Five new TV shows we think you'll really like.

Pushing Daisies

This dramedy about a man with a death-defying touch – he literally raises the recently deceased to enlist their help in solving their own murders – is the "buzz" show of the fall season. It's quirky and sweet-natured with just a dash of crime solving to keep it moving.

Dirty Sexy Money

Full of dirty dealings, charismatic Peter Krause, and a dash of Southern-gothic storytelling about an eccentric and obscenely rich family, this is the primetime soap formula, à la "Dallas" and "Dynasty," wrapped up for the 21st century in proper conspiracy theories and truly nasty bad guys.

Back to You

Jammed with good, solid talent – Kelsey Grammer, Patricia Heaton, Fred Willard – this show about a dysfunctional local TV news team is a good, solid workplace sitcom that is actually funny – what a concept!

Chuck

The ultimate nerd fantasy – a dyed-in-the-wool computer geek gets romanced by a babe, chased by bad guys, and ends up as the keeper of every top secret our country's top agencies may – or just may not – have, depending on how nice they are to Chuck.

Reaper

Another new show riding the Geek Chic wave, this new dramedy stars the devil's reluctant bounty hunter. See, his mom sold his soul when he was born, figuring, oh, who knows? Tune in to this odd little charmer about an underdog who just can't catch a break – or more important, the most recent escapee from down under.
