While most of our shows are currently wrapping up their seasons in preparation for the summer hiatus, I donít think itís too soon to start anticipating the new fall season. Maybe my excitement for this fall comes from the extra long strike-induced hiatus this year. Itíll be good to see our shows getting back on track with new seasons. NBC posted the premiere dates for their fall shows. This includes the return of Heroes.
The CW posted their fall 2008 schedule and although you might not see Reaper on the line-up, rest assured that Sam and the devil will be back for midseason 2009. In the meantime, the CW will be premiering the highly anticipated 90210 spinoff this fall, as well as a couple of other new shows.
CBSís 2008 fall schedule is up and I donít know about anyone else but Iím extremely pleased to see that How I Met Your Mother is on it. Unfortunately for the, the same cannot be said for the recently cancelled Moonlight but CBS has added a handful of new series to the lineup.
Between their fall schedule, which includes the new J.J. Abrams series, Fringe and their midseason line-up, which not only includes the return of 24 (oh, Jack Bauer, how weíve missed you!) but also the new Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse, the futureís looking bright for Fox.
ABC.com posted their fall 2008 schedule on their website this week. The line-up includes their new series, Life on Mars as well as the new game show, Opportunity Knocks. For the most part though, the line-up looks pretty familiar with a few changes and some absences (farewell October Road!). Eli Stone moved to Tuesdays giving Mars the post-Greyís timeslot.
Itís network upfront season, which means the networks will be unveiling their upcoming primetime lineups. NBC recently released their new schedule for fall 2008 through summer 2009. While itís a little too early to start setting your DVRs, the schedule looks promising and there are quite a few new series included on the schedule.
