Here At Last!

The fall tv season is starting, slowly but surely! And I'm going to start blogging more regularly again, so keep tuning in!

Season Premiere Watch
Nothing too exciting, but in case you care...
Tuesday: Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
Thursday: Survivor: Cook Island (CBS)

Last night Fox started the season for The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad and The War at Home. (Why won't they just kill that last one? See Buzz section for more on that...)

M's Weekly Spotlights:
Monday: Vanished (Fox)
Tuesday: Dead Like Me Re-runs (SciFi), Eureka (SciFi)
Wednesday: Project Runway (Bravo)
Thursday: Dancing with the Stars (ABC)
Sunday: The Simpsons, Family Guy (Fox)

Looking for a more active way to watch TV (by, you know, not really having to move too much)? Try these two websites:

This website allows you to play characters and "quirks" against up to 5 of your friends, as a throwback to fantasy sports leagues. Points awarded for screen time, name use, drinking, cursing... etc. After the "draft", you only have to align your players once a week and watch the points roll in... not too much energy!

The deathwatch is a contest to see which shows are getting axed. Each week that you guess correctly enters you into a drawing for an iPod. The list only include new shows for the season, so I don't get to vote for The War at Home every week. Only one click a week for a chance to win a prize AND vote against bad TV? I'm in!

Closing Thoughts
To sum it up, I'll leave you with this profound quote:
"Before TV, there were two world wars, after TV, there were none." - An ABC billboard I saw about 6 years ago driving to Philadelphia
