I made my calendar last night to make sure that I caught hold of all the TV shows that I’m going to try watching this season. There are fourteen shows that I will be watching this fall season.
I discovered something interesting. Of the fifteen shows that I will be watching this fall season, half (seven) come on Monday nights*, almost a third (four) come on Thursday nights**, and the remainder (three) come on the other five days of the week***.
Thursday nights are historically a good night for television, but Monday? Is that a historically popular night for television? I have difficulty thinking of historically popular shows that come on that night. Maybe it’s a product of Monday Night Football going over to ESPN?
* - TheBig Bang Theory, Boston Legal****, Chuck, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, and Worst Week
** - Eleventh Hour, Life on Mars, My Name Is Earl*****, and The Office
*** - Dirty Sexy Money, Fringe, Life
**** - I swore up and down at the end of last season that I was finished with this show, but given how the upcoming season is the last one and I’ve already invested a whopping 12 seasons into The Practice and Boston Legal, it’s tough to quit this close to the end
***** - It’s on probation. If it hasn’t improved by the end of Fall, I’ll probably move on
