Sweeps Are Almost Over. Now What?

The NY Times Style section (of course) has an article titled, very appropriately for this blog, "I Do Have a Life; I'm Watching it Now" that examines finale madness and the letdown or relief that follows. I know Bailey is looking forward to the end of May, personally I'm dreading it. What will Bailey, Red, Wilder and I have to talk about IRL? Books? We have very different taste in books. Movies? There are only so many one can go to. Work? Bah! All I can say is thank goodness for the US Weekly Fantasy League!

So open question: this summer what will you be doing, and almost as importantly, what will you be talking about, when you've been freed from the shackles of episodic television?

I'm going to be working on my comprehensive theory of US foreign policy.

Just kidding. There is still TV in the summer. I'm looking forward to the return of The Closer, Rescue Me, and Entourage. And possibly Deadwood, but I have a lot of catching up to do.

Thanks for the link but of those shows, all I really watch is The Closer. Though I'll probably get sucked into The Hills. But an hour and a half a week compared to the . . . embarassingly large number of hours of the regular season?

I might have to start baking. Or exercising. Or talking to people. Assuming I still have friends left after sweeps.

See my previous post. I think that explains my major summer activity. Actually, that covers my primary activity for the next 18 years.

Yet, when I have a moment, I will be watching Entourage and Deadwood. And there is lots and lots of baseball!

There's also the secondary void -- the embarassingly large number of hours I currently spend reading about TV on the internet.
