Fall Preview: Returning Shows

The world of television is pretty boring right now. It is one of those awkward in between times: all the summer shows have aired or will soon air their season finales, but none of the fall shows premiere for another few weeks.

So what is a diligent TV viewer to do? (Other than watch two full seasons of a long-cancelled 90s family comedy over the span of four short days …)

Honestly, I don’t have a good answer for that question. So for now, I am going to take a look back over some of the shows I’ve reviewed already –  and hunt down a premiere date for those about to start back up again.

Fall shows: (Click title to read my original show review)

Chuck – season 4 begins September 20, and my favorite dorky but lovable spy will soon come face to face with his long-absent mother (played by Terminator alum Linda Hamilton.)

Bones – for season 6 on September 23, Booth and Brennan reunite after a year apart. And Booth has a new love interest. This does not look promising.

Castle – hopefully Castle’s not still back with his ex-wife when season 3 premieres on September 20. How ever will poor Detective Beckett be able to console herself?

The Vampire Diaries – comes back on September 9 for season 2. And guess which surprise visitor from the finale will be sticking around for a while? Katherine, the scheming vampire who looks exactly like sweet little Elena. Holy case of mistaken identity, Batman! This could get interesting. (Or turn into a really bad soap opera. The jury’s still out.)

Glee – season 2 starts September 21. Finn and Rachel are a couple, Quinn is a Cheerio again, and Britney Spears will guest star in an early episode! Also, the man best known as Uncle Jesse is playing a dentist/new Emma love interest/enemy of Mr. Schue. 

Dancing With The Stars – season 11 starts September 20. Cast includes Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, Jersey Shore’s“The Situation,” and Mrs. Brady herself Florence Henderson.

V – The aliens are coming! Season 2 starts sometime midseason – exact date still undetermined. Whatever. The very nice too look at good-alien doctor Joshua better stay alive this season, or I refuse to watch. Seriously. I’m this close to abandoning the show. They’d better not mess this up.

Favorite Faces for TV Spoilers

Kristin Dos Santos interviews actress Kristin Chenowith for E! / CC BY-SA 2.0

There are a number of bloggers who have made a name for themselves writing about popular TV shows and offering weekly plot spoilers and upcoming episode sneak peeks.

These are three in particuar that I follow quite frequently.

Kristin Dos Santos – “Watch With Kristin writes for the E! Entertainment web site and is their resident “TV Diva.” Her site is the one I personally visit most frequently for TV news and spoilers.

I got super excited in 2009 when Kristin shared news about the birth of her son, even though that meant she had to go on maternity leave for a while and would be leaving the spoiler-posting duties to her team of WWK interns and staff.

“Watch With Kristin” is full of polls, trivia and video clips. It’s my absolute favorite way to spend a weekend afternoon learning useless TV information and accomplishing absolutely nothing … because this site makes it so fun!

Korbi Ghosh – “Korbi TV.” Korbi started out working for Kristin at E! Online, before moving to Zap2it in April 2008 to head her own TV spoiler blog. It’s much the same format as Kristin’s, but features a bit more heavilty the ABC Family-type drama shows aimed at older teenage girls.

Korbi also does a video segment called “Drinking with the Stars,” where she intervivews current TV actors and actresses over cocktails. For underage kid actors, like Jason Dolley, the fare is decidedly non-alcoholic and she will take them out for milkshakes instead.

Michael Ausiello – “The Ausiello Files.” Ausiello writes about TV for the Entertainment Weekly website, but my favorite part is his weekly coloum of TV spoilers titled “Ask Ausiello.”

He’s been around since before Korbi, providing spoilers and competing with Kristin for whose column can get the most web hits. It is for this reason that he and Kristin occasionally refer to eachother as “frenemies” in their respective blogs.

He also provides spoilers via video clips on “Ausiello TV.”

Ausiello is a great place for TV spoilers and I visit his site quite frequently for scoop Kristin might have missed. Though I have to say that in this particular battle, I am decidedly Team Kristin.

So now the question is:

Watch With Kristin, Korbi TV, or The Ausiello Files, which do you prefer?
