I’ve been waiting weeks—weeks—for this week to arrive, and it’s finally here: it’s time for new TV shows! The summer can be such a lull since there aren’t any new episodes of my favorite shows. Yeah, I’m sure it’s because we’re supposed to be outside enjoying the extra sunlight, but y’all already know my feelings about being outside past 9 am in Georgia.
During the summer we watch a lot of HGTV and the Food Network when there isn’t anything else on to watch. Don’t get me wrong—I love those stations and can literally binge watch their shows all day, but I’ve missed my people. You get so involved with story lines and characters, and you end up missing them. You do miss them, right?
Okay, so here’s what I’m watching this season.
Most of the shows are oldies, but goodies, and there are a couple new ones thrown in there for good measure. I’d love to hear what you’re watching during those prime-time hours, especially if they’re new—I don’t want to be the last one to know about some awesome TV show out there.
Switched at Birth (ABC Family)
Jane the Virgin (The CW)
Best Time Ever with NPH* (NBC)
Modern Family (ABC)
and probably Grey’s Anatomy (ABC), because even though I’m adamant about not wanting to watch it, because it really should’ve ended last season, I know I probably still will. Although, it’s a good things Bones is on at the same time, so maybe I won’t see it as much.
The asterisks (new shows):
Best Time Ever with NPH: This show is fun, but it’s not going to be a must-watch every week. If I miss it, I’m not going to rush to find out what happened. It’ll be cool if I see it, but that’s about it.
Limitless: I’ve only seen one episode, but I’m hooked and want more. It’s an adaptation from a movie starring Bradly Cooper, and—spoiler alert—he’s making appearances in the TV show as well. Also, fun fact: Ron Rifkin is also in it, and he and Mr. Cooper starred in Alias together. (Alias will always be one of my favorite shows.)
Quantico: Give. Me. MORE! This is one of those shows that I don’t want to have to wait an entire week to watch. The first episode gave us so many great twists, that I’m almost considering not watching it, but recording them so I can binge watch them later in the season. Don’t worry….that won’t happen. I have no self-control.
What are YOU watching this season?
Okay, your turn. Is there a common TV show up there for both of us? Am I missing out on some fantabulous new show that I must watch? Tell me!
