    The TV Lineup for Fall 2007

    So Herman and I go on the Internet a couple of nights ago as I had a thought in my mind I could not shake. I wanted to know about the fall lineup to see if my favorite shows were returning and what would be new.

    I first went to ABC.com, and was delighted to find out they had nine new shows slated for the fall season.

    I had seen some promos on TV. As far as I can tell, there seems to be a new show on every day of the week starting in September. Mondays a new show called Samantha Who?, was renamed after initially called “Sam I Am” about a woman who loses her memory.

    ABC’s whole lineup seems much more to my taste than the other networks. I’m not into crime dramas, CSIs or the pseudo-real life reality shows.

    Tuesday night offers a new show called Carpoolers, which is about guys who commute together and later that night is my favorite show, Boston Legal.

    Wednesday nights drops my summer favorite, Will Traveler (boo!) and brings on Private Practice and Dirty, Sexy Money. I reserve my opinion on those, but the trailers look good.

     Thursdays offers the staple Grey’s Anatomy followed by Big Shots, which stars Michael Vartan, Christopher Titus, Joshua Malina and Dylan McDermott.

    Fridays brings back Men in Trees at a new time slot at 8 p.m. followed by the Women’s Murder Club.

    Sunday is my tried and true Brothers and Sisters I’m glad to see came back and then there are the mid-season replacements in 2008.

    Misguided, Cashmere Mafia and Eli Stone all have interesting premises.

    The reason I’m interested in all these shows is because they are human interest stories with actors I really like. Donald Sutherland will be in Dirty, Sexy Money and he is one of my favorite veteran actors. Also, the shows seem to be more about relationships than action, which I prefer.

    You can research any of these shows on the Internet, some with trailers to get a taste of what’s coming.

    To be fair, I also looked at CBS.com and NBC.com, but those shows didn’t appeal to me. Fox has House coming back, which is one of my favorites as well. Dr, Gregory House is an angry, irreverent but brilliant diagnostician fighting his own disability.

    Happy viewing.
