Drama for Mama: Which new TV show has you hooked?

OK, which of the new shows have you hooked?

We enjoyed the Suburgatory pilot. And Whitney and Up All Night were given the thumbs up by NBC for the season. Based on what we’ve seen so far, we agree that they’re fun additions to our TV lineup.

As for dramas, Shannon has good reviews for Prime Suspect and Person of Interest. Gwen has been tuning in to watch Pan AmUnforgettable and Revenge. And we’re both big fans of The Good Wife on CBS, which is now in its third season.

You probably heard that The Playboy Club was canceled after only three shows. Apparently, the viewer numbers were low and a very vocal group of people opposed this show’s link to a pornographic brand.

Simon Cowell’s new show The X Factor got lots of hype but we were not impressed with the first episode. It was painful to watch, so it’ll have to get a lot better before we give it any more of our free time.

If you haven’t found any new shows you like yet, the good news is that there are still a few more shows to debut. For those of you who liked the first season of The Walking Dead, the new season starts Oct. 16 on AMC. (Note that this show is definitely NOT for kids.)

The new drama Grimm (inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales) will debut on Oct. 28.

Once Upon a Time, a modern fairytale from two of the writers of Lost, will debut on ABC on Sunday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m.

And here are a few shows that aren’t new this season but are still worth some TV time, if you ask us.

  • Parenthood
  • The Good Wife
  • House
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Mike and Molly
  • The Middle
  • Modern Family
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Private Practice

  1. Maybe I am biased because I live with a nerdy guy, but I tuned in to watch Big Bang Theory the other night after people told the Hubster it was hilarious, and found it to be a show full of stupid stereotypes that aren’t even realistic enough to be funny. I mean, I TOTALLY think nerds and geeks and their ilk can be VERY funny, and say the goofiest things, but it was so over-done. My 2 cents…

    I tend to avoid network t.v. My must-sees are on Bravo, Lifetime, HGTV, the History Channel and Travel Channel. :)
