Two and Half Men and Big Bang Theory on Monday nights
Glee on Wednesday nights

in the summer it's True Blood/Entourage/Hung on HBO on Sundays.

That's about it that I consider regular viewing.  Otherwise, it's just whatever I catch when channel flipping.

Anyone watch V last night? I just finished watching the pilot & to me it seemed rushed, could have gotten away with a 2 hr pilot but hey... Laura Vandervoort Supergirl is in it.  ;D

I watch way too much TV. Here's what I currently watch weekly when it's on:

Family Guy
The Simpsons
The Cleveland Show
House
Bones
Medium
Lost
Chuck (if/when it comes back)
The Office
Leverage
Monk
Psych
Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I think that's it. I used to watch Heroes but I've pretty much given up on it. :P

Recorded it, but haven't watched it yet.  Despite being rushed, did you like it?

Okay, got to watch V last night.  I thought it was a bit slow and just plain goofy getting started, but as the hour went on, the story really progressed pretty rapidly.  I'll be back next week to see what's going to develop.

It was ok. Need to see more & how it develops, it has interested right now. The effects are good tho for TV.

As for regular shows, not much I really watch that is interesting. The only real show that I am watching from day one is Smallville. Erica Durance as Lois Lane...

I think V has quite of bit of potential. I thought they got threw all the setup alot faster than the '80s miniseries did. I like the use of the terrorist sleeper cell as the start of the resistance and the intro of our first fifth columnist. I wonder if we will get a hybrid star child like the miniseries did.

Anyway, my list is Fringe, Fast Forward, Sanctuary, Star Gate Universe and V.

I just finished watching it and I must say I enjoyed it immensly.

The 80s series was good, this was way better.
I hope it keeps going for a good while

I just watched V last night and I liked it well enough.  It'll be interesting to see where they go with it.

Finally checked this out last night and it was pretty good.  Seemed like they covered a lot in just an hour.

*SPOILER*
So, I'm watching with my wife who never saw the 80's series.  When the two FBI agents pull up to the night meeting I joked that the lead chick's partner was actually an alien.  We were both pretty shocked with the ending and even more shocked to see scenes for upcoming episodes!

V ep2
Seems they borrowed from BSG this time instead of firefly
Bit of a strange one that episode, its definately laying the ground work for some shenanigans.

Ding, dong, Dollhouse is dead...

Saw that one coming.  Joss Whedon + FOX = Fail.  It didn't help that Dollhouse wasn't Firefly...or Angel...or Buffy.  I honestly can't say I'll miss the show all that much.  I never did get into it and I'm not sure if it was just that I didn't "get" something about the show or if it really wasn't that good.

Either way, that frees up an hour of my Friday night to watch more compelling shows like Stargate Universe or, well, pretty much anything else.
