In addition:
True Blood - watch to the end of the season coming soon
Being Human - watch until finished on BBC America - probably d/l when Series 2 airs in the UK
Merlin - d/l when Series 2 airs in the UK
Drop Dead Diva - giving a try soon
Skins - still have this on my "to try" list
In addition:
True Blood Season 2 over
Merlin Series 2 over
Drop Dead Diva and Skins - still haven't tried it! 

Why the changes?
  • Sunday: Dexter ended (the fourth season ROCKED!), Being Human started up
  • Monday: I ended up not watching Heroes at all this season.  There were mixed reviews anyway, so I've pretty much taken it off my list.
  • Wednesday: Eastwick was canceled (though I only watched two), Psych changed days, Modern Family I caught up with around Ep. 8 and it's awesome.
  • Thursday: I quickly lost interest in FlashForward, I never tried Vampire Diaries. Burn Notice started back up in January.
  • Friday: Monk ended its 8-season run, Psych moved.  Dollhouse is ending soon, but I kept it up there... :(

What happened with your schedules? I'd love to know. :)

They really need to schedule something on Tuesdays, right? Because I find my Monday nights are just EPIC and then I have nothing left to watch until Thursday/Friday. On Mondays, when everything is firing, I usually watch Gossip Girl, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Castle, Chuck and Greek. Obviously Greek has been away but it is back tonight as well as Chuck so my brain is like KA-BOOM.

Seriously! Although I've been working later on Tuesdays, so it's probably just as well...

OH! I should have added Greek to my "going to try" list.

Greek is adorable! I only picked it up last year myself, but I enjoy it for some light hearted dramedy :)

I picked up a lot more than I had, mostly through not being able to wait for the UK airings, lol. So I watch a lot more than I did before, a helluva lot more.

It's interesting how you've weeded out the weaker shows and kept the others.

I didn't know that you liked Leverage or 30 Rock. Leverage season 1 is coming to LivingTV soon so I think I'm going to try it then. LivingTV has a monopoly on everything now, SPN, Grey's, Criminal Minds...

I can't believe we're already halfway through the TV year.

Yes, I like both Leverage and 30 Rock, though I'm not fannish about them. I've read fic for both and I have a Hardison/Parker (Leverage) icon though.

I don't see Bones or Fringe for Thursdays. I'm surprised. Thursdays are still pretty crazy with those two shows still on.

I'm loosing interest in V and Flashforward, even though they're both on hiatus. I suppose I'll finish the first seasons of both when and if they come back.

Vampire Diaries is loosing me. Last Thursday was a yawn.

*gasp* You've given up Heroes?? Truly surprised there!

I only have about 4-5 true favorites too! :D

I only watched one season of Bones (too much grossness) and I never watched Fringe at all for the same reason.

Yes, can you believe it! I thought I'd hang on to the end, like with Smallville. But I haven't missed it. :(

What are your true favorites?

Humm, let's see if I can narrow these down to the ones I watch live..

Lost (final season)!!
Smallville, of course
True Blood
Big Bang Theory (it's all your fault)!!

How I Met Your Mother (We're actually getting closer to meeting her, can you believe it? It's the only reason I watch. Barney grates on my nerves sometimes.)

There are others, but I DVR those and watch whenever!!

HEHEHE. I'm glad it's my fault you watch BBT live. That's sorta my job around here. ;)

I stopped watching HIMYM live for Chuck. I haven't even watched last week's ep yet! Once they ended BroTP, it changed the show for me. I still watch, but I'm not as fannish.

I hear you. I'm hanging on with the show, just barely.

I be working my DVRs on Mondays and Thursdays, but I'm good. I find myself watching shows on weekends. I know I have no life! :D:D

My schedule is very, very simple.

Doctor Who is on hiatus, Sarah Jane Adventures is on hiatus, Torchwood is on hiatus, Merlin is on hiatus, and Dollhouse is canceled. So basically, I watch NOVA on Tuesdays on PBS, and that's it. *sigh*

I only have a few on hiatus. I'm watching more TV than I have in several years... :O

I recommend all of my bolded shows, but I don't know if our tastes in TV align that well....

Well, I'm really not into comedies, and I can't watch Smallville yet. Although seeing as the bloody show got itself renewed yet again, I'm starting to consider scrapping the experiment.

I was going to pick up Sanctuary, but then I blew through all of the available episodes to get caught up just in time for a cliffhanger preceding a nine month hiatus.

Maybe Being Human or Legend of the Seeker? I dunno. Generally I require space travel in my entertainment, or at least aliens, although I do make exceptions for fantasy stuff every once in a while.

As much as I love Smallville, it's highly uneven. So if you go into it with that expectation, you'll probably enjoy it a lot. Season 9 has been really fun, the closer they get to actual Superman, the more I like it.

Being Human would be really easy to get into. And you watch other BBC shows, so I'd start there.

Legend is cheesy (though getting darker) fun. I bet you'd like that too. ♥

Tuesday's are my least favorite days for that exact reason...there's NOTHING on!

But the lighter side is I have time to catch up on downloads like Being Human and with school+work coming full force I probably shouldn't have every night taken by TV. :P

I feel sorry for Heroes. It seems like everybody's lost hope(I bailed mid S2)

That's basically what I used Tuesdays for, too! Catchup. It's actually good for me to have a day off since every other day has at least one show.

I watched all the way through S3... but when S4 came back I just didn't care anymore. *sad*

Vampire Diaries for me is one of those sjhows I thought oooo, having liked the books I thought yeh give it a go..
I have to say unlike say True Blood which lived up to the books, different and in a good way, Vampire Diaries just doesnt the whole show is meh... I am trying, really trying to get into it.... I'll probably watch the whole season to see if it improves, but Im dissappointed.

Being Human is awesome and season 2 is on at the moment in the Uk hun, we had episode 4 last sunday...

Im gonna try HIMYM, every ones and Ive not seen..

ALso I think I might drop Flash Forward as I too lost interest!

I watch Being Human through download. I have the 3rd ep ready to watch, but I didn't think that 4 airs until Sunday the 31st?

HIMYM is a fun comedy. You'll like it. ♥

Just so you know, Glee is actually moving to Tuesdays and will be competing with LOST. So that should get interesting. I don't watch either anymore, but I'm hoping against hope that Better off Ted remains on Tuesdays rather than joining the ranks of the "Brilliant But Cancelled." (You should give it a try, by the way: it's a little The Office meets Arrested Development.)

Mondays have basically eroded from my schedule, since I gave up How I Met Your Mother in a sea of bitterness and have been watching Big Bang Theory via stream. But I think United States of Tara is moving to Mondays, so that might change. On Wednesdays I've added Modern Family, which is indeed awesome, and I guess with Top Chef not even shooting till April and poor Eastwick cancelled, I have room for Psych! Thursdays are now all about my beloved Community. ♥

It looks like a lot of my favorite stuff isn't going to be back this spring, or for a while -- Mad Men (which I am newly obsessed with) isn't till summer, Top Chef probably in the fall, I have no idea when Top Model is back, and Curb Your Enthusiasm may even go off the air!

Oh, I only just remembered hearing that! Well, okay I guess I will have something on Tuesday after all. :)

I just watched the pilot of Mad Men (Netflixing it, baby) so I hope to catch up slowly. :) And I have been meaning to watch Better Off Ted. With my luck I'll get into it just as it gets officially canceled. :P~~

My, that's a lot of TV!

I planned on watching somewhere around 10 series regularly, and as it stands, the only one I manage to keep up with each week consistently is HIMYM. Ironic, since I think the show has taken a drastic and devastating downturn in quality, pre- and even more so, post-BrOTP breakup. I think the reason I hang on so fiercely is that the series is such an all-time favorite that I keep praying it'll miraculously get better one week.

Smallville, at least as far as I've watched and heard, has been excellent this season! ♥ If they can keep up the quality of Part 1 in Part 2 this year (unlike last season), then this could end up being one of the best seasons ever. :) The epic, mythos Superman stuff is making me VERY happy. ♥

I still watch HIMYM, but I definitely wait to see it. It's so sad to see it floundering right now. Hopefully it will come back! :)

Yes, Smallville has been great. Can't wait for tonight!!
