Fall is soon to be upon us and that means Fall TV is going to be surging back onto our screens. In this new television season, a lot of new potential hit shows enter the fold, along with returning favorites. I love a good television show, with a great story to be told. In part one of my top 10 shows to see this Fall TV season, a headless horseman, a real housewife, a recovering alcoholic mother, and others are new to the scene.
The show follows the same basic concept of the story we all know, but with a twist. After Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) apparently dies during a mission for General George Washington in 1790, he awakens in 2013 Sleepy Hollow. He is not the only one who awakes - so does the Headless Horseman. The horseman begins his nightly killing spree and Ichabod must partner with newly appointed Sheriff Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie).
‘Sleepy Hollow’ premieres Monday, September 16 on Fox at 9/8 central.
‘I Dream of Nene’
Atlanta’s favorite housewife is back on the scene and this time the spotlight is all on her. This new Bravo series is a spinoff from ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’. It follows NeNe Leakes as she remarries the love of her life, Greg, after the couple divorced two years ago. In the weeks leading up to the extravagant event, this fairytale begins to turn into a nightmare. There will be plenty of tears, drama, shade throwing, and laughs to be had for this show.
‘I Dream of NeNe’ premieres Tuesday, September 17 at 9/8 central on Bravo.
Chuck Lorre, the creator of ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘Mike & Molly’, brings a new show to CBS this television season. ‘Mom’ follows Christy (Anna Faris), a recovering alcoholic who is now sober, as she trys to restart her life in Napa Valley California. The series also stars Alison Janney as Christy’s mom, Bonnie. From the previews, Janney’s character is giving me flashbacks from her scene stealing role as Loretta is the 90s cult classic ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’, and that is the most exciting aspect for me.
‘Mom’ premieres Monday, September 23 at 9:30/8:30 central on CBS.
‘Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’
After the battle in New York from the movie ‘The Avengers’, the world is now trying to adjust to having super heroes and aliens living on the same planet. Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who previously was thought to have died in ‘The Avengers’, is back and leading the way with a group of agents know as S.H.I.E.L.D. (strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division).
The team will work together figuring out newly emerging superhuman individuals in the world. The show also stars ‘E.R.’ alumna Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda Way.
‘Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ premieres Tuesday, September 24 at 8/7 Central on ABC
The ‘80s are back and look to be funnier than ever in this new ABC comedy. The show focuses on the daily lives of the Goldberg family as captured by their son Adam on his video camera.
