The fall is always a great season for TV, and here are a few shows I’ve gotten hooked on this year!
The New Atlanta: If there is a new show on Bravo, I watch it. I have been a little selective with Housewives because I think those have become pretty boring and formulaic (let’s have a knock down, drag out fight every week because you looked at me funny!). But, anyway, The New Atlanta got me hooked, surprise, surprise. It’s very similar to Shahs of Sunset and Most Eligible Dallas, because it’s a similar format to Housewives, but with 20 and 30 somethings of both genders. They sort of know each other, and there’s a crazy one, a driven one, a hot one, a voice of reason, all the necessary characters. Right now it’s on Tuesdays at 10pm (let’s be honest, I usually just watch last week’s episode that re-runs earlier in the night cause 10pm is my bedtime).
Super Fun Night: This is one that Carrie turned me onto! I was a little skeptical at first because the commercials weren’t very promising, but it’s actually pretty cute and funny. I think the Rebel Wilson (from Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect), puts on kind of a forced American accent, but she’s a funny gal. There’s a cute boy and all the typical rom-com, sit-com type plots, it’s basically right up my alley. Watch for it on Wednesdays on ABC.
Sean Saves the World: The return of Jack from Will and Grace! I like Sean Hayes, and even though I think he’s a little type cast these days, he’s pretty hilarious. He’s definitely less flamboyant and crazy in this show, but really funny. I think the writing is smart and funny. It’s supposed to be contributing to the return of Must See TV on Thursday nights on NBC. While I like this one, I’m a little luke warm on the other shows in the lineup, I try to catch this one!
And the other not so new shows I’m watching are of course: Hart of Dixie, The Mindy Project, and I’m getting ready for new episodes of Girl Code on MTV! Also a new season of Top Chef just started, and I usually wait a few weeks so there are fewer contestants, and that way it’s not as lengthy of an emotional roller coaster for me!
I’m obviously having a really busy fall…
How are you passing your weeknights?
