The new season of television is almost here and its time to decide what shows to program into your TiVO RSS downloader.  Here’s a quick look at several new shows I’m looking forward this season; feel free to chime in with your 2 cents.

New Shows

This show has probably the strongest cast among the new shows, with Saturday Night Live veterans Tracy Morgan and Tina Fey, as well as Alec Baldwin in his typical role of macho head-hauncho.  Alright, I’m not as big of a fan of the description as I was the preview.  I think my thing for Tina Fey may be swaying my judgement, but that’s okay.


Welcome to the set of The Girlie Show, a fictional television show that serves as the backdrop to Tina Fey’s new workplace comedy. Liz Lemon (Fey) is The Girlie Show’s head writer and is being pushed to the edge of reason by the show’s two stars and a demanding network honcho. In order for Liz to keep her job, and her sanity, she has to balance the egos, the mandates and the neuroses while maintaining The Girlie Show laughs. It won’t be easy! In this bold, star-studded comedy, anything can happen!

Premieres: October 11, 2006 on NBC


Finally! I super-hero show done right.  I know many people are looking forward to this show.  Not often do you get goosebumps from trailers for TV shows, but this one looks superb.  Basically, I think it all rests on the the nerdy Japanese guy’s voice narrating (amazing).


Heroes is a serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives. The relatable superheroes include Peter Petrelli, a 30-year-old male nurse who believes can fly, Diego Medina, a 28-year-old junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high, Niki Sanders, a 33-year-old Las Vegas showgirl who can do incredible things with mirrors, Hiro Makamura, a 24-year-old Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still, D.L. Hawkins, a 31-year-old inmate who can transport himself through walls, Matt Parkman, a beat cop who can hears other people’s thoughts, and Claire Bennet, 17-year-old cheerleader who defies death at every turn. Not only are they discovering what having superpowers means to them but also the larger picture of where their superpowers come from. Eventually their superpowers draw them together when they try to evade the series’ antagonist who wants to harness their super-DNA for himself. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world.

Premieres: September 25, 2006 on NBC


I think the idea behind this show is really neat.  The thought of being completely isolated from the rest of the world with no idea what is happening outside your town and no communication means is very scary.  However, judging by the trailer, I just wonder if they’ll be able to pull it off.  They seem to be pushing the “we’re a family, we have to stick together” card in order reach for a larger demographic.  I really wish it was playing the “it’s every man for himself” card which would be really make a great show.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.


After a nuclear disaster caused by several terrorist attacks destroys most of America, residents of a small Kansas town must come to terms with a new and very different reality.
