The Five Hottest New Shows on Fall TV -- ABCFOXCBSThe CWShowtime
It's time to settle into that couch, prop your feet up and grab the remote - the new season of television is here.
By last count, there were more than two dozen brand new dramas and comedies set to debut over the next few weeks, adding up to more than an entire day - and night's -- worth of television.
Overwhelming? Definitely. But at AccessHollywood.com , we've got you covered.
Our team spent the last six weeks watching every single pilot and we've managed to narrow it down to the Five Hottest New Shows of Fall Television.
Check them out, listed in order of their premiere date...
Combining drama, a murder mystery, and bushels of Twintrigue (get it? twin + intrigue), The CW's "Ringer" marks Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to television. But "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," this is not.
"You can't top Buffy, you know... It's what it was. It was an amazing experience... That was different," Sarah Michelle told Access Hollywood . "I love film noir, I love the unraveling of the mysteries and I haven't played twins before, so I thought, 'OK, why not?'"
Double trouble -- "Ringer" finds Sarah Michelle playing troubled twins, whose lives have diverged on equally destructive paths. One's a recovering addict on the run from testifying against a mob boss, the other's a wealthy New Yorker in a broken marriage, with some very big and very dangerous secrets.
"Essentially, the pitch of the show is that the audience are let in on a secret right at the very beginning: Bridget and Siobhan, who are identical twins, have swapped lives," Ioan Gruffudd, who plays Siobhan's husband, Andrew, told Access. "So from the beginning you are gonna be lead on a journey of intrigue and backstabbing and cliff hangers at the end of every episode.
"I think it's gonna be one of your favorite telenovelas, soap operas, crossed with 'Damages,'" the Welshman added of his show, which premiered on Tuesday night at 9 PM.
2. "Two Broke Girls"
And from dark mysteries on the Upper East Side to a greasy spoon in Brooklyn, next up on our list is the highly-anticipated new comedy from "Sex and The City" writer and producer Michael Patrick King - CBS' "Two Broke Girls."
Starring Kat Dennings and newcomer Beth Behrs, "Two Broke Girls" is a saucy comedy about what happens when you mix a blunt-talking, two-job working waitress with a disgraced uptown princess.
"I think the captivating thing about somebody with a lot of money and losing all their money was interesting," Michael Patrick said at the Television Critics Association Summer Session in August. "And somebody whose life was supposed to go a certain way and then suddenly went the other way, was interesting."
As for Beth, she said the show, which premieres Monday, September 19 at 9:30 PM on CBS, adds up to a whole lot of laughs.
"It's also just really silly and funny and laugh-out-loud kind of comedy," she has said.
3. "New Girl"
FOX is amping up their comedy plate this year with "New Girl," starring the adorable Zooey Deschanel, sister of "Bones" star Emily.
Known for her big screen roles in films like "Elf" and "(500) Days of Summer," Zooey brings her charm and penchant for song to the character of Jess, a young woman desperately in need of new digs
