13 New Shows That Are Worth A Look

1. Bing Bang Theory – Anyone who has ever been or dated a computer nerd will love this one!

2. Pushing Daisies – I absolutely love this show. This is one of the most original shows I have seen in a long time. It’s fabulous!

3. Private Practice – The first week it wasn’t great, but it’s getting stronger as it continues. I love Kate Walsh, and I keep watching because Taye Diggs has to take his shirt off one of these days!

4. Bionic Woman – Since this is on at the same time as Private Practice, I have only seen it twice, but I did like it. I just wish it were on at a different time.

5. Dirty Sexy Money – This is one of my favorite shows of the new season. But then again, I would watch Donald Sutherland in just about anything. I wouldn’t care if he was reading nursery rhymes for an hour.

6. Back To You – Kelsey Grammar and Patricia Heaton – you can’t go wrong there.

7. Moonlight – Okay, I just love vampire shows!

8. Women’s Murder Club – I absolutely love the James Patterson books, and this new series does not disappoint. This one is awesome!!

9. Journeyman – My husband keeps comparing this to Quantam Leap, which I never watched, but I like this Journeyman.

10. Samantha Who? – I have this DVR’d. I watched the first five minutes, and it made me laugh hysterically.

11. Carpoolers – It won’t last, but it was cute.

12. Big Shots – I watched this last week on mute. I have no idea what it’s about, but there are really hot guys in it. I’ll watch it again.

13. Singing Bee – I’m a sucker for game shows, and I don’t know why I find people singing horribly off key so entertaining.

I have been watching #2,3 5 and 12 and I think I'm going to give the womens murder club a try, I just keep forgetting to watch it.

Happy TT! :)

I've had Pushing Daisies on in the background but it hasn't grabbed me enough to concentrate on it fully. I think Bionic Woman is becoming a great show; it started out kind slow but grows stronger each week.

If folks watch only one new show this season, I recommend Life. It's fabulous!

Great list!

I've also started watching Pushing Daisies (love it), Bionic Woman (guilty pleasure), and Journeyman (wonderful). Thankfully, they can all be watched for free on and because I never seem to watch new episodes the first time they're aired.

Enjoy! Happy TT

There are so much to choose from with the new crop of fall shows. I too am really enjoying "Pushing Daisies" and "Bionic Woman". In regards to "Pushing Daisies", the creator of the show (Bryan Fuller) also created "Dead Like Me" and co-created "Wonderfalls". If you haven't seen either of these shows, you should check them out if you can.

OMG! How do you watch that many?! My only new show is Private Practice and I really like it! =)

Nicholas said...

Haven't seen any of those yet, but time travel and semi-robotic women seem a bit juvenile.

I heard pushing daisies was good... I just don't want to get caught up in another show I HAVE to watch!! :x My poor TiVo will be worn out :)

Big Bang Theory is funny!
I didn't like Pushing Daisys. I watched the first 10 minutes of the pilot, and just didn't think it was that good. My mom says I didn't give it enough time, so I will check it out again next week.
Happy TT!

Ooh! I love good t.v.! I "taped" Pushing Daisies but haven't watched any yet! Now I wish I taped the others.

I haven't watched #1 or #2 yet but Private Practice is growing on me as well and I really like Journeyman so far too. I'll have to check out some of the others on your list! :)

Aline de Chevigny said...

LOL I don't watch any of those.


Sharon said...

I really enjoyed this. :)
I forgot about Back to You. I need to get that into the dvr.
I enjoy Carpoolers, but I agree-I don't think it'll last. :(

I watched Bionic Woman once, but couldn't get into it.

I like Journeyman a lot.

And YES to Private Practice. When will that shirt come off?! (though I do miss Kate Walsh on Grey's Anatomy)

Sadie said...

Journeyman is similar to Quantum Leap, but if your husband would like to have a discussion about how it's different, point him my way.

Also? You don't have Chuck on the list. Are you not watching Chuck? It's so cute! Plus the guy that plays Chuck is incredibly hot in real life, and I just know they'll un-dork him one of these episodes.

Unknown said...

Great list. I am watching some of these, when I find the time.

Head Gaggler said...

Lots of good shows there.

Sandee said...

I'll take your word for it Neila. I gave up watching movies or television a long time ago. Have a great TT. :)

Travis Cody said...

The only one I've watched is Journeyman, and that's only because I leave it on after Heroes so I can finish up my DWTS recap post.
