Saturday Morning Confessions

Here's my Saturday Morning Confession:  I watch too much tv.  I'm admitting it.  It's not a good thing, but it's not something that I'm willing to change right now.  I read a lot too, so in my mind, as long as I still read a lot and don't just zone out in front of the tv for all of my free/waking hours, then it's okay.




Here's the breakdown of the embarrassing facts (just so you know I'm not kidding)...

{Daily Television Watched}


General Hospital (though often I watch in fast forward mode)
Oprah (well I record daily and watch when I'm interested)
CNN...lots of CNN~ I always watch AC360 and usually have it on throughout the day
The Daily Show
Nightline

{Primetime Television}


Sundays~ Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters
Mondays~ House, 90210, Gossip Girl, Castle
Tuesdays~ NCIS, One Tree Hill, Parenthood, The Good Wife
Wednesdays~ Modern Family, Mr. Sunshine, Off The Map, Blue Bloods
Thursdays~ The Office, Grey's Anatomy, Royal Pains, Private Practice

{Reality Television}
Amazing Race
Whatever Kardashian saga is currently on
Real Housewives (except Atlanta) & Watch What Happens Live that comes on after the seasons I watch
Bethenny (1st "Getting Married", but coming soon "Ever After")
Joan & Melissa/Joan Knows Best
David Tutera's My Fair Wedding (often lots of fast forward involved in this too)

-------------------------
Who Do You Think You Are?  (this is a genealogy show on NBC that is kind of a dumbed down version of a PBS show that I love that Henry Louis Gates does.  It's not really traditional "reality television".)
Brick City (on Sundance, currently 2nd season, more documentary tv than reality tv)

{Cable Television}
I like several Cable Television shows, though I normally watch them on On Demand or via Netflix

Californication
United States of Tara
In Treatment
Weeds
(I'm itching to start watching Boardwalk Empire now that I have HBO, but stupid HBO On Demand doesn't have it, so I'm going to get on the DVDs as soon as they come out!)

See what a ridiculously long list of shows I watch? I have a hard time picking favorites because I love many for different reasons.... the characters, the drama, they make me laugh out loud, they are mindless to watch, etc.

What about you?  Do you have a favorite show or favorite genera?

I can't wait for Sunday's new Desperate Housewives!

I am in love with the Real Housewives shows. Love WWHL too. On the 22nd Miami premieres...I have a weird feeling it might not be any better than DC. I don't know why.

I missed the first episode of Mr. Sunshine, but was excited to see it is FREE on iTunes.

Oh Kara
You are missing some of my or Brooks' favorites
Go Diego Go
Wonder Pets
Dora
Caillou

No seriously Modern Family, Parks and Rec, Community, Office and of course Glee (with some fast forwarding, but less now that we aren't always listening to Journey!)

I love Glee, Gossip Girl, Real Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, Desperate Housewives, all the Thursday night comedy, and I think my current fave is Parenthood...love that show...I think it is one of the best to come on in a long time.

I watch Glee and Sarah's House (HGTV). I think I must be missing some good TV.
