Last Week's TV Hits and Misses (IMO, but of course)

This Week's Hits:

'Love Monkey' -- I like this show. I wrote about the premiere here. Once again this week, I'll be watching and I'm sure to jot at least a quick entry about it.

'American Idol' -- Hey, what can I say? It's a guilty pleasure and I think I like the bad auditions as much, if not more, than after the twelve finalists are selected. It'll always be a hit with me at this stage of the season. Let's see how much I like it after the auditions end! I blogged both nights this past week here and here.

'Everybody Hates Chris' -- Now, I didn't blog about this one. I usually don't watch the show and have only caught one other episode. The show is in a bad time slot for me as during 'Survivor' season I already watch one show and tape another at that time. However, for the moment, the 8 PM slot is free of 'Survivor' and 'The Apprentice', so there's Chris. I enjoyed the episode and it reminded me of saving my babysitting money for one of those suede fringed jackets circa 1969 or so.

'Law and Order: SVU' -- Again, not blogged about, but a good episode. This episode's "ripped from the headlines" story was based on a recent local Newark story, so I watched with a bit of insight into it. A horrible case, although a well-written episode.

'Ellen' -- I'm off from work one weekday a week and this is a never miss. Alas, for a while I was taping daily, but there were never enough hours in the day to catch up, so I stopped. I watched Wednesday's episode which included guest Matthew Fox. This show never disappoints me except when it's a rerun and I only see Wednesday eps!

'C.S.I.' and 'Without a Trace' both end up in the Hits of the Week category as does 'NUMB3RS.'

This Week's Misses:

'The Four Kings' -- I keep watching as there's nothing else I watch in the time slot and I have my big secret crush on Josh Cooke. Woefully lacking, for the most part. Sigh.

'LOST' -- Yikes! I so don't want this in my Misses category as I'm addicted to the show! Waah! But this week's episode didn't move enough forward for me. Okay, Michael ran off to look for Walt again. The only interesting forward movement for this week's episode was the appearance of the Others (who really seem to be pirates and the guy should have a parrot on his shoulder, a wooden leg and say "ARRRR" a lot). Improve next week, LOST!

What did you watch? I'd love to hear your Hits and Misses for the week!

I watched Criminal Minds, Close to Home and InJustice. I love all 3 of them.

I agree about Love Monkey. I liked it.

I never got into '24' for the most part. I taped the 4 hours of the premiere, though... just have to make the time to watch it! ;-)

Oooh Jackie....
No 24?

Anyway, I loved your Big Brother blog this summer (What a season!) And will continue to follow your blog here.

Keep up the great work!
