You three were hilarious this week! And I was shocked to hear how little TV Rae watches these days!

1. miss most: Missing
2. happy surprise: Fringe
3. glad gone: I Hate My Teenage Daughter
4. most anticipated: Revolution for Fall and The Following for mid-season
5. busiest timeslot: most days I have 3 things every hour, though Sundays at 9pm, I have more if I include cable shows like Dexter

Actually, toss-up between The Following and Zero Hour midseason–both pilots were great.

Wow you talked about me alot this week. Weirdos!

First, Homework:
1. miss most – nothing. I gave up tons of shows this year (not as many as Rae apparently) Well, maybe Breaking In.
2. happy surprise – honestly? Supernatural. Not that I thought the CW would cancel it but come on.
3. glad gone – any of those crap 30 minute “comedies” Rob, How to be a Gentleman, ect. How does this crap get on TV?
4. anticipated show for fall – Revolution. And that Ben & Kate. It looked cute
5. It’s always going to be the 3rd hour on Monday for me. Castle, Hawaii 50 and now Revolution.

I’ll be honest here, I’ll be checking out most of the new CW stuff. Just because I am a 13 year old girl. Mob Doctor looks delicious. 666 Park Ave at least at first because there is nothing else on and Sunday nights are a nightmare for me because Monday work sucks. I’ll probably try and check out most everything at least once or twice.

So Hart of Dixie – I don’t HATE George although, seriously, how douchey is it to dump your fiance the day of the wedding and go hit on another chick right away? I don’t get how half the town is in love with Zoe and the other half is all over Lemon. But whatever. It’s all about Wade and everyone knows it.

What was that show? Common Law? When you started talking about it I was like “what is THAT show” and then Amrie starts her recap and I am all OH! I only watched about 15 minutes and couldn’t get into it. Again, I am 13 and I have to have a crush on someone on the show to watch it. It’s all about the eye candy. If now eye candy it must be compelling in some way and this show didn’t do it for me.
