REVIEW: Fall TV season offers variety

This past week has been a long time coming for lovers of TV shows, as most series have finally returned after their three-month summer hiatus. Here’s a short (and definitely not exhaustive) list of our favorite shows and their airing times.

30 Rock
NBC, Thursdays, 8:30 p.m.
In its fifth season and still going strong, “30 Rock” offers well-written comedy and great acting. Viewers can’t wait to see what “The Problem (Solvers)” Tracy and Jenna have in store for Liz this season.

Desperate Housewives
ABC, Sundays, 9 p.m
Unrealistic storylines and weak writing have brought this show far from its excellent first seasons. Vanessa Williams might make “Desperate Housewives” worth watching again – might.

Fox, Tuesdays, 8 p.m.
Everybody’s favorite new show recently won four Emmy Awards and was nominated for far more. With stars like Britney Spears, Carol Burnett, James Stamos and Javier Bardem scheduled to appear this season, Gleeks can look forward to a repeat of last year’s awesomeness.

Grey’s Anatomy
ABC, Thursdays, 9 p.m.
Personal favorite Grey’s Anatomy managed to redeem itself from a poor sixth season with a gripping finale – let’s hope season seven doesn’t disappoint again.

Fox, Mondays, 8 p.m.
Viewers have been holding their breath and crossing their fingers for this couple for a long time – and finally, Huddy will get the screen time they deserve. Let’s just hope it will be as good as we all imagined!

Modern Family
ABC, Wednesdays, 9 p.m.
The show loved by critics and viewers alike made a splash last year. The second season will show if “Modern Family” can stay in TV gods’ good graces.

NBC, Tuesdays, 10 p.m.
This mid-season replacement was thankfully picked up for a full season and was among the many new shows which were embraced by viewers. “Parenthoo”” got a head-start with its early return date of Sept. 14, so if you missed the first episodes be quick to catch up!
