Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, August 31, 2009

August 31, 2009 by  

One week from today is the official kickoff to the Fall season.  Can you stand it? I’m overwhelmed with what needs to happen between then and now.

But really the only thing I can focus on today is tonight’s premiere of GREEK at 9pm on ABC Family. I’m happy to report that I’ve heard from many GMMR readers over the past few weeks that they’ve given the show a shot and that they love it! Welcome to GREEK Row my friends…glad to have you. Make sure you come back tomorrow to talk about our fave kids from CRU.

    Greek! and the Weeds season finale. I am currently plotting for the new season. I am scared.

    The new Fall season flat-out freaks my freak! I am already stressing about NEVER leaving the house on Wednesdays (as I’ll be watching at least 4 hours per night!). But I’m excited for old favourites to return (like Castle, Fringe, Dollhouse) and new favourites to develop (one word: GLEE!).

    Same as Patty – Greek and Weeds. If I’ve learned anything from Weeds this year, it’s that I have no idea what Jenji Kohan is going to do and to expect anything. I’m excited to see where she leaves things off for next year. And Greek….just, yay!

    Thank God for DVR. I dunno how I would be able to get in my 30 hours of tv watching per week otherwise. Greek is back. WOOHOO!
