Fall Means Returning TV Shows!

by Leann

Even though on the Texas Gulf Coast, September means summer goes on, unabated and we watch the weather for tropical storms and hurricanes, it also means shows I've missed return and new shows I might like are premiering.

I miss Ellen a lot and wish her daytime show went further into summer. I need a good laugh everyday, and she delivers. Laughing, they say, is as good for you as exercise. Since I am limited as far as exercise, I consider her show "doctor's orders!" (Me being the doctor, of course.) I am a crime show junkie and CBS has always given me plenty to watch. Are any of you looking forward to Ted Danson bringing something extra to CSI this season? I sure am. Loved him in Damages.

A late entry on ABC last year was Body of Proof. ABC tends to cancel every show I enjoy, so I am glad this one will be coming back. They did keep Castle, so I can't complain too much. Castle may be short on facts as far as crime solving and police work, but it's a very fun show with good chemistry between all the actors. As for new shows, I'm intrigued by Person of Interest and Unforgettable.

I have more favorites, NCIS and Criminal Minds among them, but let's here from you. What shows are you looking forward to this fall?

I'm a confirmed Gleek! Can't wait for the new season of Glee. Also looking forward to the next three episodes of the BBC's Sherlock (although I guess those will air early in 2012). I don't really watch much TV (too busy reading!), so that's about it.

My favorite show is Desperate Housewives. This is the last season :(

Don't watch much tv, but my boyfriend loves all those crime series as well.

Oh, the PBS Sherlock is worth waiting for! I lOVED it! I've watched a little Glee, never did watch Desperate Housewives. Not enough CRIME!! :-)

Sue said...

Love the crime series There is one on USA I think called Fairly Legal that we watch to. There are a few comedies I'll check out this year...The new Tim Allen one, the one with Christina Applegate, and Two Broke girls I think it is. Also a few reality shows, ok one, Survivior and of course Grey's Anatomy. But a lot will have to be dvr'd so if they overlap I can watch all of them and I'll have my kindle for commercials.

I fell in love with Blue Bloods last season so I cannot wait for that. And of course Castle, how can you not love a crime show where the main character is a mystery writer? But my favorite returning show is Survivor. I also cant wait for The Amazing Race.
I dont watch as much tv since I got rid of my DVR (had to, i was addicted).

I love September for bringing back my shows: Hawaii Five-O, Body of Proof, The Middle, The Mentalist, Bones, Castle, CSI: NY, Rules of Engagement, Raising Hope, Criminal Minds, Parenthood, and The Good Wife.

New shows that looks interesting to me are: Unforgettable and Person of Interest.

I'm a Castle fan too; I think it's the dynamic between Castle and his very funny family, and between him and the cops. I like Blue Bloods too, NCIS, Bones and others, but always the shows with the best characters and their relationships.

Bones, Big Bang Theory, Castle, Hawaii Five-O, GLEE (*squeeee*) (watching season one on DVD now...), NCIS, Supernatural

I am curious about the new shows:
Terra Nova, Prime Suspect, Grimm, Once Upon a Time.

I know there will be other shows on TNT and USA and SyFy to look forward to.

I do not enjoy tv in the summer season. I don't like those reality shows where people make fools of themselves. ugh! More time to read!
I agree with many of Dru's choices. I may try a few of the new shows but my favorites come first. Glee, Bones & Castle. I even DVR them so I won't miss an episode.

Suzanne said...

My favorites are Criminal Minds, Big Bang Theory and Leverage. I also catch Rules of Engagement when I remember it is on. Haven't ever watched reality tv at all so I don't know about any of those shows. I'm curious about Once Upon a Time but not really sure how that one will be.

USA Network has had wonderful summer shows such as White Collar, Covert Affairs, Royal Pains, Necessary Roughness, and Suits so if you don't like reality shows, give these shows a try. They should also have mid winter shows.
This fall I am looking forward to the return of NCIS, Castle, Harry's Law, Parenthood, the Good Wife, and Blue Bloods.

I'm looking forward to Criminal Minds, L&O SVU, CSI New York and Miami, and the new show,"Person of Interest"
(Michael Emerson AND Jim Cavizel? Yes, please.)
It's because they're both great actors...yeah, that's it. ;)
