I love January for many reasons. I get to attend a cool New Year’s party, watch college football, enjoy vacation time with my family, and prepare for the new season of television! Here’s a quick list of my must-watch shows starting up in January 2009:
Superstars of Dance = January 4 (I’m not proud of this one, but I will watch with my daughter!)
Biggest Loser Families = January 6 (I always cry when I watch this show, maybe because I watch while sitting on the couch?)
Top Chef = January 7 (It’s a short hiatus, but my favorite cooking show is always welcomed back.)
The Office = January 8 (Michael, Dwight, Jim, Pam and the crew are my favorite characters on TV.)
30 Rock = January 8 (Please welcome Liz Lemon! [said in my best Oprah-voice])
24 = January 11 (Jack is back!)
American Idol = January 13 (Even my 4-year-old daughter knows I love this show. Guilty pleasure.)
Lost = January 21 (It’s about time!)
Big Love = January 18 (I canceled HBO when the Sopranos left the air, time to renew for Bill and the ladies!)
Okay, what is not on my list? What other shows are Laptop Television-worthy?
In the meantime, does anyone know the start date for Season 6 of Project Runway? According to Wikipedia, the season wrapped filming on Oct. 17, 2008 and the finalists will show collections at New York Fashion Week in February 2009. The site also says the first episode of Season 6 will air in January 09… anyone have details? Reminder that this time we are watching Tim and Heidi on Lifetime TV, not on Bravo.
