Fall 2012 TV Line-up

My DVR is going to break. It's just going to fry starting next week. Little by little, new Fall TV shows have been premiering and I'm already having a tough time keeping up. That is mainly thanks to all 6 hours a week of The Voice that occupy my time [thank goodness you can fast forward through commercials, right?]

So, now it's time to tell you all what I am/will be watching. Plus, it'll be fun to know who else is following along with me! Without further ado, I'm linking up with Lindsey and showing you my Friday Favorites [Fall TV Style]:


The Challenge. I am almost positive I have watched every single season of The Challenge. I must admit, I'm a little bit sad they are weeding out the "originals." They were the real drama queens. I could never, ever be on a season of this show and here is why: You take the drama of The Real World, multiply it by 100 AND add in physical competitions, alliances, strategies, and eliminations. No, thanks! But I do love this show and don't think any season has ever really disappointed.


I am a huge fan of The Voice and I am always, always #TeamAdam. Just had to get that out there. Although, it would be hard to say "no" to Christina after looking up to her since she was on MMC. Anyway, I love this show for its coaches, its talent, and its concept. I love the blind auditions and what they do with all the battle rounds. Not to mention, how cool would it be to sing WITH Adam, Cee Lo, Christina, or Blake toward the end? Answer: Very.


Long Island Medium. If you know me, you know I'm a believer. I 100% believe in mediums [although I don't necessarily believe everyone who claims to be given that gift.] Theresa Caputo's gift astonishes me. You can see it in the eyes of the people she "reads" whether it's at a private reading, group reading, or in the middle of the grocery store.

My mom LOVED this show. She got my entire family watching it before she passed away, which is such a blessing because it helps us know she is still out there, with us, and loving us. One day, I hope to talk to her again with the help of a medium :) Call me crazy ;)


Breaking Amish. This show came on after The Long Island Medium on Sunday and I randomly started watching it. It's about four young adults [three grew up Amish and one grew up Mennonite] who leave their families to live a modern life in none other than New York City. It's pretty crazy to watch them get acquainted and hear their stories about their beliefs and how they were raised.

I recently read that the show is not 100% true and that TLC confirmed that, saying more will be revealed later in the season. Apparently, a couple of the cast members lived a modern life for years prior to this... Has anyone else heard more on this?


I fell in love with Hart of Dixie last year when it premiered. It's funny, witty, silly, and has some good romantic twists. However, I must admit - I just wasn't impressed with the Season Two premiere this week. Anyone else? I was easily distracted during it and it just didn't pull me in. I will give it a few more episodes but if things don't pick up, it might be the one to go byebye this Fall :(


90210. Guys, listen and please, whatever you do... don't judge me. I think this is my favorite show. I've been a loyal fan of it [well, I've been a fan since the original BH: 90210] since the series started nearly 4 years ago. I've become attached to the characters, the plot has kept me hooked, and I've found some of my favorite songs from the soundtrack. Bam! MONDAY!!


Do I even need to say it? THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Season 4 premieres on Thursday and I could not be any more excited! I watched all 3 seasons in about a month thanks to Netflix and my lunch break. Many of you know I was originally #TeamStefan, and while there is still something mysteriously hot/romantic about him, I have to side with #TeamDamon. I am definitely excited to see what happens this season now that I can finally follow along live!

Well, there you have it! My fall TV line-up! I might be forgetting something. I am going to do my best to watch many of these shows live but life gets in the way sometimes. SO grateful for my DVR! 

Now it's your turn! What are you watching this Fall? Are you watching along with any of the shows above? :)

Go link up with Lindsey and share any of your favorites!

And don't forget - today is your last Friday to enter the RoseRags leopard poncho giveaway! One of my faaavorite clothing items in my closet! :)

I LOVE Vampire Diaries, and I'm also #TeamDamon mostly because Ian is one of the sexiest men alive.

Speaking of sexy men, Adam Levine is right on up there at the top of the list. So glad you watch The Voice too! I love the blinds because they're actually judged on their voices. I actually have been doing my Music Mondays as a recap every week about my favorite performances!

I started watching The Real World during the Real World Austin season since I finally got MTV when I went to University. So this season is awesome for me because it's a whole bunch of newbies!! (Except is it just me or are the rookies not causing much drama, I guess there is no history there). And I think Damon is on the outs and old Stefan is back. Can't wait for the premiere!

Hilary said...

Aw, so cool about LI Medium + your mom! About Breaking Amish... YES! I was emailing with Lia {Sunkissed & Southern} about this too - I've heard some JUICY stuff. Google it!

Michelle said...

ahhh breaking amish! I can't help it, I'm a sucker for those terrible reality shows too! I read about breaking amish being a bunch of lies the other day, I actually wrote about it today over on my blog.

I think we both know that reality shows are never reality but they're still fun to watch!!

I think my DVR is going to break too. When my boyfriend looked at the scheduled shows on the DVR he was like "how do you have 4 shows recording, JUST tonight?" Oops....You know it's bad when you have to cancel one and find when it's on again because the DVR can't record 3 shows at the same time. #firstworldproblems

Holy Verveine Batman... I cannot wait for TVD. Just finished season 3 on Netflix and I'm pumped for the next season!! The hubs and I just finished watching seasons 1-2 of Game of Thrones and we're obsessed but the next season doesn't come out until March 3.

I am SO happy to find another 90210 fan!! I have had October 8th listed as an event on my iphone calendar for months!! Can't wait for the premiere - the finale last year was soo great!

Katie said...

Oh man, our DVR is working overtime too. LOVE Long Island Medium and Vampire Diaries!
A blog friend and I have been talking about Breaking Amish since right before it started. Neither of us could continue watching it after the first and second episode - it was so terrible and not realistic at all. Then we found several articles about it being fake (which, if you know much at all about the Amish, was SO obvious). I just couldn't take it anymore.

Lindsey said...

YES! I've been following all the amish drama. IT IS SO FAKE (but I'm still watching).

Abe and Rebecca are married IRL and have a little girl.

Jeremiah is divorced with 3 kids and their are accusations of him being an abusive husband. He's been "English" for like 14 years.

Sabrina has also been married and had an "English" wedding.

go to starcasm.net to read everything.

Abe was also arrested for drinking when he was like 18 as was his brother.

You're welcome.

Lindsey said...

p.s. thanks for linking up. Glad to have you back! Obvs.

OMG I was super confused when I heard all the controversy around Breaking Amish, too. I am OBSESSED with the show- I've always had this fascination with the Amish- and I don't really care if some of it is lies, it will not stop me from watching! haha. I'm interested to see how TLC answers some of the accusations, like Jeremiah being divorced with 3 kids, and Rebekah and Abe already having a baby wtf?!

Jenna@The Life of the Wife said...

Don't judge me. I've been a LOYAL fan of 90210 foreeeever - since the first season! I'm totally ashamed to admit it for some reason :)

Kris Tin said...

I love the Challenge also. Although I have to admit I don't know who half the people are anymore :(

Raquel said...

Def excited for Hart of Dixie and Vampire Diaries! I'm also excited for gossip girl

tara said...

Just catching up on some blog reading and I had to comment. I was watching LI Medium last night and was thinking the same thing. I just lost my mom too and I would love to talk with her with the help of a medium. I was so close to tear because I'm from LI, so a lot of the places she goes, and her accent remind me of my mom so much!

Shayna said...

LOVING Battle of the Seasons so far! The challenges never disappoint! & Long Island Medium is one of my favorite shows. You're not crazy at all for wanting to find one, I do too! Last night's episode made my cry so much! & I want the juice on Breaking Amish!? From what I gather from the show, one of the guys has lived outside of the Amish before.
