So much going on in the world of TV, lets focus on some of that today!

  • Steven Spielberg’s upcoming TNT sci-fi series Falling Skies finally has a release date! It will launch with a 2 hour premiere on June 19 at 9pm, than ove into a regular Sunday 10pm timeslot. The new alien centered series stars TV vet Noah Wyle (ER). If it is half as good as Spielberg’s past sci-fi TV effort Taken, I’ll be tuning in.
  • TNT has also announced dates for the new seasons of its original programming. Men of a Certain Age with Ray Romano and the great Scott Bakula returns on June 1st at 10pm for the last 6 episodes of its second season. June 1st will also see the premiere of Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Saved by the Bell) legal series Franklin Bash. It will have a 10 episode first season. June 14th will see the launch of new seasons of both the Jason Lee starer Memphis Beat and the Jada Pinkett Smith hospital drama Hawthorne, where she is joined this season by singer/actor Marc Anthony. June 26th sees the return of crime series Leverage and July 11th is the start of new seasons of veteran shows The Closer and Rizoli & Isles.
  • I wonder who would play Charlie Sheen in a TV Movie about this rise/fall and “winning”? Sheen has endorsed Rob Lowe to take over for him on Two and a Half Men… he might make a good Charlie Sheen though. Hmmmm. Maybe Sheen could even finance the movie, he just filed a law suit against Warner Brothers for 100 million dollars. Dr. Evil style yo.
  • My Future Girlfriend, the new webseries from the creators of We Need Girlfriends finally has a release date! Ragtag Productions will release the first episode of the five episode sci-fi influenced series on April 1st! Hopefully we’ll get a teaser to post soon!
  • This past Monday House took on zombies in a dream sequence and back at Halloween we saw Community faced with a zombie like invasion, what other shows would you like to see the characters take on zombies in? How would members of The Office fare? I think the doctors at Grey’s would get eaten pretty quickly. Chuck and company would easily defend the Buy More from the undead. Sound off in the comments with what shows and characters you’d like to see face a zombie invasion!

The fall television season is in full swing! And with that comes more new shows that you can watch online.  Our friends at 141tv do all of the leg work in gathering the info for us, here are three new shows that you can check out online:

If you liked Bring It On, than you might dig this new CW Network series that is produced by Tom Welling. The series focuses on Marti Perkins (Aly Michalka) a pre-law student who loses her scholarship and is forced to try out for the university’s “legendary” cheerleader squad to get the scholarship that comes with a place on the team. Of course being on the team causes its own drama.

Check out the series here. After you give it a look, don’t forget to vote on it.

Also from the CW Network comes the newest version of Nikita (titled as such).  The very sexy Maggie Q takes on the lead role that finds the ex-super spy/assassin/all around badass on a run from the very people who trained her. The series costars Shane West, Tiffany Hines, Lyndsy Fonseca, Shane West, Aaron Stanford, and Melinda Clarke.

We’ll see how long this remake lasts. 90210 has done well for the network, but Melrose Place crashed and burned. Check it out here.

Last but not least we have a new cop show with a different spin. Based on the book series by Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon as detective Jane Rizzoli and Sasha Alexander as medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles, and together they solve crimes. The TNT series has already gotten a second season renewal. In addition to Harmon and Alexander, the series boasts a great supporting cast including Lorraine Bracco, Bruce McGill, and Chazz Palminteri.  You can check out episodes here.

With the fall season in full swing, what shows are you excited for? What new shows have you checked out?

New TNT Show

Tonight, the summer season of television continues with an all new crime drama from TNT, Rizzoli & Isles.  The show airs at 10pm after Kyra Sedgwick’s The Closer. It stars Angie Harmon and Shasha Alexander as a pair of “gal-pal” crimefighters in Boston.  Harmon is detective Jane Rizzoli and Alexander is medical examiner Maura Isles. In tonight’s premiere episode, the team investigates the grim slaying of a wealthy couple, which appears to by the work of a copycat killer.  The series co-stars Bruce McGill, Lee Thompson Young, Jordan Bridges, and Lorraine Bracco. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to Bracco being back on TV, for a while she was the best part of The Sopranos.

Before Isles, we have the season 6 opener for The Closer.  Tonight’s show “opens with the shooting death of a man. Among the messy complications hindering Brenda’s investigation: an affair involving the victim, a missing murder weapon and the squad’s difficult move to their new high-tech headquarters.” I’ve never watched the crime series, but with nothing else on, maybe I’ll check it out.

Otherwise, ABC has a new The Bachelorette at 8pm, which lasts for two hours (…I think that would make me throw up…), and is followed by True Beauty (…even worse!). Fox has Lie to Me at 8pm followed by The Good Guys, NBC has moved Persons Unknown (thanks for letting us know guys) which leaves us with Last Comic Standing at 9pm followed by Dateline NBC, and over on Cable we have a night of new programming on ABC Family with The Secret Life of the American Teenager at 8pm followed by Huge at 9pm, A&E has Intervention at 8pm followed by Obsessed at 9pm, and finally, USA Network brings us a new WWE Monday Night Raw starting at 9pm. Don’t forget to come back later in the week for a Raw recap from our new columnist and wrestling fan Lucian.
