Lets call this what it is: the older, more mature version of last season's guide, "Netflix and Cocktails". Anyone that watches a lot of TV (I'm looking at you, millennials) knows that Fall TV is like the Oscars of Award season; it's the best. I thought it would be fun to take a little break from my regular fashion and beauty posts and share what I'm watching on TV right now (mainly because this lineup is too good to keep to myself).
Most of these have already premiered so, you might need to clear out your weekend to catch up. But, if curling up on the couch with a cold glass of wine, a mountain of blankets, and a homemade snack to binge-watch Fall TV doesn't sound like the perfect weekend to you, well quite frankly, I'm not sure that we can be friends anyway (just kidding... but, really). Enjoy, babes!
