That's funny, I thought it was Snoop Dogg at first.

Oh and I think you would like The Guild.

I've been watching White Collar on USA Network. It is a pretty entertaining show.

USA has been pretty good with shows as of late. Burn Notice, Psych, Royal Pains and In Plain Sight are all quite entertaining. I have no idea why NBC isn't cribbing writers, producers and or actors from whomever is making good decisions there. White Collar looks well done but despite that I haven't decided if I want to follow it.

It's a good show. I would suggest you check it out.

Just caught up with Stargate: Universe, and although I was kinda "meh" after the pilot, this show is really growing on me, especially liked the latest ep.
I haven't seen SG: Atlantis at all and only watched the first few seasons of SG1, and although there were some things technology-wise that were totally new to me, I was able to follow quite well.

I've never been a reality show kind of person, but this year I've been watching two of them, and enjoying them quite a bit. So You Think You Can Dance and The Amazing Race.

Also enjoying Big Bang Theory, The Office and 30 Rock.

Damn, El Tigre Chino is in it? I'm not sure that's enough to overcome my utter loathing of Ray Romano, but it's definitely a factor.

I'm only meh about RR, but I had to check it out due to the Bacula.

El Tigre only had one line, but he's in the credits so I think we'll see more of him.

We have a nice little sword and sorcery series called "Merlin".

The characters are from Malory but the story/plot doesn't fit.

It's set in Arthur's youth when Uther Pendragon is King. It's not as slapstick as Monty Python and the Holy Grail but it's quite light hearted escapism.

Marathon? I didn't know there were more than two episodes. I caught the last 15 minutes of what I thought was the first one, and what I thought was the second one is still on the DVR.

I could totally believe the complete ingraciousness of the woman at the end of the one I saw. (It was the one where the bathroom was so bad they hired an outside contractor - or is every ep like that?) Her son and daughter were all crying and happy that they had saved her from what she was living in, and she's all blase about it. She's like, "It's okay. I liked my old chair better. I can't find anything." Your kids deserve better, lady.

I'm trying to catch Holmes on Homes on HGTV whenever I can. He fixes stuff that bad contactors or incompetent builders leave in their wake.

I think there are 3 or 4, so.... mini-marathon?

I just caught a couple on OnDemand this morning.

What am I doing watching TV in the A.M.? I have a cold!!

Hoarders is out. I watched maybe two episodes and it just wasn't for me. I like shows like Clean House, Clean Sweep, and Mission Organization, because the people's homes and stuff are actually decent underneath the piles of mess, and all they have to do is pick up and organize. In all the Hoarders I've seen, it's more about trying (and failing) to find a salvageable house underneath the many cubic feet of garbage. Not so cute.

Men of a Certain Age, on the other hand, is a smash hit in our house! We're all three watching it every week and loving it.

Biggest Loser and American Idol are back in ... for now.

I'm fascinated by Hoarders, perhaps because I'm a bit of a hoarder myself, but these people make me feel better about my benign hoarding.

Watched Bear Grylls eat fresh fish eyeballs last night on Man Vs. Wild.

Recorded, but haven't watched Howe & Howe Tech yet.

American Idol is out, as The Biggest Loser and Lost have filled up my two DVR slots for Tuesday nights. It's better this way; I don't have time for AI. It's not just that the show is on for four to five hours per week, but that I then read about ten different recaps, blogs, and prediction websites the next day.

Heroes is done early, due to the Olympics, thank god.

I'm still especially enjoying Modern Family, Community, and Men of a Certain Age. Oh! I also added Parks and Recs, since I'm already watching the other three shows in that NBC comedy block on Thursday nights, but I'm not interested enough to look at back episodes or anything.

Caprica is in as well.
