The TV Blog Coalition - Returns and Point of No Return

Most of the shows have returned now, but still waiting for Ugly Betty and 30 Rock, both of which I still love (I don't care what you all say about UB, it still makes me laugh). ABC was smart enough to push the season premiere of Ugly Betty to next week, now starting Friday Oct. 16th (instead of on the long weekend because Friday on a normal weekend wasn't already hard enough for TV shows to survive (see Dollhouse ratings. Ugh. And just when I caught up too). 30 Rock will start the day before on Oct. 15th.

Hoorah! Can't wait! Not that there isn't enough to watch already? I seriously need to purge. I try to give new shows a few chances since it can often take some shows a little while to get into the groove (if not a whole season) but I'm not sure I'll be back for more medicine with Mercy, Trauma, Three Rivers now will I probably be back for Hank though I didn't mind The Middle so Hank might just get a reprieve for being lumped into ABC's Wednesday comedy night (Kind of the same thing that's lucking out for Accidentally On Purpose and HIMYM).

Melrose Place is also lucky to announce Heather Locklear's return just as I was about to give up on that show.

On the other hand, I was going to totally write off Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy and they were actually pretty good again and sucked me right back in. ARGH. Cause something's going to have to give on Thursday night, and I'm just not sure what yet.

In the meantime, here's what the TV bloggers were talking about this week:

Vance ranks the new shows he's checked out from best to worst. Where did you think he put Glee and Modern Family? (Tapeworthy)

In the wake of the much ballyhooed Jenny Slate controversy, Kyle examined indecency, SNL, the FCC and drew one conclusion -- who cares? (TiFaux)

As the third season of Mad Men rolls on, BuzzSugar's got the rundown on what other projects the talented ladies of the show have lined up. (BuzzSugar)

This week, we took a first look at Al Pacino in HBO's new original movie, You Don't Know Jack. (Daemon's TV)

Trauma may not have had the best pilot ever, but hey, it had a fingerless Buddy Garrity. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)
