Stylish Shows for the Fall Season

Besides the fashions that only fall can bring, new TV lineups are the second best thing that happens during this time of year. Although I haven’t been watching much TV lately, this past weekend I found myself glued to the tube watching all of last season’s Gossip Girl as if I were an Upper East Side rich teenage girl with a Sidekick in hand! There’s something about that show that is simply addictive. Perhaps, it’s the fashion and constant pop culture references. Whatever it is that makes it a must-see show, I am now hooked and can’t wait until next week when it returns for a second season.

Although I wish there were more shows that featured BGs and guys in the lineup, I am looking forward to watching Tyra’s antics on her popular reality series, America’s Next Top Model; Vivica Fox's new style competition show, Glam God; fashion journalism reality show Stylista; The Game; as well as the new season of Making the Band, which started last week.

Speaking of TV, wasn't Michelle Obama's speech last night at the DNC outstanding?!

Anyway, what are you planning on watching this upcoming fall TV season?


Gossip Girl on The CW


America's Next Top Model Cycle 11 on The CW


Glam God with Vivica A. Fox on VH1


Stylista on The CW


Making the Band Season 4 on MTV


The Game on The CW

I don't watch a lot of tv. However, when I do get a chance to turn on the tube I find myself watching MSNBC,CNN and HDTV. I'm big on business and I like to know what's going on in the world around me; I also enjoy looking at different homes and new design ideas! BGG I also agree with you, we NEED more brown faces on tv! Blessings!

Dominican Enigma said...

I agre with soul. I really don't watch a lot of tv anymore. I remember when I was young, the shows were so much better. things have changed big time.

B said...

I don't really watch newer sshows on TV. My DVR stays on Martin, Living Single and A Different World. But I love love love Run's House. We definitely need more POSITIVE brown people on TV. I'm off to your hometown, BGG. Have a beautiful Tuesday!

Husband has ESPN on all televisions at all times. I shut up about sports 24/7, he shuts up in Sephora and Nordies.

Gossip girl and one tree hill!! That stylistas looks intersting tho

antithesis said...

i wish more of my favorite shows featured BGs. i like the hills, the office, and 30 rock. i pretty much watch those weekly and just catch random shows in-between. i'll probably check out some of the ones you listed.

Wes said...

I agree w/ Soul too, I never seem to have time to sit down and actually WATCH TV.. I might have it on while I'm blogging, but I usually have music playing. I can't even keep up- I don't even know what shows are on anymore!! I'll have something on my DVR for months before I get to watch it.

I hardly ever turn on the TV anymore, but after hearing everyone talk about Gossip Girl, I watched the entire season online a few weeks ago. Now, I'm hooked. I will definitely be in front of the TV on September 1st.

I'll have to check out Stylista too. An editorial position at Elle and a clothing allowance? That's my dream!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Isn't DVR the best invention in YEARS!!!!??

I don't know what I'd do without it. I actually have Oprah episodes on there from 2006 that I still haven't watched! LOL

Plus, I've saved my favorite, "A Different World," episodes on it so I can watch them whenever I want. The only problem is that I'm always running out of space!

@B - Love your new pic! :-)

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

hmmmm, you know how i lurve my reality tv, so i'll be down with ANTM, (i tired glam god, but it has to grow on me some more), Real Housewives of Atlanta, among others i'm sure.

K-Bear said...

BGG, There is nothing in particular that I look forward to watching, however, I always end up hooked to something no matter how ridiculous it might be! I hope your shows are all you want them to be. I did see Michelle last night and I was totally impressed and completely proud to be a BG! When she was done and just let out a long and satisfying sigh!

Don said...

There isn't really anything that I look forward to watching this fall. There's nothing that comes after The Wire and Soul Food TV series have ended. LOL.

Gotta Let it Out said...

I can't wait for the new episodes of The Game! I ♥ that show... it's probably the only thing I watch on TV... oh and Jon and Kate Plus 8... but that's a whole other story.

LOL!!!!

Gotta Let it Out said...

Oh and Mrs. Obama is so damn fierce... could it be we're gonna have a brown first lady? I ♥ her hard!

Brown Girl said...

@B - Have a blast in Chicago!!

@PBW - Hilarious. My husband watches sports 24/7 too.

@Antithesis - I used to like the Hills too.

@Jaimie - I've never seen One Tree Hill.

@ Wes - DVR is the BEST!

@Melissa - I can't wait for Stylista!

@K-Bear - I LOVE MICHELLE and the ENTIRE OBAMA CREW!!!

@Gotta Let it Out - HOW COULD I FORGET THE GAME!!! That's one of my absolute favorites. I love it so much that I need to post a photo to go along with this post! LOL

@Don - Oh yeah, Soul Food was the BEST! Never watched The Wire though.

Brown Girl said...

@DE - Shows were better back in the day!

@Soul - We definitely need more BGs on TV!

Product Junkie Diva said...

I really like the Game so I know I will be watching that. i may also catch a little making the band4. Like B I too love A different world and oh don't let me catch a repeat of living single or the Cosby show :-)

Product Junkie Diva said...

oh yes and real housewives of ATl will be filled with BGs this season so I will be watching!

Ondo Lady said...

Wow, so many shows so little time. Still one consolation about summer coming to an end is welcoming all the fantastic new shows to the fold.

mimieyes said...

Don't really watch that much T.V, but you have raised my curiosity.
I hope it doesn't kill the cat! HA

i've so fallen off of my regular tv channels...i'm trying really hard to watch project runway and making the band though

Anonymous said...

Anticipating too many shows to count! Survivor is my fave, Heroes, ANTM, House, My name is Earl, Last season of ER, Glam God, The Office, Idol, the list goes on and on...

T said...

The cable guys will be here mid-September right before the start of the regular NFL season. That's the only TV I must watch. I'll probably get hooked on ANTM too, but if Tyra gets to screaming at people, Iaintgunbeabultadoit!

that guy said...

i'll check out the game. it's a great show!!!

Kwana said...

BG You know I loved Michelle Obama last night at the DNC. She had me at Hello! I'll be all over reality TV this fall. I can't wait to check out Vivica Fox also Ugly Betty and Lipstick Jungle.

faith said...

Ondo Lady said...

Boats Sail On The Rivers

(1)

Boats sail on the rivers,

And ships sail on the seas;

But clouds that sail across the sky,

Are prettier far than these.

(2)

There are bridges on the rivers,

As pretty as you please;

But the bow that bridges heaven,

And overtops the trees,

And builds a road from earth to sky,

Is prettier far than these.

Ashley-Nicole said...

I'm interested in what The Game and Stylista are going to be like. (and the new 90210)!

Ananda said...

the game, ugly betty (i love vanessa williams' style), brothers and sisters, lipstick jungle (if they bring it back), the practice, men in trees (if they bring it back), and maybe take a few peaks at grey's anatomy. i don't have tv so i watch them online after they have aired. this way i can see them when i want to.

I like the outfits of Chloe Sullivan and Lois Lane on Smallville. And One Tree Hill has some nice clothes too, especially Peyton and Brooke.
