Looking forward to laughing my socks off?! Who’s with me?! I love September because all the new shows start, some good, some bad, and ideally many that will be hilarious. The funny ladies are out in full force on all the studio networks this fall, and here are a few (in my opinion) to be eagerly anticipated:
New Girl (Fox) Drum roll please!!!!!!! Starring Zooey Deschanel (If you don’t love her, I quite frankly don’t love you) as a woman who moves in with three single male roommates. (I don’t even need to talk about it anymore because I’m sure it will be great. Love her, that much.)
Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 (ABC) Plot: a naive young woman comes to New York City and ends up with a trouble-making party-girl roommate.
Yeah it doesn’t sound that amazing, but on the plus side it is starring Krysten Ritter (whom I liked as the goth girl in 27 dresses) and James Van Der Beek (wait–is James really a plus? hmmm…I liked Dawson’s Creek as much that the next Midwestern raised woman, but it wasn’t because he was my favorite character or anything…)
Suburgatory (ABC) Satirical look at life in the suburbs. Typical “New York City girl” moves to a cookie-cutter community only to discover that life in the ‘burbs is more frightening than any horror movie that she’s ever seen.
Visually this show looks like a winner, the cinematic quality is top notch. That I support. I may not loooove it, but who am I to not give a good looking show a chance? Forget attractive casting, I’m was a film and media major, I appreciate camera work. So we’ll see.
Are you there, Vodka? It’s me, Chelsea (NBC). Inspired by Handler’s best-selling memoir. Focuses on the lives of a group of 20-somethings who live and work together with a very outspoken young woman.
They had me at Chelsea Handler… 🙂
Whitney (NBC) Whitney Cummings, of Chelsea Lately comedic fame, stars in this hilarious look at the modern love of a happily unmarried couple.
I could only be more excited about this show if you paid me! Marketing success for them–haha!
And last but by no means least, on my list of must see TV, we’ve got the new Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph (and now) Nick Cannon prime time comedy Up All Night (NBC)
The plot focuses on characters Reagan Brinkley and her stay at home hubby Chris struggle to navigate life with a newborn. Reagan has returned to work, battling sleep deprivation and other unexpected surprises that come with raising a baby while tending to the needs of her childless, self-serving boss Ava.
Sounds like a winner of cast here, and if these commercials are any indication of delight to come–BRING IT ON!! (and I don’t even like babies…lol)
