Fall TV - Whatcha Watchin'

It's no secret that I'm the TV queen and this Fall is no different. I'm committed to watching every show with even the tiniest bit of buzz and reporting back to you about whether or not it's worth watching. Of course you'll have to bear in mind that all opinions are that of a woman who will religiously watches the new 90210 and pretty much anything Bravo churns out (With the exception of that awful Dallas show. What is that about? I have no idea why I hate it so much, but I really, really do.).

Anyway, here's what I've watched so far....

The Playboy Club - Don't judge me, I'm in Mad Men withdrawal, ok? I mean I had to at least give it a shot. The best/worst thing about the show is Eddie Ciberian's piss poor Don Draper impression. And then I remembered that Leanne Rimes let's that Don-a-be whisper sweet nothings into her ear every single night. Distracting to say the least.

The Verdict: Stick a stiletto in this one because this show is DEAD. (Sadly you'll only get this joke if you've actually watched this piece of crap. Needless to say, I'm hopeful you have no idea what I'm talking about.)

The Ringer - There's a lot of buzz about this show so I was very curious to check it out. The concept is pretty intriguing (a twin fakes her death and leaves her sister to take over her life). The execution is cheesy in the extreme. But lucky for Sarah Michelle Gellar, it's just the kind of cheddar that I love. Everything from the terrible special effects to the far fetched events that transpire throughout this 60 minutes of gouda practically scream telenovella.

The Verdict: Pour yourself a cheap glass of wine and grab a box of Wheat Thins, this one is cheese-tastic fun.

Two Broke Girls - The promos promise a script heavy on the sarcasm and one liners so I absolutely had to give this one a shot. And it was decent. A couple of funny moments leave me hopeful that this show will continue to get better. That combined with my girl crush on Kat Dennings will have me tuning in for a few more weeks.

The Verdict: I'll stay tuned to see if this one eventually lives up to its promise.

So, what are you guys watching? Tell me everything in the comments. You know me, I hate to miss out on crappy television.

I'm waiting for Grimm and Once Upon a Time. They start in about a month.

I watched 2 Broke Girls and thought it was funny enough. I like the concept and that they are actually going to tell us the "total" cash earned that episode, and their grand total. I'm looking forward to watching more.
Did you ever watch Accidentally On Purpose? I LOVED that show, but they didn't continue it, sadly.
Oh and Glee's premier last night...not good! I was very disappointed.

So... I'm kind of in love with the show Castle. A writer, mystery, Nathan Fillion? What's not to love?
Really. I really really really love that show.

I have Ringer taped and I'm looking forward to Once Upon a time - I hope it's good.

I don't usually jump on new shows, but my sister and I had to check out Ashton's intro on 2 & a Half Men, so we ended up sticking around for 2 Broke Girls. Liked it enough that I'll probably tune in for Ep2.

Saw Playboy Club, and yeah, probably not going to watch again. I do want to check out Ringer though. My sister watched The New Girl with Zooey Deschanel yesterday and rated it around the same as 2 Broke Girls.

Looking forward to the Criminal Minds premiere tonight and Fringe later this week!

I'm really looking forward to Revenge tonight. Hope it lives up to the hype.

I'm sad you ladies didn't watch Up All Night. It looks hilarious! I watched about half of the pilot and it cracked me up. I am waiting for the schedule release on the show BFF, it looks hilarious and awesome and maybe like they peeked at my life before making it.

Ok, I can't watch Eddie Cibrian. He is married to the horrid LeAnn "I Used To Be The Size of a Normal Human Being", plus, when I was growing up, he was the town rapist on The Young and the Restless and that's all I see when I look at those dimples. (Not that I've been watching Y&R for the last 20 years, or something...whatever...)

I'm still in mourning that SUITS is off the air until next friggin summer. wtf, USA.

I'm just excited for new HIMYM and lots of reality trash-tv. Also, in serious love with Cinemax's STRIKE BACK. Best show evah. Serious British hotties.

You know what I like! Vampire Diaries of course and the new teen one by same writer (and I do love K.W. too!)The Secret Circle.

New adult ones(sort of):
Grimm (coming soon)-Based on Grimm fairytales. Can't wait!

Unforgettable-not too bad, girl detective with a condition where she remembers every. single. thing.

I refuse to watch Buffy in this new show. If she isn't kicking demon ass it just isn't the same.

Looking forward to the return of The Big Bang Theory!

I did enjoy the new season of Torchwood, but it's over already. Poof. Blink and you missed it.

AND me and the girls enjoy us some Doctor Who (yeah, we're nerds), but we don't get BBC America, so we have to wait for my husband to download it for us. Currently, I'm three episodes behind and not happy about it.

I'm looking forward to "New Girl" with Zooey Deschanel. She's a great actress. :)

Glee and Supernatural are both on my watch list! :D
