The 10 TV shows we're most looking forward to checking out this season.


10 p.m. Tuesdays on FX

Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James are the coolest private dicks since Jim Rockford.

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"

Premieres 10 p.m. Sept. 16 on FX

Last season had Kitten Mittens and the D.E.N.N.I.S. System. With the gang set to tackle gay marriage and Sweet Dee getting pregnant, this season should be just as hilarious.

"Boardwalk Empire"

Premieres 9 p.m. Sept. 19 on HBO

The cast includes Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt and Michael Shannon, and the 90-minute pilot was directed by Martin Scorsese - this period Prohibition drama should be the best new show this fall.


Premieres 9 p.m. Sept. 20 on Fox

The show-runners (including "(500) Days of Summer's" Marc Webb) plan to use a "Mad Men"-esque storytelling style - pretty ballsy for a network series.


Premieres 8 p.m. Sept. 23 on NBC

The smartest comedy on television - if you saw the episode that spoofs action movies by using paintball warfare, you know what this show is capable of.


Premieres 9 p.m. Sept. 23 on Fox

"Lost" fans suffering from withdrawal should look to this J.J. Abrams series for their sci-fi fix. A tremendous cliffhanger last season has me eagerly awaiting the season premiere.

"The Simpsons"

Premieres 8 p.m. Sept. 26 on Fox

After 22 seasons, I still find the Springfield family's misadventures funny and fresh. Plus, Jemaine and Bret from "Flight of the Concords" guest-star in the premiere!


Premieres 9 p.m. Sept. 26 on Showtime

A dark drama about a forensic analyst/family man who moonlights as a serial killer is intriguing enough. Throw in last season's shocking finale, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

"Eastbound & Down"

Premieres 10:30 Sept. 26 on HBO

It's been way too long since we've gotten our Kenny f---ing Powers fix. Now TV's crudest (and funniest) anti-hero is taking his talents to Mexico. Don't worry - there'll still be Stevie Janowski.

"The Walking Dead"

Premieres 10 p.m. Oct 31 on AMC

The zombie apocalypse tale is based on one of the most critically acclaimed graphic novels ever, and it's on AMC. 'Nuff said.
