The TV Blog Coalition - When The Olympics Took Over TV

I've been traveling so much this summer that it has sort of passed by in a blur. I was also excited by some of the Summer TV cable shows (My Boys, Burn Notice, Mad Men, Project Runway) but I've been sort of playing catch up all summer and didn't even realize My Boys already ended (probably to avoid The Olympics). Seriously, they end it on THAT cliffhanger??? ARGH. I WANT MORE! Plus So You Think You Can Dance is already over too (again, to avoid The Olympics) so now I'm going through Cat Deeley withdrawal. Let's hope SYTYCD: Canada is good (most people don't seem to like the host but word is it's a strong Top 20 and if Project Runway Canada and most seasons of Canadian Idol showed, we've got some talent up here).

Meanwhile, I swore I wouldn't watch The Olympics but I got sucked right back in after seeing the rock hard bodies. I'm such the sucker. Plus, what else is there to watch? (At least Greek is starting up again early on Tues. August 26th at 9pm! and then everything else will start reappearing throughout September) Here's what the other TV bloggers were talking about this week:
