We’ve had TGIF, Must See Thursday, and One Saturday Morning, but is the current best night of television. After exhaustive hours spent doing research for this study, I feel safe in declaring Tuesday the best night of television.
First, let’s look at the close runner-up and former champ: Thursday. It is still fighting a good fight, but where I used to not have enough DVR capabilities to get in everything I wanted and I couldn’t wait to get home and watch it all, I’m feeling a bit more ambivalent. I enjoy watching 30 Rock and The Vampire Diaries and I still rush home for Parks and Recreation, but this is not the “Must See” night that it used to be.
Dethroning the once great Thursday is the quick and scrappy Tuesday. It’s appeal may come from the fact that all of the shows I am loving are still fresh and only in their first or second season (with the exception of Happy Endings in its third). Let’s look at my personal lineup: Raising Hope, Hart of Dixie, Ben and Kate, New Girl, Happy Endings, Emily Owens, M.D., and The Mindy Project. All of these have something to get excited about and are showing great promise.
So what night of TV is getting you most excited? Are you Team Tuesday?
