Fall TV Preview - Monday

Dancing with the Stars

How I Met Your Mother
2 Broke Girls
Two and a Half Men
Mike & Molly
Hawaii Five-0

The Sing-Off
The Playboy Club

Terra Nova

Gossip Girl
Hart of Dixie

New Shows:
2 BROKE GIRLS (CBS) - Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs are two mismatched friends trying to make it in New York.

THE PLAYBOY CLUB (NBC) - Soapy 60's set drama about a lawyer (Eddie Cibrian) who hooks up with a bunny (Amber Heard) who accidentally killed a mob boss.

TERRA NOVA (FOX) - Colonists from 2149 go back in time 85 million years to start over on Earth. Features Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars) and Stephen Lang (Avatar). There will be dinosaurs.

HART OF DIXIE (CW) - The O.C.'s Rachel Bilson stars as a New York doctor who relocates to Alabama.


If it's remotely good, 2 Broke Girls should succeed; Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide named it one of the five best new shows of the fall. NBC's had trouble with Monday night for a while, and I don't see The Playboy Club turning it around, hype notwithstanding. My hunch is Dancing with the Stars beats The Sing-Off, and therefore Castle (and Hawaii Five-0) will win in 10/9. Terra Nova's a risk, but by making it the lead-in for House, Fox is giving it every opportunity to find viewers. Hart of Dixie is D.O.A.
