The New Fall TV Line-up 2011

By Ama Debrah

With the beginning of fall comes the changing of the leaves, cardigans, caramel apples, and the new fall TV schedule! Here are ten new shows that are sure to become your latest obsession.

2 Broke Girls

2 Broke Girls (Tuesdays at 8:30 P.M. on CBS)
Created by Michael Patrick King, the mastermind behind the beloved Sex and the City, 2 Broke Girls is being advertised as the hipster, working-class, Brooklyn-afied version of SATC.

Pan Am (Sundays at 10 P.M. on ABC)
Before airline flights became associated with styrofoam-like food and seating that makes a cattle car look roomy, there were the glamorous flight attendants of Pan Am airline, portrayed in this “airy” period drama.

Ringer (Tuesdays at 9 P.M. on the CW)
Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as a woman who takes on the identity of her wealthy twin sister after witnessing a murder in this dark thriller. Buffy fans, rejoice!

New Girl (Tuesdays at 9 P.M. on Fox)
Yes, it is Zooey Deschanel playing a klutzy, naïve, lovable, single girl again, but if it ain’t broke, why fix it?

The Secret Circle (Thursdays at 9 P.M. on The CW)
A show about how a girl who moves to a new town and realizes that she and some of her classmates have —gasp!— magical powers does look pretty lame. But The Secret Circle is adapted from a book series by the same person who wrote Vampire Diaries, which is pretty much a guarantee that it’ll become your new guilty pleasure.

Presenting the new Vampire Diaries. Get excited.

America’s Next Top Model All-Stars (Wednesdays at 9 P.M. on The CW)
Okay, so it might not be a new reality competition, but ANTM always entertains, even if it’s on its 17th cycle. And where else are you going learn how to “smeyes,” girl?

X-Factor (Thursdays at 8 P.M. on Fox)
Watch dreams get crushed on the U.S. version of Simon Cowell’s ridiculously popular singing reality competition. Because, frankly, who watches American Idol anymore?

Up All Night (Wednesday at 8 P.M. on NBC)
Leave it to Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, and Maya Rudolph to make a show about a screaming infant actually enjoyable.

Charlie’s Angels (Thursdays at 8 P.M. on ABC)
Whether you’re a fan of the original show or the two kick-butt movies, Charlie’s Angels is sure to delight old and new fans alike.

Person of Interest (Thursdays at 9 P.M. on CBS)

Charlie’s Angels, kickin’ it old school.

From mega-producer JJ Abrams and Jonathan Nolan, comes a new detective drama. More importantly, this was the show that was filming on Riverside and 117th at the end of last semester. Plus, it’s Ben from Lost, guys!

Ama is a sophomore at Barnard and Food Editor for The Nine Ways of Knowing. Her favorite TV show is Sex and the City.
