So many fun things to watch!

Well, it may not feel like fall. But at least we know it is because our shows are coming back!
I have to say, I thought The Office premiere last week was very so-so. That show works better in 1/2 hour format (and I guess I'm more of a 30 Rock fan). But I still enjoy a completely awkward and maddening Michael Scott.
So what am I looking forward to this week??

Wed 10/1 - Pushing Daisies premiere. I tried to watch this last season and never really got hooked. But I LOVE the costume and set design and Casey's dad does all the Special FX for it, so I'll be tuning in!
Wed 10/1 - Project Runway. This week's episode looks SO good. Tears and tears a streaming down. Oh Kenley. Love a little Bravo reality drama.
NOTE: Bravo is airing almost the entire season of PR today, leading up to tonight's episode. So if you've missed any or want to check it out, set your DVR to Bravo!
Wed 10/1 - Friday Night Lights. HOOORAY! Casey and I love this show. But there's a catch here. The show only airs on Directv, channel 101 and it's UNCUT (no commercials). I guess it's a promotion with Directv. Good thing we're on the Directv boat. If you don't have Directv, I think you have to wait till January for the NBC airing. Crazy!
Thurs 10/2 - NO Office this week. And 30 Rock doesn't start till 10/30. Ho-hum. Guess I'll check out the Vice Presidential debate.
Fri 10/3 - I thought I'd be watching Friday Night Lights. Maybe we'll save the Wed episode for this night.
Sat 10/4, Sun 10/5 - LDS General Conference. Three cheers for the BYU channel and Tivo. We can watch it when our kids take a nap.

and in the near future....
Sun 11/23 - 24! Jack is back! And this season looks a little different. The preview shows all sorts interesting shots. A detour from the constant CTU set and Ventura county footage. Can't wait!

Anyone know when LOST starts....?

We have the last season of Pushing Daisies on DVD if you want to borrow--it really is good. And YES, I LOVE the set design and costumes!

I am totally loving HEROES this season...sooooo good!

And btw, we have DirectTv, so if you really need your FNL fix, we can record it and burn you a copy on DVD. Let me know...

Oh how our TIVO fills up so fast this time of year too. We love a lot of the same shows. We are going to start watching Pushing Daisies too to see what Parry has been up too. We didn't see any last season, hopefully we won't be to lost.

I am so excited for the stare at Tim Riggins hour on Wednesday. Oops, I mean Friday Night Lights.
I am glad we have DirecTV. I don't know that I could wait until January very well. I hope this season is more like the first in goodness than the second. I really want it to survive.

I'm so excited that fall shows are back on, too. I think Lost is January, though... boo. I think it's a tie between Lost and The Office for my two favorite shows right now!

I don't think LOST starts until next year. Sad. Very sad.

We have Dish Network! Ahhhh!!!! I really can't watch Friday Night Lights this week with the rest of you? Major bummer. But I will be enjoying Project Runway so much. And CAN'T WAIT for 24!

I have to agree with you on the premiere of the Office. I thought they definitely could have done better. Lost starts beginning of January, I LOVE that show! I actually just started watching Fringe, I think it's done by some of the guys that do Lost and it's really good!

K, that last comment was from Jenni, not Jarond. Sorry, for some reason I was logged in as him.

no dvr for me, we have recently cut cable off. So I'm watching everything online. I just started watching Friday Night Lights and finished all the seasons a few months ago, I swear I watched them all in like 1 week. So much for working. Anyhoo, it's been so long that I forgot about them. thanks for the reminder!!!

I am also very excited for all of my shows to come back! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one that has a schedule of shows.
