Fall TV Line-up - Set Your DVRs!

By Katie M

Aww, yeah! I am so excited to get some TV back this fall! And if you're just as ready as me, then be sure to read the full TV line-up below! Lots of new shows have already debuted but the majority start tonight though later this month, so the timing of this blog is all good. I tuned in last week to watch the premier of Melrose Place. I was a HUGE fan of the original series and I have high hopes for this season's show, but I have to admit the jury is still out. A few actors from the original cast did cameos and have - what looks like - promising re-ocurring roles - but I'm just not sure it will stand up to the original. We shall see. I am one who likes to pick a few shows each season and that's that. But, if Melrose pans out, then I may have to use my DVR more than the norm. Our house is also a huge fan of HBO shows like Big Love (me and my husband) and Entourage (my husband). I understand the series for Entourage is almost over, and I've been trying to figure out when Big Love starts up again - but no luck. If anyone knows, please share!

And, if you are a reality-show junkie like Rachel H, then be sure to scroll to the bottom of the list. All the returning reality shows - and new ones - are listed below. And, my all-time-favorite American Idol doesn't start until January, as usual. But, how excited are we to have Ellen replace Paula? I don't know about you, but I am! Keep reading to get the full scoop for fall TV, and be sure to pull out your calendars!

Oh my gosh - I had no idea there were so many reality shows. That is sad. My picks are America's Next Top Model, So You Think You Can Dance, and Survivor. Other than that, I am pretty much done with reality TV. American Idol takes WAY too long to go through the judges comments! I can't sit there any longer. I guess if I had a DVR, it would help. But my very favorite show is The Office. I think it starts this Thursday at 9pm. Can't wait!

anyone know when LOST comes back on? sorry if i didn't see it on the list and it is on there - it was a pretty massive list of shows!

Katie M said...

I don't think Lost was on the list, strange. My husband is a huge fan and he said he thinks it starts in January.

Summer said...

I also had no idea that there were so many reality shows. Although, I really only watch Project Runway.
I swear!

Victoria said...

I started watching The Bad Girls Club on Oxygen and it was so juicy! If you were a MTV Real World fan, you would like it.

What about Cougar Town with Courtney Cox? It looks pretty funny!

Kari Foster Allison said...

I am so hooked on Biggest Loser now! They stepped it up a notch during this seasons premiere, pulling on the heartstrings like they are Extreme Home Makeover or something! :-)

I vow to workout more this season, hmmm, Biggest Loser or 30Rock? How can I watch both and get in shape too?
