looks good. And I will def check out The Americans.

I think I need to make myself a calendar to keep track of everything.

Ooh yeah and Cult! I was sad when Ric left TVD but excited for this new show.

LOVE Mad Men.
Also...I have to watch Downton on Netflix...I hate that! It's only got season 1 so far!

Jodie said...

PLL, The Lying Game, Switched at Birth, and Revenge all come on this week!! I'm a happy girl! :)

Karen Peterson said...

Ohmygosh I totally love Downton Abbey. I'm watching it online as I write this, actually.

Other than that and The Walking Dead and Once Upon a Time, I'm not watching a lot of TV these days. Which is weird. I used to watch so much and now I just don't make time for it. I kind of miss it.
