Fall 2012 Network TV Preview

Posted by under *mixed, Television | Join The Discussion |

Fall premiere time is usually my favorite time of year, but this season I was a little underwhelmed by the new crop of shows. However, I agreed to check out a bunch of pilots so I could report back my thoughts. I was surprised how much I liked a few of these shows. I’m also quite surprised that a few of these are still around—I heard a rumor that Fox is holding off whacking the Mob Doctor until the World Series are over.

Since the fall season started a month ago reviews & ratings for all of these shows are available, so we have a general idea of what shows are performing and what shows are not. In my opinion NBC is one of the big winners this fall season as it looks like its comedy block is performing –NBC shows are performing so well in fact, that they are cutting shows slated as midseason replacements (Bryan Fuller’s Mockingbird Lane is now going to be a one episode special and the network recently cancelled Dane Cook’s Next Caller BEFORE it even aired). Anyhoo, I would say overall this crop of shows is stronger than I first thought, although I don’t think there is anything here that I would miss terribly if it went away (though I’m hoping after a few episodes I will be fully devoted to Nashville)… Read on for my reviews!

Summer is over and the kiddies are back in school, which means the Fall television season is finally upon us. This year there are over 20 new shows debuting. That’s a lot to wade through, but don’t worry I have watched the previews for all of these new shows and can offer my expert couch potato opinion. Additionally, I have created charts to go along with my thoughts on this season’s new offerings so you’ll know exactly when and where your show airs!

The 2011 Fall TV preview continues below.

Fall 2010 Network TV Preview

Posted by under *mixed, Television | Leave a Comment |

I’m a 34 year old pop culture fanatic. I take my TV very seriously and am a proud couch potato. Don’t get me wrong, I like to get out and explore, but the best part of my day can be watching a quality TV show that rips your heart out (a la Joss Whedon). The biggest fight my husband and I have ever had is over the fact that Direct TV doesn’t have a Tivo (stinkin sub-par DVR). A couple of years ago I started doing an entertainment news-type update for my friends. Basically I just rant and rave about TV (and sometimes movies), but I take pride in the fact that I’ve turned some of my friends on to shows they probably never would have watched before.

You can see teasers for all of the new Fall shows on the corresponding network website. So of course, I watched all of them. Without further ado, we have attached the Fall 2010 schedules for each network color coded as new shows in green, new time slots in red and any titles in bold are shows I’ll be watching.
