I am way behind on my television watching. I catch a show here and there, but I’m behind on almost all of my favorite shows and it’s starting to stress me out! Yes, I’m so uptight that I get stressed about my leisure activities. I also have a habit of starting something new without finishing or catching up on something else I’ve started. And that is where I begin my tale: behind on television shows, yet I just began watching a brand new show…
I was blown away by this new series from the creator of Sex and the City, Darren Star, on TV Land: Younger. I absolutely love it. It speaks to me both because I love just about any show or movie that revolves around the publishing industry, but also because it’s one of the only sitcoms I’ve seen recently that feels new and “fresh.” I’m also a sucker for a good romantic-comedy whether it’s a show or a movie.

Hilary Duff is Not “So Yesterday”
Yes, I just said that. I’m THAT cheesy. I love that they brought Hilary Duff back though–she’s great in the show. I’m a big fan of reviving old stars. I also love Melissa & Joey with Melissa Joan Hart and Last Man Standing with Tim Allen. Now I just need Sarah Michelle Gellar to be featured in a good new show and my life will be complete.
Other Things to Get Excited About on TV Land.
TV Land was known more for playing old shows like Andy Griffith and Everybody Loves Raymond than for original programming. I’m particularly excited about the upcoming The Jim Gaffigan Show. Gaffigan’s new show focuses on a comedian raising five kids in New York City. If you haven’t seen his standup act yet, I highly recommend it.
Also coming to TV Land are the new series Teachers a comedy featuring the cast of the Katydids, a young female comedy improv group from Chicago. Another interesting looking new show is Impastor starring Michael Rosenbaum, which is about a ne’er-do-well who poses as a gay pastor in a small town. I’m kind of excited about TV Land appealing to a younger demographic. The ad spots for Younger feel like they belong on the CW! I hope the other new shows are as good as Younger has been so far and TV Land manages to churn out fun original programming the way Netflix has been!
If you haven’t already, check out Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. It’s a fun new comedy written by Tina Fey!
