The theme of this week's television offerings is, without a doubt, goodbyes. (Besides a hello to the new season of "The Bachelorette," which Amelia is liveblogging starting at 9 p.m. EST.)

I just realized that it's been more than two months since I've gone to see a movie. Why? Because why pay $10+ to sit in a freezing theater when I can park it on the couch and watch all the amazingness that is my television. This week, like all weeks this month, I am super…

It's really beautiful outside, yet this doesn't make me want to leave the house to frolic in the sun. I think it's because I'm depressed and it just seems like nature is laughing at me.

Spring has sprung (kinda) but just because it's nice out doesn't mean you'll be able to pry me from my couch. There is way too much going on with my real friends ... the ones in the TV. This week, we have the season finales of "Kell on Earth" and "Greek," the season premieres of…

The Olympics are dunzo, which means ... back to your regularly scheduled programs! This week is a big one. We don't even have to tell you to watch the season finale of "The Bachelor" tonight, to see if Jake goes for mean girl Vienna or snooze-fest Tenley. We also probably don't have to mention that…

Forget the Super Bowl. There's something even bigger happening on television this week—the season premiere of "Lost." I repeat, "LOST" IS BACK!

This is a week of big ol' mega-casts, as I like to call them. Perhaps the biggest, taking over all the major networks: Barack Obama's State of the Union address, which will be going down at 9 p.m. (EST) on Wednesday. Then, on Saturday, TLC brings you the Miss America Pageant at 8 p.m. (EST)—I'll…
