Clearly I missed a show on my Girly Fall TV list! Arrow premiered last week on The CW, to amazing ratings, and I can see why: Stephen Amell. And his abs. And pecs. And his blue eyes. And his 5 o’clock shadow. And his dimples. I don’t even know or care what this show is about, but it needs to be added to my DVR.
But in case you do care what it’s about, it’s an adaptation of the DC Comics character, Green Arrow. Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen, an eccentric billionaire who was presumed dead for five years after a violent shipwreck. After he was discovered alive on a deserted island, he returns home to Starling City, desperate to make amends with the people he hurt as a teenager. By day he plays the part of the wealthy, careless playboy he once was. By night, he’s a superhero, using his new lethal skills to right the wrongs of his family and fight the war on crime.
Forget all of that. This is all you need to know: HOLY. FREAKING. HOT.
BATMAN. GREEN ARROW. I want to thank The CW for giving us lots of photos of Stephen exercising and doing physical labor…shirtless. But he’s hot, even when he’s fully clothed, looking like a sexy, leather-clad Robin Hood in his tight, black hoodie.
And in case you’re confused, let me break down his hotness for you in this chart:
So is anyone watching this show? It is on Wednesday’s, as in TONIGHT, at 8/7c on The CW, which just proves that hump day hotties actually exist!

Hard to believe that we’re halfway into October and this is the last of the girly Fall TV posts! Emily Owens, M.D. is a new medical dramedy on The CW. The LA Times said it’s like a cross between New Girl and Grey’s Anatomy. I gave up on Grey’s a long time ago, so I do have a soapy-doctor-themed-series void to fill.
From what I can tell, this is more like high school meets hospital, proving that you never really get past the petty crap you think you left behind as a teenager. Great. Emily Owens (played by Meryl Steep’s lookalike daughter Mamie Gummer) is a recent medical school graduate starting her first internship at Denver Memorial Hospital, where she runs into her med-school crush, Will Collins (hottie Justin Hartley).
Emily tries to leave behind her nerdy and klutzy teenage self for a bright, new future as a doctor. But on her first day at work she realizes the cliques from high school still exist in the “real world.” The jocks are orthopedic surgeons, the mean girls are in plastics, the girl-next-door-types are in OB, the true geeks are neurologists, the stoners are in anesthesia, the rebels are in the ER…and the competition is fierce.

The girly Fall TV list is winding down. Only one more post to go. So even though Beauty and the Beast is getting less than stellar reviews, I think I’ll still tune in for the premiere. It has the perk of being on right after The Vampire Diaries, and we all know I’ll be watching that. (Although that time slot didn’t help The Secret Circle…)
BatB is actually a remake of the 80′s version, which I remember but didn’t really watch. Although apparently this version is less sci-fi, fantasy, and big 80′s hair and more political, military, brooding hottie with an unfortunate scar and a temper. I love TWoP’s take on it: “A tale as old as time. Pretty young woman is nearly killed, a beastly guy saves her life. Years later she becomes a cop, they discover each other and how he lives off the grid because of his “disfigurement” and whatnot, and sparks fly. You’d be better off watching the Disney cartoon. Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth had better chemistry than these two.” Ouch.

Four months ago I spent the night of my birthday watching the season finale of The Vampire Diaries. With cupcakes. Because that’s what’s important. So obviously I’m beyond excited about its return tomorrow night. I know I watch a lot of TV but VD is still, by far, my fave show. Well, except for Downton Abbey. And Homeland…
There has been a lot of discussion over the hotness of Ian Somerhalder on this blog. And a little bit about Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley. But seriously, there is so much pretty on this show, I think it’s time to recognize all of the hotness. And in case you don’t make it to the end of this post, anyone else excited for Season 4 of The Vampire Dairies?
Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert
I have a MAJOR girl crush on Nina Dobrev. I like her so much that I’m not even mad at her for getting to make out with Ian Somerhalder, like, whenever she wants. She is absolutely stunning. And I’m looking forward to a vampire Elena!

ABC is going country, y’all. Of all the new Fall TV shows, Nashville is the one I’m most excited about. And it’s part of overall epic girly week of TV, marking the return of my beloved Vampire Diaries, followed by the premiere of Beauty and the Beast.
Nashville stars Connie Britton as Rayna James, a country music legend with a 20 year career. (BTW, not only can Britton actually sing, but she also has the required big, fabulous hair of a country star.) She’s finding herself being pushed out of her label and competing with Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), a talented, sassy, somewhat bitchy newcomer with issues, who’s pop-country hits are taking over the charts.

What’s weird is that with the amount of TV I watch, there is nothing that I watch on Friday. Friday nights are usually reserved for unwinding with a glass of wine on the couch and catching up on TV from the week, and on a good night, I’ll actually manage to stay up past 9.
But there is a new show that could break the Friday night dry spell: Made in Jersey. From what I can tell, it’s 70 percent Legally Blonde (LOVE), 20 percent My Cousin Vinny (YES!), eight percent Working Girl (OK) and like 2 percent The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Eh). But, it’s the 70 percent Legally Blonde that has me adding it to my DVR!

Tuesday nights are about to get seriously girly. And seriously fabulous. After the season premiere of New Girl (so excited!), stay tuned for The Mindy Project. I’m a fan of Mindy Kaling from The Office (both her acting and her writing), and she not only stars in The Mindy Project, she also created it, writes it and produces it.
I already feel like I’m going to love this one. I have to! I’m a fan of her style of comedy, especially lines like this: “Maybe I won’t get married, you know. Maybe I’ll do one of those Eat, Pray, Love things. Ugh, no. I don’t want to pray. Forget it. I’ll just die alone.” From what I can tell, this show is all Mindy, so I’m sure you have to be a fan of hers, and her humor, to like this one. But I love that in real life she’s a girly girl who likes to shop, and isn’t afraid to admit she’s obsessed with romantic comedies. Just like her character in the show. And just like me!

Hey Gleeks! Who’s excited about the new season of Glee? It started last week and I’m happy it’s back! It was nice to see some fresh new faces at McKinley and NYADA, especially two new hotties: Brody (Dean Geyer) and Jake (Jacob Artist). And I kind of loved Kate Hudson (that girl has some good genes) as the bitchy, boozy dance teacher, but I do miss her less-bitchy-How-to-Lose-a-Guy-in-10-Days version. Plus the glee kids covered Call Me Maybe, so overall, it was a total win.
Back to the hotties. We first meet Brody Weston in the coed bathroom where he’s singing in the shower and introduces himself Rachel wearing only a towel. (Tried to get a pic of that but no luck, sorry!) Brody is a junior who’s majoring in musical theater, so he has talent (and muscles), and he makes sure to let Rachel know he’s straight, despite his 3am primping routine!

How is it Fall TV season already? Some of my faves from last year are returning for a second season (like New Girl, Hart of Dixie, Once Upon a Time) and now it’s time for a new crop of shows. First up on my list (going in chronological order): Partners.
From what I can tell, if you liked Will & Grace, you’ll like Partners. (In fact, it’s from the same creators.) The only sucky thing is that it’s getting some not-so-great reviews. But so did Pan Am and I loved that one. Actually, I might be the only person that is pissed about it being cancelled! But I liked Will & Grace, so I’ll give this one a shot! At the very least, it has some eye candy in the form of Brandon Routh.

Ashley: First, thanks for spending my birthday watching the season finale of The Vampire Diaries with me. I know it’s not the most exciting celebration, but you know…priorities. After all the new TV shows we were excited about, this show is still my fave. (Although now I think Downton Abbey is a contender.) We checked in during the season, so should we share our thoughts on the
Sara: I am a little confused as to what is going on. There are so many ways this whole thing could go! I feel like overall the Fall TV season was a rip off this year. It was 3 episodes all new, a month of reruns, 2 new, another rerun. And now we have to wait until Sept!! It’s just not right.
Ashley: Yeah it’s always hard saying goodbye to my vamps. But now I can try to catch up on my DVR. I still have the last four episodes of Pretty Little Liars!! So, back to VD…Bonnie helped Klaus take over Tyler’s body so that his bloodline, including the Salvatores, could live. So does that mean Tyler is dead? I don’t know if I can handle a Tyler-looking-Klaus-talking combo. I feel like Bonnie is gonna be a bit evil next season. And is Alaric officially dead? Even though he became a major ass, it makes me sad…he was one of my faves. Oh, and it was nice to see Jenna again in the flashbacks!
