Fall TV Winners and Losers
The warm Summer nights are behind us, it’s dark by 7:30 and the leaves are starting to change colors… it can only mean one thing– the new Fall TV season is upon us! The networks all launched their new seasons this past week, and now that we’ve had our first taste of the new and returning shows, we decided to make our calls on the shows worth watching, the ones with potential, and the shows that will probably be cancelled by October! Keep reading for our full Fall TV breakdown, to help you decide how to best burn through your precious primetime hours each day of the week!
Two and a Half Men (CBS) Everyone tuned in to see what Two and a Half Men would be like with Ashton instead of Charlie last Monday (which made for some HUGE ratings), and after watching the first new episode, it looks like these men aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Dancing With The Stars (ABC) We got our first glimpse of the new DWTS cast on the dance floor, with a mixup of the Cha Cha or the Viennese Waltz. Poor Ron Artest won’t be sticking with the rest of the season (since he got voted off), but we sure will.
2 Broke Girls (CBS) The new CBS sitcom is one of two created by comedienne Whitney Cummings… and the only funny one created by Whitney. The always-hilarious Kat Dennings was on the top of her game in the premiere episode, and she had great chemistry with co-star Beth Behrs.
The Playboy Club (NBC) Apparently the reason Mad Men is such a great TV show has less to do with being set in the 60’s, and more to do with excellent writing and compelling characters… at least that’s what the horrid Playboy Club seemed to suggest from it’s first episode. Lot’s of 60’s style on display here, but with absolutely no substance.
The Sing-Off (NBC) We’re sure there’s some fans of The Sing Off out there, and no offense intended– but seriously DWTS owns Monday night for reality competitions, and reminders from the excellent The Voice (another NBC show) makes The Sing Off feel a little over the hill.
Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) We still haven’t been able to stay awake for an entire episode of the action/ cop drama remake. The original 70’s version is still a classic, but there’s just something about the new version that doesn’t click, even after a full season under their belt.
