Thursday Night TV: What Will You Be Watching? - Featured

Tonight is officially the first night of the new TV season that I am finding myself overwhelmed.

I counted 'em up, and there's an embarrassing 5.5 hours of TV that I intend on watching tonight. This includes:

From the NBC comedy lineup - the season premieres of Parks & Recreation and The Office and the series premiere of Community.

The Season 2 Fringe premiere on Fox.

Vampire Diaries on The CW.

And from cable: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FX and Project Runway/Models of the Runway (why I haven't been able to part with this nonsense is a mystery) on Lifetime Television.

Yikes! And...soon enough I'll also have the entire ABC Thursday lineup (FlashForward, Grey's Anatomy and *gulp*...Private Practice) to get through...and 30 Rock on NBC come October (I'm boycotting SNL Weekend Update Thursday for now to save a 1/2 hour) .

That will bring my eventual Thursday Night TV Tally up to a shameful 9 hours!

There's also the stuff I'm not watching, which includes some perfectly respectable and entertaining TV: Bones (premiering tonight on FOX), Supernatural, Survivor: Samoa (premieres tonight on CBS)...and as of next week, CSI and The Mentalist. you all find yourselves in a similar predicament on Thursday evenings? What shows will you all be watching? Will anybody be watching more than my potentially seizure-inducing 9 hours worth?

Thursday might be the most horrible day of the week this fall, as far as the proportion of things I want to watch to time I have to watch them (although Monday is a close second). I'm watching Fringe, Bones, and Project Runway tonight, and I ought to be watching Supernatural and Flashforward in the near future too.

Wow, the commitment we make, RachelL. We are outstanding TV-consuming beings. I can only hope the rest of the Reelers out there feel the same dedication! I too am feeling majorly overwhelmed by the Thursday line-up. Tonight I plan to watch The Office, Parks & Rec, Survivor: Samoa, and if there's time in all that, Community again though I watched the pre-release, and Vampire Diaries. I'm exhausted already.
Daring to think of the premieres yet to come, I'm very excited for 30 Rock, and FlashForward, and I'll continue on with Grey's though not happily. So much!
