Best of 2009: Top 5 TV shows (for me)

Now, I had comments yesterday about how my taste in music was similar to a lot of friends'. I have to warn you that I probably DON'T have the best taste in TV shows ;). But for me, TV and movies are a way to escape reality. I get lost in the characters and it is an easy way to unwind from my day.
5. Lie to Me: This is a show I've just recently started watching. Airs on Fox Mondays 9/8c. This show is about a psychologist that can read clues embedded in the human face, body, and voice to expose the truth and lies in criminal investigations. Basically, he reads liars. It's terribly interesting and I haven't guessed the ending yet!

4. Royal Pains: This show piloted this year on USA. It is scheduled to return for a second full season in 2010. This is about Dr. Hank Lawson, who was fired from the hospital he worked in because he chose to save a neighborhood teen who appeared to need more medical attention over a powerful hospital patient, who ended up dying. He went off to the Hamptons for the weekend with brother, Evan, where he had to save a hot chic at a swanky party. Because of this, he became the new "concierge doctor" to the Hamptons.

3. Vampire Diaries: This show also piloted this year on the CW, Thursday 8/7c. In my defense, the main reason I love this show is because of what comes with it. I go pick up Chinese and my uncle and I sit and watch it (and sometimes my roomie joins us too!). I love spending time with him and I love how into the show we get! PS last night the show won Favorite New TV Drama at the People's Choice Awards!

2. Brothers and Sisters: Airs on ABC Sunday 10/9C. This has consistently been one of my favorite shows on television since it came out a couple years ago. The Walker family goes through so much drama it makes your own family problems seem like a piece of cake! Currently Kitty is battling Cancer, Norah was swindled out of a crap load of money from her much younger BF, Justin and Rebecca are pregnant, and so on and so forth...

1. Gossip Girl: Airs on the CW Monday, 9/8c. Come on, who DOESN'T love Leighton Meester(Blair Waldorf), Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey), Chase Crawford (Nate Archibald), Taylor Momsen (Jenny Humphrey), Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams), Kelly Rutherford (Lilly van der Woodsen), and Matthew Settle (Rufus Humphrey)??? The fashion, the drama, the secrets of Manhattan's upper elite are so far from my reality, that I can't help but be intrigued by the constant stream of gossip. Judge me if you want, but Chuck and his bow ties and Blair and her headbands could be the reason for what you're seeing in stores as of late.
Note: Usually Project Runway and So You Think You Can Dance would have made this list. I could not get into the latest seasons of either so they have been sad. Also, I love House, but I usually just catch re-runs of it with my sisters, who are OBSESSED.
What are your favorites?


  1. The Mentalist! Kinda like Lie to Me, he reads people's small behaviors to solve the crime...

  2. you're so good! i JUST added that to my dvr. so what if it's for simon baker...

  3. Brothers and Sisters has been AMAZING this year. And I can't believe Private Practice didn't make the top 5...

  4. I do not judge for GG... Jen and I are big fans! And I also love Brothers & Sisters! I have also demoted Runway and SYTYCD. You should watch Damages... FX this month!

  5. I Love Lie to Me. Was disappointed in Project Runway and You think you can dance too. Can't wait for 24 to start back next week. Still love I Love Lucy and old movies.
