This week has a lot more good shows debuting compared to last week. There is a lot to recommend and hard to pick one as the pick of the week since I’ve seen Fringe and it is very good, but I’m going with True Blood as the pick since it is produced by Alan Ball and looks like HBO is finally getting back to its classic good shows after a run of pretty lames ones last year.
Pick of the Week
Premieres: Sunday, Sep 7
Starring: Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Nelson Ellis
Synopsis: Scientists have found a blood synthetic that vampires can use so humans are safe and vampires can live out in the open. Not everyone buys that they won’t be attacked though, especially religious folks. A waitress, who has her own special gift of hearing everyone’s thoughts, is thrilled by a vampire that comes into her diner since his thoughts are actually closed off to her. She finds his mysteriousness sexy.
My Take: I love Alan Ball. I loved Six Feet Under and I love vampires, so this seems like a natural show for me to watch.

I’ll continue to recap shows the week they premiere, but I thought I should still focus on the new shows that will be premiering this upcoming fall season so you can figure out if you want to add any new shows to your viewing repertoire.
Keep in mind that CW is doing something weird this season. They outsourced their entire Sunday night line-up, so even though it is still CW, it is almost like it is another company running Sunday night. There are no trailers for these shows and I haven’t seen a promotional push for any of them by the CW. There is only a tiny bit of info on the shows on the CW site, but you have to search for it. None of the shows are listed in their Fall Preview section. It’s all very odd.
CW New Fall Shows
Premieres: Tue, Sep 2
Starring: Shenae Grimes, Rob Estes, Tristan Wilds, AnnaLynne McCord, Dustin Milligan, Ryan Eggold, Jessica Stroup, Michael Steger, Lora Loughlin, Tabitha Wilson, Jennie Garth
Synopsis: It is Beverly Hills 90210: The Next Generation. A family has moved out to Beverly Hills from the midwest to take care of their grandmother and the dad has taken a job as a principal at West Beverly Hills High. Kelly Taylor is working at the high school as a guidance counselor.
My Take: TV Guide has listed it as one of their picks, but the pilot was unavailable for review. I used to watch the original the first couple of seasons before it was too dumb to continue. Well, I guess it was always dumb, but I graduated high school and started watching other stuff. I have no desire to watch this version, especially with the very annoying actress AnnaLynne McCord from Nip/Tuck.
