What a Week for TV.

This week was a great week for TV, so I'm linking up with Neely and Meagan for Boob Tube Babble today!

Boob Tube Babble

First, and most importantly, Derek Jeter got his 3,000th hit last Saturday!

Then, Monday night was, of course, the Bachelorette.  I do not understand what Ashley sees in Ames.  It drives me a little crazy that he's still around.  Dude wore BRIGHT PINK pants on their date.  What????  (ps-- this is the only pic I could find, but you can definitely see the highlighter colored pants...)

Poor Ryan really had his bubble burst by Ashley when she dumped him, but who can blame her.  He's nuts. (Side note-- what's with all the pink this week??)

Another side note: Am I the only one that thinks Ryan is channeling Parker from Friends??  Click! 

And then yesterday, the Emmy nominations were announced!  I was beyond thrilled to see nominations for one of my favorite shows, Justified.  It was nominated for Best Drama, plus Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins each received individual nominations.  So stoked for them!!

Not to mention the long-deserved nominations for Friday Night Lights (including Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton).  Better late than never!

But, there was a GLARING oversight.  No Neil Patrick Harris!!  What the heck, Emmy voters?  Didn't you watch How I Met Your Mother this season??  Granted, it wasn't the best season for the show, but NPH was gold!

ps-- "Dad, look how fast I can run!" and "Dad, you're not looking!" are my favorite lines of this season.  Cracks me up every time.


  1. I haven't watched the Bachelor or the Bachelorette since Travis, and that was just because he was from TN.

    HIMYM never fails to crack me up. I love Marshall. How could anyone not though? :D

    Happy Friday!!

    -Many Smiles!

  2. I never noticed the Parker/Ryan connection but now i see it bright and clear! Haha thats great!

  3. OMG, yes!!! I can TOTALLY see the Ryan/Parker channeling!!! As soon as I read it, I thought "YES!!! So true!" I'm unbelievably glad she sent Ryan home. And I'm a little sad she sent Lucas home. He was a REALLY good guy. Ames is on my weird, but likeable list.

  4. um, okay.... so I don't watch any one of those shows. Have I been living under a rock??

  5. NPH has been nominated for HIMYM several times. I think he knows how amazing he is! I will have to check out Justified and Meg O has been living under a rock! Thanks for linking up!

  6. You know how I feel about NPH and this debacle! Also I love Justified! And yes he does chanel Parker!

  7. Super happy to see a sports shout-out on the babble! :) I went with the women's world cup.

    Ryan is nuts on Bach. He seems so sweet and sincere, but he's just too... desperate maybe?

  8. I am a HUGE Yankees fan!!! I recored the inninng he was up!!! It was so amazing to see it. Never going to erase it =)

  9. I feel sad that you didn't do a full on Bachelorette recap. Alas, I will get over it and just be happy that you mentioned what a weirdo Ames is!
