HALEY RAMM, ITALIA RICCI

Chasing Life has quickly become one of my weekly go to shows and as usual ABC Family has yanked a program off the air with a ridiculously long two and three month breaks. The pauses aren’t as bad now thanks to their 25 Days of Christmas promotion that features holiday themed episodes of all our favorite programs.

TERI POLO, SHERRI SAUM

Recently, I discovered ABC Family’s The Fosters on Netflix and immediately fell in love with the multi-cultural family drama about an interracial lesbian couple’s struggles raising a large family of adopted kids.  It has become one of my new obsessions. After a drama filled mid-season cliffhanger, the show returns this week, as part of ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas promotion, with its very first Christmas Episode.

Up until now the show has remained surprisingly light considering its serious topic, but I suspect things will go dark when it comes back. Two more episodes until it goes away until the winter. Have I said recently how much I HATE how ABC Family’s schedules shows? Chasing Life airs Tuesday nights on ABC Family.
