Well, the new television seasons are slowly staggering out and starting now, so what shows are you looking forward to returning, or new shows starting?
NBC has rolled out most of their new seasons, with ABC and CBS following suit in the next week or so I think. Fox has a few new shows, but many favorites won't be debuting until November (after baseball).
Here's some shows that my wife and I watch, and try to catch pretty regularly:
Scrubs (NBC) - Maybe its just me, but I think this is one of the funniest shows on television. Probably our overall favorite show right now, and we don't miss it. If you are willing, check it out, I think you'll enjoy it. (9:30/8:30 Central)
Arrested Development (FOX) - Not debuting until November 7, but we caught the entire first season (and will be picking it up on DVD next month), and this is a very funny show. It is a little bit different type of humor, but we really like it. Definitely a show to give a chance if you have the time, and it will be shown right after the next show.....
The Simpsons (FOX) - Everyone knows about this show. Some say that the quality has fallen off as it has gone on, but I for one still enjoy it and am really glad it is continuing. Another show that doesn't debut until November (14th? I think).
Family Guy (FOX/Cartoon Network) - A little ways off yet (2005), but we're looking forward to catching the new episodes of Family Guy. We watch the reruns regularly on Adult Swim (as well as Futurama). Now if they would only bring Futurama back as well.
Smallville (WB) - Actually only saw this show a couple of times during its first few years, but we've been catching the reruns over the summer, and it is a pretty good show. Maybe its the fact that it is based on a comic book hero, but we've really enjoyed watching it this summer...I think we'll try to catch it this season if we can.
That 70s Show (FOX) - Another show we catch pretty regularly. Maybe not "as funny" to me personally as Scrubs or Arrested Development, but still pretty consistent and quite enjoyable. Plus, its always good for a couple Star Wars references per season. This is one Fox show that has debuted already.
We catch shows such as Everybody Loves Raymond (last season), King of Queens, and Still Standing on CBS. All are fairly funny I think, but not ones that we "must see" necessarily. Hadn't really watched King of Queens much either until this summer, and have started to enjoy it more and more. My wife originally started watching "The OC" last summer, and eventually got me hooked as well. I know, that is sad, but we will probably be watching the second season as well. Although I know some people absolutely hate it just to hate it, we have been catching "Joey" so far, because we were fans of the Friends series. The first episode was ok, funny in spots, but nothing spectacular. Will probably continue to watch it though. Also caught the first couple shows of "Father of the Pride" on NBC, for the most part. It is an animated "adult" comedy (how it was advertised), much along the lines of Shrek (from the same creators). Not too bad, nothing spectacular here either though. We are also good to watch the "home shows" from time to time on TLC....Clean Sweep and Trading Spaces being the most common ones we see. Otherwise, the rest of our TV viewing time consists of sports, cable/VH1 special type stuff, old shows from Nick at Nite or TV Land, and the occasional cartoon (Justice League, The Batman, old Spidey/X-Men reruns, and occasionally Nickelodeon stuff). Oh, and of course, Adult Swim. Seems like a lot of TV I guess, but it is one of our main forms of entertainment. After working out in the early morning, working all day, then walking the dog and house work, we're usually ready to plop in front of the tube at night. Really just a few "mainstays" that we catch each week anymore though. Kind of "sitcom" type people, and those are either getting not so good anymore, or falling by the wayside.
