    What show gets your vote for best TV viewing so far this fall. In a landslide its season 3 of American Horror Story, its only been 4 episodes and already better than any other season.

    Good reality based TV show. Very similar to what used to be called "baseball" in previous generations.

    Haven't started watching Orange is the New Black yet, but I'm hearing good things.
    I also hope it doesn't take too long for Netflix to get Homeland season 3.

    My kids got me hooked on The Walking Dead and I'm really enjoying it this season.

    Homeland has been awful so far imo, still early yet though so it might pick up.

    Don't know if you get Strikeback over there but i'm a big fan of that. Boardwalk Empire is always good too.

    How is that Agent of Shield show? I gave up after the 1st eposide. It was like watching models fight the world.

    Still get a goof over Jesus Christ morphing into a Jason Bourne-type (Jim Caviezel) in Person of Interest, which is fairly entertaining. Elementary still gets my nod for best over-the-air fare. As to comedies, I haven't given up on Robin Williams' return to TV on The Crazy Ones but it's a lame start for such talents as Williams and David Kelley to collaborate on. Gregg Garcia (My Name Is Earl) has done OK producing his new one, The Millers and Mom is pretty funny, coming on the footsteps of all those other Chuck Lorre hits.

    I lost interest on that one. It's not as well written compared to Blacklist or Arrow

    Arrow is good, totally agree. The thing that i'm not a big fan of with American shows is that they all seem to last 20+ episodes a season. They could make it 10-12 and cut out all the filler imo.

    They ruined the show after the producers decided to give Green Arrow superpowers.

    Walking Dead is picking up pace, Welcome back Governor.

    Sleepy Hollow is a decent show.Nice way to break up a boring Monday.

    New Girl has lost a lot of steam from the 1st season. Kind of painful to watch since the characters at times, too much cartoon behavior.

    I get treated to season 6 of Breaking Bad when the DVD comes out Nov. 26th.

    Do you mean best NEW TV show this fall?

    If so, definitely "The Goldbergs". It's hilarious! :)

    Best new shows have been Sleepy Hollow, the Blacklist (Spader at his slimiest - it's like his character from Pretty in Pink grew up!) and of course American Horror Story Coven is excellent! Witches, Zombies, Frankenstein like monsters , crazy a** New Orleans Vodoo queens!!!! as good as season 1.

    American Horror Story is great this year, every episode has me at the edge on my seat yearning to find answers to all the tantalizing cliff-hangers they leave.

    I haven't had the time to really get involved in any of them, but I notice there's a lot of new comedies on like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Crazy Ones, Dads, The Goldbergs, The Michael J. Fox Show, The Millers, Sean Saves the World, etc...

    But I'm still waiting for the day they bring back Happy Days ;)

    Boardwalk Empire. Fantastic show, I doubt many watch it but it is brilliant. After this, I'd say either Arrow or The Walking Dead. Arrow more likely, The Walking Dead's new season has been slow so far.

    Either way, Breaking Bad > all. I know it's not fall, but still.

    This season of American Horror Story has me thinking how are they going to top off last week and they do. Can you think of a more evil pair than the AxMan and Fiona ( Jessica Lange).

    You obviously are not watching the show. The Arrow does not have superpowers (at least not yet on this show ).

    Sons of Anarchy is amazing this season.

    And Homeland and Boardwalk.
    The Blacklist has been pretty good for a cable show as well.

    Boardwalk Empire is excellent at the moment. Still committed to Walking Dead but starting to ask myself why, it's been pretty average and formulaic for a long time now.

    I like THE CRAZY ONES with Robin Williams. He's still got it.

    Yeah it has, I didn't really like the last season that much either.

    Funny how you get shows like that, I started watching Revolution last year and for some reason i'm still watching it. I couldn't give you a single good reason as to why am though :)

    Dracula's OK.
    Sleepy Hollow is OK.
    Almost Human is pretty good for the first two episodes so far.
    Walking Dead has turned a tangent, so we'll see. Was kind of dragging before a bit.
    Revolution is kind of dragging *** now.
    Agents of SHIELD I guess, but not really.

    I can't think of any of the shows that I absolutely have to watch every minute of. That to me means the show's not all that good.

    Agents of Shield has been a letdown. I prefer Arrow. Even when Arrow started, it started slow but it wasn't that slow compared to AoS.
