Fall TV: Decide What Makes the Cut...

This week was wonderful. I was super busy, got a lot of things done and fall TV is here!

My love of TV is comparable to that of Abed's from Community, except I'm not weird & I form most of my opinions based off of Tim Goodman's from "The Hollywood Reporter." (Our opinions line up way too much!)

We watch mostly single-camera, 30-minuted comedies with endearing characters. That's our main genre. (No crime dramas in this house!)

We also have 17 shows currently on our "to watch" list. 

Which, even for a childless couple in their mid-twenties paying a little something extra for a DVR, is a few too many. But I'm not one to drop a TV show if I've stuck it out for a few years (see: The Office). I'm also not one to shy away from a show with a lot of good buzz surrounding it (see: The Mindy Project).

But cuts have to be made. There's no two ways about it. So I'm sharing my list & want your opinion. Because if I can't cut something out, this blog has to go* ♥

*this is not a factual statement

To Keep Watching:
  • Up All Night
  • The Office
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Modern Family
  • 30 Rock
  • It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia 
  • The League
  • Top Chef
  • Saturday Night Live

On the Fence:
  • Community
  • The Mindy Project
  • Raising Hope
  • New Girl
  • Glee
  • Ben and Kate
I'm Done With It:
  • The New Normal
  • Parenthood

Which of these would you drop? Let me know!

And have a great weekend. I'll be sitting on the couch catching up with everything I missed over the week.

  1. You need to major add Homeland, especially after that Emmy performance!

    1. That's on Showtime. We don't have that or HBO unfortunately! But it's on our long-term "to see" list :)

  2. what do you think about New Girl?? I adore Zooey Deschanel!!!

    xxo, Bev

  3. So you're on the fence about Raising Hope... funny, I feel the same way about this marriage.

  4. I LOVE New Girl & Parenthood. I would definitely drop ben & kate. I wasn't a fan of the premiere.

  5. new girl and parenthood are amazing. ben and kate is hilarious though. i would drop mindy that show didn't seem funny at all more annoying.

  6. I'm a HUGE fan of American Horror Story. I'm hoping this year is as good as last year. I wasn't very thrilled with the New Normal. All hype and not much substance.

  7. My only suggestion: Keep Community in the line-up!

    It has a special place in my heart. Plus, I just think it is great humor ;)

    Happy Weekend!

  8. I like The New Normal. Think it's funny. I also love New Girl. I'm on the fence about the Mindy Prjoect. I want to like it but I'm not sure.

  9. I love New Girl. But I no longer have cable, so I catch everything on the internet after it airs. Can't wait for it to start.

  10. I watch a lot of the same shows as you. I'm also over Parenthood, but I like The New Normal and think the grandmother is a hoot. Another new show that we're watching is Revolution, which reminds me of Lost (my hubby's favorite show ever). I DVR a lot of shows and it's hard to find time to go back and watch them all!

  11. I am loving The New Normal. I have seen so many others say they love Parenthood, that I have thought about watching it on Netflix, why isn't it one of your favorites?

  12. i saw the mindy project and i don't know, wasn't loving it. i like her writing a lot but i just don't think she is that great of an actress.
