I’ve been looking forward to this day for months – the fall return of The Office and 30 Rock. Because we’ve been so intentional about not watching TV for the last several weeks, our plans to sit in front of it for at least two hours tonight feel like a first meal after a 40-day fast. I honestly think I’m more excited about these season premieres tonight because I haven’t been entranced by mindless television in the past few weeks.

The always insightful and witty Mike Nelson brings light to the fact that we really haven’t missed anything by not succumbing to television’s wily ways.

But on the serious, if you don’t watch The Office and 30 Rock, you should.

Update: Severely disappointed to find out that 30 Rock will not show a season premiere until October 30. That’s a long, long time.
