2010 fall TV premiere dates

Culled from various generally reliable sources. All times are Pacific and Eastern. People in the flyover time zones probably already know that everything comes on an hour earlier there. Besides, you have DVRs, so what difference does it make what time it’s actually on? Asterisks (*) (that’s what an asterisk looks like) indicate new shows.

“Parks and Recreation” and “Greek” come back in January. “V” is sometime in November. “Friday Night Lights” will re-air on NBC next spring after premiering on DirecTV this fall. “Lost” got canceled.

    I know it’s not on until January, but you really need to add Archer (on FX) to your must-watch list. Peurile fun… with wit!

  2. Rhett Says:

    “Lost got cancelled” is a GREAT joke!

  3. momma snider Says:

    Burn Notice is supposed to be sometime in November. I like that show. I wish I was shaped like Gabrielle Anwar.

  4. Jason Wright Says:

    Why is Hell’s Kitchen listed twice? It’s September 22 and November 10. Are they going to have 2 seasons this fall?

  5. MattW Says:

    Eric, If you end up following a new show for more than about 5 episodes, could you put up a brief summary, and whether or not you recommend it? I’d like to hear your opinion about pretty much anything that comes out of tv/movie-land, but a snippet after a few episodes would be better than nothing.

    These are now my new 3 favorite words.
