Fall Television - What Will You Be Watching?

There is nothing that makes one feel like their life is void of real excitement like the start of Fall television.....but if you're like me, you're sort of stoked about it year after year!

This season, there aren't many new shows that have me making a DVR list and checking it twice, just some old favorites that I've missed during the summer months.

Let me just go ahead and own it - it is with deep bittersweetness that I anticpate the start of the One Tree Hill final season. Yes, I'm 34 and I watch more CW than CNN. Lucas will be back this season, and Deb. And surely some others {Dan Scott!}. Pigging backing off OTH, though, I've a slight anticpation for the new CW series, Hart of Dixie.

Southern cliches. Glamourous people. Empty drama like only the CW can provide. I'm willing to give it a try!

I am so happy that the Bravermans have returned to my world. Parenthood shares some of the Friday Night Lights writers, so if you loved how authentic the charachters were in that series, you'd love Parenthood, too, especially since it's not AT ALL full of forced parenting cliches like you'll find showcased on STFU Parents.

What could be like STFU Parents in 30-minute vignettes is Up All Night. Will it be funny to those of us non-parents? I don't know, but because in a preview I've seen Christina Applegates's character singing Rocky Top (around 3:34 in the video clip above) , I'm willing to give it a try...

On Sundays, I might watch Pan Am, though it could just be a Mad Men knock-off, which frankly, we kind of need, at least til March.
Knowing that my loyalties will likely lie, however, with The Good Wife, which returns on Sunday nights, the odds that I'll fly frequently with Pan Am are probably low.

What are you excited to see? What will you be watching?

I'm a reality TV junkie! Can't wait for Biggest Loser! Also, Modern Family and the Middle!

Who doesn't love Fall tv?? I know I do! I hadn't heard of Hart of Dixie, but I love Rachel Bilson. And like you said the CW can normally crank out shows with completely empty drama that just manage to get you hooked!

Love Modern Family and Cougar Town. Want to see if Charlie's Angels will be any good. I was a CW person when it was the WB, but had to give it up once TV time became limited. Watched Buffy and Charmed religiously. Still watch Mark Harmon on NCIS.

I could watch anything.
