Her On the Tube (What's filling up my DVR right now?)

O...O...O...Not a lot of words start with the letter O. Well, "on" starts with "o". I think I can do something with that!


I am a TV Lover. It's how I relax and the downtime I need after a long week. Since Sean shared his favorite Netflix shows here, I felt it was my turn to share what's filling up my DVR right now.

Here's what I am watching right now...

Every day I record Gilmore Girls on ABC Family. I have seen all of the episodes so many times, but it doesn't matter. The wit and comedy cracks me up and it is perfect background noise while I check Facebook and read some blogs.

Castle is a show that was introduced to me by a close friend. I had missed the first few seasons, but I started watching and fell in love. Thanks to TNT I have caught up and the new episodes are so good. I love Kate and Castle. I love all the supporting characters. I love their side stories, and the creativity of the crimes. If you aren't watching - you are missing out!

HGTV has some really good shows, one of which is Love It or List It. (Love It or List It, Too is good also.) This is a show where homeowners work with a realtor and a designer to redo their own home and look for another. They must choose at the end whether to stay or go. I like the mix of design and house-search. I also love the interaction between the two "hosts" (the designer and the realtor) - they make the show fun!

A new Food Network show has become a favorite. It's called Beat Bobby Flay. It is a half hour episode each week where an amateur chef tries to beat Bobby Flay in a cooking competition. It sounds easy, but the amateur chef gets to pick the dish they are going to make and Bobby doesn't know what it is in advance. He has lost a few times! Definitely check this one out!

I have been a fan of Survivor since its 2nd season. I love the competition and the blindsides. I am really loving this season. The people who are competing this season are smart and calculating without being obnoxious. It's a nice change!

Gordon Ramsey is hilarious and such a hard-nose. He does not take any grief from his staff. His high expectations must be met! The challenges are fun and I like watching all of the chefs try to win that amazing job.

Another HGTV show that has become a favorite recently is Flip or Flop. Even Sean, who doesn't like watching TV shows (because of the commercials) will listen in when I watch this one. It follows a couple who flip houses for a living. Sometimes they are successful and sometimes they aren't. The couple is fun and it's interesting to watch the houses transform.



These shows are ones that I am waiting to start again. My fingers are crossed that it is soon!

Top Chef is a chef competition show on Bravo. The chefs work hard at challenges and try to impress a panel of judges. I have watched every season/episode and I am never bored!
The spin-off, Top Chef Masters, is a great show also.

I was introduced to Downton Abbey late last year. I checked out all the old seasons from the library and was caught up in just a few days. I fell in love. I need to watch this past season (waiting for the library to get that one too) and then I will be ready to join some friends for a night of tea, knitting, and an amazing show.

Tim Gunn. Heidi Klum. Motivated contestants. Awesome challenges. Thank you, Mood! Project Runway is perfection! I look forward to each and every new season. 
The spin-offs, Under the Gunn and Project Runway All-Stars, are also winners in my book.


These shows are new, but my fingers are crossed that they are going to be all that I are hoping for:

Kitchen Casino is a new show on Food Network where chefs compete in casino themed challenges. The first is slots (food combinations show up on a slot machine), the second is roulette (where the kitchens spin on a wheel and you don't know whose food you have to cook), and the third is poker (trade in that one ingredient card or not? maybe what you get will be worse??). I am really hoping this one is as good as it seems.

This is another show that I had not heard of before the ladies I knit with started talking about it. It's a British show on PBS that shows the lives of nurses and midwives in the 1950s. I have not watched any of this season, but I am hopeful that I will love it as much as the girls say I will. It would be nice to have a fix when Downton Abbey is not showing any new episodes.


What are your favorite TV shows? I would love to find some more fun shows to fill up my DVR. 


Happy Watching,

  2. I admit I like almost anything on HGTV but Flip or Flop is one of my favorites as well! I am definitely a fellow Downton fan :)

  3. You watch a variety of shows! I like Hell's Kitchen too; I think I'd be afraid to get anywhere close to the kitchen if Gordon Ramsay was in there :)

    Only thing I really follow TV wise is American Idol; otherwise hubby seems to "own" the remote :)

  4. Gilmore Girls is one of those shows we put on occasionally and then wonder why we didn't watch it when it was new. I think we've seen all the reruns of Castle by now; maybe we should start watching the new shows.

    I'm assuming that Miranda Hart is still on Call the Midwife. Have you ever seen her comedy show? One of the funniest we've seen.

    Stopping by from the A to Z Challenge!
