Fall TV: What I’m Watching

I am someone who has always loved TV. Most of the podcasts I listen to are TV related, and one of my favorite ways to unwind is to curl up with Andrew and watch a show we both love. Now that we’ve been into the Fall TV season for a while, I thought I would share what I’m watching this fall with you guys!

What I'm Watching

Fall TV: What I’m Watching

New Shows:

  • This Is Us: This is probably my favorite, just like everyone else. I had super high hopes for it and every week I really love it more and more. It’s such a cute show, and while I disagree that it’s like Parenthood (it’s really not) I will say it’s a good show with a solid cast. I am glad it’s going to get a full season.
  • Designated Survivor: This is truly filling the 24 shaped hole in my heart. We LOVED 24 and Jack Bauer, and this is basically if Jack Bauer became president so we like it and it’s staying.
  • Notorious: This is so silly and stupid and honestly it’s not great but you know what? It’s super fun to watch and Piper Perabo has legit not aged a day since Coyote Ugly.
  • Pitch: Another great Fall show with an amazing cast. The story line really pulls you in, and if you haven’t seen it you should really start watching it.
  • Divorce: Sarah Jessica Parker is so fantastic. I was really hoping to love this show, and while I like it, it’s a little strange. I watched the first 2 episodes on my recent trip to NYC and it made me a LITTLE uncomfortable. There is a lot of sex and while it’s good, proceed with caution.

Returning Shows:

  • Shameless: This is probably my least favorite season so far. I will stay with it because it’s one of the only shows we watch together, but I hope it picks up. I miss Micky and Steve. Also Frank is THE WORST.
  • Survivor: Really good premise this season of Millennials vs. Gen X and really fun new twists. We are enjoying it and I hope they do a season with returning cast soon!
  • Grey’s Anatomy: I have said this to anyone who will listen: Grey’s got better when McDreamy left. I know I sound crazy but honestly the show had some seasons in there that weren’t great but the last 3-5 have been amazing. I love Alex’s storyline. I love Maggie. It’s really great lately. If you used to watch it’s time to pick it back up!

Still To Come:

  • Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life: Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that Gilmore Girls is coming back next month to Netflix for 4-90 minute episodes. Counting down the days! #TeamJess
  • Nashville: CMT picked it up and it’s back in early January and I am really hoping the rumors of Connie Britton only being in half the episodes aren’t true. I also hope Juliette found a way to be OK after her plane went missing. EEEEK!
  • Scandal: Kerry Washington had her baby a few weeks ago so I’m ready for Scandal to be back. Let’s see Millie become President!

This is what I’m watching and I would love to know what you’re watching!

    I like This is Us! Still hasn’t replaced the hole in my heart that the Braverman’s left though! haha 🙂

    I watch Dancing With the Stars, This is Us, and The Big Bang Theory. I’m patiently waiting for Game of Thrones and Stranger Things to come back. Eeek. #impatient

    I personally don’t watch any of these, expect for Shameless – I love this series. 🙂 But I’ve just started watching American Horror Story – 7th season and let’s say… this is pretty scary one. 🙂

  5. Designated Survivor has become one of my favorite shows! My husband and I watch it on DVR every Thursday (we hate commercials so we watch it the next day), but we loved 24 and so when Kiefer Sutherland was staring in it we knew we were gonna like it!

  7. I’m not loving Grey’s this season, but I really like This Is Us. I abandoned Scandal when they stopped all the OPA stuff I loved; the “will they or won’t they” with Olivia and Fitz was too much. The part of me that loves trashy TV is super excited for ANTM this winter.

    I can’t wait for Gilmore Girls, have you seen the new trailer that came you yesterday? It got me even more excited and I didn’t think that was possible! Until then, I’m catching up on the last season of the Good Wife and binge-watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix.

  12. I am loving This is Us. I also started watching The Good Place and American Housewife. This is Us is amazing and so glad as you said it gets even better each week! The Good Place and American Housewife crack me up. I need that silly laugh every week.

    I am siting on the edge of my seat waiting for Nashville and Scandal to come back. And I don’t know many females who aren’t going crazy about the Gilmore Girls Revival!

  13. I’m also liking Notorious, it’s fun. I heard things weren’t looking good for it though and they’ve already cut the number of episodes. Did you watch Covert Affairs with Piper Perabo? That was a good one too.

  15. I love This is Us. I actually like it better than Parenthood, because it doesn’t focus only on the parents. I love that there are characters I can relate to.

    Grey’s Anatomy is great! I don’t know if it is better, but it is definitely not worse without McDreamy. I love all the new storylines.

    I cannot wait for Gilmore Girls!! Eeee!

  18. I’m such a TV junkie, and I agree with you on so many of these! I’ve been loving This is Us, and Dave and I have been watching Designated Survivor together. Grey’s Anatomy has always been a favorite of mine, and I agree this season is SO good! And I actually love the storyline of Meredith and Riggs. But more than anything, I cannot wait for Gilmore Girls!! Just saw the trailor that was released yesterday and I swear I was in tears.

  19. That’s some serious TV watching! I’ve been watching and re-watching Grey’s Anatomy all the time. Even I love Meredith and Alex’s friendship, Maggie & Amelia too! I miss Cristina though! By the way, do you like Riggs?

  21. Totally with you on ‘Divorce’ – I wanted to like it (I needed to fill my SJP void) but it’s…odd? I can’t put my finger on it but it’s too goofy/silly for such a serious topic. They lost me in episode 1 when her friend SHOT her husband…I can’t.

    As for Shameless – so it’s not the BEST season, but I still love it! It’s one of my favorite shows ever.

  22. 100% agree with your Shameless comments. I say all the time “I miss Jimmy/Steve/whatever else his name was.” And Frank can just leave the show, so over him.

    I am so excited for Gilmore Girls! I started watching the series a few months before they announced the revival. Now, I’m trying to hurry up through the entire show before the new episodes release! A lot of people claim to be Team Jess, but I’m not sure I totally understand why yet. So far, I really don’t like him! Maybe that will change?

    We are loving This is Us. The twist in the first episode had us hooked! We’re still on the fence about Designated Survivor….not sure about that one. And Notorious is sitting in our PVR waiting to be marathon-watched! We’re also into The Walking Dead. And How to Get Away with Murder! And Gotham! So many good shows, so little time!

  28. I need to catch up on This Is Us. Once I saw that Jesse from Gilmore Girls and Mandy Moore is on the show I was sold! Side note, I cried so hard when MrDreamy died. I mean like ugly cry. haha I do feel like there is something missing. I have been watching from the beginning and it is just so hard to let go of the original cast. Lastly, I do a happy dance everyday because that means we are getting closer and closer to the Gilmore Girls release!

    I am a TV junkie, and have been since I was a kid. I cannot wait for Gilmore Girls!!! AAAGGGHHHHH!!! I’ve been binging on old episodes to “prime” me for the new ones! LOL! Currently, my husband and I have been on a “Blacklist” kick. I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it (I don’t prefer that genre of show), but it is soooo good! It’s one of the shows we’re watching on Netflix right now. I’ll definitely have to check out SJP’s show – I’ve heard such good things about it!

    I am also loving This is Us and Divorce. I am interested in Pitch and Designated Survivor. I have not heard of these ones. I cut the cord and therefore have to rely on Hulu and Netflix to direct me to my shows, but having a show to search for definitely helps.

  36. I don’t get to watch much TV, however, the series I am so into now is Bull (starring Michael Weatherly of NCIS). This season’s Survivor is also interesting. I’ll have to check out these other shows you’ve mentioned too.
