Fall is the most wonderful time of year. The schools are back in session, the storms prevent Phoenicians from commenting on the dry heat, and the leaves turn colors in pictures from other parts of the country where trees grow. However, the best part of the season comes somewhere between the new football season and Halloween, and that is the debut of the fall TV season. The long drought of summer television is now approaching its conclusion, and all of our favorite network shows will finally be returning to the airwaves. Even better, in addition to all of the old, familiar shows that we all know and love, there will be several new series premiering. Here are 10 that stood out from the pack and seem to be worth checking out.

Sleepy Hollow
Inspired by the classic story by Washington Irving, this supernatural mystery/action show follows the adventures of Ichabod Crane, a soldier from the Revolutionary War who is pulled through time to 2013, where he must team with a young police officer to stop the murderous rampage of the Headless Horseman. Expect supernatural mysteries and a different view of American history than you learned about in high school when the show premieres September 16 on Fox.

From Seth McFarlane, Alec Sulkin, and Wellesley Wild, the creators of the Family Guy, this comedy stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as two successful 30-something friends whose lives are thrown into chaos when their dads come to live with them. The premise seems a bit thin, but the talented cast makes up for it; in addition to Green and Ribisi, this show also includes comedy legend Martin Mull and Emmy-nominee Peter Riegert as the two fathers. Dads premieres September 17 on Fox.

Not a bad list! I would add Masters of Sex to this as well. Stoked on few of these.


Must watch?  If that's it, I sure as hell don't want to know about the worst.
