Tivo Tuesday

No work today which means I get to lounge around in my PJ's and play with my little boy all day. During naptime I try to cram in some housework and "me" time, so I decided to catch up on my Tivo. This week was a lot of re-runs so I didn't have much to watch. This is what I did:

SAG Awards and Red Carpet: I like the SAG's because they are short and sweet. They give out awards in all the major categories and leave out all the fluff of the Oscars and Golden Globes. The highs for me : Sandra Bullock giving Betty White the Lifetime Achievement Award and their sarcastic banter. Sandra's win for the Blindside-great movie- and her eloquent speech that brought a little tear to my eye. And Michael C Hall's win for Dexter, an award he should have won years ago. Overall everyone was very witty and acceptance speeches weren't as boring as they usually are.

There were no real lows for me, except for maybe the fact that I was torn between my pick for Ensemble in a Comedy Series. I am glad Glee won because it's a great show, but Modern Family is seriously one of the best comedies I've ever seen. I highly recommend watching it if you aren't already.

Other than that...Jon Hamm-ditch the woolly mammoth look, JT- cut the 'fro already, and for goodness sakes Drew Barrymore stop teasing your hair.

The Deep End: The Deep End is ABC's latest drama about a group of law associates fresh out of law school and getting their feet wet in er...The Deep End. (Catchy isn't it?) With Billy Zane, back to his bad boy roots and a cast of, for the most part, up and comers the show is basically Grey's Anatomy in a law office setting.That being said, I enjoyed the first episode enough to see where this series takes me.

Other than that I caught up on Ugly Betty, which was good as always. The scene where Hilda finds out she miscarried was particularly heartbreaking, but it was refreshing to see a story line involving pregnancy loss. It it so common yet it is rarely addressed in television.

And then of course there is my guilty pleasure MTV's Teen Mom. It's the girls from 16 and Pregnant and how they are coping with life as a teenage mother. There are 4 girls. Catilyn, who gave her daughter up and lives with her 16 year old boyfriend Tyler. To me these two are the most mature, mostly because at the tender age of 16 they realized that they wanted a life for their child that they could not provide. They are a sweet young couple, trying to make a better life for themselves and every episode I watch I am rooting for them. Then there is Maci, a sweet southern girl who needs to dump her loser of a boyfriend. Her little boy Bently is one of the cutest little boys I have ever seen. She is a good mother, and I think once she drops her boyfriend, who has no clue on how to be a father, she will be fine. Amber and Gary are a train wreck to watch and it pains me to see their little girl growing up in their chaos. I'm not a fan of theirs, nor to I care for Farrah, a spoiled brat with a dysfunctional family. Last week Faraah's mother was arrested for "choking" Farrah during and argument and I was not surprised in the least. Her mother always seemed a little off to me, even if I agreed with her about Farrah not spending enough time with her daughter. Maybe it is wrong for me to be so judgemental, but they are the ones that went on National TV with their business, so I don't feel that bad about it!

Ok...gotta go. Kevin just came home with bags full of dessert options and I must pick one. Ok maybe more than one. American Idol auditions are on tonight, my take on that later!

I love Modern Family and Teen Mom too! I also agree with your assessments of all the characters, esp. Farrah! ;-) I don't watch it regularly, but Casey and I laid in bed the other day when we had a sitter and watched a marathon (sad, i know...)!
