The TV Blog Coalition - Labour Day Already? That Means New TV Is On The Way!

Yes, after a writer's strike derailed things this past year, a new (let's hope) full season of TV is upon us and it all starts on Labour Day this year with TNT, The CW and FOX getting a jump start by premiering Raising The Bar (10pm TNT) Gossip Girl (8pm, on The CW), One Tree Hill (9pm on The CW) and Prison Break (8pm, 2hrs on FOX) early on the holiday Monday (September 1st).

Now, I usually complain that the new season starts too late (usually at the end of Sept. or early Oct.) but Labour Day? Isn't everyone getting back from the cottage or their European vacation? Or getting over their hangover? Or getting ready for the first day of school? Or getting their kids ready for the first day of school? Or all of the above? Isn't TV not exactly a priority on the night before the day after Labour Day? Ah well, what do I know?

There's also the much buzzed about 90210 series premiere on Tuesday at 8pm on The CW (2 hrs).

Bones returns on Wednesday at 8pm with a 2 hour season premiere on FOX.

Plus, Greek (Tuesday at 9pm on acbFamily) already started last week.

And hopefully by next week I'll be back from China and get my couch potato behind in gear and post my Fall TV Previews. In the meantime, here are some more diligent TV bloggers and what they were talking about this past week:

Buzz chatted with 90210's Shenae Grimes about the responsibilities of being "The new Brenda." (BuzzSugar)

Marcia returned from the Edinburgh TV Festival with tales of Heroes and Doctor Who, straight from the showrunners' mouths. Also, new site design! (Pop Vultures)

Rae's spent the summer with her nose buried in a book and it's finally paying off for us with her review of the Burn Notice novel "The Fix." (RTVW Online)

A reason to check out the new season of Greek: chicks in socks. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)

Vance loves Gavin & Stacey and insists that you all watch it too so that you too can fall in love. (Tapeworthy)

This week, Jace took an early look at the first three episodes of the new season of Gossip Girl and offered up which new and returning series he'll be watching this fall. (Televisionary)

Before the conventions started and we got all partisan, Sara got all "thinky" and discussed the optimistic nationalism of the Olympics. Never fear, we'll soon return to our guttural reactions on Project Runway. (TiFaux)

Raoul got excited about the possibility of a (re)animated Buffy Summers. (TV Filter)
