Random Top Ten

Random Top Ten!!

Top Ten TV Premieres I Am Looking Forward to this Fall

10. ER
I'm very curious to see how they handle this season, given that they'll have an entire season knowing it's the last one - a luxury most shows don't get.

9. Big Bang Theory
This show grew on me last year, and I am curious to see where they take the main relationship in these days of letting core romantic tension resolve.

8. The Simpsons

7. True Blood
I like the idea of a vampire series on HBO - the sex, blood, and darkness won't need to be as coyly addressed as they were on Angel and Buffy.

6. My Name Is Earl
I don't get why so many have soured on this show - I find the writing to be as sweetly raunchy and cleverly funny as always.

5. House
Very curious to see if last season's notion of a more cohesive long-term arc is repeated. It worked well for a show that can be a bit repetitious.

4. Fringe
I'm very curious to see what this is, as the promos have left me not knowing many details.

3. 30 Rock
Did you read the New Yorker profile of Alec Baldwin? You should.

2. The Office
Did a superb job of taking the Jim-Pam thing forward without artificial drama or stagnancy. Can they keep it up?

1. Pushing Daisies
As sweetly whimsical and precious (in a good way) a show as I've ever seen. Dying to see where they take it in season two.

1. (So I miscounted - leave me alone) How I Met Your Mother
Will Sarah Chalke be the mother? I'm betting that we don't know for a while and that there's still a big twist in the offing. He marries her and they have kids is too easy for this show.

Until Whenever

Big Bang Theory also grew me. Don't you also like Two and a Half Men? But the only two shows I looking forward to are "30 Rock" and "Life."
