WOW! That didn’t take long!

GET YOUR GROOVE ON, MJ!

A new Weekly Feature!

I actually pay someone to scour what is on all the channels and then create me a list of the many, many different shows I may want to watch. Then I agree or disagree with their discoveries. Obviously, not all of these shows will be watched this week. Some of them will never be watched– as I often wait for 6-8 weeks before I start watching any new show (unless it is expeditious or important for me to watch it earlier… Or it stars Rhona Mitra or Kim Delaney). I want to make certain some network crank doesn’t cancel their fledgling offering just as I’m getting into it. Other shows– especially a lot of reality shows– I will wait until the whole damn thing is over… So I can skim quickly through and only hit the parts that interest me.

It pays to have 5 DVRs in the house.

You may want to use this list to remind yourself what is on or to find something new you may want to watch. Get some benefit out of it!

The funny thing is… The only two shows (other than Rescue Me) I am looking forward to this week?
