Fall TV 2012

posted by Nell Minow

Every season now brings new television programs and returns of favorite series, but I grew up in the old days and for me the fall TV season is still the most exciting.  Here are some of the new shows that look especially intriguing:

Elementary This latest version of Sherlock Holmes is set in modern times and Dr. Watson is played by Lucy Liu.  Sherlock is Jonny Lee Miller.

Emily Owens, M.D. Mamie Gummer, who looks just like her mother, Meryl Streep, was terrific on “The Good Wife,” and I am looking forward to seeing her as a young doctor in this medical drama.

Malibu Country The premise is not promising — woman leaves her cheating husband to start over — but this one stars Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, so I hope it’s worthy of them.

The Mindy Project Mindy Kaling, who co-wrote and appeared on “The Office,” created and stars in this new series about a doctor who has a soft spot for romantic comedy.
