September is the month everyone looks forward to whether that be for football, cooler weather, or prime-time TV. Here are some shows maybe you'd want to add to your Fall TV Lineup.
(September 13, 9pm on CW)
Sarah Michelle Gellar is baack! Now Buffy fans can rejoice. Gellar finally makes her return to prime-time TV with the show Ringer. She will play the role of two twin sisters, and what I managed to get from the shows description was this, "The new drama features Gellar as Bridget, a troubled recovering alcoholic on the run. She hides out by masquerading as her wealthy twin sister Siobhan, who, it turns out, also has a bounty on her head." (TV Guide)
Sarah Michelle Gellar also says that she's honoring Buffy fans with this new show. "I have the most incredible fan base and I also had the most incredible show. You don't repeat history, but you also want to honor that and my fans are smart and like evocative television and with this all the pieces fell into place." (TV Guide)
It all sounds like a bunch of complicated-ness in all of the descriptions that I've read. I'm just excited to see Gellar return to TV, because Buffy The Vampire Slayer is my favorite TV show. We shall have to watch and see what exactly it's going to be about. I have a feeling, it's gonna be an interesting show. The season premiere is on September 13, at 9pm on the CW. Tune in if your interested! I most certainly will be.
(September 20th, 9pm on FOX)
"Zooey Deschanel plays Jess Day, an offbeat and 'adorkable' woman in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves into a loft with three single guys. Goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn't. Although she's quirky and somewhat awkward, Jess is comfortable in her own skin. More prone to friendships with women, she's not used to hanging with the boys - especially at home." (FOX)
They've been advertising for this show like crazy for months now. It's really watering down my anticipation to see the show, AND If I'm correct, it'll be coming on the same time as Ringer. Yeah, I'm not sure how often I'll be catching the show during its actual air time. But I do plan to follow it online! It looks like it'll be one of those quirky comedies that I like. I'm not sure how funny I find Zooey Deschanel, but I don't think it'll be awful. But it's already a FOX show, and that says enough. I know that shows on Fox definitely don't last that long. So, hopefully it won't be as short lived as some of FOX's previous flops. New Girl premieres on September 20th at 9pm on FOX.
(September 26th, at 8pm on FOX)
"Terra Nova follows an ordinary family on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149, the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped and overcrowded, with the majority of plant and animal life extinct. The future of mankind is in doubt, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past." (FOX)
Every time I see a preview for it, I'm so quick to predict it's doom. But I don't want to determine the fate of a show just by seeing a commercial. I mean come on, like I said for New Girl, it's a FOX show. So I'm not sure how long it will last. I do plan to tune in and see exactly what it's about. If you're as curious as I am, make sure you tune in to FOX on September 26th at 8pm!
There is a much longer list of new shows coming to the "Big Four" this fall. Other titles that have been making headlines are, Pan Am (ABC), Revenge (ABC), Charlies Angels (ABC), Person of Interest (CBS), and Grimm (NBC).
Among all the new shows that are coming, some of my favorites will be coming back for new seasons: The Vampire Diaries, Glee (YAY!), Community, Modern Family, and even Covert Affairs, which is moving from it's summer run to the fall.
So, what will you be watching this fall?
