Is it wrong to get so excited about new TV shows?

As fall sweeps in and cools things down, that means things heat up in TV Land. Every year I forget that my favorite shows start again at the same time, and I get excited about watching new episodes of the sitcoms “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Up All Night.”
Growing up, my family liked to watch the reality shows “Survivor” and “Amazing Race” (we still call each other afterwards to talk about what happened). After all these years, I am hooked, and have added “Project Runway” and “Top Chef” to the list; I think they’re entertaining shows.
I do have an issue with all the channels saving their best programs for Wednesday and Sunday nights. (What would we do without DVR?) We always watch Sunday Night HBO — “Boardwalk Empire” and “Treme” just kicked off new seasons, and they are so well done — but now with AMC’s “Walking Dead” starting soon, it’s going to be hard to decide what to watch first.
I guess I should think of ways to be more productive like by reading or exercising, but after the baby is put to bed and I am exhausted from a long day, it feels wonderful to just curl up on the couch with my husband, relax and watch our stories together.
