But I have to say, I’m pretty stoked about a few, particularly NBC’s “Up All Night,” premiering Wednesday.
Not only does it star three of my favorite comedic actors — Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph — but the story just works. Applegate plays a successful career women/wife turned mom, Arnett her stay-at-home husband. Both are new parents, saying the kinds of things we only quietly think.
And then there’s ABC’s throwback “Pan Am,” starring Christina Ricci and airing Sept. 25. It looks like a nostaligic period drama — simliar to AMC’s “Mad Men” — that, if the writing is stellar, could be that must-watch Sunday night hit.
Both have all the makings of becoming classics.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been excited about new shows. Like set-the-DVR-if-I-had-a-DVR excited.
I felt that way about ABC’s “Lost” in its first season, “My So-Called Life” on MTV, and — I’ll admit it — the new “Hawaii Five-O.” But I can’t remember too many seasons where I’ve actually punched the premiere date in my iPhone.
Any shows you’re looking forward to this fall?
