On the lighter side

I am addicted to Men In Tree and Ugly Betty. Oh, and I should probably fess up to enjoying American Idol as well. Yes, it's my dirty, little secret. However, I am peeved, you know. Yes, peeved. Last night, I waited with great anticipation to see my latest fix of MIT and UB. I knew AI was on, but as much as I may enjoy it, MIT and UB are by far my favorites. And I can easily go without seeing AI on Thursday. I am more interested in watching the contestants perform than who is kicked off. It's a waste of time to watch an entire two hour show when I'm not really going to say anything new. I can find out via the internet.

So, I was really disappointed Thursday night to discover my two favorite shows weren't on. Is it because of the Oscars? Is it because they don't want to compete with AI? Is it just to frustrate the hell out of me? I mean, how can they expect to have their audience stay loyal if they don't give us weekly fixes for our addiction? (And I am addicted. Completely. However, I won't continue to be addicted if I don't get a fix soon. LOL)

Instead, I watched Grey's Anatomy. It's not my favorite show, because, for the most part, it's too angst-ridden for me, but it sucked me in on Thursday. LOL And then, of course, something happened right before I saw the ending, and I thought Meredith died. I was not happy about that, even if I am not a big fan. It seems stupid to kill off the main character, IMHO. Perhaps I will watch it next Thursday to see how she is doing.

So, do any of you have favorite shows? Are you ever frustrated when the producers don't come out with new segments (not the word I am looking for, but I can't think of it at the moment) every week during the season? Do you want to strangle them for teasing you then saying, "Neener, neener, neener"?
