The FSR Fall 2010 Friday Night Watch List

We’ve done it! We’ve reached the final night of the week. Friday, the night often known as the night where shows go to die, has seen a resurgence in good programming in the last decade.

Shows like Law & Order: SVU, Flashpoint and Ghost Whisperer all either started or still currently air on Friday nights. I can’t help but attribute that rise in programming to the invention of DVRs. Now you don’t have to be home to enjoy the programming of the empty night.

So send the kids out on their sleep over, break out that 15 year old bottle of scotch and refresh those DVR batteries because here comes part VI of the FSR Fall 2010 Watch List.Smallville (CW) Airs Friday 8pm, Premieres September 24th

The following synopsis is provided by Kevin Carr:

When we last left Clark Kent, he was falling from a building after being stabbed with a blue-kryptonite dagger. Zod had been dispatched, but Clark is badly hurt. The tenth and final season of Smallville opens with Lois finding Clark, and we will see his final developments into the Superman we all know and love. And let’s not forget the final touches on Clark’s romance with Lois, as well as the introduction of Cat Grant. Will Clark finally show up in the red and blue tights this season? We can only hope.

Human Target (FOX) Airs Friday 8pm, Premieres October 1st

One of the most entertaining new shows of last season, Human Target returns on a new night. Christopher Chance, is back and ready kick some major ass after the truth behind his origins are revealed. I fell in love with this show last season, it’s a whole lotta witty jokes (mostly from Jackie Earle Haley) and a whole lotta people beating the crap out of one another. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, he may not know movies that well, but McG knows good television.

CSI: NY (CBS) Airs Friday 9pm, Premieres September 24th

The final CSI: of the programming week airs on a new night starting this year. I was never a fan of the show, I just couldn’t get into Gary Sinise’s character. But the show has an audience and that audience loves the hustle and bustle of NY, so for them and anyone who has yet to see it, check it out.

The Good Guys (FOX) Airs Friday 9pm, Premieres September 24th

From the guy that gave us Burn Notice, The Good Guys was one of summer’s best new shows. And now it’s getting the fall treatment. Detectives Dan Stark and Jack Bailey return for some more small crime, crime fighting… But not with out some changes. But I’ll keep those a surprise. I’m looking forward to see what Matt Nix has in store.

Superatural (CW) Airs Friday 9pm, Premieres September 24th

One of CW’s biggest surprise hits, Supernatural returns for its sixth year. I’ve seen some back episode of this one thanks to TNT and I’m impressed. Once I find the time I intent to get caught up with the rest of the world, but for now I will say that the characters in this show are bad ass. I’m not the biggest fan of the monster of the week style show, but I see why it has such a huge following.

Blue Bloods (CBS) Airs Friday 10pm, Premieres September 24th

The only new show on the list, Blue Bloods is a brand new police procedural from The Sopranos’ executive producer and writer Robin Green & Mitchell Burgess, Blue Bloods looks like it’s going for the overly dramatic style. I won’t pass full judgment till I see it, but it looks like it needs work.
