  1. Fall shows – I expected to love Nashville more but kinda don’t. I stopped watching after ep3. Still watching/sad it was cancelled – Emily Owens. I really like it. Not sure why except I really like all the actors and it’s really grown on me. I don’t know if I have a favorite new show of the fall. I am still watching Revolution and Arrow and that might be it. I wanted to love Ben & Kate but comedies are just not my thing.

    I can’t watch Whitney. Again with the comedies and I really don’t think she is funny. At all.

    The only comedy I can stand is New Girl and I LOVE it.

    I still love Vampire Diaries. I just do.

    Ok, did someone tweet about Wedding Band or was it the New Girl joke about BAG that made me remember this show? Because I watched every episode that was available on demand the Saturday after Thanksgiving and now I DVR it so I don’t forget and I love it. And it’s a TBS show. I never like their shows. WHO AM I?

    Amazing Race – yeah, kinda pissed that a shitty team that was almost eliminated every leg and never came close to winning anything won the whole thing. But made me thing strategy if I am ever on it.

    I LOVED Survivor this season. I have never watched every episode of a season ever. I didn’t miss anything this time. And it’s not like I really had one favorite. I had a few. But I will be watching come February especially is Malcolm is back. I do think Denise deserved to win. And Penner was a bitch for outing Lisa. She should have done it herself but he just sounded like a baby. It was just a great season.

    I am super excited about winter cable shows coming back – White Collar, Suits, Being Human, Drag Race, Shameless.
