What's on TV?

Happy New Year peoples! Hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful new year's day filled with new year resolutions that you will be breaking soon enough. 

Soo..What's on TV?

How many times have I heard this question and thought about this question since TV shows went on thanksgiving/christmas hiatus? There really is nothing to watch on TV, especially since the new fall shows were such a dissapointment. The only new show that I managed to try and watch  was Leverage (yeah the pilot episode was called The Nigerian Job) but it was a Meh for me.(my favorite blog reader, see I mentioned Leverage..hehehehe).

On the bright side, three awesome shows will be coming back for a new season, one of them being my favorite show. Here we go:

Nip/Tuck: Yay! my favorite dysfunctional tv show is bizzack on Jan 6 on FX channel.
Lost : my favorite what the hell is going on? show is bizzack on Jan 21 on ABC.
Scrubs : The best comedy that you are not watching is moving from NBC to ABC for its final season on Jan 6.

Off the top of my head also if you are still interested the Real World - Brooklyn a new season is coming up. based on previews though, it looks hella dry. Did I forget any new shows, feel free to remind me?

PS Update on my movie watching spree:

The Wrestler : very touching and heartfelt performance by Mickey Rourke, don't understand what special acting Marisa Tomei did sha. I felt it had a sucky ending. recommended for dvd.

Doubt: You get exactly what you would expect from a cast with Amy Adams, Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Superb performances by all. Reminded me a little of 'Notes on a Scandal'(go see if you haven't), everything was fine till the end. and to prevent spoilers I shall leave it at that.

Frost/Nixon: Very well done. Kudos to Frank Langella and Michael Sheen. 

Ok I am done, have a wonderful year!


I forgot..RIP to Jett Travolta, the 16 year old son of John Travolta and Kelly Prestoon, who died from a seizure while the family was on vacation in Bahamas. Such a horrible way to start the new year :(

PSS - As you may have noticed from the comments,I left out Damages, which I tried to watch but couldn't get into. It premieres on FX on Wed Jan 8. I have to say I do like the previews for the season premiere and not because it features my favorite song from Duffy's Rockferry album.:D

I started watching Leverage. I tried to like it. I couldn't. So I quit that.

I'm just excited that several of my favorite shows are coming back, even if most of them are in their final run: Battlestar Galactica (last season), Friday Night Lights (probably last season), Scrubs (probably last season). Then there's my guilty pleasure, The Closer. And the second half of The Office. My DVR will be getting a workout.
