2 Broke Girls is the funniest new show. I love both the actresses and think the writing is hilarious. Mondays 9:30 on CBS
Prime Suspect is one of my new favorites. It takes a little while to get into this show, but it is funny and interesting if you stick with it. They have this show on a wait-and-see list and I am hoping it survives! They are re-playing it during the week at 10pm to get more people to watch (and fill in the cancelled show’s spots) Thursdays 10pm on NBC
Hart of Dixie with Rachel Bilson is adorable. It is hard not to keep thinking she is Summer Roberts from the OC since she talks just like her, but I LOVE this show. Jaime King is hilarious and it is a great mix of comedy and a little drama with great backdrops of Alabama. Mondays at 9pm on the CW
and…Revenge. Well, I do love this show but have to admit after watching several episodes, the acting is horrible. I never let that stop me from enjoying a good show, but still… They keep teasing that something HUGE happening on episode 7, so stay tuned. Also a quick disclaimer, they shoot this show entirely in Wilmington, NC (just like Dawson’s Creek), and the actress who plays Emily has never set foot in the Hamptons. So funny. Wednesdays, 10pm on ABC
and New Girl..my favorite. I waited to watch and then watched three in a row and laughed so hard. Zooey Deschanel is so funny and irresistible..you can’t help but love her. This show is doing so well, they were confident enough to pull it off the air for 2 weeks for baseball. The fans went crazy, so I am pretty confident this one will be around for a while. If you haven’t watched yet, set your DVR and check it out. Tuesdays 9pm on Fox
Homeland with Claire Danes is fabulous. The story is so good and you get sucked in. She is amazing on television and Mandy Patinkin is great as her mentor. I love shows set in DC, so this is a treat and makes me feel like I am watching a sister show of 24! Sundays on Showtime

About the Show
“REVENGE is universal. As primal as the need for love, sex, or the feeding of a searing hunger. Revenge crosses time and culture. It starts unwinnable wars and visits generations of blood feuds on families with unsettled scores. Revenge is as old as humanity. Dark and dramatic and endless.” — Mike Kelley, Creator of REVENGE
Wealth, beauty and status define the people in this town, but one woman is willing to destroy everyone for the sake of revenge.
Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) is new to the Hamptons. She’s met some of her wealthy neighbors, has made a few new friends and seemingly blends into the town. But something is a little odd about a young girl living in a wealthy town all on her own, and the truth is that Emily isn’t exactly new to the neighborhood. In fact, this was once her old neighborhood, until something bad happened that ruined her family and their reputation. Now Emily is back, and she’s returned to right some of those wrongs in the best way she knows how – with a vengeance.
If this show gets cancelled like Lonestar did last year, I might stop watching TV altogether. Well, that is not possible, but I will be very upset.

Bent-Midseason replacement NBC
Scandal-Midseason replacement ABC
I Hate My Teenage Daughter (11/23)
Even though the name is bizarre, this show looks so funny. My elementary school friend Katie Finneran is in this show, so it will definitely be on my DVR list!
The Firm-midseason replacement
I just read that a series based on the book “The Firm” is in the works..catching up with Mitch McDeere after he and Abby emerge from witness protection. Supposedly starring Josh Lucas.
With the Fall television season about to start, I am very hopeful that some of the new shows will not only be good, but that the TV executives think they are good enough to last more than a few episodes! Here are a few that look interesting:
A Beautiful Life-produced by Ashton Kutcher follows two models around as they are swept up in the fashion business. Elle MacPherson plays the modeling agency’s boss and Mischa Barton plays a part as well.
Let’s hope they don’t end up where these shows did-the dreaded Friday night time slot before they get CANCELLED! I am starting to think it is a good idea to Tivo all the new shows, wait about 6 weeks, then start watching them if they have made it that far. There is nothing more annoying than to get hooked on a new show and then have it just disappear into thin air!!!!
Like these did…..
Relativity with Kimberly Williams and David Conrad
Once and Again with Sela Ward and Billy Campbell
Cashmere Mafia-I liked this as much as Lipstick Jungle, it was funny and had a great cast.
What about Brian?- I LOVED this show..so annoying it didn’t last!
Big Shots-the same season as Cashmere Mafia..it was so funny and smart, I am not even sure it lasted the whole season!
October Road- now we will never know if he was the father…just plain mean.
Miss Match-the cutest show with Alicia Silverstone who can’t help herself from matchmaking.
CPW (Central Park West) a show about a modeling agency from the creater of Melrose Place. Mariel Hemingway was the star..this did not last long, but was juicy!
I didn’t list Lipstick Jungle and Dirty Sexy Money because I am probably the most upset that these two amazing shows, with plenty of fans, were not able to make it.
Am I missing any other shows???
