My 2012 Fall Schedule :)  
What's nice is that for the first time in a while, I only have two heavy days, and on Tuesday, two of the shows are reality competitions and I tend to fastforward through most of the filler, and three half-hour sitcoms, so not bad. The trouble night is still, of course, Thursday. And chances are fairly high that I won't get to watching most of those shows until Friday unless it's a Vampire Diaries rerun. Still, lighter schedule than usual. Yay. :)

MONDAY

Dancing with the Stars
Revolution

* I already posted the trailer for Revolution. It could fall apart, and if it does, I'll be quick to drop it. And DWTS depends solely on the cast. I may stick with it, I may drop it.

TUESDAY

NCIS
The Voice
Raising Hope
Hart of Dixie
New Girl
Go On
Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23
Vegas

Vegas normally wouldn't appeal to me all that much, BUT it stars Dennis Quaid (who was my physical definition of the perfect guy in the 90's) and Jason O'Mara (who I follow in whatever he stars in). So, yeah, I'm there. Hopefully it's good. :) Because of all the shows on at 8, I won't be taping the DWTS results show.

ETA: Oops, forgot Go On -- stars Matthew Perry. I'm there. :)

WEDNESDAY

Survivor
The X-Factor
Nashville

Nashville starts Connie Britton (aka Mrs. Coach), and co-stars Jonathan Jackson. I'm there. Period. Sigh, as for X-Factor, I had no intention whatsoever of watching this, but damnit, I like Demi Lovato and so I'm watching it for her. Damnit.

THURSDAY

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
30 Rock
The X-Factor
Person of Interest
The Office
Parks and Recreation
Glee*
Scandal
Elementary


Glee pretty much is on my schedule based on one thing and one alone: If Dianna Agron returns. All signs point to her not doing so, so chances are incredibly high I will not be watching this. I'll still check out the songs though. :) Elementary, I already posted about, and Scandal, I just caught up on all seven episodes of. I LOVE Kerry Washington, but the commercials and it coming from Shonda Rhimes kept me from watching. I'm glad I gave it another chance though, because it's AWESOME trashy/classy fun with tons of HBIC in place.

FRIDAY

Community
Fringe
Nikita

SUNDAY

The Amazing Race
Revenge
The Good Wife
Once Upon a Time

I decided to give OUAT another chance; it's still not as good as I hoped it would be, but I'm enjoying it enough to finish the season out. (I have seven episodes to go). I may change my mind after the season, but we'll see.

---------

There are a few trailers I haven't seen, and, of course, buzz could grow/fall on shows, so I could have more to add (or detract), but this should roughly be it.

I was actually going to include something about Hockey starting in October, but decided not to, LOL!

Are you going to attempt to see Downton S3 or wait til it airs in January? Or not watch it all? (just curious! :)

Jonathan Jackson is in "Nashville?" UGH, I had no intention of watching that either, but I LOVE him... :/
Arabian: TVarabian on May 19th, 2012 04:25 pm (UTC)
I was only including shows on network TV. I'll still watch Downton. It's not my favorite, but it's enjoyable enough, and I adore Maggie Smith so hard!

Jonathan Jackson is in "Nashville?" UGH, I had no intention of watching that either, but I LOVE him... :/

Yeah, Lucky and MRS. COACH!!! I can't not watch it.

Sonofabitch. Jonathan Jackson is in Nashville? Like the previous poster above, I had absolutely no intention of watching this show until you mentioned he's on it. The things we do when it comes to people we love.

Also, I've stopped watching Survivor many seasons ago, but I think I'm going to watch the next one because it's set in the Philippines! Can't wait to see my home country on TV.

Lastly, I'm gonna have to add DWTS to my schedule come fall because they're doing an All-Stars version and I'm really hoping some of my favorites come back. Mel B. and Misty-May, I'm looking at you.
Arabian: Peter & Olivia01arabian on May 19th, 2012 08:53 pm (UTC)
Yup JJ's in Nashville.

I pretty much stick with Survivor. I've only been to the Manila airport, but, uhm, my brother is half-Filipino, and Ian Somerhalder is there right now.

Ooh, I didn't know they were doing an all-stars version. Chances are pretty good, I'll stick with it this time then.

So cool about your brother being half-Filipino. I find that if you combine an Asian with a white person, they create beautiful-looking babies. /random

What's Ian doing in Manila? Lady Gaga is there too. It's a happening place, lol.
Arabian: Alaric01arabian on May 20th, 2012 11:12 am (UTC)
He's doing something for Penneshoppe (something like that). Apparently, you can expect some billboard of him to pop up soon enough.

My brother was a model for a while, LOL!

You should definitely give OUAT another chance! A friend talked me into watching it & now I'm enjoying it immensely. I haven't seen two last episodes yet, but from what I've heard the finale was fantastic & S2 looks really promising :)
Arabian: Betty01 - Yesarabian on May 19th, 2012 08:51 pm (UTC)
You misunderstood, I am giving it another chance. I stopped after episode 10, but I started it up again on Thursday, and I'm on episode 20 now.

I liked the promo of Nashville so I will watch that. I like the cast and I like the generational aspect it has to it.

Otherwise, ABC drama/soaps have kind of disappointed me this season with the exception of Scandal. I actually think having a shorter season helped Scandal because it was over before it could be bogged down by filler like OUAT and Revenge. And I did watch much of the first season of OUAT. I'm glad it's a hit for Jennifer Morrison and Robert Carlyle but I stopped enjoying it at some point. I think it was the combination of creating so many new characters, some successful while others weren't so much and the dumbing down of characters to make the villains able to get away with stuff...I just lost my patience.
Arabian: JenniferMorrison01arabian on May 20th, 2012 11:15 am (UTC)
Honestly, I wasn't overwhelmed by the Nashville trailer, but yeah, Mrs. Coach and Lucky, I'm just so there. It could be good, but after meeting her, and seeing how she had her best years as an actress as a child (lol), I'm not HP's biggest fan. Ah well.

I was okay with OUAT, but perhaps watching it all at once helped. I think most network shows feel like filler for the most point now. That's one of the reasons I love The Vampire Diaries -- their main filler episode (yeah, they had one) this season would have been a finale on just about any other show -- that much stuff happened, and there were that many twists and turns, and on top of that, there was some fantastic character stuff.

My main beef with OUAT remains - I WANT HOT SHERIFF BACK!

Oh! I didn't know you watched Revenge. Is it really as good as a lot of people say? I'm giving it a chance because one of my friends is really into it, and you know, squeeing over TV is the best when you have others to do it with :)

Once upon a time, had a fantastic finale, so I'm sticking with it for next season.

Fringe I'm glad got another season to end properly, otherwise I might have given up on it. I still really like it, but lately it's become more of a chore to watch. The season finale though, was REALLY good, I'll admit that. And I love having Leonard Nimoy back.

Glee I gave up on, after having said forever that I would, I finally did. And Raising Hope, though good, I just lost interest in.
Arabian: Rebekah02arabian on May 20th, 2012 11:17 am (UTC)
Revenge is very good. I don't think it's GREAT!, but it's certainly one of the better, pulp-y network shows. I'd recommend it.

I wouldn't give up on Fringe, but I am glad it's coming to a close. I will admit that. I finished OUAT -- it's good, but I just want HOT SHERIFF BACK!

Glee, I've continued to watch solely for Dianna Agron/Quinn so with her leaving (which I expect), I'm done. Aww, I think RH continues to be sweet and hilarious.

Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 is hilarious! I usually try to avoid new shows but this show comes on right after Modern Family and I didn't switch off fast enough.
The first scene grabbed me.
Arabian: What's not to Love? (Logan)arabian on May 20th, 2012 11:18 am (UTC)
I really like Krysten Ritter, and the preview (way back last summer) was hilarious, so I always planned on watching it. I'm glad it's doing well.
