Important Update: TV Shows I am Watching

As many of you know, I only acquired mega cable (with DVR!) in the last six months.  At first, I was so freaked out about spending the money and the time I would be wasting now that I had a million channels.  However, as some of you suggested, it would be well worth my money since it would save me so much time.  And you were right.  Now Matt and I record the shows we want to watch, watch them when we want to watch them, and fast forward through the commercials!  But I fall asleep so early, and Romy doesn't go to bed until 8:30 or 8:45, that I only have maybe an hour of TV viewing every night.  Our DVR has been so busy lately that I haven't even had time to watch the Beverly Hills 90210 Season 8 DVDs I have from Netflix!  Read below to find out the scoop on what I am watching:
Treme: I think there's supposed to be an accent in that title.  We actually signed up for HBO again just to watch this (last time we had HBO was for Curb Your Enthusiasm).  They are having a special for only $10 a month!  Hopefully that will take us through True Blood.  Treme is a show about New Orleans, three months post-Katrina.  Lots of great music.  Only one episode so far, but the show does have my favorite actor of all time: John Goodman.
19 Kids and Counting: I am still into the Duggars and their many children.  I hear the uber-preemie, Josie, is finally out of the hospital (but they haven't gotten to that on the show)!  Every time they visit Josie in the hospital on the show I cry, remembering when our little preemie Romy was in there.  Matt and I have started giving nicknames to each of the Duggar children.  Some examples: Fugly Duggar, Stoner Duggar, and Dummy Duggar.  Actually, I don't think Dummy Duggar is one of their names.  But it sounds funny.
Glee: I'm glad the show is back on, but I will admit that the big break has definitely taken away a lot of my initial enthusiasm.  I think Fox messed up on that one.  Hopefully Glee can redeem itself.
Project Runway: This has been a decent season.  I'm not blown away, but I'm not annoyed all of the time.  I think the show may have run its course, but I'll still watch.
Top Chef Masters: I forgot this show was on, so I haven't actually seen this season yet.  But I loved the last season, and my trusty DVR will find it for me.

And when we have time or I actually stay awake longer than an hour or I wake up before everyone else, these are some of the things I watch:
Tori and Dean: I do like Tori, although the more I read from her and the more I see of her and her plastic surgery, the sadder I feel.  I like her kids and her fancy lifestyle, but I really think her husband is a sleaze.  How gross that he is constantly talking about sex, when he knows there is a camera on him and his kid from another marriage, his current kids, and anyone else in the world can hear him.  He disgusts me.  She can do better.
iCarly: Somehow Matt and I have really gotten into this show.  Matt likes the always shirtless Gibby, and I like Carly's over-the-top brother, Spencer.
Kirstie Alley's Big Life: My mom and I watched a bunch of episodes while I was loafing after my surgery.  It seems very staged, but Kirstie is funny, and she has very cool lemur cages.

Show that is over but I can't stop thinking about:
Celebrity Fit Club: This cast was genius: Bobby Brown, Kevin Federline, K-Fed's ex-wife, Shar Jackson, the heavy girl from High School Musical, Sebastian Bach, that girl from Bad Girl's Club who says, "Pop off, Son."  I could not get enough.  And then, they made me cry.  K-Fed made me cry!  He was sweet and stupid and charming, and I totally got what everyone saw in him.  I am glad that he finally gave Shar some closure.  And then there is the brilliance of Sebastian Bach.  I was most impressed by him.  Their antics will be missed.

Time to turn off the TV and get my girl out of bed!

I love Glee! And I agree about Project Runway-this season hasn't been great, but it's not annoying either. I think it's run it's course too. The other shows I haven't watched. We're also addicted to 30 Rock-so funny! My Tivo changed my life and I hate watching commercials now.

What did you think of the final Project Runway?

You know, I was not very excited about it. The best part was watching the judges talk about what they thought, since they don't usually show it for that long. Otherwise, nothing special.
