*shows with an asterisk are Kelly’s most anticipated/favourites
What We’re Watching
(or at least taking for a test drive)
* United States of Tara (Showtime, Sun 10:00)
Created by Steven Spielberg, writen by Diablo Cody, starring Toni Collette, John Corbett and Rosemary DeWitt- perfect.
*Dollhouse (FOX, Fri 9:00)
Joss Whedon is a genius.
Better off Ted (ABC, Wed 8:30)
We love Portia, Andrea Anders is pretty funny and it looks like a lot of fun.
Castle (ABC, Mon 10:00)
NATHAN FILLION!!! that is all.
*Cupid (ABC, premieres March 31, Tues 10:00)
We need a replacement for our dearly departed Valentine, and Bobby Cannavale is always charming. Oh, and this version doesn’t have Jeremy Piven- always a plus.
Harper’s Island (CBS, premieres April 9, Thurs 10:00)
Out of sheer love for Chris Gorham this long shot will get at least a one week trial from My TV.
*Kings (NBC, Sun 8:00)
It looks damn cool and there’s a need for dramas that aren’t sci-fi or procedural.
In The Motherhood (ABC, premieres March 26, Thurs 8:00)
It was a web hit. Hopefully it won’t be too stupid. The comedy pedigree in the cast deserves our respect though.
Parks and Recreation (NBC, premieres April 9, Thurs 8:30)
We’ll follow Amy Poehler anywhere, though this doesn’t promise to be a favourite.
*Party Down (Starz, premieres Tomorrow, Fri 10:30)
Rob Thomas writes good stuff! Also: Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen, Jane Lynch and Lizzy Caplan. Plus amazing guest stars like Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring and Rob Corddry.
Southland (NBC, premieres April 9, Thurs 10:00)
Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie) is back on TV! How could we not watch that? Also: former West Wing showrunner John Wells is at the helm.
The Unusuals (ABC, premieres April 8, Wed 10:10)
Amber Tamblyn + Adam Goldberg make up for our left over Michael hatred that prevents us from ever really embracing Harold Perrineau.
