How Did You Do on Monday Night?

March 9, 2010 by  

I’ve decided it’s impossible. There’s just no way to watch all the great shows that are on Monday nights and still manage to sleep.  I failed miserably last night (no thanks in part to the puppy who required my full attention.) I still have so many shows to watch, and tonight I have IDOL, LOST and PARENTHOOD.  All that and Dan is coming over to record the next TV Talk Podcast. Yikes.

Last night I managed to check out CHUCK (my thoughts coming later this morning), HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (eh, didn’t need Jennifer Lopez), THE BIG BANG THEORY (Sheldon as Gollum was pure perfection).  And that’s it.

Sadly I had to drop LIFE UNEXPECTED all together from my DVR….but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to watch the show, it just means I won’t watch it on Mondays.  I’ll try to catch it online around lunch time today.

Erik is covering HOUSE for us, so that’s a show that I’m almost ok with not watching until later on this week.

I’ll make it a priority to watch GREEK when I get home tonight, but who knows when I’m going to get to DAMAGES (last night’s episode and the two before that).

And just this morning I realized that I completely forgot about GOSSIP GIRL.  Thankfully my DVR is all kinds of kickass so it recorded it for me.  Oh for the love of Chuck and Blair, there’s just too much TV on.

Am I the only one completely overwhelmed by Monday night TV?  How did you guys make out?  Which shows did you watch and which ones will have to sit on your DVR until you’re good and ready?  Favorite shows of the night?

    I too failed miserably. i had a family emergency that kept me at the hospital most of the night, but I MADE time to watch Chuck. I’m sure glad I did too. It was just what I needed☺

    Jaime, I’m sorry to hear that. Hope all is well with your family.

    i like to keep up with HIMYM, Big Bang, Chuck, and Castle…
    and my wife likes Gossip Girl, Make It or Break It and Greek…
    but i don’t think any of Monday night TV is MUST watch on Monday night for us…

    last night i think we watched last week’s Law & Order and this week’s HIMYM (agreed that Lopez was unneccessary wallpaper)…

    We may get to Chuck or Castle tonight, but most of it will probably wait until Thursday at least with Idol and Lost tonight (i post running commentary on both shows each week) and Human Target, Idol, and the ABC Comedy block tomorrow…

    there are only so many hours…

    peace… love… bdg…

    I watched Chuck, and when it was over I immediately hopped on Twitter to see what everyone was saying about it, I didn’t get off until almost two hours later! People were going crazy last night with the tweets. I loved Chuck Vs The Beard , can’t wait until next week. “Chuck Vs The Tic Tac” I wonder what Tic Tacs have to do with anything….

    I am so behind already :)–watched HIMYM, BBT and House last night. Watched Trauma, Greek, Chuck and Castle this morning. Still need to watch 24, Damages and more later today.

    It was Chuck, Drag Race and Castle for me. I am considering dropping LUX if it doesn’t get better. Right now I hate everyone but Ryan. Monday’s are just too full. Greek will come later in the week with LUX.

    As bad as Monday’s are, especially with Gossip Girl back, Tuesday’s are so much worse for me. At 8 (CST), there’s Lost, AI, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Glee…ugh. And that’s just one hour out of 3. I also watch Parenthood, Melrose Place, the Forgotten, and The Good Wife. Oh, and White Collar which is over tonight. No idea what I will do when Dancing w/ the Stars comes on. I normally don’t watch but the “celebrities” this time around have drawn me in. Luckily my DVR can record 4 shows at one time (thanks, AT&T U-verse) but I am spending my whole weekend getting caught up on shows. It’s a vicious cycle that must end, especially w/ the weather getting nicer now.

    It was so nice to have House back last night. I hate Mondays without House and I have pretty much given up on HOw I met your mother. They really need to give it up already and tells us who she is and go on with the show.

    I watched How I Met Your Mother from 8-8:30, Then Chuck from 8:30-9:20ish, then Gossip Girl from 9:20ish-10, and then Big Bang Theory from 10-10:30. It made for a long nonstop night, but you gotta do what you gotta do!

    I managed to watch all but one of my monday night shows. I got through
    The Big Bang Theory (Hilarious!)
    How I Met Your Mother(Some funny parts… slightly frustrating plot line. I was finally over BarBin ((Or RoBarney for the n00bs)) and they through that back into play for an ep.)
    Chuck(So excited! Amazing episode. My favorite two parts… when Morgan found out about Chuck (duh) and the preview for next week!!!)
    And the one I didn’t watch… Lost. Unfortunately all five people in my household watch this show. So last night when the main three watched the rest of our regular programming Lost was skipped. For now.
