First the winner of last week's contest (chosen with is Laura Rachel Fox. Laura, e-mail me your address to jill(at) and I'll send out your book. Also, let me know if/how you want it signed! For this week's contest, let me know what TV show (new or returning) you're most looking forward to, and I'll enter you to win a free month of Netflix.

So, on the topic of TV -- here's something to feel positive about this week: There are real shows on again! I know a lot of writers aren't too obsessed with TV, but I don't fit into that mold. I like watching a show at night before I go to bed to unwind. It's often hard for me to read and concentrate on a book when I'm in the midst of writing one myself, so TV shows are like my nightly brain candy! The long summer without any new episodes of my favorites is always hard for me to get through.

This summer I tempered that a bit with a new Netflix membership. My husband and I started watching Bones from the beginning, and watched all five seasons in a row. The show became my new obsession, and my impatient mind was thrilled to be able to watch episode after episode night after night (way better than having to wait a whole week to see what happens!) Needless, to say, I can't wait to see what happens on the first episode of Season 6 on Thursday.

I'm also a big Grey's Anatomy fan, and despite a bit of a rocky season last year, I thought the final episode was really good, so I can't wait to see what happens, and I can't wait to see Glee on Tuesday night!

I've been reading good things about The Event and Lone Star, so I have the first episodes set up to tape this week.

I could go on. . . Honestly, I hope my dvr doesn't suddenly explode, because after months of non-use, it's going to be working overtime now.

What shows are you looking forward to?


  1. Have the following *ti-voed*.....We shall see.

    These all start this week:
    Fox'x New Season of House...8.p.m., Mon.
    Fox's The Event... 9:00p.m., Mon.
    NBC's Undercover..8:00p.m., Wed.
    CBS's Defenders... 10:00p.m., Wed.

    And starting the 23 of Sept....CBS's $#*!, with William Shatner...( Must definitely give this one a peek )

  2. The biggest one I am looking forward to is Law & Order: SVU. It is one of my favorite shows. Sadly though, with the hubby gone to work while it's on, we have to record it on the DVR and then watch it when we are both home. So we are always really far behind in episodes lol.

  3. I've greatly missed House (4 minutes and counting!) and The Middle during the summer lull. Plus, I always love new seasons of The Amazing Race and Survivor. Of the new shows this year, the one that most intrigues me is The Event; I hope it lives up to the hype created by the clever ad campaign.

  4. I'm also looking forward to House. Going to watch it in a few mins. Have never actually seen Law & Order SVU, but that might be a good one for me to catch up on via Netflix next summer!

  5. Glee, Modern Family, The Office, Desperate Housewives and 90210 (already came back last week). That's all. :) I still miss Ugly Betty!!!

  6. Yay!! Thanks for holding the contest Jillian.

    I'm most looking forward to Glee and Gossip Girl.
