But it also means that many of us will be sitting down to set up our DVRs to capture the return of our favorite television shows or the premieres of some new, intriguing programs.
I'll admit, I'm a real TV junkie. I always have been. My teachers used to be super concerned for me because I would sometimes watch 3+ hours of TV every day after school. I knew the line-up of all my favorite shows -- I had the clicker ready to flip from one station to the next on the hour or half hour so I wouldn't miss a single second of one of my programs, even if I was doing something else at the time.
To this day, I love TV. Sure, I know I could be doing other things with my time, but after long, productive days of writing, critiquing and taking care of myself and my family, the last thing I want to do is something that takes any amount of work.
So most nights, my hubby and I snuggle on the couch watching one of our many DVR'd programs.
What's on the docket this year? Our return shows will be: Vampire Diaries, Modern Family, The Office, 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation, Glee, Raising Hope and How I Met Your Mother. (I hope I didn't leave anything out!)
But there are so many new shows to look forward to, too: PanAm, Up All Night, Suburgatory, New Girl, The Secret Circle, Heart of Dixie…there are so many, I'm sure I'm forgetting something!!
So those are what I'm looking forward to this fall in terms of television. What about you? What shows will definitely be reappearing on your DVR this fall, and what new shows will you be adding to the roster?
Have a safe and Happy Labor Day, everyone!
