Weeknight Smackdown!

Things have changed, but not much. We get Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights off now. Sunday night is a grab bag–maybe we’ll watch True Blood, maybe we’ll watch something on DVD. The question is which night is better: Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday?

Cons: It’s Monday. We hate Mondays. And since Chuck and HIMYM overlap, we have to watch one and record the other, and that’s more work than we like to do on Mondays (if you’re amelie, that involves the wonderful DVR. If you’re kegger, it involves two televisions and a VCR. Either way, it’s less than fun.)

Thursdays: My Name Is Earl, The Office, 30 Rock, Supernatural (kegger:  Psst!  You forgot It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia!) (amelie: oops!)
Pros: We’ve already established that we like to laugh. The Office–we work with these people, y’all. Everyone who’s ever worked in an office has worked with a Michael or a Dwight or a Jim or a Phyllis, and kegger actually does work with both a Dwight and a Creed. Although kegger doesn’t really watch Earl or 30 Rock, she has to admit that they are a little funny and should be included on this list. One day, she will understand why Supernatural is on this list. (kegger:  I promise, I’m really going to watch Season 1 soon!  I promise!) (amelie: mmhmm.)

Cons: Once again, everything is jammed up all over the place. Record one thing and watch another live. It gets old, and we don’t like it. Plus, the shows we like are up agains CSI and Grey’s Anatomy, so they never win in the ratings. It’s no fun being a fan of a bubble show, and those seem to be the only shows we fall for (coughVeronicaMarscough).

So, who’s the winner of the Weeknight Smackdown? Drumroll please…

Thursday Nights
.
And we are unanimous in that.
