Tuesday night TV

All right, its a home run for me on Fox, Tuesday this fall. No telling how long that might last though. But at the moment...

It all starts with Glee and newcomer Chord Overstreet "Sam" is just irresistibly... so cute. And who knows..Kurt may have a chance with him, too. Along with that we are learning all sorts of things about last year's characters. Heather Morris' Britney is so quotable. And there is such girl drama. Boy drama. Sexuality preferences and the like. How do they squeeze it all one hour, along with belting those show stoppers?

Afterwards, a must see show it Raising Hope. I had my doubts about this one. Kind of a redneck genre brought to you by the folks of My Name is Earl, but Martha Plimpton along with classic Cloris Leachman's Maw Maw bring it. And Lucas Neff is the perfect casting for the slightly miserable son who ends up with baby  Hope after a one night stand with a serial killer that was sent to the electric chair. Every week though, there is something that gets to you. Really, the show is redeeming, but I couldn't tell you exactly which part. You'd just have to watch.

Finally, Running Wilde. which is a crazy show brought to you by crazy Will Arnett. This was the show I had the most reservations about. (Arnett)A rich kid grownup who has no idea how the real world works but somehow finds his true love(Kerri Russell) who is trying to fix the world of its many plights. And her daughter Puddle(Stefania Owens) is the narrator of the show, who might be the smartest in the bunch. It is in the Arrested Development tradition. However, with new blood like Peter Serafinowicz as Fa'ad makes the show quite original.
