Fall 2006

All the networks have announced their Fall schedules, so without further ado, here's what I think I'll be watching (schedule taken from The Futon Critic):

Mondays
8PM
How I Met Your Mother - Very much looking forward to the second season.

8:30PM
Class - New sitcom about a group of young men and women who went to third grade together. Nothing special in the description, but why change the channel?

9PM
Two and Half Men - Dopey, but it gives me a fair number of laughs per ep, so who am I to judge?

10PM
What About Brian? - Didn't see any eps this year, but the wife expressed interest and I'm game for giving it a go. If it can break her CSI: Miami habit, I'll be pleased.

Tuesdays
8PM - Gilmore Girls, of course.

9PM - If I can catch up with Veronica Mars on DVD I'll try and watch it. Otherwise, it'll beHouse.

10PM
The odd Law and Order SVU. My favorite of all the L&O clones.

Wednesdays
8PM
Jericho - I'm curious to give it a try. Small ton survivors of a nuclear war? Could go a variety of ways.

9PM
Lost

10PM
The Nine - Nine hostages connect after being held hostage for 52 hours. Each episode we see flashbacks to the 52-hour standoff itself. I'll give her a go.

Thursdays
8PM
My Name Is Earl - A very solid first year.

8:30PM
The Office - My new favorite sitcom. Maybe. Maybe it's How I Met Your Mother. Maybe.

9PM
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - The show I'm most eagerly awaiting. I caught the six-minute clip on YouTube before the angry lawyers stripped it away, and I don't know what all the negative buzz about the clip was about. I thought it looked extremely promising, with great chemistry between Bradford and Perry, a nicely smarmy Weber, and a good foil in Amanda Peet. And it looks like it'll be paralleling the real world closely, much more closely than The West Wing or Sports Night did. Can't wait.

10PM
ER - And a big raspberry to Jaquandor.

Fridays
Nada.

Saturdays
Nada.

Sundays
7PM
Everybody Hates Chris - Fact is, I'll really almost never be able to catch this at 7. But I'll Ti-Faux it.

8PM
The Simpsons - Ditto.

9PM
Family Guy - Worth the odd chuckle.

10PM
Brothers & Sisters - I'm one of the few who will admit to liking, not only Ally McBeal, but Calista Flockhart as well. So I'll check out this soapy-looking family drama.

Until Whenever

You're still going to watch that crap? After they had Leguizamo urinating on a taxi cab, the death of Gallant that they've been telegraphing for a year now, and that cliffhanger that would have been too histrionic to end a season of Dynasty?!

My God, man! Put down the ER kool-aid! :)

Damn! I'm stealing from you AGAIN.

But I do agree that ANOTHER shootout in the ER is at least one too many.

Like I always say, if any actor can pull off urinating on a taxi cab, it's John Leguizamo. Besides, any show that's smart enough to hire Maura Tierney, Parminder Nagra, and Linda Cardellini is doing SOMETHING right.
