Every year I look forward to the new fall tv shows that are premiering, hoping to find a new must-see to get hooked on during my endless hours of free time. See the way it works around my house, is when all the kids go to bed I pull out my lap top and get back to work and turn on my recorded shows in peace and quiet. I am getting chills right now thinking about it. Lately, I haven’t had my evening tv fix, other than the occasional Big Brother 13 episode (love that show) and have had my fair share of tv reruns. There is just something about the fall tv line up that excites me. It always has. I also look forward to see new episodes of my favorite returning fall shows. I anxiously await season premieres – they are fun.
