Fall TV: Sunday

7:00 -- America's Funniest Home Videos (ABC), 60 Minutes (CBS), Football Night in America (NBC), CW Now (CW)

7:30 -- Online Nation (CW)

8:00 -- Extreme Makeover Home Edition (ABC), Viva Laughlin (CBS), Sunday Night Football (NBC), Simpsons (Fox), Life is Wild (CW)

8:30 -- King of the Hill (Fox)

9:00 -- Desperate Housewives (ABC), Cold Case (CBS), Family Guy (Fox), Tell Me You Love Me (HBO), Dexter (Showtime)

9:30 -- American Dad (Fox)

10:00 -- Brothers and Sisters (ABC), Shark (CBS), Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO), Brotherhood (Showtime)

"Dexter" is so good, ya'll. I'm just worried that the second season can't possibly live up to the standard set by the first. In a completely different league, I sort of got sucked in to "Brothers and Sisters" last year. It has a great cast, but it's just so absurd. I will try to wean myself.

Among new shows, "Viva Laughlin" -- a musical mystery set in a casino and starring Hugh Jackman has huge trainwreck potential. I watched the first couple episodes of "Tell Me You Love Me" -- aka the sex show -- and I'm torn. I want to find out if Ally Walker and her husband are ever going to have sex, but the other stories sort of bore me.

The big question is what happened to the "Amazing Race"?

C'mon, it's a great show. The acting is tremendous and realistic. Ok, so the couple who can't get pregnant, it's starting to veer into over-the-top regular tv drama, but the rest of the show is excellent. And don't you want to know what happened with the therapist and the mystery man from her past? I also want to see what they're going to do with the ex-fiancee and how many men she'll hook up with over the course of the show.

I'm just going to make a guick plug for a show no one ever talks about: "King of the Hill." It is so funny. One of my favorite shows on television, and I always look forward to new episodes.

I need my Amazing Race fix, maybe it'll be a January show? I haven't heard a word about any upcoming seasons but I thought the ratings were good enough to keep producing the show.

The first four episodes of "Tell Me You Love Me" have kept me hooked enough to want to keep watching, but it's not great enough that I NEED to watch, like, say, "The Sopranos" or "Sex and the City" were. I think the sex is less hot than I expected, in that it's more realistic. Well, except for how good-looking everyone is, but other than that, it's not all gussied up like it usually is in movies and on TV. It's almost clinical, especially for the trying-to-conceive couple. (Which, MAN I hate her.)

I'm sorta into "Tell Me You Love Me." Which probably doesn't surprise anyone who knows my taste for drama. I think the acting and dialogue are excellent.
