The slow rollout of the fall season continues this week with the premieres of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23. There’s also the probable series finale of The Thick of It as well as Halloween specials from Venture Bros. and Mockingbird Lane. Otherwise, we seem to be settling into the fall schedule. Before spotlighting this week’s fantastic Homeland, “Q&A” and welcoming author Robert. K Elder to the DVD Shelf for a look at the X-Files spinoff Millennium, we talk through our (rather extensive) week in TV.
This week, we try something new, grouping several of the shows together under the Tuesday Comedies (Ben and Kate, New Girl, Happy Endings, Don’t Trust the B—-), Thursday Comedies (30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Always Sunny, The League, Childrens Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV::), and Friday Genre Roundup (Mockingbird Lane, Grimm, Fringe) categories. Also on the docket this week are Parenthood, 30 for 30, Supernatural, Nashville, The Vampire Diaries, Last Resort, Person of Interest, The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Treme, The Voice, and Revolution.
