I be a good righter.

I wish November sweeps were really December sweeps. I'm home all the time in December, ready to cozy up to a fire, to drink some hot cocoa and watch some TV. So, you know, it would seem December would be the perfect time to air new episodes of shows. But they don't.

So, I'm left with leftovers on my TiVo. The shows I'm not all that into, but feel some sort of obligation to have been piling up through the Fall, whilst I'm keeping up with CHUCK and SARAH CONNOR and whatever else I watch the night of.

So, now I've got a TiVo full of FRINGEs and ELEVENTH HOURs and DEXTERs. Yah. DEXTER. I'm surprised at that one myself. I just can't seem to bring myself to watch it. It, like previous seasons, was slow out of the gate. A steady course, I'm sure, toward the frenetic pace of the second half of the season. But this season, for some strange reason, I just can't stay that course during the slow bits. And so, the DEXTERs sit in my TiVo, a tad congealed, a bit sad looking and slightly moldy. One day during this month, I'll scrape off the mold and ingest them during a long marathon.

Instead, I prefer, these days to watch The REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY. I refuse to put in a season pass as the show is so vapid that I'm embarrassed to have it sit for even a moment in my TiVo. Instead, I just catch it whenever I can. PROJECT RUNWAY is over, all were watched the night of, or the morning after. Now TOP CHEF is back, and it's awesome. Pretty much anything Bravo throws my way will be watched. Immediately. In fact, I wonder if there's anything on right now...

    If it makes you feel better, I just can't seem to get past the first episode of this season of Dexter (and it took me a couple of times to even get through that episode).
