Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, September 14, 2009

September 14, 2009 by  

Oh Mondays, you are such a tease. Little by little all of our Monday faves are returning.  Tonight we welcome back ONE TREE HILL, one of my personal faves GOSSIP GIRL, and NBC kicks off the daily installment of THE JAY LENO SHOW.

By this time next week almost all the Monday night shows will be back with new episodes, and well…we’ll be screwed.  Time to get a second (or maybe third) DVR if you want to keep up with the best of Monday night TV.

Check out the handy chart below to get a glimpse of the Monday night line-up from the major networks this Fall.

Going back to Cali…to Cali…to Cali…
Things might be a little quiet on my end tomorrow.  I’m getting on a plane at the crack of dawn to head to Los Angeles for the week.  Follow @gmmr and @duckydoestv for updates on our crazy trip.

    I’m also excited to not watch Leno tonight. Nothing against Jay, but NBC royally pissed me off with the decision to give him this hour every weekday.

    I’m super busy at work this week and planned to catch up on most of this week’s tv over the weekend and next week when I’m off, but I don’t think I can wait that long to watch Greek. I may have to make an exception (this must mean it’s important to me – the only other show I’m making an exception for this week is my beloved Supernatural). Gossip Girl will go on the dvr.

    Btw Karen – Happy belated birthday! Hope you had a good one.

    I’m sad that CBS decided to break up the pairing of HIMYM and BBT, especially since “Accidentally on Purpose” is showing up on alot of “worst new shows” lists.
