Shows premiering tonight include:
CSI: NY 7–8 p.m. (CBS)
This is another show that I like to catch-up on via on demand. It's my favorite of the CSIs, and—unsurprisingly—I prefer it because of the superior cast dynamic. (If the theme for last year was crime dramas, this year I'm all about the casts.) It's a good show to have on when I'm working on projects that demand most of my attention, but I want something to entertain the other parts.
Fringe 8–9 p.m. (FOX)
I'm really hoping that the showrunners behind Fringe, in this, it's final season, really pull out all the stops. Since they know the end is near, they should have the time to wrap things up and provide a decent amount of fan satisfaction, while leaving a few things open-ended; it is Fringe, afterall. One thing I'll say—if Olivia and Peter don't end up with a Happily Ever After (at least as happy as it can be in a crazy universe like theirs), I will be piiiisssssed.
Also on tonight, in it's regular spot after airing on Mondays for a few weeks:
Grimm 8–9 p.m. (NBC)
The special effects on this show are the worst. Nick, the main character, is utterly boring. The plots are a little too easily wrapped up in each episode. And yet, I like this show. I love Monroe, the sidekick Blutbad (werewolf). I think his relationship with Rosalie is adorable and sweet. And, I'm curious about the whole underlying business with the police chief/Prince of the Wesen that ran throughout the season. I am totally capable of admitting that I am easily sucked in to some not-so-great TV.
I feel as though the new shows premiering this year were somewhat lacking. Looking back over the week, I realize that I haven't added many new shows to my "must watch" list. Are you feeling the same? Or am I missing something good?
Don't forget—there will be a special post tomorrow covering shows premiering in the next few weeks (including all of the good CW shows), as well as a few interesting ones that will be airing mid-season.
