Dear Thursday: Let’s Get Ready for 2010…

… by going over 2009 ad nauseum. As the new year gets closer, I thought it would be a good idea to use our entertainment space to figure out our nominations for the Best and Worst Entertainment of the year, starting off with TV. Here are my nominations…

The-Big-Bang-Theory-big-bang-theory-515846_1024_768Best New TV Show of 2009: Hands down Modern Family. Such a lovely surprise with the added benefit that both my husband and my MIL like it, too. I already told you everything I love about this show here, so I won’t rehash — just encourage everyone to watch.

Best Returning TV Show of 2009: Big Bang Theory is pretty much the only show I make sure to watch on the same night it broadcasts and the character of Sheldon is pure comic genius. Plus they helped me towards hating Wil Wheaton even more than I already did.

v-logo-00Worst New TV Show of 2009: V. I wanted to love it, but it is SO boring and ham-handed. Also, it can’t decide whether it wants to be derivative of Lost or derivative of Battlestar Galatica, which just makes it a derivative mess.

Worst Returning TV Show of 2009: I want to say Heroes, but I took back my dignity and finally forced myself to stop watching it this year. So I’ll just say Scrubs, b/c it refuses to effin die already. If Scrubs were my boyfriend, I would have been dumped him … and filed a restraining order.

So now it’s your turn. Please nominate shows for each of these categories in the comments and at the end of the year, we’ll put the top two in every category to a vote. Fun, right?
