Fall TV is back

It's been a while since I have blogged, and I apologize. I still need to find some time to just put my thoughts down on all things entertainment, but in the meantime I thought it would be nice for everyone to know what TV I am watching this year.

Sunday - A Very Big Day. I split the watching on Sunday and Monday:
Curb Your Enthusiasm - So far, this season is hilarious, and I can't wait for the Seinfeld stuff.
Bored to Death - I have only watched the premiere, but so far it's quite fun
Dexter -
I just finished the season premiere, and I forgot how much I loved this show. Off to a good start already.
Californication - I am looking forward to this.
Simpsons -
Yes, I still watch it.
Family Guy - This show has lost its luster, but I'm still in.
Amazing Race -
The best reality show, and the one that I keep kicking myself that I have not even tried to get on.
Mad Men - This show really deserves the acclaim it gets. I haven't watched this week yet, but the last episode was the best. I want more Joan and Don scenes. They are great together.
Football Games - There will be a blog about the NFL soon. As most people know, I am a Fantasy Football junkie and rabid Bears fan.

How I Met Your Mother - What a horrible, horrible season premiere. But I'm sure I'll stick with it unless something really horrible happens.
The Big Bang Theory -
I have never watched this show before, but a lot of people have told me I should try it. I watched the premiere last week, and was kind of bored. If it doesn't get better, by Halloween, I'll drop it.

None. I will most likely either catch up on other shows, or watch movies

Glee - Although I have a feeling this is going to be cut soon since I think it kind of stinks.

SNL - Thursday - This is always funny, and I love David Patterson
30 Rock -
I can't wait for this to come back.
Parks and Recreation -
Last season was kind of bad, but I checked it out again this season because of Louis CK, and so far it is really funny. It's like they learned how to write comedy over the summer.
The Office -
It is still one of the funniest shows on TV. The uncomfortableness of Michael is comic perfection.
Community -
I missed the premiere due to my own incompetence, but then caught the 2nd episode. So far, I think it's pretty bad. The main problem is the lead girl is unlikable and not very cute. The entire show relies on her and without her, I hated it. I will give it a few more episodes, but I don't foresee this lasting in my radar.
Flash Forward -
What an amazing premier! That's how it's done. This will keep me occupied until Lost returns.
Fringe -
This show got really good at the end of last season. This season looks good so far, but they really need to concentrate on the overall mythology than the 'monster of the week' feel that the show does suffer from.

Smallville - I am sticking with this until the bitter end. There are usually some bad episodes and some great episodes every season. But, I do miss Lex Luthor. He was the best thing in the show. I don't miss Lana though.

Please let me know if there is anything else out there that anyone recommends. The only show I'm considering is Dollhouse, but since I gave up early last season, I am behind.

Anything else worth my viewing time?
