Hi everyone, I’m back again! This time I’m writing all about my favorite new shows on T.V. (and some older ones that started new seasons too!)
Fall & Winter is when I like to snuggle up and watch the latest good shows. It’s cold out, I’m lazier.. I’m not exactly sure why this is, but I just love to do it between the months of October-March! (Of course I love to do other things too.. but it’s a nice escape and whenever I’m not reading, listening to podcasts, or anything else.. I watch a good show)
I hope you enjoy my list of new shows that I’m enjoying.. let me know what you are watching too!

1. Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders
One of the newest shows to hit T.V. this fall is “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” on NBC. Starring Edie Falco from The Sopranos, it’s an 8-episode true-crime installment of the Law & Order franchise. Law & Order: SVU is one of my favorite shows (Which just began it’s 19th season… wow!) and I was so excited to watch a true-crime version of it.
If you know anything about me, it’s that my favorite genre of anything, is mystery/true-crime/etc. So when I heard about L&O: Menendez Murders, I was so excited. It has not disappointed either. It is set in 1993 when the real Menendez Murders took place, in Beverley Hills, CA, and is about two brothers, Lyle and Erik Menendez. When their parents are brutally murdered in their home, Detectives and FBI search to find out what happened to the wealthy couple… and then the two brothers begin to look suspicious.
Only 3 of the episodes have aired so far.. and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

2. Survivor: HvHvH
I’m a huge fan of both Survivor and Big Brother, so you’ll find me watching both of the franchises each year. This time around, the theme is Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers. I’ve never particularly cared for the different themes that survivor chooses, (Unless it’s an all-star season!) so to me that doesn’t really matter.
I found this season that there are a ton of personalities that I actually enjoy to watch, and that makes the show so much fun to tune into each Wednesday. I’m loving the dynamic of the Heroes tribe, which has a few big personalities (as expected). I don’t want to spoil anything that has happened in case you haven’t watched yet.. so make sure to tune in to watch! I will probably start a recap weekly blog post for each of the shows that I write about here.

3. Designated Survivor
Season two of the show has just begun.. and I absolutely love to hate this show. It’s truly an overdramatic, and ridiculous show. But Zach and I cannot wait for Thursday each week, just so we can watch it. (I mean all of this in a good way, by the way. We love to watch this show… it’s our smut!)
Starring Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, who was a low-level cabinet member in Washington D.C. until suddenly appointed as the President of the United States because he was the only survivor from an attack on the Capitol. SO much happens, so you definitely need to go back and watch season one if you missed it. Every single episode is juicy, and something exciting happens. It’s just one of those shows. But the premise is interesting, and the characters are likeable. Just give it a try. On ABC.
More shows that are on that I’m loving:
- Riverdale season 2 started yesterday on the CW. It’s also on Netflix. With Twin Peaks vibes mixed with One Tree Hill romance.. it’s absolute smut but I love it. I watch it with my friend Maddy and we love to talk about what happens each episode. Plus we have a crush on Cole Sprouse.. (Wednesdays at 8pm)
- Real Houses of Dallas season 2 began a few weeks back. It’s bad T.V. but I can’t look away.. (Bravo – Monday nights at 10pm PST)
- Wisdom of the Crowd: It just started on it’s first season a couple of weeks ago, and It’s not bad. If you don’t have the time, I’d say to skip it. But I’m digging it, and for now it can stay on my weekly watch list. (CBS – Sunday nights at 9pm PST)
