Buzz In: What's Your Ideal Night of TV?

Buzz In: What's Your Ideal Night of TV?

Sometimes, I think network programmers manage to pair shows together perfectly (can't really argue with Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill). Other times, not so much (what do Knight Rider, random reality shows, and Lipstick Jungle have in common?). In this age of DVRs, I spend a lot of time thinking about how I'd rearrange the week if I could just create my own custom programming lineup.

So today, I wanted to pass that challenge on to you. What shows would you pair together if you could pick and choose anything you wanted from the lineup? Dramas, comedies, network and cable shows — anything's fair game. The only rule is that together, they should total three hours (the standard length of a network primetime programming block) or less.

I'll start you out with one of my current favorites: I dream of the TV happiness that would come from watching Greek followed by Privileged, moving into Samantha Who? and capping things off with How I Met Your Mother. What's your ideal night of TV?

Gossip Girl, Grey's, and The Ex List (not that great, but totally mindless entertainment, like a palate cleanser after Grey's).

I think I'd go with Chuck, Gossip Girl, 90210, Ugly Betty, and then wrap it up with Lipstick Jungle :)

HIMYM Pushing Daisies The Office Bones Or... Buffy Pushing Daisies How I Met Your Mother You didn't say they had to be new on-air Maybe Dollhouse will be really good and I can fill the night with that. I'm about to give up on Heroes. I greatly prefer HIMYM to Chuck (even though that show is way cute). I tested it out this week and I watched Big Bang and HIMYM and didn't miss Chuck. I'm done with House and anything else I watch is pretty much for background noise. Most of the stuff I watch I have to catch online anyhow 'cause I'm never around when anything I like is airing and I refuse to pay for tivo, even though it's nice. I'm a single gal, do I look like I'm made of money? :)

My ideal night of TV would start off with Gossip Girl, move on to Privileged, then finish with Pushing Daisies. But I watch way too much TV so one night doesn't cut it :). Night number two would start with Samantha Who? first, then 30 Rock followed by Chuck, and finish it all off with Supernatural.

No! Wait! Friends!!! If I can have that instead of How I Met Your Mother, I'm one happy girl.

CSI:Crime Scene Investigation (No Miami or NY, please), Lost, and a special hour long episode of The Office. If I can't have a hour long episode I'd gladly substitute it for a unsual half an hour episode then probably How I Met Your Mother.

There seems to be too many good shows on Mondays, and not enough to watch for me on Tuesdays so this is how I would arrange my schedule if I could: Sundays: The Amazing Race (flip to Extreme Makeover Home Edition on commercials), Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy* Mondays: Gossip Girl (flip to How I met your Mother on commercials), One Tree Hill, The Hills (the same, basically), and maybe Californication at 10:30? Tuesdays: America's Next Top Model* and 90210 Wednesdays: Pushing Daisies, Ugly Betty, Project Runway Thursdays: Lost, maybe True Blood?(need to find better shows to watch on this night)

Lipstick Jungle House The Hills Weeds and I'd throw in an extra half-hour to wrap up my tv bliss with Californication

House > Heroes > Lost would be a perfect night. Ugly Betty, Project Runway/Top Chef, 30 Rock and the Office would be another great night. And the Fox Sunday night lineup is already good.

well i like how 90210 is paired with Priviledged, but i think that something else needs to make me tune into Greys since it's not doing a decent job stand alone. i feel like maybe LJ should be on cause that's a must watch for me. i used to like when Grey's was on sundays, and i def tune in for Brothers and Sisters so they should swap out desperate housewives for Greys.
