CBS Fall 2015 Schedule

14 May

Alright, I’m here with the semi-timely update on the CBS schedule for this fall. CBS is always kind of wonky in the fall because they have Thursday Night Football. So things get a bit shifted in November. But let’s dive in. New shows in bold, shows making special appearances on my DVR are in red.

Sunday
7pm 60 Minutes
8pm Madam Secretary
9pm The Good Wife
10pm CSI: Cyber

Monday
8pm The Big Bang Theory
8:30pm Life In Pieces
8pm Supergirl (November)
9pm Scorpion
10pm NCIS: Los Angeles

Tuesday

9pm NCIS: New Orleans
10pm Limitless

Wednesday

Thursday

Friday

9pm Hawaii Five-0

Saturday

So overall we’ve got five new series orders. It looks like CBS is trying to find the right combo for its Thursday night comedy block. I personally loved The McCarthys and I’m sad it won’t be back. But we’ll see if these new offerings can bring the laughs. We all know I’ll be watching them; I’m a sucker for a sitcom. Speaking of which, The Odd Couple, Mike & Molly, and 2 Broke Girls will be coming back midseason. New series descriptions from CBS.com.

Supergirl

The long-awaited DC Comics adventure series about a young female superhero.

Limitless

A sci-fi thriller about an average guy who can suddenly access 100-percent of his brain capacity with the help of a mysterious pill. It’s based on the 2011 blockbuster.

Code Black

A heart-pounding medical series set in the nation’s busiest and most notorious ER.

Life In Pieces

An irreverent series about all the wonderfully hilarious and awkward moments that happen within a single family.

Angel From Hell

A single-camera comedy about a female dermatologist who comes face-to-face with her sassy guardian angel.

Things are pretty status quo over at the alphabet network, with only five new series orders. Here are some quick summaries of the new shows, from ABC.com. (We’ll see some additional new shows mid-season, but I’m not covering those yet because we’ll all forget about them and it will be like a fun new surprise again in January.)

Oil

Billy and Cody Lefever dream of a new life and move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history. They’re soon pitted against a ruthless tycoon who forces them to put everything on the line, including their marriage.

Of Kings and Prophets

An epic Biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny.

The Muppets

The Muppets return to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires.

Quantico

A diverse group of recruits has arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

Dr. Ken

Doctor turned actor/comedian Ken Jeong plays Dr. Ken, a brilliant physician with no bedside manner. He is always trying to be a good doctor, as well as a good husband and dad to his two kids. Luckily, his therapist wife Allison is just the right partner to keep things sane.

NBC Fall 2015 Schedule

12 May

Upfronts are this week, and I’m a little late to the party. Let’s not talk about what a terrible and timely blogger I am, m’kay? And while we’re not talking about things, let’s not talk about how I totally fell down on the job with my television recaps. There’s always next season, right?

At any rate, let’s jump in a little late with the NBC fall schedule. New shows are in bold, shows that will be on my DVR are in red.

Blindspot

A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there.

Heartbreaker

Based on the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, this unique character-driven medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere, an outspoken, world-renowned heart transplant surgeon, one of the few women in her field.

Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris

Five-time Emmy Award winner Neil Patrick Harris is coming to NBC on a new primetime variety series based on the U.K.’s hugely popular “Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.”

Heroes Reborn

The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue this fall as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept.

The Player

From the executive producers of The Blacklist and starring Wesley Snipes and Philip Winchester comes an action-packed Las Vegas thriller about a former military operative turned security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out.

People are Talking

If you can think it, they will say it. From the producer of Ride Along and the director of How I Met Your Mother comes this unabashed new comedy about two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends.

Turn a Trunk into a Storage Ottoman

11 May

I have this great trunk that I’ve used as a coffee table for a bunch of years, but the hard edge hurts my leg when I put my feet up. I wanted something cushioned, but I didn’t want to lose the height or storage, so I turned my trunk into a storage ottoman!

This was so simple that I’m kicking myself for not doing it years ago. Here’s what you’ll need:

Fabric – I used this gray faux bois, no matter what pattern you settle on you’ll want to use duck or an indoor outdoor fabric
King Size Pillow
E6000
Scissors

Cut a strip of fabric that’s a little wider than your trunk, and a little longer than you would need to loop it around the lid. Because that’s what you’re doing, you’re just looping it around the lid so you can still use it as a trunk.

Then create a sleeve for your pillow. Do this by cutting another piece of fabric that’s longer and wider than your trunk lid. Use E6000 to attach the long sides, then slide in your pillow.

Now the looping part! Wrap your fabric pillow contraption around the trunk lid, and use safety pins to secure it. Cut slits for the trunk hinges and add safety pins under the hinges to keep the fabric in place. Like this:

And that’s it! See, I told you it was easy. In theory, you could use a sewing machine for this, but I was too lazy to drag mine out. Here’s what the side looks like. If I hadn’t cut the slits for the hinges, the material would bunch away from the back edge when the lid was closed.

And here’s Teddy, who kept crawling all over me while I was taking these pictures.

So there you have it – a trunk turned storage ottoman! Easy peasy. Bonus: you can see my shadow in most of these pictures because I didn’t get around to doing this until Sunday night, so the lighting was weird and dark.

Here’s a view of the new ottoman where it lives, right next to my treadmill desk. Evidently I’m really into gray faux bois right now. And The Big Bang Theory.

Weekly Round Up – 5/9/15

9 May

Hey-o! I hope you all had a great week! It’s been cold here in LA, and I am so not okay with that. Here’s some cool stuff I found this week.

Preggoland

If you’re looking for a mom movie with a twist, check out Preggoland. When a 35 year old woman realizes that all of her friends are growing up and having babies, she decides to fake her own pregnancy. You can check out the trailer below, and find Preggoland on iTunes.

One Good Life

I’m giving away a copy of the new book, One Good Life! You should enter immediately because the giveaway ends on Tuesday. Plus, your chances are really good. And it’s a terrific book. So go do that.

Draper James

Y’all have got to check out Draper James. It’s a new brand from Reese Witherspoon featuring clothes, accessories, and home decor with a Southern inspired grace and style. And it’s all so wonderful. I’m currently obsessed with the “Totes Y’all” tote bag pictured above.

Treadmill Desk

I know, I know, I usually don’t share any of my own links, let alone two in one round up. But I’m really proud of this desk and I’m still basking in my own cleverness. So check it out, and I promise to stop bugging you about it.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I saved the best for last, so I could wish my mama a very happy Mother’s Day. I don’t get to be with my mama this year (I’m usually not with her on Mother’s Day) but she’s the very best mama in the whole wide world and I love her so much.
