Fall TV Handbook: Sundays at 8
2010 Fall TV Handbook
The shows: The Amazing Race, The Cleveland Show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, The Simpsons
What I'm doing: Nothing! Whoa. This might be the only hour when I have no interest in any of the shows.
Amazing Race, The, CBS, Sundays at 8, 9/26 at 8:30
Stars and how you know them: Host Phil Keoghan. You know him from . . . this.
What it is: Teams travel around the world completing various challenges.
The buzz: I think everyone knows enough about this that no one bothers talking about it much anymore. But it lost the reality Emmy for the first time this year, which isn't necessarily the best sign.
You might like this if you like: Reality competition shows? Travel? You probably already know if you like this.
Cleveland Show, The, FOX, Sundays at 8:30, 9/26
Stars and how you know them: Animated - shares a lot of voice talent with other Fox Sunday night shows.
What it is: A Family Guy spinoff about their neighbor and deli owner, apparently.
The buzz: Honestly, I rarely hear anything about this, and it's not my kind of thing.
You might like this if you like: Family Guy.
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ABC, Sundays at 8, 9/26
Stars and how you know them: Ty Pennington, from Trading Spaces
What it is: Pennington, guest celebrities, and various other folk renovate the homes of deserving families around the company.
The buzz: This is a pretty reliable feel-good show, although the novelty is pretty much gone by now.
You might like this if you like: Home renovation shows, and/or shows about people overcoming obstacles.
Simpsons, The, FOX, Sundays at 8, 9/26

Stars and how you know them: You know them all from THIS, I promise, but they do have good guest stars. I think the Glee kids are going to be on.
What it is: OH COME ON.
The buzz: People continue to be really into this, and it sort of mystifies me, frankly.
You might like this if you like: I bet you already know whether you like this. I am likely the only person in the universe who doesn't.
