It's the First Official Night of Fall TV!

SyFy snuck in on Friday the 13th with the premiere of Haven, but the official start of the fall television season will kick off tonight thanks to Fox and ABC.

Up first we'll have the season premiere of Bones. Rest assured, while the crusading duo of Bones and Booth didn't have the best ending last season, things will be looking up for them this fall and there will be a wedding.

The series premiere of Sleepy Hollow follows Bones and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Imagine a world in which nobody knew about the short story and the legend of Sleepy Hollow, toss in a heaping helping of the apocalypse, underscored by two leads with amazing chemistry and an easy banter that makes the hour slip far too fast. I'll be reviewing the show on TVFanatic.com, so meet me there after the show for a full rundown.

Finally, ABC delivers up a new cast of "celebrities" to dance the night away with the Season 17 premiere of Dancing with the Stars. The anticipation is high with such stars as Brant Daugherty, Snooki, Valerie Harper and Bill Nye the Science Guy.

While the fall season is just beginning, the summer season is coming to an end as Under the Dome attempts to wrap up a rather scattered freshman chapter by revealing the dome's purpose (really??) as well as tying up some other storylines, while setting up the series for next summer, as the series was renewed rather early in the game.

What will you be tuning in to see? Enjoy these little spurts of TV goodness, because next week you'll be beaten over the head as the premieres come hot 'n heavy and your DVR will be on overload!

Lifetime's Witches of East End - A Video Promo I Missed


Is anybody else as excited about the upcoming series The Witches of East End on Lifetime as me? It looks like it will have all the soapy goodness we have come to expect of Lifetime original series, blended with a bit of Charmed, a dash of Practical Magic and what I would have expected if Anne Rice's The Witching Hour had come to life along with the Three Sisters Trilogy of books by Nora Roberts. Yes, that's quite an amalgamation tossed into the witches cauldron, and that's why it's so exciting to think that we'll get to watch it play out with such a talented and attractive cast.
