Thursday Thirteen

TV shows I watch or my husband watches or shows we are planning to check out in the new season:

1. Big Bang Theory. This show cracks me up. It nurses my inner geek. New season starts tonight.

2. Survivor. I have watched every season of this,and have seldom missed a show. But if someone were to ask me why I watch it, I would have to say, "I have no idea." There's nothing redeeming about it, that's for sure. It is the only reality show I watch.

3. Elementary. This is a new show, with Lucy Liu as Watson. It airs tonight. I hope I can stay awake long enough to watch it.

4. Sons of Guns (husband). He likes this show a lot. Guns and explosions. Guy things.

5. Mythbusters. I don't know if this is still on, it seems to have moved to the Science channel in reruns, anyway, but we have enjoyed it for years.

6. Swamp People (husband). Gaters and guns. 'nuff said.

7. Deadliest Catch. We both watch this show. Men go crab fishing, form relationships.

8. How Its Made. This is an informative show on Science, I think it is. You learn how boats are made, wicker is created, light bulbs are manufactured - all sorts of things.

9. The Newsroom. We loved this show when it aired over the summer, and look forward to its return.

10. Game of Thrones. Another HBO series we both liked. However, it's not a show I will watch a second time: too gory.

11. Jeopardy. This is an old staple in the evening. Quiz show that pits brain against brain.

12. Bill Maher. We usually catch this one in reruns since we tend to both fall asleep by 10 p.m. these days. Hazard of growing old, I guess. Political commentary from the middle of the road.

13. Insert something here, as I can't think of another. :-)

I don't watch much TV, really, and when these are on, I am usually reading. I have the crud and couldn't think much deeper than this for my TT.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 261st time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Oh, yeah! Big Bang Theory fans, unite! :)

    I'm hoping for good word on Elementary - but I won't be able to see it first run, unfortunately. :(

    I'm glad there's someone else who enjoys Mythbusters - I can't find anyone to watch it with me!

    The Newsroom was my favorite new show this summer. I'm trying to find ways to watch the new episodes from here - I don't want to miss any!

    I enjoy Bill Maher, too. Love his take on (most) things!

    Happy TT to you!

  2. Only get NBC, PBS and ION, so I'm happy if there is even one show I like this season and that it Go On with Chandler from Friends.

  3. Interesting TV show list except for Elementary ... I like the book too much and imagining Watson becomes a woman is just ridiculous.

    Enjoy your shows :)

  4. Everything I know about TV I learned from people's blogs. From what I've seen, Big Bang Theory is a gas.

  5. Game of Thrones is an excellent TV series.

    Concert Tickets

  6. Every now and then I'll see Myth Busters on OnDemand or cable.
    It's a good show.

    Have a great t-13!

  7. I love how you mentioned you wish you could stay awake. I know the feeling! I feel slumber could turn me into a pop culture illiterate.

  8. I love Big Bang Theory, but am conflicted this season as I am intrigued by the new series opposite, Last Resort. I taped Vegas to test run Tuesday night, and am thinking of checking out Elementary. Shows I usually watch: The Mentalist, Castle, NCIS, NCIS:LA, Criminal Minds, CSI, and Grimm. I do not get to see Jeopardy! often anymore as it is on at 4:30pm here.

  9. Bill Maher doesn't seem middle-of-the-road to me. Can't stand the guy. Our favorite shows are Good Wife and Modern Family.

  10. After reading this list, Anita, I now see how little I know about current TV shows, except of course old standbys like Jeopardy.We don't subscribe to any cable or satellite services and rely on an antenna, so reception can be sketchy at times. PBS has some shows I enjoy like Mystery and Antiques Roadshow and Sat Am cooking programs which I watch while at the local Y...gotta love those little TVs on the exercise machines.

  11. 261 times, that's amazing! I run the T13 and I appreciate you playing along :-)


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
