Fall TV Preview
Sayonara, books. Nice knowing you, quality time with kids. The fall television season is on its way, and quite frankly, we have a lot of catching up to do. Mondays will be freakin' epic if Stella accepted Ted's marriage proposal and is the mystery mama on How I Met Your Mother (CBS, Mon., 8:30 p.m.). Though you might want to set the DVR that night for Dancing With the Stars (ABC, Mon., 8 p.m.). Admit it; it's going to be awesome to watch Cloris Leachman mop the floor with Kim Kardashian. On Wednesday nights Tyra Banks continues her quest to be the most batshit crazy woman on the small screen on America's Next Top Model (CW, Wed., 8 p.m). Thursdays get a little naughty with the awkward Michael-Jan-Holly love triangle on The Office (NBC, Thurs., 9 p.m.) and Liz Lemon's mockery of the adoption system on 30 Rock (NBC, Thurs., 9:30 p.m.). Cap off the night by going straight to hell with our hometown crew from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FX, Thurs., 10 p.m.). Don't forget to tune in to Showtime on Sunday nights to watch art imitate life as David Duchovny plays an oversexed family man on Californication (Showtime, Sun., 10 p.m.). And that's just returning shows. Don't forget to make nice with the new kids on TV when Worst Week (CBS, Mon., 9:30 p.m.) debuts--starring the guy from those genius T-Mobile awkward voicemail commercials. Plus, Anna Paquin tries not to suck on the new vampire saga True Blood (HBO, Sun., 9 p.m.). And in this television season's most surprising return to primetime, Josh Jackson comes back from the Creek for Fringe (Fox, Tues., 9 p.m.). Welcome back, TV. We sure did miss your reassuring glow.
