My DVR Is Drooping From All This Added Weight

September 11, 2009

The premiere season is upon us, people! Here’s a round-up of the new shows I’m most excited about:

1. Community – NBC, premieres Thursday, 09/17, 8:30 p.m.

I, along with 3/4 of the female population, have a hankering for Joel McHale, current host of The Soup. In Community, he plays a lawyer forced to attend community college when it’s discovered his degree is phony.

One of my favorite exchanges:

“I thought you had a bachelor’s from Columbia.”

“Now I have to get one from America.”

It costars Chevy Chase and a host of comedians you’ve seen elsewhere but have never learned their names.

2. Flash Forward – ABC, premieres Thursday, 09/24, 7:00 p.m.

For 2 minutes, 17 seconds, the entire earth blacks out and catches a glimpse of themselves 6 months in the future. Some are thrilled at what they see, some are confused, and some are terrified that they saw nothing. Will they try to change their future? Will their efforts cause the very future they’re trying to change? How very “Lost.” Check it out.

3. Glee – FOX, Wednesdays @ 8:00 p.m.

Oh, how I love this show. True, they lay the cheese on pretty thick, but they make up for it with the hilarious and diabolical cheerleading coach, the adorable red-headed OCD counselor,  and the insanely talented cast of teenagers.

4. The Biggest Loser – NCB, premieres Tuesday, 7:00 p.m.

Okay, so it’s not a new show, BUT my friend Holly actually knows one of the contestants this cycle! Which makes it even better than a new show. His name is Sean Algaier.  You can meet him here.

5. Modern Family – ABC, premieres Wednesday, 09/23, 8:00 p.m.

ABC sums it up as “One Big Straight Gay Multi-cultural Traditional Happy Family Comedy,” and I really can’t do any better. Check it out here.

We’ll see if they all live up to my expectations. Fingers crossed (and legs propped up on the coffee table).
