This week, Upfronts will completely dominate the list. Why wouldn’t it? After last season’s disastrous freshman run, they need to show something fresh. Also, another book will make an appearance and a talk show in it’s final days (you know which I’m talking about.) Anyhow, here’s the list!1. Television Upfronts Coming after an extremely disappointing television season, the networks have a lot to prove, especially NBC. The peacock network has already unveiled it’s fall schedule, and Fox is presenting their upfront right this moment. More Upfronts will go on this week, and I’ll have full coverage right here. 2. The Oprah Winfrey Show With the show in its penultimate week, Oprah will go all out in trying to please viewers in the final days of the show. This week, will be pretty low-key, but next week will be huge, and you’ll have to tune in for that. 3. LA Noire This may become one of the greatest video games of all time, and the critics universally agree: this game is a masterpiece. One critic calls LA Noire “A defining moment in video games on this generation,” and the glowing reviews don’t stop there. It seems that Rockstar Games can do no wrong, and I have absolutely no problem with that. 4. A Visit From the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan A gripping new novel by veteran author Jennifer Egan, A Visit From the Goon Squad tells the story about a group of people growing through different times surrounding the music world. Reading the book is a challenge, but I cannot put this book down at times. It’s quirky, but serious; joyous, and gritty, and I can’t wait to finish it. 5. Friday Night Lights The catch phrase “Julie Taylor is a whore” has been stuck in my head since I last saw the episode on Friday, and I can’t wait to watch next weeks episode. Julie tells Tami what happened and the Taylors aren’t willing to be sympathetic, and they’re pissed. Drama is peaking week-after-week, and it just keeps getting better. That’s a wrap! As I’ve mentioned before, come back here often for TV upfront coverage, including Fox’s schedule that has been released today. Come back next week for a fresh, finale-filled Most Wanted List!
