Great Television Series are Back & Some Great New Pilots Too.

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

First, I hope everyone had a great summer, and hope that you are settling into fall. Recently a majority of the cable television network has been premiering their pilots and I must say many new shows seem to have great potential. Go On, The New Normal and Animal Practice are 3 of the new pilots that i have seen and loved all three!!! The biggest problem is that many of the returning shows are showcased more than once a week. Die hard fans of those shows will miss out on some great television pilot seasons. For instance The Voice(NBC) is now on Monday's, Tuesday's and Wednesday's. Heart of Dixie(CW) has been changed from Monday nights to Tuesday night programming. New Girl(FOX) has returned to Tuesday night. Dancing With The Stars, All Stars(ABC) is on Monday and Tuesday at 8pm. These are just a couple of examples of how we as TV viewers will have to choose what we really want to watch. This season I know that favorites such as Game of thrones, Modern family, Sons of Anarchy, Madmen, Boardwalk Empire, will be some of the shows battling it out with reality TV such as American Idol, X-Factor, Project Runway, Survival, The Amazing Race, The Voice, America's Got Talent etc….

However, if you have a PVR then you are lucky and this does not mean anything to you. As for myself, I do NOT own a PVR so, I watch only a select few shows as it seems once I get into a new show, it gets cancelled. This has happened with both The Secret Circle, and The Playboy Club last year alone not to mention previous years!! So this year I am watching DVD's of series I thought I might like. So, I started with The Vampire Diaries(CW) and I am addicted! In a matter of a month I have watched seasons 1 and 2 in their entirety and half of season 3. I have read 8 of the books and continue to read them. If it were not for The Secret Circle and reading the books I would have not known about The Vampire Diaries. In Canada CW is not on cable TV however, CTV Two does broadcast The Vampire Diaries. I am excited that I will be able to watch Season 4 on my television set!! I am hoping that if you have not yet seen the Vampire Diaries Season 4 trailer to watch it now, here.Enjoy!
