My adventures in TV land.

Mondays are usually CBS. Two and a Half Men is on in the evenings. There used to be another comedy right after it called Out Of Practise which seems to be cancelled, because I haven't seen it on for the last couple of weeks. It's been replaced by Courting Alex which isn't as good.

Tuesdays, it's Scrubs on NBC. A full hour of Scrubs, two new episodes back to back. Yeah, I guess you can tell that I really like Tuesdays.

Wednesdays, I don't remember. I don't think anything good is on.

Thursdays, it's My Name Is Earl and The Office. My Name Is Earl has been pretty inconsistent so far. Some episodes have been pretty funny, others have bored me to tears. The Office on the other hand is one of the funniest shows on TV.

Fridays, I don't remember. Which is odd, considering that I'm sure something good is on. Damned if I remember though. (Oh, yeah, I've been watching Beauty and The Geek. Please, don't tell anyone.) Actually Friday's there's a pretty good chance I won't be home, it being a Friday and all.

At this point I should also add that most of the time I'm not watching the stuff listed above, I'm almost certainly either watching PBS or surfing (or a watching a stray episode of That '70s Show or Yes, Dear.) And every night, I watch Conan (especially if it's a new show or a particularly funny old one.) One of the advantages of living in the Midwest is that Conan is on at 11:30 pm instead of 12:30 pm like the rest of the US.

Saturdays, I try and get out of the house. If I can't (-18°C anyone?), I usually watch PBS, unless there's something funny on the other channels. Incredibly, PBS has recently been showing the original British version of The Office on Saturday. Watching Ricky Gervais and Steve Carrell in the same week playing the same role, is a lot of fun. (Another funny show on PBS is My Hero, which chronicles the adventures of Thermoman!) If I'm home, I may also watch Saturday Night Live. Much later in the night Fox will have Farscape on, which I watch religiously.

Sundays, I may watch a little bit of Desperate Housewives especially if Gabrielle is doing something fun. Otherwise, I will wait until 9 pm and then watch Grey's Anatomy. That's a good show. It's one of the few serious shows on TV that I can stomach. All that hot doctor action sometimes makes me wish I had done medicine. And to cap off the week, Fox will show another episode of Farscape.

And if you haven't realized by now, you should know - I don't have cable!
