Not a whole lot I am looking forward to, although I am intrigued by Arrow....

Cat sitter has been a great show for the past several years.. I'll think I'll let it keep running

I'm interested in Revolution, but it seems more like a concept that would go over better in a movie or mini-series format. I'll probably give it a shot. I definitely have a much better idea about what is coming to NBC than I normally do thanks to the Olympics. The new Matthew Perry show is another I'll give a shot, since I generally like him (I watched every episode of Studio 60).

Otherwise, I watch so many shows on alternate networks like USA and TNT that run in the off-seasons that the fall premieres have less impact than they used to. I used to wait impatiently for that edition of the TV Guide to come every year and pick out the new shows to watch. Not so much any more.

Saw the trailer for Revolution this week at The Dark Knight Rises. Looks like it could be a good one.

I'm holding out for Season 4 of Archer next January!

Right now I'm with @tarasadies. I'm not looking forward to anything. Maybe if I hear about some new shows I'll be more interested, but right now I'm bleh. I don't even look forward to any old ones coming back.

Because I'm a dork: Doctor Who, and if I can find a way of watching it, the Red Dwarf reboot with most of the original actors.

So excited for Dexter. The writers on Dexter are fantastic.

@mkdr: I'm with you on this. I used to wait anxiously for the new series (and old favorites) to start each fall on the three major networks, but with the larger selection of networks with their own series, AND the varied schedules of series, I haven't paid nearly as much attention to the fall start-ups lately. (Seriously, some of the summer series are among the best television out there!)

Thanks for posting the question. I will have to watch the comments so I will know what to look forward to viewing!

So far, as far as new shows I've seen trailers for, I can only think of Revolution looking good.

But, to be fair, I don't watch a lot of live TV, so I don't see a lot of commercials/trailers.

Nothing that I have seen so far.

@mkdr: You and I may be two of only nine people who watched and liked Studio 60; I was quite disappointed when it was cancelled. (But then, I also liked Cop Rock, when I was evidently one of three people who liked it.)

I'm also in total agreement about the many series shown on TNT and USA; they're among the most creative shows on the air these days and most are far more enjoyable than the major-network productions. I'm very much looking forward to the follow-up series to The Closer, which will apparently retain nearly all of the The Closer's characters.

@belyndag: I agree, some of the summer series are the best - I find myself anxiously waiting for them more than anything I think. I also second your thanks for the question being asked - I will also be looking for some good shows to watch based on the comments.

Revolution is the only show that seems interesting at all.

Community. It will be interesting to see how the show moves on without Dan Harmon.

Six seasons and a movie!

@lavikinga: I am with you on Doctor Who (last I heard it was going to be aired the last week in Aug) and Red Dwarf X.

I am also looking forward to the return of Castle.

Homeland. Season 2: Sept. 30, 2012.

Revolution has caught my attention as well. I'm not waiting for the fall though. Currently enjoying the return of Warehouse 13, although I hope the next episode is an improvement over the 2nd, and Bunheads (sucker for snappy patter). Curious about Where How I Met Your Mother is going to go this season.

@magic cave: Count me among the few that enjoyed both Studio 60 and the largely forgotten Cop Rock. But I am an easy sell. I watch a lot of television, and I like just about all of it. The only shows I watch and don't much care for are the handful I watch with my best friend on the weekends because he likes them, or the ones I save for dry spells when they are better than nothing. I watch TV while doing art in the evenings after work, the shows help me stay rooted to the flow of time so I don't look up and find it to be 4am and have to be up at 6am for work. They also keep me from getting so absorbed in what I am doing that I forget to feed myself or the dog, or get a headache from clenching my teeth or sitting in the same position for hours. They provide an anchor to the real world.

Looking forward to How I Met Your Mother. It is a show I enjoy with characters that for whatever reason I can relate to. And since it looks like it will be the final season maybe we will finally find out who is the Mother!

vote-for3vote-against

Doctor Who
Dexter
The Mentalist
Homeland
Person of Interest
Suburgatory
The Big Bang Theory

Probably some others that don't spring to mind immediately.

Also, things have changed greatly in the last few years and the Fall TV shows have become less and less important (or more precisely, other "TV seasons" now exist). Quite frankly, I have no real idea what new stuff is coming as I haven't been watching the Olympics on NBC and almost never watch commercials (I strip them out of stuff before watching, or skip them with a single button-press).

I'm currently enjoying Warehouse 13 and will start watching Weeds in another week or two (Weeds is one of the shows I "bank" and then watch in one or two marathon sessions).

Dexter and The Walking Dead. Revolution looks interesting.

vote-for3vote-against

I am trying not to get excited about any new broadcast shows anymore. Been burnt too many time by fickle networks dropping good shows and not giving new shows a chance. Examples firefly, heros, invasion, the unit,Jericho just to name a few.

I try to watch more pay channels like hbo's series because they don't cancel on a whim. Looking forward to new seasons of boardwalk empire and treme. I love my hbogo to catch up on all my series and movies on my Xbox. Too bad luck was so unlucky with their horses because it was well acted and written. I like Dexter and homeland and would pay for showtime if they had shogo or something like hbogo.

I look forward to watching the first two episodes of Revolution and then, in the tradition of The Event, Flash Forward, etc., completely losing interest.

Thursday night football, Sunday night football, Monday night football, and any other NFL football game on TV. Of course, all of that goes out the window if online real money poker is legalized in the US.

@ki4rxm: If Rick and Lori can't keep Carl inside a prison, I'll know that they are trying to kill him.

@emilyb0902: At this rate, I can't say that I'd blame them. Although, also at this rate either Lori or Rick might give up and kill their other half.
