Smarter You: Happy Dancing for Fall TV Shows!

I have an addiction to TV. I remember being 10, getting the TV Guide in the mail, with the short, little blurbs describing each episode, and circling what I wanted to watch. Some of my favorite memories are of my mom and I snuggled on the couch, watching M*A*S*H, crying at a bittersweet ending and my dad handing us tissues.

Yup, I'm addicted to TV, and you can imagine the level on my giddiness scale that the new Fall Season of TV starts this week! A few years ago, all of the new shows and new seasons of old shows would start in the same week, but now they scatter them, some kicking off this week, while others not until October...but I digress. So, you may be wondering which shows exactly I'll happy dancing for as I set my DVR? Here's my rundown:

The Voice -- Okay, my mini-crush on Adam Levine aside, what's not to love about this competition reality show, with the blind auditions and the hilarious smack talk by the judges?

Parenthood -- I have been a Lauren Graham fan for YEARS (I still miss Gilmore Girls), and she's just one of many reasons I dig this show. Superb writing, excellent cast, it's one of the few shows both my husband and I love.

Scandal -- One of the other shows that we watch as a couple, Scandal has everything: twists, turns, and a rockin' wardrobe. I truly have started asking myself "What Would Olivia Pope do?" when stuck deciding something.

Revenge -- Such a guilty pleasure, it stars my latest TV character I want to know in real life: Nolan Ross, played by the fabu Gabriel Mann.

Shark Tank -- Watching Mr. Wonderful aka Kevin O'Leary and the rest of the sharks tear apart (or fight over) wannabe entrepreneurs is the perfect way to end a hectic week.

Survivor -- I've watched every single season since it first took to the airwaves back in 2000. Pure fun, period.

But there are a few new shows on my radar that I've circled in my mental TV Guide to look for, among them: Junior Masterchef, which is a spin-off of the regular Masterchef with uber-chefs Gordon Ramsey Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot judging and mentoring mini-mes in the kitchen; Intelligence (a crime thriller starring LOST's Josh Holloway who has a computer chip implanted in his brain) and Believe (a little supernatural-y action-drama about a young girl with a special gift and the ex-con who had to protect her).  

PS Look what I found: a list of the Fall TV schedule from TVGuide. com!

What about you? What are your favorite TV shows? What can't you wait to start up again?

We don't have cable.  We use Netflix which I like because I can watch a whole season of something at one time!
