Hello my friends...

I bet some of you are wanting to know what's on this fall? What's new? What's coming back? And What isn't?  Well here's a sneak peak of the top ten New comedies to watch this fall!  I will have a full report on all the new, old, cancelled shows over the next few weeks!

The top ten most anticipated comedies this fall are:

#10 Us & Them

Jason Ritter plays Gavin a neurotic personality who has never been in love.  Alexis Bledel plays Stacey previously engaged and very witty.  Gavin and Stacey have been flirting over the internet for six months and have finally decided to meet, with his crazy family and her overbearing uncle, it is not how will this couple get together its how they will stay together.  Set to premiere mid-season this fall on FOX.

#9 Back In The Game

Terry Cannon Jr (Maggie Lawson) was an all star softball player until life threw her a couple curve balls of its own; a baby, a lost college sponsorship and a loser for a husband.  Striking out on her own, Terry and her son Danny (Griffin Gluck) move in with her estranged father, Terry Sr. aka "The Cannon" (James Caan).  The Cannon is an opinionated, beer-guzzling, ex-athlete, who never quite made the cut as a single father or professional baseball player.  But this family can't stay away from the game of baseball, as Danny wants to join Little League, but has no baseball skills at all.  When all the kids with no skills get cut a wealthy neighbor offers to finance a team of all the mistfits, which Terry reluctantly offers to coach.  A heartwarming comedy of a family coming together begins this fall at 8:30pm on ABC.

#8 Mom

Starring the always hilarious Allison Janney and Anna Faris as Mother and Daughter.  From the hit maker Chuck Lorre comes a new comedy sure to be a hit.  Newly sober single mom Christy (Anna Faris) struggles to raise two children in a world of temptations and pitfalls and testing her sobriety the most is her formally estranged mother (Allison Janney) who is eager to share passive aggresive insights into her daughters many mistakes.  Watch this roller coaster unfold every Monday this fall beginning September 23rd at 6:30pm EST/9:30 PST on CBS.

#7 Welcome To The Family

A comedic Romeo and Juliet of sorts but without the dreadful ending.  Two young kids just graduating from highschool, both a family first, become pregnant and end up getting married, bringing two very different familites together in a way they never imagined.  Dan and Miguel, the father's of these young kids who already have a history, do not see eye to eye are forced to figure out way to get along for the kids and the baby on the way.  Series premiere Thursday, October 3rd at 530pm EST/830pm PST on NBC.

#6 About A Boy

Loosly based off the hit movie 'About A Boy', this new comedy centers around Will Freeman (David Walton) a man who wrote a hit song and was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes.  Now he's single and ready to mingle until a charming 11 year old boy and his mother move in next door.  Now this kid, who wants to be his best friend, makes him a little uneasy untill he realizes women find single dads are hot.  So they strike a deal: marcus will pretend to be will's son and in return Marcus is allowed to chill at will's house, playing ping-pong and gorging on steaks, something Marcus' vegan mother would never allow.  An interesting take on comedy, starting mid-season on NBC.

#5 Dads

Honor they father.

Way easier said than done, especially when your dad's broke, living in your house and ruining your life.  Two successful guys Eli (Seth Green) and Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) are the co-founders of a successful video game company.- childhood best friends - now in their mid-30's whose relatively stable lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck fathers move in.  Loaded with an all-star cast this is sure to be a new Tuesday night hit, premiering this fall on FOX.

#4 Enlisted

Sergeant Pete Hill (Geoff Stults) was on a path for a huge military career until one mistake overseas got him booted stateside to Fort McGee, the base in Florida where his two younger brothers are stationed.  Now, as head of their platoon he must serve as big brother and military boss.  Corporal Derrick Hill (Chris Lowell) is the middle brother, smart and sarcastic, he likes to stir up trouble and doesn't really care about being a soldier.  And the youngest, private Randy Hill (Parker Young) loves being in the army, he's hyper-enthusiastic, hyper-goofy, just hyper, and wants to b the gung-ho "GI JOE" military ideal.  A military-set family comedy, centering on three brothers who, when the best of the best are sent overseas, stay behind to try to keep the base in order.  Between hijacking tanks, inventing new drinking games and accidentally blowing up a few trucks, they will inadvertently discover the key to strengthening their long-lost childhood bonds.  Three hot brothers, one army and absolutely no fighting starts Thursday nights at 6:30pm EST / 9:30pm late fall on FOX.
***even if this comedy doesn't appease me, the view will be nice ;)**

#3 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

From the Emmy Award-winning write producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation) and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg (SNL) and Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age and Homicide: Life on the Street), Brooklyn Nine-Nine is about what happens when a talented but carefree detective gets a new captain with a lot to prove. Also working cases in Brooklyn's 99th precinct is Sergeant TERRY JEFFORDS (Terry Crews, "Bridesmaids," "Everybody Hates Chris"), a linebacker of a man who's lost his nerve, not because he's a wimp, but because a year ago his wife had twin baby girls - Cagney and Lacey - and he can't imagine not seeing them grow up. Detective CHARLES BOYLE (Joe Lo Truglio, "Wreck-It Ralph," "Superbad"), who idolizes Jake and is the precinct's workhorse; he's not that brilliant, he's not physically gifted but he tries harder than anyone else. Charles pines for Detective ROSA DIAZ (Stephanie Beatriz, "Modern Family," "The Closer"), with whom he stands no chance at all. Rosa is simultaneously tough, sexy and scary as hell. She's vocally opinionated about everything. And cleaning up everyone's mess is GINA LINETTI (Chelsea Peretti, "Parks and Recreation," "Kroll Show"), the eccentric, civilian office manager who somehow gets involved in everyone's business.

Together, these tightly knit cops interrogate suspects, arrest perps and solve murders. But, ultimately, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is a workplace comedy that's not really about the job. It's about the men and women behind the badge - singing karaoke, grabbing a beer and hitting on each other - all while protecting the fine people of Brooklyn. Would you feel safe? Find out Tuesdays this fall on FOX.

#2 The Crazy Ones
Robin Williams returns to television as a renowned advertising genius whose unorthodox methods would get him fired, if he weren't the boss and heading a powerful agency with the biggest clients and brands in the world.  The office is staffed with an eclectic group, like their boss, intent on keeping his antics in check.  This includes his daughter (Sarah Michelle Gellar) who often questions her father's sanity while she tries to make a name for herself in the advertising world.  CBS has this one in the bag! A new comedy with Robin Williams, PLEASE he will keep us laughing and wanting more each week.  Premiering Thursday, September 26th at 6pm EST/9pm PST this fall on CBS.

Lastly The Number ONE, Most Anticipated Hit Comedy of The 2013 Fall Line Up Is........

#1 The Micheal J Fox Show

NBC has hit a home run signing Micheal J Fox to a new comedy show starring himself and proving to everyone he's "Still Got It".
The beloved Micheal J Fox has returned to television as one of New York's most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox), who put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's. But now five years later with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless it just might be time for him to get back to work and secretly his whole family is on board.
Having never wanted Mike to leave in the first place, his old boss Harris Green (Wendell Pierce) jumped at the chance to get him back on TV. The trick, as it's always been, was to make Mike think it was his idea. After many failed attempts, Mike's family, anxious to see him out of the house, finally succeeded in getting him to "run into" Green. Now their plan is in motion. He'll be back to juggling home, family and career, just like the old days - only better.  You know with Micheal J Fox at the helm this is sure to be the biggest hit television has seen on Thursday's in years, raising the bar for Thursday night comedies.  The series premiere, battling The Crazy Ones on CBS, starts Thursday, September 26th at 6pm EST/9pm PST on NBC.
