Summer TV

OK, so I thought I would talk a bit about my other obsession. TV - hence amy v loves tv! I have a husband who is a morning person and goes to bed fairly early and I am a night owl and stay up late. They say opposites attract right? Anyway, after he goes to bed I either scrapbook or watch tv or do both at the same time! I find Summer tv is hit or miss. Most often summer tv is reality based. I don't tend to like reality tv for the most part, but in the summer I have to extend my tolerence. Here are a few suggestions that I have been watching and enjoying. Let me know if you are watching any of them too!

My husband and I enjoy watching Food reality shows such as, Food Network Challenge, Chopped (Food Network), Top Chef Masters (bravo). My husband used to cook at an inn during college so he likes to tell me what he would change and how easy the challenges are. Hey, as long as he keeps cooking me delicious food, I am not going to complain!

We love competing against each other in Jeopardy each night!

Other reality shows we have been watching - Here come the Newlyweds, Wipeout, I survived a Japanese gameshow. These are crazy funny shows. You would think I would get tired of seeing someone take a digger off a big ball into water, or get covered in flour but nope, it delivers laughs ever time!

My guilty pleasures include: The fashion show (it's keeping me happy until Project Runway in August!)and Kathy Griffin: My life on the D-list (That girl cracks me up!), as does The Daily Show and Colbert Report.

I am enjoying Royal Pains,the Closer and Hawthorne but the well is not deep when it comes to non-reality shows in the summer. These are good shows, but I don't know why they can't spread the love between seasons! They have 3 great shows on the same time the same day during the fall but nothing on during the summer! Grrr, it makes me mad!

OK, you are probably thinking wow all she does is watch tv. Not true. I do watch alot but let me explain why. I don't have kids yet, my job stays at work, I work out after work, and my husband goes to bed at 9:30 each night. I am up till at least 11pm sometimes 12am. That leaves 2-3 hours a night of alone time when I am wide awake with not much to do. I don't like video games and I only read books on the weekends and usually not at night. I usually scrap as I watch or surf the internet while tv is on in the background.

I have a TIVO (the best invention EVER!) so I don't miss anything and can watch shows faster without comercials!

I know there are people who don't own a tv or just don't watch but what can I say, It's one of theose things that makes me, me. I am proud to be a couch potatoe! It will all change someday when I have kids...I hear they take up alot of time but for now TV keeps me happy and entertained!

Let me know what you are watching this Summer! What are your favorite shows?


  1. My FAV summer show is "Army Wives", Love IT!!!

    yes, you are correct TEVO or DVR is the best invention ever, only I have NO IDEA what movies are coming out at the

  2. I haven't watched that b/c I thought it would make me cry but maybe I'll rent it through Netflix for summer watching!

  3. oh yeah, cry, laugh, cover your eyes, yell and in the end be extremly happy that I took the time to watch!
    It's a "real life" drama about life in the military that is done really well, I couldn't tell you how "close to life" it is written, but I can tell you that it is FULL of entertainment.
    This summer's season just started 2 weeks ago -- it's great.
