What new TV show are you looking forward to this fall?

  1. I’ve seen the pilot for Go On. It’s a decent show, very funny, but also a tear jerker. The guy did lose his wife so it has somber moments, but believe me when I say the comedy prevails!

  2. Wow! Where have I been this summer? I haven’t heard of most of those shows! But Thanks for the post, some of those shows look really interesting.
    Can’t wait for some of them to air.

  3. There are SO many good shows this year! Just coming back are a couple of my favorites; New Girl, The Office, Parks & Rec, and my all-time favorite, Community. There’s a ton of shows on FX I’m hooked on, too; Sunny, SOA< Wilfred, Louie, Totally Biased; my DVR is gonna be FULL! Luckily, through my job at DISH I picked up the Hopper, which will use this PrimeTime Anytime thing to allow me to record all the major-network shows using just one tuner, so I can still record all the other shows I watch on FX and Comedy Central too. I’m really looking forward to checking out The Mindy Kaling project, also!
