What are you Looking At?

I have been in all my splendor with the new tv that has been on! Check out all these goodies...

American Idol - you know I'm front and center each night it's on. It's fun to watch with the kids although I am totally ready to get the show on the road. Enough with the auditions! I can handle Hollywood week which is coming soon thank goodness! The new judge isn't really leaving me a good nor bad impression, she's just "there". Randy is still my favorite. His inappropriate laughing is infectious! My favorite bad audition by far is bearded guy singing a droll "Walking on Sunshine" which I've been doing a lot around the house. Always a crowd pleaser!

Real World Brooklyn - How is it that I am approaching 40 and still watch this show? It's one of life's great mysteries if you ask me. I have been with this show since it's first season and I still call it the pioneer in the reality shows. The cast is pretty good this season, but even if they weren't I have a feeling I'd still watch it.

Real Housewives of OC - Can't look away from this show and NYC is back in Feb. Jeana's sons are seriously the RUDEST boys, they should be ashamed of themselves they way treat her. Still not caring for Tamra either!

Top Chef - Can't get enough! I think I am routing for Jamie or Stefan. Haven't seen last night's episode yet. I kind of like crazy Carla too :)

Lost - love, love, love Lost! It doesn't frustrate me like it does some b/c I look at like a great movie I don't want to end. If you have never seen this show, I command you to sign up for Netflix and get the previous seasons. It's awesome and you're really missing out on good stuff!

The Office and 30 Rock - 2 words... so funny

Big Love - only show on HBO I am watching regularly. I think Chloe Sevigny is SO good on this show.

Rescue Me - on FX is another favorite - I recommend this on Netflix too! New season starts in March and I can't wait!! Dennis Leary is really good!

60 Minutes - ok not really (although I do like the show) but needed to bump up this list intellectually :)

As you can see I am pretty booked in the tv world but would love to hear your "not to be missed" line up! I'll leave with this...... enjoy (and ps that is not me laughing in the background - I pulled it off youtube)!

xo, Brie

I am right there with you! Idol's auditions are getting old I am ready for Hollywood. I am dying to see! Real OC, my recap will post tomorrow blue my mind with how Jeanna's boys treated her. Sad. Top chef was a superbowl theme and kinda sucked but I am still watching! You're not watching the Bachelor?

I'm loving Idol too. I'm ready for Hollywood Week next week. The new judge isn't doing it for me, but that Physics Guy was too much!

AI is grating my last nerve this season. Hollywood week better be over the top this year to make up for the auditions.

I too love Real World so I'm glad to know I'm not the only one still watching this show. I have to admit I haven't caught all of the episodes of this season but, I like the cast from what I have seen. Catching up on the missed episodes is on my to do list this weekend.

Real Housewives is a train wreck I just can't turn away from. I'm hooked. I couldn't finish watching last weeks episode because Jeana's sons were so out of control.

I've also been watching 23227 and Counting. Or maybe it's 17 and Counting. I can't keep up with those Duggars and all of their spawns. I wasn't really interested until they showed the wedding episode and I found it so weird that I now I'm hooked on that show too. I watch to remind myself that I'm a dirty dirty whore for kissing boys.

And finally, I hang my head in shame for this one, Rock of Love Bus. Or as I call it Bus of Chlamydia. There is nothing redeeming about this show but what can I say I love a good freak show meets train wreck.

I too am very busy right now with my TV schedule!

I scrapped American Idol, but I'm with you on the rest of the list. I love Andy Rooney (and only realized this waiting for the amazing race to begin).
Real Housewives...I'm watching too...and I get made fun of for it.

I wish we lived closer to one another - we'd have t.v. watching dates all the time! I'm sooooo hooked on Lost - on Wednesday night I was actually dreaming about John Locke and Richard Alpert!

Now I've never been a big fan of American Idol, but I did catch that guy with the beard singing Walking on Sunshine and I was laughing so hard I could barely contain myself. Priceless!

Really Brie... Stefan?? He's such an ass! Though he was still not out done by the consummate asshat (Spike) this week. I'm pulling for Jamie but hope they keep Fabio around just because he is hysterical, what with his "money ass on clam shell" and whatnot.

Man, there are a lot of asses in my post...

Brie said...

I do agree CC about Stefan - he is assish (like my made up word?) but he does seem to know what he's doing, he kind of looks like a friend of mine, and I do wish I had a teeny weeny bit of his I don't give an eff attitude. I probably wouldn't end up liking him personally but he's a homerun for this kind of show. You'd be bored without him ;)

I'm desperately trying not to get hooked on the reality shows. (we have satellite for the next 3 months-don't ask). But I know tomorrow there will be a Housewives marathon and I don't think I'll be able to stay away!!
Why did you have to tell me about Real World Brooklyn? I'll be looking for that now too.
And how 'bout that matchmaker chick on Bravo, loved that last season!

Lost is the best!
