'Turnoff Week' has arrived: Let's all commit to watching three new shows!

Posted on


Image Credit: PM Images/Iconica/Getty ImagesTurnoff Week has arrived, and I do not approve. There, I said it. In fact, I’m celebrating the exact opposite: Turn-on Week! Um…that doesn’t sound right. But you know what I mean. In the polar opposite spirit of Turnoff Week — which encourages folks to (gasp) shut off their TVs from now through Sunday — I’m going to sample three shows that aren’t on my regular weekly lineup: ABC’s The Middle, Showtime’s Nurse Jackie, and FX’s Justified. Because even though my DVR is more crowded than a European airport, I know deep in my Idol-obsessed heart that I simply don’t watch enough television. And neither do you. So tell me, which three shows will you commit to testing out during Turnoff Week? Sound off in the comments below!
