Another month, another new TV schedule

The Futon Critic has the Winter 2009 TV schedule up. If you haven't checked it out, do so. Or don't and just say you did.

While much of the Fall 2008 schedule left me cold/bored/disappointed/annoyed, I'm actually quite excited about the next few months.

And because it's the question you've all been asking, here's what I'll be watching every. Single. Night. Yeah!


8PM is slightly less jam-packed this Winter, with just the awesome Chuck and the not quite as awesome Gossip Girl. OMFG, you guys!

9PM has The Closer, which I'm never really excited to watch but is always good. Heroes needs to win my viewership back. To even get a link.

10PM seems pretty barren except for *maybe* TNT's Trust Me, which could be interesting.


8PM ... 90210. I know, I know. It's the masochist in me.

10PM is John Rodgers hour: Leverage, my friends, Leverage.


9PM brings the on the "Ls" with Lost and Life...though Life has lost a bit of its luster this season.

10PM makes me excited, because one of the most plot-twisty shows around is back: Damages. Also Life On Mars, which hasn't quite lost me yet.


8PM will find me ugly and also watching Betty.

9PM is a wealth of stuff with Grey's Anatomy, The Office, 30 Rock and maybe even a little bit of Supernatural if everything I've been hearing about it is true and we catch up with old episodes -- 3 1/2 seasons of them...

10PM offers the fun of Burn Notice and the possible awfulness (or coolness, you never know) of The Beast.

Fridays (aka Sci-days)

8PM Terminator: TSCC.

9PM Dollhouse.

10PM Battlestar.

And choirs of angels sing, because we have been blessed. Yes, it may completely fail, but at least it'll be a fun night for a few months...hopefully.... Nerd party at our place.


8PM is Merlin. Because I'm curious. And it's got Head. And Hurt.

9PM, if I'm desperate, brings Housewives.

10PM equals Kings. After hearing reviews from some friends at Comic Con, I'm super stoked about this show. Oh, man I hope it's good...and lasts.

And this doesn't even include HBO and Showtime.

Like the pairing of Lost with Life on Mars. LOM is my favorite new series this season (until Leverage...fuck yeah). I REALLY want to spec it. And this is saying something because I was a devotee of the original LOM and a little leary of the changes, but things are looking good so far.

I watched the first two Merlins and...didn't care for it. Don't get m wrong, Head rocks, but it's no his show. It's teen Camelot and that doesn't work for me.

Fridays will be fun, if likely shortlived.

LOM seems to have kind of fallen off our DVR, so it's definitely something we need to check out for a few more episodes.

I'd heard rumors that they were playing down the speculative fiction-time travel nature of it. True?

Am I more of a masochist for deciding that I not only should watch 90210 but that I also need to write a spec for the show? Or is that something else completely?

Also, catch up with Supernatural. You'll be a better person for it. True story.

The purpose of this show is to be a funny, action-oriented comedy.Tis is one of very few shows I've watched that if you give it a chance, you will come out caring quite a bit about each main character. I find Zach Levy to be very amiable and his chemistry with Yvonne and Adam only makes the show more entertaining.Catch it Download Chuck here...
