15 Fall TV Shows to Watch in 2012

Fall Arts Preview 2012


Sunday, Sept. 30, ABC

THE DEFINITE GUILTY pleasure of last fall’s new shows, Revenge revels in providing viewers with an experience enshrined in nighttime soaps, but one that also thrives on the strong central performances of its cast – in particular series leads Emily VanCamp and Madeleine Stowe, with both grounding the show in contrast to its outlandish concept. Revenge blew through its first season in a whirlwind of betrayal, murder, lust and… well, revenge, and hopes are high for more of the same this year.

If you haven’t watched the first series, there’s plenty of time to grab the box set, a bottle of wine, and settle in for hours of the best soapy drama currently on TV.
