Fall TV  
I see they released the next Dancing With the Stars line-up and though I don't watch the show, so I really shouldn't care, but I hope the Kardashian is the first to go. OMG SO SICK OF THEM.

New Genre Fall TV I may actually watch -
Ringer - as one of the tv critics put it, it's actually a telenovela. I think watching it with that in mind will help, and there's lots of juicy cast members. SMG, of course (though tbh the trailers make me think she should've been acting a little more in recent years, she seemed kind of... out of practice?), but Ioan Gruffydd, Nestor Carbonell, etc.

Person of Interest - been down for this show since the tagline BEN LINUS AND JESUS FIGHT CRIME. Sadly, that isn't exactly the show (because how awesome would THAT be? Ben's a Judas anyway, so you'd be waiting for him to turn, and meanwhile Jesus could get his smiting on. And walking across water would be useful for chasing bad guys, amirite?) but it sounds as if it could be cool. Or dumb or boring. But I'm in to start. Even if I might rewrite the show in my head to make it the Ben and Jesus show.

Terra Nova. Dinosaurs. And hey, the show actually exists! But otoh, I've read some of the interviews with Braga and I'm a little bit ascared they don't actually know WTF they're doing.

Possibly, Grimm or Once Upon a Time. Will at least try them. Though I expect both to be canceled by midseason.

Not watching Secret Circle - I HATE the way magic is used on Vampire Diaries. And while KW has given reassurances it won't be the same, in the trailer one of them seems to create a thunderstorm by blinking her eyes. Picture my dubious face. Raising of the dead by ep 12, I predict.

Very disappointed Awake is being held for mid-season. That had one of the better trailers, intriguing and solid.

Here, have a fun ad from the UK -- 100 years of fashion in dance!

I was very annoyed to find out Awake is going to be mid-season. It's the new show I was most looking forward to. I want Jason Issacs on my TV every week!

that preview was SO awesome for AWAKE. I was looking forward to it the most, too! :/

Love that video!!

*dies laughing* I might actually have to give this a shot. I'm not really excited about any upcoming fall shows this season. "Ringer" just doesn't look that good. "Once Upon a Time" is the only one I'm a bit curious about, because it looks so different it could either go *really* well or be a trainwreck. :)

The press around Person of Interest keeps trying to insist that it's going to be a procedural, but I hope that's a big lie. Cuz I don't watch JJ shows for procedural boringness. But we'll see. And if it doesn't work out, I'll just have to redo it as the Ben and Jesus Show. (Poor Caviezel, he's probably all "Damn it that was ten years ago, let it go, people!") and many, many religious people will be horrified at Jesus, Crimefighter. lol

Terra Nova is getting me on the dinosaurs too, but I don't watch a lot of evening TV because of doing stuff before work and we watch our political shows then, too... but I so want to see dinosaurs.

Oh, and I got sucked into The Glee Project, so must watch s3 of glee. LOL!

They spent a loooong time on the dinosaur FX for the pilot at least, so those should be pretty impressive or at least fun.

I always intend to watch more tv than I actually end up watching (as spouse is an obsessive channel flipper with the patience of a fly), so we'll see if any manage to stick with me.
