The 2018 Winter Olympics are upon us! This year’s games take place in Pyeongchang, South Korea from February 9th – 25th. So get ready for weeks worth of incredible athletic feats, riveting rivalries, and eye-catching curling pants.
It’s the end of another the calendar year, which means it’s time for another “Best of” list! As always, I can’t watch everything on TV so the picks below are based solely on my viewing habits and undoubtedly leave out some stellar tv shows and moments. But enough with the obligatory disclaimer, here’s my completely arbitrary picks for the best TV of 2017.
Blindspot is now on Fridays, and what better way to kick off the weekend than with a nice drink and your couch? If you’re down for not going out, grab a six pack and settle in from an evening of kickass action and puzzle solving goodness. Cheers!
Several TV shows I watch are making the move to Friday nights this coming TV season and while most of Twitter was up in arms about their favorite shows moving to the so-called “Friday Night Death Slot”, I was actually pretty pleased with the scheduling moves. (Here’s the Fall 2017 TV Schedule for reference.)
The traditional broadcast TV season is over, which means one of two things: either the shows you love are on hiatus, or gone for good. To find out the fate of your favorite shows, check TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard. (It also means TV By The Number’s Cancel Bear is in hibernation once again.)
“Peak TV” is not a myth. There’s a lot of damn fine shows to watch essentially all year round these days, which makes selecting these superlatives both easier and more difficult. I obviously can only watch so much, so there’s a hundred percent chance I’ve missed something or somethings. Thankfully the list below is completely subjective and doesn’t actually matter. So without further ado, here’s my picks for the best of 2016.
Last weekend I drove from New Jersey to Indianapolis and back to see Penn State play in the Big Ten Championship game. It wasn’t something I initially planned to do, but after I was able to get my hands on some reasonably priced tickets and was offered a couch to sleep on by some friends in Ohio, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. So in less than a week I went from browsing StubHub to driving over 1,400 miles for a football game.
This Presidential Election has been rather divisive, but I think we can all agree on one thing – it needs to be over. So after you cast your vote on Tuesday, why not take your mind off things with some TV. No, I’m not recommending you watch the 24-hour news cycle, I recommend checking out these election day-inspired episodes.
