Fall TV Preview: Thursday
Did you think I forgot about you? I was in meetings all day, but, don't worry, TV was never far from my mind.
8 pm: Ugly Betty (ABC), Survivor (CBS), My Name Is Earl (NBC), ‘Til Death (Fox), Smallville (CW)
8:30 pm: The Office (NBC), Happy Hour (Fox)
9 pm: Grey’s Anatomy (ABC), CSI (CBS), Deal or No Deal (NBC), The O.C. (Fox), Supernatural (CW)
10 pm: Six Degrees (ABC), Shark (CBS), ER (NBC)
I don't really watch any of the returning shows. I occasionally get sucked into Survivor. I have a love/hate relationship with Grey's Anatomy. Mostly hate, though. I figured out what I don't like about it: their complete lack of professionalism makes me anxious. Like, when their patient is having a seizure or something and they're not paying attention because they're talking about their stupid personal problems, I get really nervous. (Yes, I am extremely anal.) But people swear by My Name is Earl and The Office, so I might add those to the agenda.
New shows: Ugly Betty, an adaptation of popular Colombian telenovela Betty La Fea, is getting a lot of buzz. And I'm looking forward to the new J.J. Abrams show Six Degrees. How many seasons do you think it will be until I get annoyed with it? Not too excited about the James Woods legal drama, Shark.
