I think I’ve mentioned this sometime before on the blog, but I watch an embarrassing amount of TV. I don’t discriminate that much- I’ll watch anything from The Real Housewives to Mad Men. As much as I love summer, we have to admit that there’s not much going on in the TV department then. That’s another reason why I’m excited for fall- my TV shows are back on the air! Here are a few shows that I’m loving so far.
Brooklyn Nine Nine on Fox- I think Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher are a great comedic duo on this show and I’m excited to see where this goes.
The Voice on NBC- I love The Voice. First of all, I appreciate that the contestants actually have good voices, which means that we don’t have to sit through weeks of painful auditions. The original four judges are back this season and I think they have a great rapport- it’s fun to watch them banter with and tease each other. I have favorites each season and I still go back and listen to performances from seasons past on Youtube from time to time.
New Girl on Fox- When this show first started I thought I wouldn’t like it, but it definitely grew on me. I think it’s only gotten better over time and it’s one of my current favorite sitcoms.
Nashville on ABC- I will watch anything with Connie Britton so of course I am watching this show. I’m not a huge fan of country music so I wasn’t sure I would stick with the show at first, but I have to admit that some of the music on the show is pretty good.
Grey’s Anatomy on ABC- Yes, I am still watching Grey’s Anatomy. I can’t believe it’s on its tenth season! I believe this is Sandra Oh’s (Cristina Yang) last season and I don’t know what I’ll do when there’s no more Meredith + Cristina.
Scandal on ABC- This show is one of my obsessions. I discovered it at the tail end of season 1 and I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t heard any buzz about it. Luckily lots of other viewers caught on to the awesomeness of this show too and each week I can’t wait for the next juicy episode.
Parenthood on NBC- Ugh, this show is so good. Before I started watching this show, I knew there was a running joke that every episode would make you cry and it’s kind of true. The characters feel so real, like people I could know in real life. There’s no flashy action scenes or supernatural happenings- it’s just about life.
The Michael J. Fox Show on NBC- I love that this is a comedy dealing with a serious issue- Parkinson’s Disease. I think Michael J. Fox is totally inspirational and I hope this show sticks around for a long time.
Parks and Recreation on NBC- Leslie Knope for President! This show continues to deliver the laughs (and side note: Dear Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Pretty please with a cherry on top host The Golden Globes again? xoxo Nnenna).
Masters of Sex on Showtime- This show has been compared to Mad Men and I can see why, what with the period setting and costumes. Right now you can watch the series premiere online for free, which I did over the weekend. It seems like a really interesting story and actually made me want to do a little googling and learn more about the real-life Dr. Masters and Virginia Johnson.
The Walking Dead on AMC- At first I thought I wouldn’t able to handle the zombies and such, but it’s not even really about the zombies for me anymore. It’s about a group of people fighting tooth and nail to survive in a strange world and I’m rooting for them every step of the way.
Homeland on Showtime- Here’s another show that keeps me on the edge of my seat (or more accurately, sitting tensely upright in my bed). Each episode is so intense and sometimes I find myself holding my breath for a few long moments!
Tell me: What TV shows are you excited to watch this fall?
