So much t.v, so little time

Every September I am pulled in many different directions. Why? It's the start of a new t.v. season and there are numerous shows that require my perusal and discerning taste to choose which shows to add to my tivo schedule. I have several shows that are conflicting with one another and I need to decide soon what I want to watch now and what I will watch during the summer. Do you realize the kind of planning it takes to establish a satisfactory viewing week? I know that many of you think that I watch too much television, but I really only stick with the stuff that ends up on the tivo (and some of that I don't even get to). Since purchasing my tivo, I find that my "mindless" t.v. watching has declined exponentially. That's right. I'm an efficient television watcher. Professional, even. I should market my skillz, bitches.

So what new shows are making the cut? Which ones do you have season passes to? I'm going to need a more detailed fall television post from a fellow professional television watcher! -Lydia

As of right now (shows I have added to the roster, but am not willing to completely commit to):

Smith - starring my runner-up Simon Baker. Chances of becoming a regular (on a scale of ten): 8

Ugly Betty - buzz is good, haven't seen an episode yet. Chances: 7.5

The Class - first two episodes are just okay. Chances: 5

Brothers and Sisters - recorded on tivo, but I haven't gotten to it yet. Word of mouth chances: 7

Studio 60 - pretty good, kept me entertained for the first episode. Chances: 8

What about you, Lydia?

The shows I watch are...

The Class- probably not a long-term committment

The Biggest Loser- definitely watching the entire season

Studio 60- not that impressed

New Adventures of Old Christine- much better this season, especially with Wanda Sykes having more air time

Two & a Half Men- so cute

How I met your mother- last season was cute... this season is a bit dramatic

Oh! And does anyone watch Weeds on Showtime? It is so good... it is my number 1 pick this season.
