fall tv 11

I can’t believe the new TV season is upon us! The quality of summer TV (White Collar, Burn Notice, Suits, Eureka) was pretty awesome so I haven’t felt deprived. Plus, last season was slightly underwhelming for me overall. Here’s hoping for a much improved new season. I’m planning to check out the following…

Gossip Girl
@ 8pm (CW)
Hart of Dixie @ 9pm (CW) – Rachel Bilson back on TV. Plus Scott Porter. I’m SO there.
Hawaii 5-0 @ 10pm (CBS) – I can’t resist. So much damn eye candy on this show.

@ 8pm (FOX) – I fully admit I’m watching solely for the musical performances. And Darren Criss.
Ringer @ 9pm (CW) – Please be good. I LOVE SMG.

@ TBD time (USA)
Modern Family @ 9pm (ABC)
Revenge @10pm (ABC) – I adore Emily Van Camp. I’m not too sure about the premise, though — EVC is the main character, Emily (lol), plotting revenge on wealthy Hamptons residents who destroyed her family. I enjoy primetime soaps but I wonder how this story is going to be sustained, particularly for multiple seasons.

Big Bang Theory
@ 8pm (CBS)
The Vampire Diaries @ 8pm (CW)
Grey’s Anatomy @ 9pm (ABC)
The Secret Circle @ 9pm (CW) – Totally up my alley. Kevin Williamson has not steered my wrong — see Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries.

I’m also considering Person of Interest @ 9pm (CBS) cause I like Michael Emerson. Maybe even Charlie’s Angels @ 8pm (ABC). These will be game-time decisions.

A Gifted Man
@ 8pm (CBS) – PATRICK WILSON. Enough said.
Chuck @ 8pm (NBC) – Last season. *sniff* I’m excited to see how this “little show that could” wraps up.
Nikita @ 8pm (CW)

Once Upon a Time
@ 8pm (ABC) – Fairytale drama? I’m intrigued.
The Good Wife @ 9pm (CBS) – I hope the new night works out. I love this show so much.
Dexter @ 9pm (Showtime) – Hmmm. We don’t have Showtime. Maybe we’ll wait until DVD or… ?

I stopped watching Supernatural last season (got bored) and I’m tempted to do the same with Bones as well. It’s a solid show but I’m not invested in the characters. I probably won’t watch the CSI franchise regularly either. Quality has declined and I’m tired of the formula.

Someday I’ll catch up with Parenthood and Fringe.

So… am I missing anything? What are you planning to watch? πŸ™‚
