Night of Favorites

January 21, 2010

Somehow I ended up with a ridiculous number of favorite tv shows on Thursday night. With tonight’s return of Burn Notice at 10/9c on USA, the night is now even more fun. Check out what USA has to say about the winter premiere of Burn Notice:

When a recently widowed woman hires Michael and Fiona to get her away from a group of violent con men, Michael turns to Madeline for help — but he may ask her to go too far. Meanwhile, a mysterious contact goes to extreme lengths to get Michael’s attention.Tyne Daly & Clayne Crawford guest-star in the Burn Notice winter premiere – “A Dark Road” – airing this Thursday at a new but familiar time: 10/9C.

Unfortunately, I have to work tonight, so I am not quite sure when I will watch Burn Notice, but hopefully sometime on Friday.

Other notable shows with new episodes tonight include Bones, Parks & Recreation, The Office, Fringe, and The Mentalist.


TV Round-Up

November 20, 2009

Just a quick update today on some anticipated release and return dates. Over the past month or so, I’ve mentioned that I was looking forward to the return of four of my favorite shows and I speculated on whether or not Scarecrow & Mrs. King would finally be released on DVD.

Well, I am excited to announce that earlier this week, the first season of Scarecrow & Mrs. King did become available for pre-order on Amazon. It will be released in March and I will definitely be splurging on that!

Other good news this week is the report that Burn Notice will return on January 28 and Psych will return on January 29. As a side note, White Collar will move to Thursdays after Burn Notice for the second half of its season. [Oh my gosh, that means I will have six (6) shows on Thursday nights.] It should be noted that USA has yet to make an official announcement about these return dates, but they do seem likely.

Finally, two exciting return dates were announced yesterday. First, Lost will return on Tuesday, February 2. I am very pleased that it will be on Tuesdays. I had heard rumors that it might go to Thursday, which, if you just read the above paragraph, you realize would have been disastrous for me. However, Tuesday is terrific because it will come on right after NCIS.

The second announcement from yesterday is probably the one I am most excited about: Chuck will be returning January 10 with a two hour season premiere. So glad I don’t have to wait until March!

I leave you with a sneak peek at Season 3 of Chuck:

Hey, Hey, It’s Thursday!

November 12, 2009

I make no secret out of the fact that Thursday is my favorite day of the week. I started to like Thursday while I was still in school. The last couple of semesters, I had light Fridays so Thursday felt like the start of the weekend in many ways.

Now Thursday is my favorite day because so many of my favorite tv shows fall on that night.

Plus, this week, Thursday also means a night off work for me so I get to watch three of my four Thursday shows tonight as they air.

This is what my Thursday night currently looks like:


7:00 PM –  Bones

The Office

8:00 PM – The Office

Parks and Recreation

8:30 PM – Parks and Recreation (recorded since it airs while Bones is still on)

The Mentalist

9:00 PM – The Mentalist (My new #2 while Psych and Chuck are off)

So, basically, Thursdays are pretty awesome. Just imagine how exciting this night will be when Burn Notice is back!
