Autumn Evenings Are For...

Television. What else?? Ok, maybe an after dinner walk. But after a nice walk, showers, and jammies it is time to hit the couch as a family and watch our new fall shows. We have our schedule all set, and while we watch some shows with our little one, we wait until after her bedtime for others. Here is what we will be watching as we are cozy on our couch these next few months...

Dancing with the Stars premiers Monday, September 18 at 8:00 Eastern on ABC.
While technically not my favorite Monday night offering on is a good filler until the next season of The Bachelor. And although we always lament the fact that we know hardly any of the stars, we always find someone to root for.

We love Halloween. And we love The Halloween Baking Championship on Food Network. It premiers Monday, September 25, at 9:00 Eastern on Food Network.
It is just a fun and festive way to enjoy one of our favorite holidays.

The Good Doctor begins Monday, September 25 at 10:00 Eastern on ABC.
We are really looking forward to this, because we just finished watching Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates in Bates Motel. He is an incredible actor. Absolutely amazing.

This new series begins on Tuesday, September 26 at 10:00 Eastern on NBC.
Although I am very familiar with this case, I am a sucker for true crime.
So we thought we would give this one a try.

One of our favorites, Survivor, returns Wednesday, September 27, at 8:00 Eastern on CBS.
This show never gets old. Some seasons are better than others, but Jeff Probst, the one constant, keeps it exciting. 

And this. We have to wait awhile for The Walking Dead. It returns Sunday, October 22 at 9:00 on AMC. Intense to be sure, but full of touching and complicated relationships too.

Stranger Things Season 2 will be released entirely on Friday, October 27 on Netflix. We always have a dilemma as to watch the entire season at once, or try to space it out. We will see how that goes!

And finally. If you watch one thing this season, it should be The Crown. Season 2 premiers on Friday, December 8 on Netflix. This series is simply amazing. If you get Netflix for this alone, it is worth it.

Well, there you have it.
The shows we will be watching and recording and loving.
What is on your watchlist, my friends?
Am I missing something?


  1. I love the Halloween bakeoff too! We're looking forward to Walking Dead, Greys Anatomy and This is us. Survivor is good too. We look forward to Big Brother all year but this summer was so horrible that we stopped watching. I am also excited for all of the Hallmark movies coming out. whoop.

  2. Hello!! It's been awhile!! We've had bad weather here in the South from Irma, but she wasn't too angry by the time she was in my area! :)

    My children love any bake off shows! They "pretend" they're on the cupcake wars, etc. show by trying to bake a better dessert than their siblings, then they're the judges and try and comment on each dessert that was made. They'll sometimes even judge my food at dinnertime, thankfully my food is good enough to pass on unto the "next round"!

    Hope you have a wonderful day!!

  3. Oh yes! I love Survivor! I am looking forward to This Is Us starting. Such a wonderful show, so real and honest. It's really the only show I watch in real time though. But the Crown, oh my favorite. I cannot wait!!

  4. I would love to watch the Crown. We don't do Nerflix. I wish there was a dvd collection. We aren't big watchers of anything. But we will watch the new season of Poldark on Masterpiece.

  5. I would love to watch the Crown. We don't do Nerflix. I wish there was a dvd collection. We aren't big watchers of anything. But we will watch the new season of Poldark on Masterpiece.

  6. I am a Masterpiece lover, and I just got Netflix and am enjoying so many of the series on it, so will have to put The Crown on my list for this fall as well. Enjoy a cozy day my friend.

  7. Ohhhhh, I'm watching first season of "Stranger Things" on Netflix now!!!!!!! There will be a second season? Thank you for telling me. :-) We loved so many shows on NetFlix, mostly foreign police shows, at first. Then we have to wait for new seasons.

    I am finally finding that there are a lot more Net Flix offerings, that I thought, at first. If one gets the idea, of how to search for them. Just another learning curve! :-)

    Actually, we haven't watched regular tv, in some while. We tired of our old shows, because they seemed to 'change.' And little by little, we dropped out. My husband does like HGTV type shows, and car restoration, and science. And those have new seasons too.

    You have it best! Being excited about coming shows!

  8. Sounds good, we haven't worked out our programmes yet. We love to sit in front of the stove and watch TV with a little crafting project.

  9. I'm right there with you on many of these Babes!! I need to get Netflix!! Ugh! ;)

  10. This is not on TV, but I my children and I are going to watch KiKi's Delivery Service next week! I have not seen that movie in years. I know it will bring me back to the time all of my children were little. Hugs. Juli

  11. Hi Billie Jo!

    Love your line-up. I love DWTS, it's a must see for me. I know I need to watch the, Crown, but I need to have the perfect time set aside to do it...I know, I'm a binge watcher! I loved, Stranger Things season 1, I can't wait to watch season 2, also a binge watch! The Good Doctor also sounds really good. Yes, Fall nights are for getting cozy and watching a good movie or TV show!


  12. Hi Billie Jo. Although I do not blog, I faithfully read a few including yours. I enjoy your blog immensely because it is so warm, honest, inspiring, and, at times, humorous. You do a great job! --Gigi

  13. Oh Girlfriend! I wish I could visit you and bring a big batch of popcorn. I Love almost all these shows. I'm counting down to Stanger things and the crown. I am still trying to get though the beginning of Walking Dead,I got sidetracked with Bloodline. I'm sure Ill catch DWTS Thanks for sharing, there are some I was not aware of and will add them to my list.

  14. I'm looking forward to the new seasons starting! Now that it's getting cool and dark earlier I'm ready to snuggle in with some TV time. I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of reruns! Hubby printed of the new schedule and we have picked out new shows to try and confirmed when our old favorites return. We'll set the DVR up this weekend so we don't miss any. Bring on the cozy evenings!

  15. The Crown and Stranger Things are the ones I am waiting for! One of the best parts of fall-TV shows all start back up new.

  16. Yes...yes...yes to all these! Especially The Crown! I cannot wait for season 2!!! Love cozy autumn evenings, especially with good TV! Halloween Baking Challenge is awesome too. John and I love that one! : )

  17. The Crown!!! I can HARDLY wait till it comes back on!!!!
