While in college I never really watched any traditional programming. I was either too busy working, writing papers, studying, or going out to watch programs on TV regularly. Since out of college, I have become a glutton with TV. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t spend all my time watching and recording shows, but compared to the regular programming I watched in college and what I watch now, the number has gone up dramatically. It could be because I have more time, better programming, or other things. I typically am a movie guy, but there is some damn good TV out there. I’ve been watching Lost and House for a few seasons now. This year, I got into Studio 60, Heroes, Scrubs, and The Office. There is a new show on NBC tonight that I’m looking forward to seeing. It’s called Thank God You’re Here. I love improv comedy, and that’s what this is. The premise is a bunch of famous TV actors and comedians suited up in a costume and thrown out onto a set without knowing anything that’s going on and have to improv a funny scene based on the setting and what the other characters say. I think this could be very funny, along the same lines, albeit with less structure, as Who’s Line is it Anyway?. So, another show to add to my list of shows I currently watch. I really should quit watching so much TV, but the shows I mentioned are so good that I can’t help but watch them.
EDIT: I forgot to mention one of my favorite shows, Entourage. Part 2 of season 3 began last night on HBO and it looks to be a great second half of the season.
