I said it last year and I’ll say it again this year: It’s the MOST wonderrrrrfulllll time of the year! My friends and family can vouch for me – I have been having daily freak outs whenever I see a new preview for a show starting soon. Living in Texas, I can’t really use the excuse that it’s too cold outside, but I’ve got no one to answer to, so I’ll be watching all the TV possible… because there’s some really great (and by great, I mean trashy) stuff coming up! Here’s what I’ll be watching this season:
“Teen Mom 2”, season 9 (MTV) – Reality Drama
The preview shows lots of different things happening amongst the moms, but the real drama is with Jenelle (I bet you’re not shocked). Half of the drama is that Jayce’s father comes back – and we’ve really never seen him since Jayce was born. And then comes the infamous 911 call from Jenelle. This is gonna be a goodie. Check out the preview here. Airs Mondays at 9/8c – starting tonight!
“Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club”, season 1 (mtv) – reality
This is the train wreck I can’t look away from. We’ve all seen Ms. Lohan try and try to make it in Hollywood, but she gets in her own way. So now, she’s building her very own club, and it appears to have a Vanderpump vibe to it, but I can’t imagine it’ll be as great as that. However, I’m going to be reviewing the entire season right here, episode by episode. See the preview here. Airs Tuesdays at 8/7c – starting tomorrow!
“My Big Fat Fabulous Life”, Season 6 (TLC) – Reality Drama
This started last week, but if you want to jump in, there’s still time! I’ve watched every season of this show and have fallen in love with Whitney and her family. This season, it’s picking up with Buddy struggling with his sobriety, and Whitney is still very serious about adopting a child. From the snippets of upcoming episodes – we’re in for a wild ride! Airs Tuesdays 8/7c.
“Project Runway All Stars”, Season 7 (Lifetime) – Reality Competition
It’s the FINAL season of “Project Runway All Stars” and wow, it’s the end of an era. Don’t worry though, because a fresh season of “Project Runway” is coming this year and it’s back on Bravo. Anyway, I’m solely watching this season to see Louisiana champion, Anthony Ryan Auld – I love his stuff and was lucky enough to visit his brick-and-mortar store in San Antonio last year. This is one episode in, but you haven’t missed much. Airs Wednesdays at 9/8c.
“The Masked Singer”, Season 1 (FOX) – Reality Competition
Okay, I definitely was NOT going to watch this, but the mystery factor was really pulling at me and I watched the first episode, which aired last week. It is a singing competition, but it’s much less about the singing talent and more about figuring out who is behind the mask – literally. It could be ANY celebrity, and the judge’s panel has some funny guesses. It’s worth a watch. Airs Wednesdays at 9/8c.
“Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles”, Season 11 (Bravo) – Reality
I miss some of the original cast members on this show, but always watch it for the real estate. You can’t beat these views! Plus, this season we get to see Josh Altman as a dad and Josh Flag in a serious relationship. I’ll take it. Airs Thursdays at 9/8c.
“Music City”, Season 2 (CMT) – Scripted Reality
Yep, scripted reality. “Music City” is another brain child from Adam DiVello – creator of “The Hills” and “The City”, and well, I pretty love whatever he does, real or not. I was certain this show would not get a second season, but I am SO HAPPY it did, because it’s “The Hills” all over again, only in Nashville, and with much hotter dudes. Plus, there’s way more drama this season – the real kind of drama. Airs Thursdays at 10/9c.
“Siesta Key”, Season 2 (MTV) – Scripted Reality
Another show that I didn’t think would survive but… I nearly screamed when I saw this preview! I cannot get enough of these rich little brats and now they’re all out to get each other… all from the comfort of Alex’s mansion, though. Premiers Tuesday, January 22 at 9/8c.
“Broad City”, Season 5 (Comedy Central) – Scripted
It’s the final season of “Broad City”! Noooooo! I will be so said to see this hilarious duo go, but let’s enjoy it while we’ve got it. The trailer doesn’t really give us any clue what to expect, but I imagine it’ll be funny. Premiers Thursday, January 24 at 10/9c.
“Celebrity Big Brother”, Season 2 (CBS) – Reality Competition
I didn’t watch season one, but I am SO curious who will be part of the cast for season two – they haven’t revealed it yet, but I’m on the watch! “Big Brother” always brings the drama. Premiers Monday, January 21.
“RENT”, Live Event (FOX) – Broadway Musical Performance
“RENT” is my favorite musical, so when I saw that FOX was airing a live performance of it, I marked my calendar! The cast will include Tinashe as Mimi Marquez, Brennin Hunt as Roger Davis, Jordan Fisher as Mark Cohen, Vanessa Hudgens as Maureen Johnson, Brandon Victor Dixon as Tom Collins, Valentina as Angel Dumont Shunard, Kiersey Clemons as Joanne Jefferson, and Mario as Benjamin Coffin III. Airs Sunday, January 27 at 8/7c.
I have also been watching “Vanderpump Rules”, “Below Deck” and “Top Chef”, but I didn’t add those to the guide because they are all already several episodes deep.
Tell me what you’re looking forward to watching this winter… I’m always up for cramming more TV into my schedule 🙂
