Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Fall TV Edition

As the temperatures start to drop, that marks the beginning of Fall TV season. This used to be an exciting time of year for me – all these new shows to try – but as networks have started debuting shows throughout the year and the kill rate for new shows rapidly increased, I’ve kind of lost interest. As of now, I think the only new show that I’m even going to try is HBO’s The Deuce. The scuttlebutt about the new shows debuting this Fall has been particularly quiet, which leads me to believe that TV critics don’t have a ton of faith in this year’s crop of offerings. I’m not even that excited about some returning shows that I watch. I think I’ve become TV jaded.

The good news is that my lack of interest in Fall TV means I have more time to do other things, like focus on the blog and this week’s pop culture roundup. So while you figure out what new shows to take a chance on, check out the previous week in pop with today’s edition of the roundup.
