Hey there Humpers (or Hump Day-ers)!
It’s halfway through the workweek (or a little more, as I’ll be doing a half-day on Friday) and I’m feeling easy and breezy. Last night, after a long meeting, I just came home and relaxed my face off. I know I’m supposed to be shredding for the wedding, but I just needed to veg for a night. It. Was. Fantastic.
Today, I’m celebrating a few things.
First (and foremost): A very blurry No Pants Wednesday!
But the other BIG celebration?
FALL TELEVISION SHOWS!!
I’ll admit it without shame: I watch more TV shows than is probably healthy. My job has a heavy focus on media knowledge and literacy, so I just like to pretend that I’m always doing research as I DVR everything on ABC Family, the CW, Fox, and TeenNick. I figured, to give you all a little more insight to the inner workings of MOI!
I LOVE the age of the HIMYM characters, and the storylines, and the length of time it takes to watch an episode (30 minutes! a shorty!) So many of the shows I watch require a very intense hour of drama, and this is a great laugh-packed show.
Also, I’m basically semi-involved with Jason Segel (don’t worry, Ryan knows.)
Tuesdays is a time for the new classic:
I must’ve missed about 6 episodes of the end of last season because, apparently, Naomi thought she was pregnant, Silver contemplated suicide, Liam hopped a boat, and Adrianna is a crazy bitch. Oh, and Navid’s mom moved to Switzerland? Who knows…. Anyway, it’s crazy to come back into things. Now they’re in college, Annie’s joining a sorority and having her inheritance taken, and that’s in the FIRST TWO EPISODES! Since I can’t enjoy Degrassi now, at least I have this drama. It’s going there.
After my whirlwind 7 year romance with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I’d follow Sarah Michelle Gellar to the ends of the earth. Or even to MSNBC, if she was headed there. This show actually reminds me of an older version of my next guilty pleasure:
Lies, deceit, sexy dudes, really great clothes, and TENNIS!! Be still my heart. This ABC Family show has snagged my heart not unlike Secret Life or Make it/Break It…. and then I realize I’m every marketer’s wet dream. I clearly will watch anything.
While Gail Simmons is no Padma, this show is a sweet tooth’s fantasy. One episode, they recreated the edible room of Willy Wonka. Oh, heck yes.
Gossip Girl. The show that stirs up more emotions than any other ones (True Blood excluded, of course). Chuck Bass makes my heart beat fast, I never remember if I’m team Blair or Team Serena, I hate Jenny and Vanessa with a raging fire that could fuel the sun and watch anxiously to see what dumbass thing Dan does next. It’s addictive. As a youth (read: like, 2 years before the show came out) I read the entirety of the book series. I was doomed to love this show until I die (or it’s canceled).
Community, The Office (though sans Michael Scott now, AH!), and 30 Rock. I can’t get enough.
Vampires in True Blood? Twilight? What’s another show to add to the mix? Ian Somerhalder has been a celebrity crush since he was in Rules of Attraction in 2002. True love never dies.
Wow. This is getting a little out of hand. Luckily, I only ALSO watch:
Modern Family, CSI (all of them), SVU, Warehouse 13, Alphas, The Secret Circle, I plan on watching The Secret Circle and Revenge, and the list could go on for an embarrassing length of time…. No wonder my DVR is so full so early in the season. Better get to watching.
What shows do you watch?
Who are your celebrity crushes?

OMG I love Jason Segel too!! I can’t wait to see him in the new Muppets movie! i can’t believe you met him!
I’m beyond excited for that movie as well!
Heck yes, know I’ll be right there watching that flick when it comes out!!
I don’t have cable and I think the only thing I’m going to miss is How I Met Your Mother! I’ll have to watch them all online… i’m obsessed!
I don’t watch a lot of scripted shows, but the ones I do watch are Mad Men (which is delayed til winter, boo!) and Big Bang Theory (I love me some Sheldon Cooper!). The latter clearly appeases my uber-nerd tendencies. I would die to meet Jason Segel! Forgetting Sarah Marshall is one of my favorites!
I’m exactly like you…I watch a lot of tv shows haha. Vampire Diaries= love for Damon…at first I didn’t like his character, now I hate stephan’s. Some of my fav shows include: Bones, Castle, Glee, Grey’s Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, and last night I watched The New Girl and I was kind of obsessed 😀
Ah, watched the New Girl online last week and it’s TRUE LOVE!
I don’t even know how I feel about the new Office without Michael Scott…makes me sad! I love Pretty Little Liars…guilty pleasure!
Ah absolutely, though no guilt required!! Can’t wait for it’s glorious return.
I LOVE Gossip Girl, Mad Men and Law and Order: SVU!
Same, same (newly), and same. Jinxes all around!
In my best Jackie (from That 70’s Show) voice…
GET OFF MY BOYFRIEND.
Jason Segel is mine. hahaha
Hmmm that’s not what he told me as we shared a private moment on Bourbon Street (strike that: no moment on Bourbon Street is private).
We watch almost all the same stuff, I could never get into Gossip Girl though. And I love that yout blog title also has the word beer in it. Priorities, right?
Peek into my brain: ‘Oh Jordan’s boyfriend looks just like Jason Segal. OH THAT IS JASON SEGAL. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? I want! No fair!”
So um, a little jealous over that pic haha.
I love Gossip Girl toooooo! Although I’m not that excited for the new season, the preview looks dumb. Who cares about LA?! The action is in NYC, upper-east-siders!
I have to 110% agree with you, I HATE migration of shows. It didn’t work for Nip/Tuck, don’t mess with a good thing , GG!

Are you still watching the Ringer? I watched episode 1 but haven’t decided to continue… How is Secret Circle? Is it better than The Lying Game? And no Parks & Rec?
One can possibly conclude you like what you choose to do.
Appreciate it, keep it up.
