Two and a Half Men (Mondays)
Mia Returns…..yowzers, Charlie. I guess it was bound to happen, but it’s good to see him staying with Chelsea. Will he really marry her? If CBS wants any new storylines, this wedding must proceed. They can only go so far on the “Bachelor Without Morals” platform. Jake is still funny and anal retentive Alan is always a gas, but even Courtney Cox got annoying at the end of Friends with her type A…and that says a lot from this CoCo Dirt Watching gal.
The Biggest Loser (Tuesdays)
To be honest, this one is still gunking up my DVR. Currently , Hell’s Kitchen is running at the same time and with it being at the end of the season, I’m still putting Gordon Ramsay on the top of my Tuesday night lineup. I did try to catch up with Loser on Wednesday, but my sources were telling me that Cougar Town was so good, and I switched. To be honest the contestants were driving me crazy. They were whining and bitching as if they had never seen the show before. Yes. You will be hollered at by Jillian. Yes. It is going to suck trying to work all that weight off with four people topping the scales at well over 400 pounds. This, my weight losing wannabes, is not your usual day. Look where your usual day got you. Rinse. Lather. Repeat. The other thing that assures I never watch this show in real time is the fact that there is maybe 45 minutes of actual programming leaving an hour and fifteen minutes of actual commercials and what I call Blatant Product Placement. This BPP goes well beyond Reese’s Pieces and Coors in E. T. and even worse than the spoof in Wayne’s World. This is when one or both of the trainers takes some of the contestants aside and teaches them to use Ziplock bags for portioning or chew Trident gum to quench their hunger. They are all something stupid like that. I get it. To be honest, it is really no different than another 30 second commercial. Therefore, watching this show on the DVR is a lot of work fast forwarding. I wonder how many calories I burn doing that!?
Cougar Town (Wednesday)
If I haven’t said it already, this show is HILARIOUS. Courtney Cox has hit one out of the park with this one. It was good to see Drew Carey’s friend/girlfriend/wife come back on the small screen. I always liked her. This will for sure get a season pass on the DVR.
Grey’s Anatomy (Thursday)
GEORGE! YOU’RE KILLING ME! I cried for the entire two hour season premiere because of the death of George O’Malley. Meredith and McDreamy are getting on very well if I say so myself. Rumor is that Ellen Pompeo will be gone for part of the season as she just had a baby, so we will see how that pans out. Sounds like we will get a few McDreamy storylines out of her leave. This baby fact brings me to Miss Izzie Stevens. Back from the dead, she’s getting a new lease on life with her new diagnosis of living with cancer. Katherine Heigl has just adopted a 10 month old special needs baby from Korea. Her plan is to take some time with her. McSteamy and Little Grey are moving in together…we will see how long that lasts with maybe-lesbian-McSteamy-ex-friend-with-benefits, Callie Torres living across the hall. Cristina Yang and Dr. What’s His Name with post traumatic stress syndrome are heating up and her attitude is too. This should be an awesome season now that we find out that Seattle Grace and Mercy West hospitals, both located in Shonda Rhymes fictional Seattle will be merging and downsizing is inevitable. So can you tell this is my favorite?!
Parks and Recreation (Thursday)
Sorry Amy Poehler. You’re off the list. I can’t watch this anymore. It’s no good. Maybe Poehler should stick to what she’s really good at …writing and starring in hilarious movies and her SNL gig. I love you Amy. I don’t blame you and yes, we can still be friends.
Coming up for further review….
I do want to make a note here that I don’t watch Dancing With The Stars, though my mother does. Maybe I’ll show her how to get her own blog….. love you mom!
Keep watching and let me know what I’m missing out on.
Candy of the Week: Candy Corn Dots. They’re wonderful. Just don’t try and eat a whole box. Yes, from experience.
