Entertainment Alley: Back to school…Back to work…Back to TV…

If you are like me, you could hardly wait for primetime television 2012 to return this fall, and there’s a lot to get excited about. Time to get that DVR ready. Fall television also means Sunday Night Football on NBC returns — sorry ladies, or football widows I should say. But in all honesty, the demos for football have changed over the course of time and now husbands and wives happily tune in together. Also returning this season is Showtime’s “Dexter,” CBS’s “The Good Wife” and on ABC, “Revenge” — all good shows that you can count on for quality entertainment. Showtime also brings back “Homeland” which happens to star one of my good buddies Navid Nagahban. This series, if you didn’t catch last season, takes on the many conditions of the Iranian war, its captures and its villains. Be sure to check this out. This show also stars Clare Danes and Damien Lewis, and has been nominated for nine Emmys. New to ABC this season is “666 Park Avenue” starring Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn as a married couple with a lot of secrets of the demonic variety in the New York complex they run. On Fox is an interesting new show designed around a doctor who goes to work for the mob in “The Mob Doctor.” CBS brings on another new show built around real life co-workers and television producers who created the television show giant “Will & Grace” with “Partners,” and Jimmy Fallon executive produces “Guys With Kids” — new to NBC. This is just a few of the exciting new projects coming to your media or living room this season, and this October brings even more with the all new NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” ABC’s “Nashville,” The CW’s “Beauty and the Beast” and “Emily Owens, MD.” Look for NBC to bring vampires to primetime following the hit makers who have taken HBO’s “True Blood” and the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” to fame and fortune with “Dracula,” starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers. I enjoy sharing my insight and knowledge about what’s coming up, going on and in development. Stay with me every other month as I take you into my world, including interviews with some stars from this upcoming season of shows. Also tune in and watch the show I produce “In Her Shoes,” starring Tiffany Dowling and Shelley Davis Mielock on My18 at noon every Thursday. Television is looking better and better.
