Though I sometimes do not like to admit it, my DVR works overtime each week. I have seen a number of other bloggers talk TV since the Fall line-up has started to premier and thought I would jump on board. Below is a list of the shows I record each week. I do not watch all these shows the night they air (I would never go to bed on Sunday!), but watch some from earlier in the week later on. Of course, I also watch the news, usually both local and national, each night as well.
*These shows are not currently on. Their seasons just ended.
Meet the Press - I know you are all thinking I am not intellectual enough or a huge nerd for watching this, but it is one of my favorites and always informative.
Revenge- Cannot wait for Revenge to start back up. From the set to the clothing to the plot this is one of my favorite shows on TV.
Park 666- I am excited about watching the premier this week. It seems up my alley!
*Downton Abbey- Yes, I have paid to watch Season 3 online because I just could not wait until January. My, has it been worth every single penny. I laughed hysterically and cried in the first episode. Best show on TV!!
*Mad Men- I followed Don and Peggy for several years and was excited they were back this year. Love the clothes and the twisted plot.
Gallery Girls- Since I majored in Art History I love this show. It is much more of an authentic reality show in my opinion. Not so scripted like The Hills.
*Pretty Little Liars- Every time I watch I am shocked this show in on ABC Family. It is SO scary, but SO good!
*United Bates of America- I have been following the Bates since they first appeared on 16 Kids and Counting. Maybe it is an only child syndrome, but large families fascinate me.
Dancing with the Stars Elimination- I will only watch the elimination until the top five. Honestly, I am only watching this season because I saw Emmitt and Pat Smith at Women of Faith last week and felt compelled.
19 Kids and Counting- I LOVE the Duggar family! I know many of you do not, but they love all their children and I respect a family that has no debt and puts God first. They take me back to my AR roots too!
Abby and Brittany- I have been recording this show since the premier and usually watch it on Saturday as a background filler. These sisters amaze me and they are from MN.
*Teen Mom- I watched every season. Again, another guilty pleasure.
*American Idol- For the very first time ever my contestant finally won! I cannot wait to cheer on a new crowd and watch the new judges come January.
Glee- While I feel like the show has gone down hill I still record it and watch for the music.
Living Abroad- Unlike House Hunters, this show offers a much more in depth look at living overseas. Dubai, Singapore and Geneva have all been featured.
Georgetown Cupcake- As a lover of all sugar concoctions did you expect anything less? I love watching the sister duo create cupcake sculptures.
*The Monarchy- This was a fascinating show on the British Monarchy. Each week a different aspect was highlighted. From Royal visits abroad, to running the palace to the famous garden party we got a glimpse into a life only a few will ever live. I am leaving this on the list since some other shows that fall into this same category pop up now and then and of course I record them all.
**I tried Breaking Amish but could not get into it. If you want an interesting documentary on Amish teens watch the Devil's Playground. It is fascinating!
**I also tried to get into X Factor and just could not. I will remain an Idol fan.
**I also record certain Masterpiece Theaters. I look at the description each week and then vote yes or no.
Do we share any TV interests or do you feel like I am missing out on anything?
