Hey Everyone.. once again I am a "Big Brother" After my previous little brother moved to Idaho in August I have been waiting patiently to be re-assigned to another little brother. Well today I met with a possible "little" named Nico. He is 8 years old and into your typical 8 year old stuff. And since I'm a big kid myself, we hit off right away and both mother and child liked me so we made it official. So now I have a new "little" brother named Nico. Our first meeting is this coming Sunday... can't wait.

Well it's been a few weeks since the new TV season has started. I have really tried to limit myself on how much TV I am watching. Many years ago I was up to about 35 hours a week and the past few years I have widdled it down less and less. Last year with all the good sci fi on TV it went back up a bit, but this year I am once again trying to slim down.
I don't watch any network shows on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
Sunday I watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Amazing Race, Simpsons and Family Guy. Those are all continuations from last year, nothing new.Monday is Heroes and Studio 60 both of these are new shows and Heroes is by far my favorite new show this season. If you aren't watching it.. you're missing out on some great TV, it's about ordinary people with extraordinary powers. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is okay, it's an Aaron Sorkin show, and I loved The West Wing so I thought I would give it a try. It's a good show but if I missed an episode I wouldn't be that upset.. unlike missing Heroes I would bend over backwards to find a copy of the episode.
Wednesday is The Biggest Loser, Jericho, Lost and The Nine. The Biggest Loser I have watched the past few years and again if I miss one it's not a huge deal. Jericho is a new series and I'm giving it a chance. It's about a nuclear disaster and the going ons in a small town cut off from everything. The idea is cool but some of the stuff seems very unrealistic, I'm going to give it a few more episodes before I decide to drop it or not. Of course there is Lost, this is its third season and this is one of my favorite TV shows currently on. Only been one episode so far.. but it was pretty good. Another new series that's on after Lost is The Nine. The only reason I'm watching it is because it's on after Lost. The first episode was pretty good but I'm not sure how far they can take it. Again.. it was good enough to make me want to come back for another episode.. but didn't knock me over like Heroes.Thursday is Survivor and CSI. I have seen every season of Survivor and still enjoying it. CSI we tape but haven’t really watched. It's a great series but that was one that we fell behind on and once you get behind it's hard to catch back up.
So that's pretty much it. I watch a few cable shows like Little People, Big World on TLC and Eureka on Sci fi, which just ended. So this TV season there is really only one new show that is a must for me, Heroes. Lost, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Survivor, Amazing Race, Little People, Big World, Simpsons and Family Guy are other returning shows that are a must but everything else I may or may not continue to watch.WATCH HEROES... Monday 9pm on NBC
