Fall TV: What are you excited to watch?

Summer wasn't even over yet when the new seasons of Top Chef and Mad Men began. Now that the fall TV season is beginning, what shows have you been waiting all summer to see again (or for the first time)? Glee, Melrose Place, 90210, Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and So You Think You Can Dance have recently premiered new seasons.

It's always hard to add new shows to watch. I've missed the first two episodes of Glee but plan to catch up by watching them online at Hulu. Last year I wanted to catch the well-reviewed cop show Southland, but I never had time to fit in a viewing. This year I'll definitely try out Community. It helps that this show airs right after one of my favorites, The Office. Community premieres this Thursday along with The Office and Parks and Recreation.

Other shows that start new seasons this week include Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, and The Jay Leno Show on Monday, Biggest Loser on Tuesday, and Bones and Fringe on Thursday.

I'm excited that So You Think You Can Dance is on during the fall after another amazing season this summer. I'm also looking forward to the new season of How I Met Your Mother. The architecture course Ted is teaching has the future mother as one of its students! This is a very creative and hilarious show; the cast has wonderful chemistry. Certain shows I love I won't be able to see until 2010; Friday Night Lights first airs on DirecTV this fall before playing on NBC in the winter. The show I absolutely can't wait for, Lost, doesn't return until 2010.

Are any of the the new TV shows premiering this fall on your radar? Or are you just excited that football is on the air again?
