8:30 pm: Community (NBC; 10/19) I have no idea to expect from this season. In the Dan Harmon Era, this would be a good thing. With him gone, are the new showrunners going to try to continue with a watered-down version of Harmon or take the show in their own direction? Neither seem particularly appealing.
9:00 pm: Fringe (FOX; 10/28) Another final season. I’m glad that this show gets to go out on it’s own instead of this show being cancelled and not knowing how the show was meant to end.
8:00 pm: Last Resort (ABC, 9/27) Shawn Ryan (The Shield) on network TV? I’m in. Having Andre Braugher doesn’t hurt either. It’s a shame that this probably won’t last past the first season in this absolutely brutal timeslot.
8:00 pm: The Big Bang Theory (CBS; 9/27) It’s not as funny as it used to be (too much Jim Parsons but an Emmy will do that) but last season’s emphasis on the three female characters as a separate group – Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Balik) – gave the show new life.
