For these first few weeks of fall TV, I'll have quick posts up at 9am each day reminding you of which shows start that night, with times and channels and maybe a quick thought or two. Remember, you can see my whole fall TV spreadsheet here. (All times Eastern.)
A Gifted Man series premiere, CBS
Honestly, the premise of this sounds kind of dumb to me, but it has such a good cast that I feel compelled to give it a chance.
Kitchen Nightmares season 5 premiere, FOX
This is the one where Gordon Ramsey tries to help bad restaurants, right? If you're interested, you probably know that already.
Nikita season 2 premiere, CW
I don't find this as compelling as some of the CW dramas, but it's fun.
CSI: NY season 8 premiere, CBS
I've somehow never gotten into any of the CSI shows, though I'm not sure why, since I like procedurals.
Fringe season 4 premiere, FOX
I've just started catching up on this one on DVD, but I really like it so far.
Supernatural season 7 premiere, CW
My feelings about this one are somewhat mixed, but the hot brothers wearing lots of flannel always get me. (But I'm only on season 2, so don't expect weekly reviews any time soon.)
Blue Bloods season 2 premiere, CBS
This drama about several generations of a New York cop family is really good, and worth catching up on - you've only missed one season.
