The Amazing Race
Season 23 premieres Sunday, Sep. 29 at 8pm EST on CBS.
I've been watching this show since way before we knew we'd be living here in Indiana, but I've now decided that someone in the writers' circle has ties to Fort Wayne. There is a road I drive almost every day that is dedicated to a police officer named Eryk Todd Heck (Heck is the last name of the family in the series), and a former mayor of Fort Wayne was named Harry Baals (an episode last season involved the oldest child campaigning for a politician because he was named Harry Butts).
Season 5 premieres Wednesday, Sep. 25 at 8pm on ABC.
There's a reason this show has won so many Emmy's. It's just plain awesome. The cast is top-notch, and the writing is good. I love some of the takes on parenting, since that's where I'm at in life. My favorite gem, thus far:
Raising a kid is like sending a rocket ship to the moon. You spend the early years in constant contact and then one day, around the teenage years, they go around the dark side and they're gone. All you can do is wait for that faint signal that says they're coming back.And BOTH Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen are beautiful and hilarious, two things I aspire to be.
Season 5 premeires on Wedensday, Sep. 25 at 8pm on ABC.
The Big Bang Theory
I think the fact that B's 84-year-old grandma enjoys this show says everything.
Season 7 premieres Thursday, Sep. 26 at 8pm on CBS.
Wouldn't it be neat to be one of the sharks (most of them self-made millionaires) and get to decide on new products to invest in? Plus, I just love seeing some of the more wacky ideas out there. This is a perfect Friday night show.
Season 5 premieres Friday, Sep. 20 at 9pm on ABC.
I think I just gave you a pretty good taste of my TV-watching habits. Obviously no crime dramas, no medical dramas, no "train wreck" reality shows. I just like to laugh and learn stuff--and we don't have cable, Netflix, Hulu Plus, or even a real antenna. Two other shows I love that have already premiered are The Chew on ABC and Project Runway on Lifetime.
Are any of your favorites on my list?
