Fall is here, and while back in New Hampshire that meant beautiful leaves turning and shit like that, here it means there's lots of American TV to carry me through my boredom. Last year, I was too busy to really catch anything new, but between my back injury and packing up to move (I have a gooorgeous new apartment, y'all), I've had nothing to do, so it's basically been NOTHING BUT PREMIERES for me.

Let's see how everything stacks up!

New Shows )

Returning Shows )

Unpremieres: Shows that just ended or are mid-run )

Meanwhile, I quit The Big Bang Theory and Grey's Anatomy without bothering to watch the premieres. I just... can't seem to drum up the interest in either of them. OTOH, totally going to be catching Once Upon a Time when that comes out. My beloved Cougar Town is pushed to midseason, and I guess so is 30 Rock? :( Mad Men is pushed to FOREVER (seriously, MARCH, WTF). Game Of Thrones and Sirens are both back in April, and Misfits... when the hell is Misfits back, anyway?

So... anyway, I like TV. Let's talk about TV.

WHAT

EXCUSE ME?

HOW IS THIS OUR FUCKING OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST?

Holy shit I want to put my fist through his empty little head.

I mean, it's not like it's the first time he's ever said something horrible, but I can't think of anything more blatantly, upfront horrible. He's usually so much more snide and passive-aggressive and "I would represent the US honorably" or "Some skaters say they did a triple axel in two weeks" or whatever creepy little things come out of his mouth when he thinks no one knows he's obsessively badmouthing Johnny Weir. I mean, there was that stupid Stars on Ice thing, but I'm going to go ahead and say this is worse. What the fuck.

And what really tears me up is, is he going to get any ramifications for that bullshit? Is anyone on Team USA going to say two words about this? Are we going to hear from any sponsors about how they aren't interested in having a homophobic gender-bashing fuckhead shitbird like Evan Lysacek representing them? LET'S HEAR IT, FLEXJET. COME ON.

Edit: I was so mad I didn't realize the _skating post was locked. WHOOPS. For non-members:




Seriously, what.

So I didn't think I could be any more pissed off at How I Met Your Mother than I was after "The Rough Patch," but this episode really was the last nail in the coffin of this season for me. I realize I am probably deeply biased on the whole subject of "hey let's forgive our horrible family members for no reason other than they're ~*~family~*~," but seriously, I am so far from okay with the way that whole thing played out.

I know the show's going on hiatus for a few weeks (anyone know how long?) and I'm not sure what I'm going to do when it comes back. A la Lily, it might actually be Dead To Me as of now.
