4 fall TV shows still topping our list
Hart of Dixie
Rachel Bilson’s back as Dr. Zoe Hart, a surgeon from NYC who accepts an offer to work in a small medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama. Zoe’s out of her element in the south and considers moving back north…until making friends with NFL star-turned-mayor Lavon Hayes (Cress Williams), the cute bad guy-next-door Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel), and southern belle Lemon’s fiancé George Tucker (Scott Porter).
WHAT WE LOVE: The clothes (this is a Rachel Bilson show, after all!), the music (we love country!) and the fact that it always gives us something to talk about on Tuesday mornings.
The X Factor
Brits seem to instinctively have music in their blood (The Beatles? The Rolling Stones? Adele?) and we can’t help but dig this latest import. Judges L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell help aspiring singers become superstars.
WHAT WE LOVE: Anyone as young as 12 years old can audition, and bands are on the show, too! The process is way different than American Idol: contestants must survive auditions and a grueling performance boot camp, then trek to an assigned judge’s house to pick the contestants they think have the best chance of winning a live show. That’s where we, the audience comes in. The judges coach their contestants, and America decides who wins the largest prize in TV history: a $5 million recording contract and the glory of having The X Factor!
Debby Ryan proves she can handle being a leading lady as Jessie, a small-town Texas girl who scores big laughs during her nannying antics for a rich family with a Jolie-Pitt like brood.
WHAT WE LOVE: You can watch Jessie with your little sis or on your own as a guilty pleasure.
The Secret Circle
When 16-year-old Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson) moves in with her grandmother in Chance Harbor, Washington after her mom dies, her new friends tell her they are all descendants of powerful witches—and that she is, too! Cassie thinks they’re totally cray-cray until she discovers a message from her mother in a book of spells. What The Secret Circle doesn’t know is that the adults in town have dark secret powers. And the death of Cassie’s mother might not have been such an accident after all.
WHAT WE LOVE: Not only will you be totally sucked into the magic of Chance Harbor, but the show keeps us on the edge of our seats. Don’t believe us? One of the main characters has already died.
