Fall Friend Makin' Mondays

Friend Makin’ Mondays: Fall TV Shows

It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays, and this week we’re talking about TV premiers. If you want to join the fun, click here. I’m looking forward to the next couple of weeks because most of my favorite shows (with exception of 24) will be airing again.

What Are Some of Your Favorite Shows?

  • Private Practice — I cannot wait to see how the story with Violet plays out. And I kind of assume she will live, but I’m talking, more specifically, about her relationship with Pete.
  • Big Bang Theory — Nerd scientists can be very funny…I love this show.

  • How I Met Your Mother — What can I say? I love Ted…

  • Ugly Betty — Enough Henry already. I liked her boyfriend last season, and now he’s going to be her boss?! Ugh…Oh well. I love Daniel Meade!
  • Grey’s Anatomy — I’m tired of the Izzy story so let’s just get on with it. And seriously, McDreamy and Meredith need to tie the knot or move on…and I love McSteamy and Little Grey are great together so I hope they’re still going strong.

I’ll also keep watching Drop Dead Diva and Ruby. Ruby bothers me for several reasons…she’s whiny, negative and dramatic. And she doesn’t know how to pronounce common words. But she’s on a similar journey so her story interests me.

And I’m planning to watch a show I’ve never watched before this year too — The Biggest Loser. I also love college football, and I’m excited to sit on the sofa, in front of my big TV to watch Texas beat team after team this season. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks to DVR I shouldn’t have to miss my favorite programs. Of course, the cable company will have to come and fix my cable channels first which they are not in a hurry to do. Grrr, cable company, grrrr….

What are your favorite shows? Do you get excited about season premiers?

    Oh I love the biggest loser and if I may say it is very inspiring to people wanting to or are losing weight. I think there tends to be someone on the show every season that someone can connect with. Happy FMM thanks for sharing!

    I am so excited for season premieres…I'm already double and triple checking my DVR =)

    HIMYM is the greatest show ever. I love every single character, the plot, the dialogue…I'm obsessed. So naturally it's #1 on my Friend Makin' Monday list!

    Thank GOODNESS I am not the only one who thinks Ruby is whiney!

    I tried to get into the show but after I seen how mean she was about her room makeover… I about died. If I had all that help in losing weight I wouldn't be whining all the time!

    Ruby is very whiny…I can only watch her in very small doses. Like an episode every couple weeks.

    I forgot all about VILOET!

    Oh boy: you've spoiled the Private Practice final for me ๐Ÿ˜† we're a few episodes behind. Next week I will see the seasons final. Same for Grey's, it will air again September 28th and we have a few episodes of season 5 left although I couldn't resist and already read the internet what happened in the final.

    I also love Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Gossip Girl, 90210 and look forward to the new Melrose Place (that is if they will air it here but I suppose they will).

    I would love to see the biggest loser, heard so much about it. I will look for free episodes on the internet so I can see it too.

    I love my DVDR too otherwise I couldn't see this all because my lover doesn't like any of these shows ๐Ÿ™‚ and I can fast forward the commercials ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awesome list!! I hope Grey's gets some good storylines this season.

    I really like your blog–I'm trying to lose weight as well! And your Sadie Grace is too cute for words!

    I used to host a book swap on my blog! Do a lot of people participate in yours? When will it be happening? I would love to join–I just need to get to reading ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great list. I got in on the end of private practice last year, so I will have to get addicted this year. You will love biggest loser. I usually watch it while walking on the treadmill.
    I also love the DVR, how I never miss a favorite program now.
    Happy FMM!

    We have such similiar taste in about everything. Whenever I read things on your blog I'm usually like "ME TOO!"

    I love all the shows on your list. Can't wait for the season premier of the Big Bang Theory. I didn't put it on my list, but I love that show! Funny thing is that I make my husband think that it is "his show" b/c we kind of split TV time between "my shows" and "his shows"…so this gets me an extra show! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Oh, and I want Daniel and Betty to hook up on Ugly Betty. I'm tired of McDreamy and Meredith going back and forth…she just needs to commit already! I also love that McSteamy (and he is SO steamy) and little Grey are together and hope it stays that way!!
