Gossip Girl Does Fashion Week
This weekend, I used the cable On Demand system to do a lot of catching up on new TV. Kitchen Nightmares continues to amuse me even though it's pretty much the same week after week. I watched the premiere of Life (which is on NBC tonight) and I was hooked all over again. This show flew under the radar last year and made it into the new season without anyone noticing. If you like quirky crime dramas, check this one out.
I also watched a promo for the new show Crusoe. Wow, it's like a movie! It's a huge, sweeping, historical drama -- reminded me of a more serious Pirates of the Caribbean - and it's a weekly TV series! I'm excited.
Tonight on TV - Monday, September 29Designer Michael Kors has a cameo tonight on a new episode of the CW's Gossip Girl, then Haley discovers what's going on between Carrie and Dan on One Tree Hill.

The night starts with a repeat of Kids by the Dozen, followed by both new and old episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8. The evening closes with the season opener of 17 Kids and Counting (17? How do these people keep track?)
