1. James Foley - What a courageous man who stood for truth, honor, freedom, and for this country. Even in the face of evil.
2. Little League World Series - This tournament was flat out amazing. With multiple (and very important) storylines, great play, and tremendous sportsmanship, this year's edition was riveting television all the time.
3. Suits - It's been given a "hit" in the "up" section in the past and it deserves it again. The show closed another strong season this summer which exhibited awesome screenwriting, fantastic storylines, and great acting. Not to mention, tremendous characters. Who can hate Harvey Spector?
1. ISIS - A common "down" as of late, someone needs to stop this evil - and fast.
2. Earthquakes - Between the rumble that was out West in San Francisco that is more significant than originally thought, and the one that now has hit Peru, further devastation and destruction has been added to a world already in chaos.
3. VMAs - Wow. The wife DVR'ed it to sift through the performances and what we ended up watching was rough. MTV has really fallen in covering music. Well, fallen, period. The building looked a bit empty, and it seemed pretty lame with only a few select "stars", all whom were nominated for every award. Blah.
