Fall 2007 TV Schedule and Premiere Dates

OK, It’s that time of the year again. The season premieres are coming and I’m getting psyched up to watch it all. Well maybe not all of it, but at least some of it. I’m going to lay out the premiere dates and talk a bit about which shows I’m excited about.

See here for my annotated TV schedule.

BTW, I’m totally stealing all the premiere dates and schedule info straight from TVSquad.com, so thanks to them. Check it out after the break. Read the rest of this entry »

Out of the office…

Well, I don’t really have an office for this venture, per se, but I will be on vacation, far from my television for a couple days. Don’t worry though, my trusty SageTV system is recording everything for my return.

What’s in, what’s out

Well, here’s my take on what the upfronts mean to me. What shows I’m excited about, what shows I’m sorry to see leave, and which I’m glad are gone.

See the list of what’s canceled, staying, new and what’s moving after the break.

BTW, Many thanks to the bloggers at TVSquad for their compilation of these lists.  Read the rest of this entry »

Vacation Notice!

Gentle readers, you may have noticed, I haven’t updated much in the last week. That’s because I’m in Hawaii, enjoying a birthday-celebratory vacation. A little present to myself as it were. I probaby won’t have any other updates until I get back, but until then, my computer is hopefully diligently recording everything I’m missing.

Until I write again, Aloha!

Season Premieres are approaching!

Well, in my surfing, I found a list of all the premieres by date.

Thanks TVSquad

Have fun without me!

Well, I’m on vacation this weekend, far from my television. I’ll probably watch something Sunday when I get back, but who knows.

Oh, TV listings, how you’ve failed me.

Well, sometimes the computer's wrong. I ended up missing the Scrubs episode on Tuesday because there was a wrong listing for a previous episode of Scrubs. So now I have no idea what episode I watched that night. The other thing I somehow didn't record was American Inventor. Thank whoever for BitTorrent.
