Fall is my favorite season, not only because of the cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors on the trees, but also because it’s the return of my favorite shows and the premiere of new fall television shows. This year, there are quite a few that I’m looking forward to watching. I know by the end of the season, half of them will be gone, because it seems networks don’t like to give new shows much of a chance these days. Still, I’ll start watching them and hope for the best!
New Fall 2012 TV Shows I’m Planning to Watch

Beauty and the Beast– CW- Premieres: Thursday, Oct 11 at 9/8c

I’m seeing lots of familiar faces from shows I loved in the past! I really wish Arrow starred Justin Hartley, the guy who played him in Smallville. That would just make it so much better. Still, he’s one of my favorite comic book heroes, so I’ll still watch it and try to get used to someone else in the role. Speaking of Smallville, Kristin Kreuk aka Lana Lang is looking stunning as usual in her role as the Beauty in Beauty and the Beast!
J.J. Abrams has been hit or miss lately, so I’m really looking forward to what he has to offer with Revolution. Of course, since he’s teaming up with Supernatural’s Eric Kripke, I think it’s going to be a good one! I guess Terry O’Quinn (Lost, Alias) isn’t going to be reprising his role on Hawaii Five-0 this season, since he’ll be busy running an Upper East Side apartment building that just so happens to be inhabited by people who made deals with the devil in 666 Park Avenue. I wonder if he plays the devil? That would be really fitting!
What new (or old) shows are you looking forward to watching this Fall?
I so want Emily Owens, M.D. to be great. I haven’t loved a medical show since the early days of Grey’s Anatomy, so I really hope this new show starring Meryl Streep’s daughter lives up to my expectations for it. I’m planning to watch Revolution too. Sadly, I work late nights at Dish, so I’ll have to set my Hopper to record all these shows for me. It’s nice to know that with 2,000 hours of recording space, I don’t have to worry about running out of room for any of the shows I want to check out this fall. There are so many! I bet you’re right about most of them getting canceled, though. Networks just don’t seem interested in giving shows a chance to find their audience anymore.
