Now we know what to look for in two weeks!

In doing today's TOD, I used a website that lists the prime time schedules of the major networks throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s (here is the link.)

I tried to keep my chosen shows in their actual scheduled time.  The night I had the most trouble with was Wednesday.  Aside from St. Elsewhere, I couldn't find shows that I truly liked that fit into any kind of real schedule, particularly the 9:00 to 10:00 slot.  I'll have to play around with it more, I think.

Schedule is subject to change.

Hmm... As for the Topic of the Day...

As long as the following shows are somewhere in the line-up, I'd be happy:

Northern Exposure
thirtysomething
A Year In the Life
Evening at Pops alternating with In Performance at the White House (yes, I know that's technically on PBS)
M*A*S*H*
The Twilight Zone
St. Elsewhere
The Carol Burnett Show

...And that's about all I can think of right now...  Stay tuned...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LARRY!!

Did anyone else find it self-revealingly hilarious how Rather kept thanking people over and over (and over and over and over) whilst they applauded, as Brokaw just smiled and grimaced?  :)

I missed the Emmys last night,  I was at a parent meeting for the new Youth Group that the vixter joined and didn't get home until after nine.
Vixdad was halfway through a PBS Mystery show Inspector Maguere or something like that, set in England during WWII.  So we watched the rest of that and then I was off to bed

MATTH We love Arrested Development

Our regular viewing is AD, The West Wing, Malcolm in the Middle,  House and The Daily Show.

Other than that we watch a lot of PBS and the History Channel and The Discovery Channel

We don't have HBO we haven't seen any of Rome I trust it will eventually show up on DVD and we'll see it then.

I will give it another chance tonight and will hang around for KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL. I will be recording HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. I'm hoping these two comedies will recapture some of the zing that has been missing from comedies

I do think drama has never been better than what's offered on TV right now, but comedies are really lacking. There are very, very few that really measure up to the greats of yesteryear.

I took my walk this morning before 8 o'clock. The temperature was heating up as I walked, and only that early was in endurable. PLEASE, cooler weather come soon!

I was very happy that LOST won.  But disappointed that DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES lost. I was also surprised that Felicity (from DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) won instead of Teri Hatcher (who i wanted to win).

I cannot believe that Donald Trump won for that song.  In fact I cannot even believe that he performed period.

I loved Ellen's bit with Eva Longoria in the balcony.

And I loved the Blue Man Group skit and that AMAZING RACE won (although why didn't they announce in each show one by one?).

RE the current high quality of TV drama - I went to the Producing for Commercial Theater seminar this past April, and one of the producers on the panel was asked why serious drama is such a hard sell on Broadway today, while musicals are selling well.  His belief was that there is no equivalent for the experience of seeing a musical, and that's why musicals are for the most part thriving.  But as far as drama is concerned, I'm paraphrasing what he said, but the producer on the panel hypothesized that the bridge-and-tunnel people especially feel they can sit at home and watch great drama on TV, so why schlep into the city, pay a babysitter, etc., for a straight play unless something about it (awards, stars) makes it a must-see event.

I'm up, I'm up.  

Let's have more TV scheds, please, they're quite enjoyable.

I think when we had the power outage last week that it screwed up all the timers except the lights - the sprinklers now go on three hours later than they should, and the pool pump goes on, well, I don't know WHEN it goes on, but it's at least a couple of hours later than I set it.  I'll have to check it out.

I can also tell you thjat the bridge and tunnel people can justify to themselves the expense of $100 a ticket for a cast of  "thousands" dancing and  singing  spectacular sets and and a full orchestra, but somehow will feel cheated to spend that same $100 to watch 6 actors talking
