New TV Shows this Fall

It's hard to give new TV shows chances these days. They hook us in just a couple episodes, then take them away from us (The Ex List, Eastwick). They hook us in a season or two, then take them away from us (October Road, Life on Mars, Joan of Arcadia, Outsourced). Going into this new season of television, I'm nervous about getting my heart broken yet again, but there are still several shows I've got my eye on...

On the CW:

Ringer - Welcome back to TV, Sarah!!

Hart of Dixie - I know, I know, another show about a doctor. But I think this show looks sweet, and I'm giving it a shot. Plus, it has lots of familiar faces!

The Secret Circle - Apparently this is from the creators of The Vampire Diaries (Which I think has been done very well so far), so it's worth a look. 


Grimm - looks a little creepy, but something about it intrigues me. 

Smash - this is a mid-season addition, but Katherine McPhee can SING. And I'm a huge fan of Glee, so of course I'm going to watch this one. 


Once Upon a Time - I wondered what happened to the girl from House. Now I know! And I hope this show is done right, and that it has the strength to stick on ABC. They always try these types of shows but don't hang on to them. Stop messing with us, ABC!


  1. I'm going to try all of these, minus Smash (not my thing). Excited about Ringer & Once Upon a Time! (And Hart of Dixie--I won't lie.)

  2. ONCE UPON A TIME could be the biggest hit this Fall, mind what I say :)

  3. I'm liking the look of Hart of :Mmy home state!, Amber Tamblyn,& Jason Street from Friday Night Lights=LOVE. Hope I'm not disappointed! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Man, I wish I could watch more tv, but I think it's the sacrifice I'm willing to make to have time to write. Once I get my kiddos in bed, that's my writing time, so tv shows get the boot. Too bad because a lot of these look interesting!

    I hope you get nicely hooked on a show that's around for a long while, Kristin! That's not nice of them to keep pulling your favorite shows like that. >(


  5. I can't wait until Fall! I'm so with you on the watching new shows, loving them, and then they are canceled. It totally sucks!

    And that Once Upon a Time. I haven't heard of that one, but it looks really good!

  6. I wish I had time to check out Terra Nova, and watch more Burn Notice and Psych. As it is, I DVR NCIS and NCIS: LA. Like someone else said, I have to sacrifice watching some TV to find time to write :)
