CBS Returns with a vengeance with a number of high quality and interesting shows. Though there are are only 5 new CBS shows coming, each has it's own style that appeals to a large demographic.
ABC brings us a whole slew of new dramas this year, including a 1960s period drama and a fairy tale drama which seems to be all the rage this season. With the demise of Desperate Housewives, ABC is wasting no time capitalizing on the standing audience to help maintain its place on Sunday nights.
After the dismal failure that was the Jay Leno Show last year, NBC has a lot of open time to fill this fall, and as such, they are bringing a whole slew of new shows to the air.
FOX has taken the surprising move of being generally conservative with their new show scheduling. Most shows from last season return this season with only three new series launching this fall.
It's well known that I'm a massive fan of Fringe, naming it one of my top shows you didn't watch in 2010. Today, Fox released the 4th of their teaser trailers, chock full of hidden messaging and intrigue.
Fringe returns for its 4th season on September 23, 2011 on Fox.
Read on for the previous three teasers in the series.
The first week of the 2010 Fall season is just about finished. I've had a lot of thoughts over a lot of the new shows, but there were several shows that just didn't quite make the cut to me.

I might watch another episode of this drama, but overall it just moves at a glacial pace with uninteresting characters that with no emotional connection. I might catch another week and see, but I'm not impressed.
With horrible writing, this show just feels tired and recycled.
Slightly sweet but overall very laden with cliches similar to My Name is Earl which might be a bit tired by now. It does have a strong Glee lead in, but it's follow on the other hand...
This horribly written show is dull, uninspired, and generally annoying.
Better With You
This comedy just feels like a lousy version of Rules of Engagement without the charm or humor. It has a superstar comedy cast, but the overall pacing and writing needs to be "better than it is."
It's a tedious show about annoying people.
$#*! My Dad Says
Boring script. Boring concept. Boring cast.
This show takes everything that could be funny about life managing a call center in India and leaves it out on the cutting room floor. All that's left is an unfunny, borderline offensive show. Check out the movie [Netflix] instead, which actually is funny.
While it's a returning I just wanted to mention that I'm glad this is Steve Carrell's last season of this show that should have been canceled at least 2 seasons ago.
All the other crime dramas
I can only handle so much crime drama, as it's not a genre I care for that much. Overall, none of the drama of the week seemed that appealing to me.
While this blog is more centered around prime time scripted shows, it's hard to anything about television and not hear about the latest in the NBC late night drama between Conan, Leno, and NBC. Personally, I don't think NBC should have ever made any changes to the lineup at all. Quite frankly the status quo was working very well, and to this day I'm not sure what the motivation was to move Leno and Conan. Furthermore, as nice of a guy Jimmy Fallon may be, I really hate his show.
At least it's providing a bit of fuel for some jokes, though in the end I think the jokes going to be on NBC when the whole thing finally blows up in their face.
CBS.com has a sneak behind the scenes peak of next week's 100th episode musical special, Girls vs. Suits. I has plenty of potential to be another brilliant Neil Patrick Harris musical show, and I'm sure all HIMYM and NPH fans are waiting with baited breath.
