Fall TV is Back!

It's that time again - the new fall TV lineup is headed for a flat screen near you. Although it's still not clear whether or not The Game will be picked up by BET, the rumblings on various internet outlets have given us who loved the show hope.

While we wait to find out if our beloved characters, Derwin and Melanie (The Game) will return, here are three new shows that will be worth watching!


Synopsis: A comedy about a former NFL hot shot who learns that even though you can always go home again, doing so might be more difficult than you think.

Starring: Michael Strahan, Darryl "Chill" Mitchell, Carl Weathers, and CCH Pounder

Air Date: Fridays beginning Sept. 25th 8:30 (EST), Fox

The Cleveland Show

Synopsis: A new animated series that follows everyone’s favorite soft-spoken neighbor, Cleveland Brown (Mike Henry), to his hometown in Virginia as he settles down with his high school sweetheart, her unruly kids and his own 14-year-old son, Cleveland Jr. (Kevin Michael Richardson).

Starring: Sanaa Lathan, Reagan Gomez-Preston, and Kevin Michael Richardson

Air Date: Sundays begining Sept. 23rd (8:30pm EST), Fox

The Brian McKnight Show

Synopsis: A syndicated weekly one-hour entertainment showcase. Brian will play host to celebrity interviews, round table discussions and musical performances. Shot at various locations in and around Los Angeles, the series will allow audiences to enjoy a view of the entertainment capital of the world.

Air Date: Debuting the week of September 21st (Check local listings for stations and times), Litton Entertainment

For those reality TV buffs like me, the return of America's Next Top Model and So You Think You Can Dance will also return this month.

America's Next Top Model

Synopsis: This season all of the aspiring models are between 5'3'' and 5'7'' - not exactly runway height, but we'll see how these shorties stack up.

Air Date: Wednesdays beginning September 9th (8 EST), The CW

What shows are you looking forward to watching this season? Are you a reality TV, comedy or drama fan?

I like drama and sitcoms! I'm a Gossip Girl and 90210 junkie, and I really really hope The Game is picked up!

a few years ago, i would have never said this but reality tv is almost all i watch. i love gossip girl, heroes, and law & order re-runs. i faithfully watch project runway, real housewives (atl, ny, nj), big brother. i catch tiny and toya most times and i'll look at top model ever now and again. mostly toward the end.

I must admit, I do enjoy reality tv from time to time but nothing holds my interest like a good real life murder. I'm sorry and so ashamed but it's true. I can't help it but I'm intrigued by who did it, why, how they got busted and what's their punishment! I've seen so many of these shows, I think I could solve a crime single handedly! Seriously!

I'm definitely hoping that BET picks up The Game. I plan to watch The Clevelands but I'm not sure of any other new shows that I'll watch. However, I agree wtih K-Bear. I LOVE First 48!

Tyra will remix her show a million but I will check in on the tiny models from time to time. I had not heard about that fox show so I will tune in for that.

@K-Bear - I love those real-life crime shows too. I watch Snapped every Saturday morning. I stopped for a while because I was having nightmares after all that violence! LOL

Can't wait for America's next top model, Melrose Place, So you think you can dance and the new talk shows by George Lopez and Wanda Sykes. Right now I'm loving Project Runway and Wendy Williams.

I hope the Game is picked up, it was such a cute show! I usually try to watch the new fall shows to see if I like them. Seems like a good line up.
