Sneak Peek: Fox's New Fall Shows

We already took a quick look at NBC’s new fall shows, this time we’ll see what Fox has in store for us.

Sept. 20th

Lone Star (9 p.m. ET) – Bob Allen is a con man who has worked his way into a lucrative career in the oil company. He lives with, and is married to, Cat Thatcher the heiress a large fortune in oil. Allen is living a double-life, and the promos make it look like he’s trying to scam the Thatchers for all their worth, except, he’s actually falling in love with the people he’s trying to screw over.

Sept. 21st

Raising Hope (9 p.m. ET) – Jimmy is a brainless 25 year-old who had a one-night stand with a woman who is now on death row (that’s a conversation starter if I’ve ever heard one). Now he finds himself as a single parent trying to take care of the child that he’s the father of. I’m never really excited about shows like this, ones that feel like they’d make a better two-hour movie than a full season TV show. How do you keep a plot like that going?

Running Wilde (9:30 p.m. ET) – If there’s a show out there to have hope for it’s this one. Mitchell Hurwitz, creator of Arrested Development, comes back to TV and teams up again with Will Arnett to produce a show that looks like its got a ton of potential. Arnett is filthy rich and all he wants is to win the heart of his high school crush. It doesn’t help matters that she’s a crazy left-wing liberal who’s all about saving the environment, while he’s a rich conservative who thinks money can buy everything. Out of all the new shows this season, this is the one I’m most excited for.
