I watch far more television in the summer than I do during the school year. That wasn't always the case though. I used to seriously schedule out my programs and DVR order. Back in my Michaels work days, talk of the previous nights shows dominated the lunch room.

But then I had Connor, and my TV time became less. Which was odd because he went to bed at 7, but I was usually too tired to focus on 32 Law and Orders. Then I added a child in the mix. By the time bed times came around, I was a zombie. Then came Chris. By the time I get 3 sets of teeth brushed, 3 bodies bathed, lotioned, and dressed and then all 3 to sleep..... I'm asleep!

But the summer it's all good. I DVR alot and watch most of it on Friday and Saturday nights. Plus we watch Big Brother which comes on 3 nights a week, so that keeps you busy in itself. Some of my favorites this summer have been:
Covert Affairs
Burn Notice
Rizzoli and Isles
Covert Affairs
Franklin and Bash
Drop Dead Diva
Army Wives (this year it was more of a spring show)

I am not a Bachelor fan like most, but a couple of times I caught a few minutes of Bachelor Pad and laughed my butt off. One episode they were tossing eggs and opposite sexes backs to questions like "who are you least attracted to". Seriously? They sign up for that? Then one night one couple will be making out and the next week the guy is with another girl and then the first girl is pissed. People like that make me laugh (and sort of feel good about myself).

I have not really thought too much about the fall lineup yet. I watch when I can with the exception of Grey's Anatomy. That's my chill with a glass of wine night! I am very disappointed that Brothers and Sisters is not returning. I can't believe it was cancelled before Desperate Housewives. WTH? I have not really noticed any new shows that look too promising for me. That's ok, it leaves more time for reading (and blogging)!

What will you be watching?

I have never heard of any of those summer shows. What is wrong with me?

I'm looking forward to Pan Am. I think that it looks like a lot of fun! And, I love 'period' a different era.

I don't get into the Bachelor either. I totally don't understand the hype. So fake...
