In the meantime, the most exciting thing I've done is go back and re-title all of my season 3 Under the Dome posts with lyrics from Frank Turner's "Recovery," because if ever there was a show that personified a rock-bottom wreck in desperate need of overhaul, it is THAT ONE.
I also poked around My Local Sitcom Rerun King Station's schedule to see the final word on what they're changing up this fall. BEHOLD! A reminder schedule for myself of the watchable (well, listenable) options:
2:00 PM: Seinfeld
3:00: Everybody Loves Raymond
3:30: The Middle (moved from an hour at 5, so basically I'll never see it again. Sigh.)
4:00: King of Queens (moved from 7)
5:00: Rules of Engagement (FINALLY, it is in the hour that sounds great in theory but is actually always too early for me to turn it on, so I will stop seeing it)
6:00: Mike and Molly (curses. they've still got the sweet slot. 6:30 is always when I turn on TV, looking for entertainment pre-primetime)
7:00: How I Met Your Mother (YAY IT'S NOT GONE AND I DON'T FEEL COMPELLED TO STAY UP LATE FOR IT! Moved from 11)
8:00: Friends (YES!!!!!!!!! Not only is it not gone, it is in the other sweet spot. The 8:00 hour is usually when I've returned from whatever adventures I've had that day, and want something pleasant for background noise. It's been Rules of Engagement here for way too many months.)
10:00: 2 Broke Girls (this is a very acceptable exchange for Friends)
12:00 AM: Everybody Loves Raymond [alternate option: Raising Hope]
12:30-1:30: The Office (bumped half an hour back) [alternate option for 12:30-1: Community]
1:30: King of the Hill (cut to 1 episode), and then the comedies are over, same as before.
And with that, I've got exactly 13 hours to finish all my work and/or sleep, and about 5 hours after that to manage a shower and finish my double-sized Zoo post that I haven't even started before the finale airs. This should go well, right?
