So you are back for more? Want to see more snipits?

Well you have come to the right place!  I am putting all the new previews in one place for YOUR viewing pleasure. My post for the offerings from Sunday to Tuesday can be found here.
This post will pick up with the new shows in order by day beginning on Wednesday.  


WEDNESDAY
 The season's most peculiar new offering comes in the form of ABC's new comedy, The Neighbors with Jamie Gertz. LOVE Jamie Gertz and as much as I am a little ashamed to admit it LOVE this show.  So strange but oddly I couldn't turn away.  I can see this being my new guilty pleasure.  You move into a new neighborhood only to find out all the neighbors are aliens. They cry green slimy stuff from their ears!!! 


ABC will also bring a new drama to the 10pm slot called Nashville. Connie Britton, Powers Booth, Jonathan Jackson and Hayden Panettiere. A fading Nashville superstar is forced to team up with a teen sensation or face the loss of her tour and promotion of her latest records. 
It has a great cast so I would say this one has potential. Hey who isn't happy 'Lucky' is in something other than General Hospital? 

NBC brings two new comedies and a drama covering an area which in my opinion is usually VERY lacking FIREMEN!

First up is Animal Practice. NBC makes it easy to find all you could ever want to know about their new shows.  Find it all here. NBC Animal Practice with Justin Kirk.    Not really sure how I feel about this one, will probably give it a chance. It oddly makes me think of Scrubs if J.D. and the gang were treating animals. (but hey who didn't like Scrubs in the good old days?)

The second new comedy from NBC is Guys with Kids.  Three guys with guess what KIDS.  I didn't want to like this but I have to say, so far I do.  Tempest Bledsole is the wife of one of the guys and watching her reminds me of her days on the Cosby show.  Also, there is a laugh track. Oh I do miss laugh tracks! Too many comedies these days don't have them and I am actually a sucker for a laugh track.(For all the info you can possible want you can look it up at NBC.com) 
   

Finally from NBC on Wednesday will be Chicago Fire.  For you house fans here is your 'Chase' fix, Jesse Spencer leads the line up.  I honestly don't need anything more than that oh and of course the fire uniform.  




The last new offering on Wednesday is Arrow at 8 pm on the CW. We have kind of seen this done several different ways before but it has a hot guy with no shirt shooting a bow and arrow, so it can't be allll bad, right???

THURSDAY

So that brings us to Thursday.  The first new offering for us to talk about is the Last Resort on ABC.  I am not going to begin to pretend that I get this one.  It is NOT in my wheelhouse.  A submarine full of military folks refuse to follow orders and blow up Pakistan so they end up having to take over some island and threaten to blow up the world.  Er ok not really seeing the tie in on the Thursday night line up but could be interesting and might give the men in our lives something to watch.  



CBS brings Elementary to the 10 pm time slot.  A twist on the old Sherlock Holmes just as we lose House (which for the record until last night I had no clue was loosely based on the aforementioned Holmes).  Anyway, this rendition finds Holmes in the US just out of rehab with his 'sober-coach' Joan Watson.  You be the judge on this one. 
 

Only two to go, are you hanging in there with me???
Lastly on Thursday the CW brings us an old classic redone, Beauty and the Beast.  A little darker, a little creepier and staring Kristen Keurk but at the end of the day it is the fairy tale you remember. 

 

Saturday has nothing new so FINALLY the last new show for the fall is from 

FRIDAY 

There might be a reason CBS is starting Made in Jersey on the death night for television.  A street-smart lawyer (Janet Montgomery) tries to compete at a fancy New York firm. Typical CBS fare. Kind of makes me think of My Cousin Vinny if the cousin was a girl, making a name for herself.  I didn't have any interest in this until I watched the clip.  I wouldn't break my neck to watch it but it does look interesting. 






Well for anyone who actually read through this, Thanks!  I enjoyed looking all the clips up and watching them.  I may try to review the summer shows that will soon be out to fill our television voids! Until then, toodles!!!

taking a break from my normal posts

To talk about my other love.  Yes I am a tv junkie.  I would love to say we never watch tv but that would be a lie.  I LOVE it, it takes me away from the real world so I can live vicariously through someone else.  This being said, I can explain I have been a little distracted lately as this is my favorite time of the year because all the networks have their 'upfronts' where they announce the new shows for the coming year and it is also that awful time when we find what they have cancelled.  This year wasn't so bad, most of the shows I loved that ended had long known they were going like Chuck and One Tree Hill.  I think my biggest upset is Awake.  It is such a smart show and they just didn't give it time.  Alas it is the manner of the beast.  
So tonight I began a journey, maybe a quest even, to find previews for all the new shows.  I am going to go through day by day and give my opinions on all the new shows (along with a clip).  So if you aren't interested just feel free to ignore the rest of this.  I do have an update on Baby Waffle and his speech but I will make that a separate post.  This might actually be come about 3 or 4 posts so the entries don't end up colossal.  And, away we go. 
     First of all I got my schedule information here fall-tv-grid-day-by-day-schedule-abc-cbs-fox-nbc-cw/falltvgrid2012r4/   
There seems to be a big shake up as far as old shows and slots but I am only going to address the new shows for now. Also all times I list are eastern.


SUNDAY
 There is only one show to be brought to Sundays.  It is 666 Park Avenue on ABC at 10 pm.  This show has a little for everyone, Vanessa Williams, Terry O'Quinn and so many more.  A Midwest couple is offered the job of managing an upscale apartment building. All I can say is if it seems too good to be true.... RUN! 
I mean really what do you expect when 666 is RIGHT THERE IN THE NAME!!! 

All that said I will definitely be checking this out!





MONDAY
 We have three to look at for Monday the first is Partners on CBS at 8:30.   Sophia Bush (Brooke OTH) and Michael Urie (Ugly Betty) to name a few.  This is very reminiscent of Will and Grace so while I would like to like this, not sure I will. Let's let you decide.  

Next up is The Mob Doctor on Fox following Bones. 'Matt Sorensen' from Friday Night lights caught my attention first but really there are quite a few faces in this one.  It's no House but with that no longer and option this might fill the void. I really didn't want to like this but based on this clip I think I might get drawn in.  

 Finally the last new show for Mondays is Revolution. The ONLY bad thing I can find to say about this one is they have made the mistake of putting it up against Castle and if you know me you know that will always come first!  There was only one face I recognized and even with that it is no one I would swoon to a show just because they are in it. However it is all about the 'grid' going down and that is such a big thing in this day and age.  I HIGHLY recommend Revolution based on this clip! 




TUESDAY

Tuesday has quite a few additions beginning with Vegas on CBS at 10pm.  Seems interesting and has quite few familiar faces.  Set in the '60's when Vegas began.  Dennis Quaid rides rough to hold down crime. I should add it is inpired by a true story. Not really my thing but I can see it would have potential with the right person which probably means CBS is the perfect spot for it.  You be the judge.


Next up are Ben & Kate and The Mindy Project both on Fox following their established comedies Raising Hope and The New Girl respectively. Ben & Kate has potential.  I really see it more as a rom com movie than a weekly comedy but I will reserve judgement. 
The Mindy Project is where your favorite aggravating Indian from the Office has landed. This was actually one of the first clips I came across and I have to say I am not impressed.  I really like Mindy Kaling in general so I may give it a change.  I just have trouble seeing her as a doctor. 

NBC is also bringing two new comedies to Tuesday to round off their comedy block.  First Matthew Perry is back (again) in Go On.  Like most of his post Friends work it looks good, it would have to he is a funny guy but somehow he doesn't seem to have much luck.  Maybe this will be the one to make people forget he will always be remember as Chandler Bing! 




NBC's second new Tuesday comedy so far wins in my book for looking the most promising.  The New Normal has it all, racism, bigotry, homophobia and that is just out of the mouth of the grandmother!  The story is a touching one of two gay men hoping to find a surrogate to give them their dream of a baby which in turn makes them decide to help the surrogate achieve her dream of becoming a lawyer. 


Finally the last new offering for Tuesdays is Emily Owens, MD on the CW.  It will follow Hart of Dixie. Especially following a show as good as Hart of Dixie I am going to go ahead and call this one LAME.  I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't cut before Christmas.  Maybe it is better than the clip but based on this clip I have to say FAIL!!


So that takes us through Tuesday but since this is getting long I will start a new post for the rest of the week.  Hope you enjoyed this enough to come back!!!

time for a change

Well the time has finally come! I had to break down and change my saying at the top of my blog.  I am no longer cloth diapering (poos just got wayy too bad), he has officially stopped nursing as of I want to say April 25th or so and there is NO way on Earth I could begin to still wear that kid short of one of those back pack thingies.  

The best update would have to be that he is really sleeping so much better.  A couple of weeks ago he started having me rock him to sleep but he would sleep in his own bed for at least a few hours after that.  NOW, he puts up a little fight BUT he is going into his own bed under his own power at the same time his sissy goes!  OH and he is staying in his own bed almost every night until at least 5 am. 

Sleep for the win!!!!
