We have another week to suffer through of reruns on TV, before the new fall season shows begin to make their appearance. I say begin , in that due to the writers strike last fall, new shows didn't get written on time, and were slower to be developed. As a result the premier of new shows begins in the last week of the month and dribble into mid October.
I suspect it will be chaos trying to figure out what to watch, seeing as The TV Guide Magazine is so erratic, they list half the programming as "local programing" which of course tells ya nothing, the silly magazine doesn't even tell ya the channel numbers anymore. Hard to believe this Magazine at one time was the largest subscribed to magazine in the country.
So in the absence of any publish TV program schedules, one will have to do a lot of channel surfing, stopping at the first show that shows any interest-----and making note of the time and channel we find them on---so we can ultimately build our own TV guide schedule program. The last couple new seasons have been something of a disappointment, to many shows with out good writing (aka reality shows), what good shows have come out, are scarred by waaay to many commercial breaks, which precludes any real interest in the plot lines.--but at least one can glean enough about them to decide if they are worth watching without the commercials, and if so---one rents them from Netflix when available----. I hated "Monk" on the TV, but found it quite good once the mind numbing commercials were cut out.
Only a few more days to go----to find out, or begin to find out if they have come up with any keepers this season-----I got 21 selections from netflix in my Que-----just in case.
