The Fall TV Season is upon us!

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Can you smell that? It’s September and that means one thing (in the US), it’s Fall TV Season again! Yahhhhooooooo! Our fave shows are back from the break. I’m also looking forward to the new shows coming this September! It’s been awhile since I was interested in this much new shows for a one season. Here are my I’ll-give-you-a-chance shows from this season’s newbies.

Partners (Sept 24)
"One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush + Ugly Betty's Michael Urie = win! From the creators of Will & Grace, Urie and David Krumholtz play best friends/architects whose working relationship resembles a marriage. Bush plays Krumholtz's fiancée, while former Superman Brandon Routh is Urie's significant other."

Out of the 4 people in the cast, I love 2 of them and like 1! I am a One Tree Hill follower and shed some tears when it ended this year because it gave me closure. I am ecstatic to see Sophia Bush in a comedy show! She won’t be crying as much or stalked in this show. Michael Urie was also fantastic in Ugly Betty, another show I loved, and I am happy to see him find a new project. Brandon Routh in Chuck was hot, then he’s Michael Urie boyfriend here, oh Marc St. James you are so lucky. Now to see Sophia and Michael trade punch lines from the brains behind Will & Grace - yay!

Go On (Sept 11)

"Matthew Perry is back, y'all! The Friends star plays sportscaster Ryan King in this comedy about a man forced to seek counseling after the death of his wife. However, the group he meets in therapy may just be exactly what he needs."

After he retired Chandler Bing, Matthew Perry became Matt Albie in Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip. The show only had 1 season and I felt like it didn’t deserve to be cancelled.  I loved both shows so I’m excited to see him in another one. This time, Matthew Perry takes a stab at another comedy that will make you laugh but also tug your heart strings. I got a bit teary when I saw the trailer because we’ve all been there in that abysmal pit. Go On shows us the real issues and hurt but deals with it in a different way. Don’t you love the “Sob Story” contest? It reminded me of How I Met Your Mother. Haha

The New Normal (Sept 11) 

"A family is a family and love is love." Yeah, this is definitely a Ryan Murphy show! The New Normal centers on a gay couple's (played by The Hangover's Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells) search for a surrogate to carry their child and the jinks that ensue once they find the perfect match: Goldie (Georgia King), a Midwestern waitress and single mother.”

It’s a Ryan Murphy show so you know it’s bound to be interesting. The New Normal showcases an unconventional family helping each other find a dream. What can I say; I’m a sucker for comedy and feel good shows! Based on the trailer, each character holds his/her own and contribute to the dynamic of the show.


Guys with Kids (Sept 12) 

"Jesse Bradford, Zach Cregger and Anthony Anderson are three best friends and thirtysomething dads trying to hold on to their youth while holding on to their new babies' hands in this comedy from executive producer Jimmy Fallon. Think The Hangover but with diapers, bottles and crying instead of partying, jail visits and monkeys. The Sopranos' Jamie Lynn Sigler also stars."

So I like comedies. I’m not as passionate about this show as the other but I’ll give it a chance.

Elementary (Sept 27)

"Yes, yet another Sherlock Holmes update. Wait, don't roll your eyes! This one, from Rob Doherty, has a few interesting twists up its sleeve, including Lucy Liu as Watson, a sober companion to Jonny Lee Miller's rehabbing Sherlock, who now lives in New York. Aidan Quinn also stars as Capt. Tobias "Toby" Gregson. (Sherlockians will note that he shares the same name as the consulting detective's freelance mongrel: "I would rather have Toby's help than that of the whole detective force of London," said Sherlock in The Sign of Four.)"

Admittedly, I’m not a big Sherlock Holmes fan. I know who he is fundamentally but it ends there. I don’t know the different storylines and elements about the character. The only reason why I’m giving Elementary a chance is because of the 2 lead stars: Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. I don’t have strong feelings for them (hate or love) but they both elicit positive vibes from me. 

Made in Jersey (Sept 28)

"Human Target's Janet Montgomery stars in this drama centering on a working-class lawyer who gets a job in a Manhattan law firm thanks to her book (and street) smarts. Kyle MacLachlan, Stephanie March and Donna Murphy also star in Made in Jersey, which hails from Kevin Falls and Dana Calvo."

Made in Jersey seems like another feel good show about an underdog very much like Ugly Betty. I’m hoping the series will make me a fan.

No Airing Dates as of Writing

The Goodwin Games

"We hate when money comes with strings attached. Estranged siblings (Scott Foley, Becki Newton and Jake Lacy) must move in together to inherit $20 million. Piece of cake, right? Probably not in this comedy created by the producers of How I Met Your Mother."

Attaching Becki Newton and Scott Foley to a project and I’m sold. Another Ugly Betty alumnus, this is Becki’s 2nd show post Betty while Scott Foley has been guesting in several of my fave shows. I wish for the both of them to land a show that will last as long. With the premise of the show, I just don’t know if it’s sustainable because when the games end, so does the show. Concept wise, the first thing that came to mind was “Oh, this is like How I Met Your Mother”. (The show ends when we meet the mother.) Only to find out that this is from the same group.


“From J.J. Abrams and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, Revolution is a high-concept drama that asks one harrowing question: What would happen if all forms of technology just stopped working? The show centers on Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), a young woman who is on a mission to find her uncle (played by Twilight actor Billy Burke) after the local militia kills her father and kidnaps her brother. Directed by Iron Man's Jon Favreau, we're already excited to check out Revolution, thanks to the four-minute movie trailer-style promo.”

I loved the first season of Heroes. What is noticeably missing from my shows is a sci-fi one. Out of all the new pilots, this is the only sci-fi show I gravitated towards.

1600 Penn

“Bill Pullman stars as the President of the United States in this comedy about an average American family dealing with everyday issues...except for the fact that they're the first family. Jenna Elfman is the stepmom desperate to win over his kids ,while Josh Gad is the first son and one of the administration's biggest liabilities. 1600 Penn, which is described as Modern Family meets The West Wing, hails from Modern Family's Jason Winer.”

Teehee This is another comedy that I’m giving a chance.


Mark your calendars for the premiere dates! What new show are you looking forward to?
