Monday, September 21, 2009
- Heroes (8pm on NBC – Available in HD) – Season 4 begins. Heroes remains on my favorites list but honestly it never regained it’s first season fun.
- House (8pm on Fox) – Season 6 starts off with a 2-hour premiere. I’m a House watcher although its one of those shows I watch casually and don’t mind if I miss one here and there.
- Dancing With The Stars (9pm on ABC – Available in HD) – Season 9 begins with 2 hours of DWTS. My wife loves this one. I find it well not worth 5 minutes, but its fairly harmless I guess.
- How I Met Your Mother (8pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 5 of my favorite sitcom arrives
- Accidentally on Purpose (8:30pm on CBS– Available in HD) – A new sitcom starring Jenna Elfman. It has potential and it has Jenna Elfman, but who knows if it will make it.
- The Big Bang Theory (9pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 3 begins. This is one of those shows everyone seems to love. I watched the very first premiere of it and never watched it again, but maybe I should give it a second chance?
- Two and a Half Men (9:30pm on CBS – Available in HD) - Season 7 of a crowd favorite sitcom.
- Castle (10pm on ABC – Available in HD) – Season 2 of Castle arrives – one of my wife’s favorites and I’ll admit it’s not that bad although I don’t make time for it.
- CSI: Miami (10pm on CBS – Available in HD) - Season 8
- Madventures (10pm on Travel– Available in HD) - Riku and Tunna travel from Brazil's urban jungles of Rio to the rain forests of the Amazon basin in the footsteps of William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg.
Tuesday, September 22, 2009
- NCIS (8pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 7
- NCIS: Los Angeles (9pm on CBS – Available in HD) – A new version of NCIS starring Chris O’Donnel & LL Cool J
- The Good Wife (10pm on ABC – Available in HD) – A promising new drama starring Julianna Margulies
- The Forgotten (10pm on CBS – Available in HD) – New show where amateurs solve murders of John/Jane Doe murder victims.
- Joe Buck Live (10pm on HBO – Available in HD) – One Hour Special
- The Naughty Kitchen with Chef Blythe Beck (10pm on Oxygen)
- Table for 12 (10pm on TLC – Available in HD) – Season 2 premiere
Wednesday, September 23, 2009
- The New Adventures of Old Christine (8pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 5
- Mercy (8pm on NBC– Available in HD) – A medical drama. I wasn’t that impressed with the clips I saw on this one.
- Gary Unmarried (8:30pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 2 of a sitcom that is entertaining. On my wife’s favorite list.
- Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (9pm on NBC– Available in HD) – Season 11
- Modern Family (9pm on ABC– Available in HD) – A new sitcom. Don’t mistake this for a “family” show as it’s a little edgy on the humor train but it definitely has its funny moments.
- Criminal Minds (9pm on CBS– Available in HD) – Season 5
- Cougar Town (9:30pm on ABC– Available in HD) – This show has had a lot of talk about it. One because of the silly premise of “cougars” (no I’m not referring to the animal) and secondly because it stars Courtney Cox. Could be successful though based on the clips I saw.
- CSI: NY (6pm on CBS– Available in HD) – Season 6
- Eastwick (10pm on ABC– Available in HD) – A new TV show based on the Witches of Eastwick. Looks pretty bad in my opinion.
Thursday, September 24, 2009
- Flash Forward (8pm on ABC– Available in HD) – The most talked about new show – this one is a Science Fiction-based drama. Time stands still for a moment for everyone in the world and everyone sees different versions of the future. Then time re-starts and the fun begins. This is a must-see premiere – I’m not positive about how the show will be long-term but the clips I saw of the premiere were very good.
- Grey’s Anatomy (9pm on ABC– Available in HD) – Season 6
- CSI (9pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 9
- The Mentalist (10pm on CBS– Available in HD) – Season 2. Another favorite of my wife.
Friday, September 25, 2009
- Brothers (8pm on Fox – Available in HD) – My vote for the worst new show of this TV season. Save your valuable time and skip this new sitcom. It pains me to know it leads up to Dollhouse as it will turn off the few Friday viewers that might have watched Dollhouse…
- Smallville (8pm on CW – Available in HD) – Season 9
- Ghost Whisperer (8pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 5
- Law & Order (8pm on NBC – Available in HD) – Season 20 of “Law & Order” makes this shows tied with Gunsmoke as the longest running drama
- Medium (9pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 6 of Medium – this time on a new network
- Dollhouse (9pm on Fox – Available in HD) – Season 2 – Dollhouse survived against all odds. This show lost some audience last year but it really found its story a little over half way through the first season. Give it another try and watch the last few episodes from last year online and then record this season – It’s going to be good. Very good.
- Numb3rs (10pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 6
- Jeff Garlin: Young and Handsome (Midnight on Comedy) – One hour special
Saturday, September 26, 2009
- Crimetime Saturday (8pm on CBS – Available in HD)
- Dateline (8pm on NBC) – Season 19
- Children of the Corn (9pm on SyFy) – Made for TV movie
- 48 Hours Mystery (10pm on CBS – Available in HD)
- Saturday Night Live (11:30pm on NBC – Available in HD) – Season 35 I record the first 30 minutes of SNL each week and scan for the few funny parts. They are there sometimes, but it’s not too consistent anymore.
Sunday, September 27, 2009
- Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (7pm on ABC – Available in HD) – Season 7
- 60 Minutes (7pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 42
- The Amazing Race (8pm on CBS) – Season 14 arrives. I’m officially no longer interested in this reality TV show. I used to enjoy it but its just not that entertaining to me anymore and they still don’t do it in HD which is just stupid this day and age.
- The Simpsons (8pm on Fox – Available in HD) – Season 21 Bart lives on.
- The Cleveland Show (8:30pm on Fox – Available in HD) – New spinoff of “The Family Guy.” I don’t do adult cartoons, but the previews of this were actually sort of funny.
- Family Guy (9pm on Fox – Available in HD) – Season 9
- Desperate Housewives (9pm on ABC– Available in HD) – Season 6 arrives – another of my wife’s favorites
- American Dad (9:30pm on Fox – Available in HD) – Season 5
- Dexter (10pm on Showtime – Available in HD) – Season 4 of Dexter. My daughter really loves this show (she got hooked watching it on Netflix Watch Now) and it really sort of scares me. But I know it’s a good one.
- Brothers & Sisters (10pm on ABC – Available in HD) – Season 4
- Californication (10pm on Showtime – Available in HD) – Season 3
- Cold Case (10pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season 7
Season Finales this Week:
- 09/22/2009 9pm on SyFy “Warehouse 13” season finale. I really enjoyed this new series this summer.
- 9/24/2009 10pm on MTV “Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew” season finale
