NBC lineup is in repeats tonight.

8/7c Arrow Returns on the CW

Tonight:

10/9c Nashville on ABC

Tonight:


It’s that day of the year to spend time with friends and family some who may not watch much tv.  If you can get away from Football and holiday themed TV here’s some quality shows to force feed them.

USA’s Suits- All 22 episodes are available to watch on demand until the 2nd half of season 2 begins in January. Best of all its already been renewed for season 3.

ABC’s Last Resort– Though canceled the creator has promised some closure in the final episodes. The show is a good example of quality tv and your grandpa or uncle who was in military might be able to relate to the show. All 7 hours are available on Hulu.

ABC’s Scandal– The suspenseful, drama filled show will keep you on the edge of your seat every episode. The show has had mediocre ratings so get them hooked on the short 7 episode first season on Netflix.

ABC’s Nashville– The rookie show following the lives of two fictional country singers is full of drama and music. You dan’t have to like county to watch but if you do that’s a plus. Just like Scandal the show has had mediocre ratings so get them hooked on the first 6 episodes on Hulu

What will you be watching today?


Based off a segment that “The Morning After” on hulu does here is my list of shows that you should catch, commit or drop.

Not a complete list. Share your favorites in the comments .

Aaron’s @zaffuto234 List

NBC’s Revolution: Commit

The show continues to grow its main characters and the power mystery is bringing me back every.

Fox’s Ben and Kate: Catch

The show cant seem to find its grove continually but when it does you have a great cast that makes you laugh.

Fox’s New Girl: Commit

Its funny and continues to be.

Fox’s Raising Hope: Commit

I cant get enough of the quirky comedy.

Fox’s The Mindy Project: Drop

Just don’t find any of the character very likable.

ABC’s Don’t Trust The B**** In Apartment 23: Catch

The show had James trying to put together a Dawson’s Creek reunion so the show is worth watching at times.

NBC’s Go On: Commit

Though not Matthew Perry’s best work he alone makes the show worth watching weekly.

NBC’s The New Normal: Catch

When its funny its very funny.

NBC’s Chicago Fire: Commit

The whole cast brings this show to life. Full of suspense, action and plenty of drama.

ABC’s Nashville: Commit

Stellar cast and great drama is enough to keep me around.

CW’s Arrow: Commit

Action packed story draws you in every week.

NBC’s Whitney: Drop

NBC’s Guys with Kids: Catch

What can I say, I on occasion enjoy a comedy that requires zero thinking. It reminds me of shows you find on TBS such as “Men At Work” or “Sullivan and Son”.

NBC’s Up All Night: Drop

The show lost its steam completely for me with the season 2 changes.

NBC’s The Office: If you stuck with it from the start Commit, the casual viewer will want to Catch as the show has had its ups and downs this final season.

NBC’s 30 Rock: Commit

Its final season has been terrific and it will be sad to see this one go.

NBC’s Parks and Recreation: Commit

The only show on tv that makes you really care about politicians and government. It will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

ABC’s Last Resort: Commit

Though the ratings have been awful the show is incredible and the mystery and cast is worth checking out weekly.

ABC’s Scandal: Commit

A bit of everything. Scandal packs so much into a single episode leaving the suspense and drama at a high.

CBS’s Person of Interest: Drop

I got into the show for the first few episodes of season one but as soon as the show took a break I had completely forgotten about it and had little reason to start watching again.

NBC’s Grimm: Commit

The show continues to impress me weekly. Who would of thought a show launching on a Friday would be doing so well now in its 2nd season and stronger then ever, story wise and ratings.

ABC’s Once Upon A Time: Catch

ABC’s Revenge: Commit

Commit for now. The complex story is starting to make me long for season 1 but I’m committed for now.

ABC’s 666 Park Avenue: Commit

Low ratings be damned I’m fully enjoying the show.

USA’s Burn Notice: Commit

Season 6 has been on fire with lots of high paced action.

CW’s Beauty and the Beast: Drop

Just didn’t find any of the characters likable and the plot has been done before and much better.

CW’s Emily Owens M.D: Drop

CBS’s The Big Bang Theory: Drop

Yes, I’m aware im going to get a lot of smack for this one. I liked the show briefly then I found NBC’s more unique line up in the same time slot and never looked back.

The Walking Dead: Commit

Scott’s List

My Personal List Of What Shows  To Commit To, Catch, Or Drop:

NBC’ Revolution: Commit

Revolution Is An Intriguing Drama Series That Will Keep You On The edge Of Your Seat Each And Every Week.

Fox’s The Mob Doctor: Catch

Although The Future Of This Show Is Most Likely Doomed, I Would Recommend That You Check It Out. I Enjoy Watching The Show Each Week. Also If You’re A Fan Of Medical Dramas, This Show Is For You.

NBC’s Go On: Catch

Go On Isn’t Quite A Relatable Show, Which Is Why It Get’s The “Catch” Rating. However, The Characters Are Eccentric And  Funny, And The Show Is All Around Fun. If You’re Looking For A Simplistic, Family Comedy, This Is It.

Fox’s Raising Hope: Commit

Raising Hope Is A Hilarious, Relatable Comedy, That Has Been Renewed Three Times. The Cast Members Are Relatable, And Entertaining. I would Recommend That You Commit To This Show, 100%.

ABC’s Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23: Catch

This Show Is Hilarious, But A Bit Raunchy, At Times. The Cast Roster Includes A Colorful Array Of Comedic Talent. The Show Packs Many Laughs Into An Episode, And It Is A Funny Comedy, To Watch.

NBC’s The New Normal: Catch

This Show Pushes The Limits, With An Old Grandma Who Constantly Makes Homophobic, And Racial Remarks. However, Somehow, NBC Was Able To Craft This, So That The Viewers Found It To Be Funny. Overall, The New Normal Is A Whole Hearted Comedy, That I Recommend You Should Catch Sometime.

CBS’s Vegas: Drop

Vegas Is Not As Great As I Expected It To Be. The Storyline Is Dull, And Contains A Lot Of “Fillers”. I Found Myself Constantly Looking At The Time, To See How Much Longer The Episode Was Going To Be On. Despite The Big Name Cast Members, Vegas Is Far Below Par.

FOX’s The Mindy Project: Catch

The Mindy Project Is A Fun Show, With Quirky Characters. I Recommend That You Watch The Show, When You Get A Chance To do So.

NBC’s Whitney: Catch

I Watched Whitney, When It Premiered Last Year, And Found The Show To Be A Fun, Simplistic Comedy. I Recommend That You Watch The Show, When You Want A Laugh.

NBC’s Law And Order: Special Victims Unit: Commit

Law And Order: SVU Is Perhaps The Best Branch Of The Law And Order Genre. The Show Is Intriguing, And You Can Start Watching From Basically Any Point In The Show, And Still Grasp The Story. I Started Watching The Show Around 2 Years Ago, And It Instantly Grasped My Loyalty.

NBC’s Guys With Kids: Commit

It’s Rare That I Recommend Committing To A Comedy, But This Show Deserves It. The Show Is Simplistic, But The Characters Are Highly Relatable. Also, The Show Is Produced By The Comic Genius, Jimmy Fallon. I Find Myself Watching The Show Every Week, And Impatiently Waiting For The Next Episode.

ABC’s Nashville: Commit

Nashville Swept Over Me, After Watching The Pilot Episode. I Feared, After Watching The Promos, That I Wouldn’t Like This Show, But I Was Wrong. The Show Has A Great cast Lineup, And The Storyline Is Ever So Addicting. And Don’t Worry About The Country Music Aspect Of The Show. I Highly Dislike Country Music, But That Didn’t At All Stop Me From Loving The Show.

NBC’s Chicago Fire: Commit

NBC’s New Hit Drama, Chicago Fire, Has Definitely Made An Impact, On Me. I Thought The Show Would Be Interesting, When I Heard About It A Few Months Back. Little Did I Know, This Show Is Addicting, And Difficult To Not Watch. The Show Is A Mix Between a Medical Drama, And An Action Movie. I Would Definitely Suggest That You Commit To This Show.

CW’s Arrow: Commit

Arrow Has Made Me A Huge Fan Of The Show. When You Think Of Arrow, Think Of An Epic Mix Between, Batman, The Cape, Along With A Hint Of Superman. This Show Has Become A Weekly Part Of My Wednesday Life. If You Haven’t Yet Watched Arrow, You Really Need To Do So, And Become A Regular. You Won’t Regret This Decision.

NBC’s Up All Night: Catch

Up all Night Is Almost Worthy Of The “Commit” Rating, But Not Quite. I Became A Fan Of The Show, After It Premiered, Last Year. The Show HAs 2 Quirky Lead Characters, And Laughs Galore.

Fox’s Ben And Kate: Catch

Ben And Kate Is A Rather Simplistic Comedy That Packs A Boatload Of Laughs Into A 30 Minute Timeslot. The Character’s Are Relatable, And The Show Is Fun.

TruTv’s Conspiracy Theory W/ Jesse Ventura: Catch

I’ve Recently Become A Regular Viewer Of  This Show, And It Is Highly Intriguing. This Show Revolves Around Jesse Ventura, And His Investigation Of Conspiracy Theories. I’ve Never Believed In Many Of The Conspiracy Theories That Are Out There, But This Show Has Me second Guessing Myself. Even If You Don’t Believe In Conspiracy Theories, I Recommend That You Check This Show Out.

NBC’s Last Resort: Commit

Although The Future Of This Show Is Foggy, I Would Definitely Recommend That You Commit To It. This Show Is Full Of Action, and It Even Has A Cloud Of Mystery Surrounding It. I’ve Become A Fan Of This Show, And I Would Recommend It.

ABC’s Scandal: Commit

Scandal Is A MAgnificent Drama Created By Shonda Rhimes. Scandal Manages To Grasp My Intrigue, And Loyalty, Each And Every Week. Scandal Has Everything That A Person Could Want: Drama, Romance, Humor, Conspiracy, Mystery, Intrigue. This Show Is Somewhat Underrated, But It Truly Is Great.

CBS’s Elementary: Commit

Although This Is A Show that Has Received Heavy Criticism, I Can See It’s True Potential. Before Watching Elementary, I  Thought That It Would Be A Dull Show. However, That’s Not The Case. Elementary Has Likeable Characters, And Something For Every Viewer. The Show Is Basically A Show About Crime Solving, So You Can Expect The Weekly Dose Of Mystery, Intrigue, Action, etc. I Feel That This Show Is Highly Underrated, And Should Receive A Bit More Praise.

ABC’s Revenge: Commit

Revenge Is A Magnificent And Addicting Drama. This Show Has Everything: Drama, Romance, Conspiracy, Cover-Ups, Murder, Plotting, etc. The Show Took Me By Storm With It’s Epic Series Premiere, Last Year. From Then On, I’ve Become a Big Fan Of The Show. The Show Will Keep You Guessing, And It Will Keep you On The Edge Of Your Seat, Every Week.

ABC’s 666 Park Avenue: Commit

Although The Ratings Of This Show Are Terrible, That Doesn’t Reflect Upon The Content Of It. This Show Is An Interesting And Mysterious Drama, tha tIs Full Of Supernatural Entities. When You Think Of This Show, Think Of LOST. 666 Park Avenue Can Be As Confusing And Mysterious As LOST, At Times. However, This Show Is Highly Addictive, and Entertaining.

AMC’s The Walking Dead: Commit ∞

What Can I Say About This Show? Regular Viewers Of This Show Know How Epic And Addicting It Is. I Got Started On This Show, By Watching A S1 Marathon 2 Years Ago, And I’ve Been A Huge Fan Since. This Show Has Everything That You Could Want: Romance, Action, and Of Course Violence And Zombies! For Those Of You Who Have Yet To Watch The Walking Dead, You Need To Do So, Immediately.

Here’s A Look At The Next All New Episode Of Scandal – 2×06 “Spies Like Us” –  


Quick and Dirty Catch Up.

  *Over the last few weeks I have been plagued by internet issues and health issues so I have not been keeping up with my writing as much as I normally would, for that I am sorry. It does however mean that I got sucked into a bunch more shows in my time of bored confinement. Winter is coming and I have to say I am looking forward to it. To keep this brief and to cover everything I want to cover, I will keep it to short, random thoughts about each episode and show, quick and dirty style.

 

Sons of Anarchy.                FX 10pm on Tuesday

Big changes in the club this season, everyone’s lives are being turned upside down and many are coming to an end as well. With Jax at the head of the table, not everyone is happy about it so as always there is big trouble in little Charming. Gemma is not handling the events of last season very well and seems to be on an unending bender, introducing us to a Latino pimp played by Jimmy Smitts and his escort service.

Survivor.                 CBS 8pm on Wednesday

Lots of rain and people behaving badly as usual and the chick I was rooting for was taken out for medical reasons. The child star and the baseball player are still there and so are two of the returning players and some more rain.

Nashville.                     ABC 10pm on Wednesday

This show surprised me in so many ways, first off because I don’t really like country music, I don’t really like soap operas and I don’t really think characters glorifying shallow, pretentious girls is a very positive message to send, the world is what it is though. So, the Queen of country music starts freaking out about a rising young starlet and her own declining record sales. While they are focused on destroying each other and fighting over the handsome charming guitar singer, a cute little waitress and her friend who runs the soundboard at the local bar do one song at an open mike night and are lucky enough to have a very special guest in the audience, a guest who is going to change everyone’s lives sooner or later. If this show is good enough to keep someone like me watching, it really must have something really special going for it, so I think any fan of that style of music will fall in love.

American Horror Story.              FX 10pm on Wednesdays

Season two takes us from the house in LA to an asylum somewhere in Massachusetts in the 60’s where most of the patients are not even half as crazy as the people who run the place. Right from the start AHS lives up to what the fans would expect with all the madness, violence, sex and perverse humor that made season one such a hit. Many faces are back again but in very different roles and there are many new faces who have already brought a deeper level of evil to this new season, this is becoming one of my favorites.

 

*This takes us to Sunday nights, the best night of the week.

 

Once Upon a Time.                     ABC 8pm on Sundays

Magic, magic, and more magic. The evil queen’s evil mom and a handsome Captain Hook. Ummm, yeah.

Revenge.                     ABC 9pm on Sundays

Another guilty pleasure, more rich people behaving badly but the twists and turns the show takes can be fun. It is one you kind of have to watch from the beginning but it is well worth it. Emily Thorne is a smart, wealthy, and somewhat sociopathic girl who has had a really, really rough life. She finds out that all her troubles were because of this one rich family so she goes after them and digs up more and more of the mystery as she goes. I wouldn’t say this is worth missing Dexter for but it is definitely worth keeping up with online or on demand, however you prefer.

666 Park Avenue.                     ABC 10pm on Sundays

What I have gotten out of it so far is that Terry O’Quinn (John Locke/ Smoke monster from Lost) runs the Hotel California (but in New York) with his wife, Vanessa Williams. It follows a young couple as they move in and get to know all the other strange residents while strange things happen around them. A writer is being stalked by a hot blonde and there is a strange room in the basement. I have really been enjoying this show, having been a huge Lost fan but I have a hard time waiting for stories to unfold so I got the book (By  Gabriella Pierce) and when I write about this next week I will have a better idea of what is going on with this. I promise not to spoil it for anyone though.

Dexter.                            Showtime 9pm on Sundays

For being a neat monster, our dear, demented Dexter has found himself cornered in a way he never has been before and he is not handling the pressures very well. Now that his secrets are out, life has gotten complicated for the dark defender. Deb is watching his every move and doing everything in her power to keep him away from bloody crime scenes while at work, LaGuerta has the blood slide and even the Russian mob is sniffing his trail. Granted, one problem solved another for Dexter but that still leaves a lot of problems still to be dealt with. None if this stops Dexter’s dastardly deeds and fans are left on the edge of their seats wondering how it will all play out, will Dexter go on, living by the code or will he be taken down by his own department, his own sister and all the other people he has grown close to over the years? We will just have to wait and see.

Homeland.                     Showtime 10pm on Sundays

If I had a website dedicated to this show, I still could not say enough good things about it. This season has been a roller coaster ride and we are only a few episodes in. While on a mission in Beirut and while losing her mind again, Carrie accidentally finds the missing video of Brodie before his failed assassination of the Vice President and Saul finds it, bringing it to the CIA after finally vindicating Carrie and telling her she was right all along. Even though Saul brings it to the attention of his government, he also manages to keep it quiet and it leads to Brodie being investigated again and when we last saw him, black bagged and being dragged from his hotel room. Now the fun really begins, will he get out of it? Will it all come crumbling down around the good Senator?

 

*And there we go; now I feel like I can get back on track this week and get more in depth with all these great shows. Thank you for being patient with me.
