What Are the 10 Most Anticipated Returning Fall Shows? - Featured

NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, and Fringe are the most hotly anticipated returning fall shows, according to TVGuide.com's TV Team research panel.



NCIS ended last season with fan favorite Ziva (Cote De Pablo) bruised and battered after being taken hostage by terrorists. Fan anticipation is centered on who exactly took Ziva prisoner, how long she will be held captive, and whether or not her loyalty still lies with NCIS.


Grey's will resolve its season-ending cliffhanger, which found both George (T.R. Knight) and Izzie (Katherine Heigl) battling for their lives. Fringe will have to straddle two realities after introducing in the finale an alternate universe that features, among other things, the World Trade Center's Twin Towers still standing.


The 10 most anticipated shows are:


1. NCIS (CBS)

2. Grey's Anatomy (ABC)

3. Fringe (Fox)

4. Supernatural (The CW)

5. Bones (Fox)

6. The Big Bang Theory (CBS)

7. House (Fox)

8. Castle (ABC)

9. Criminal Minds (CBS)

10. Dexter (Showtime)


The research survey was conducted Aug. 25-27, and 3,669 of the approximately 10,000 members of TVGuide.com's TV Team research panel participated. Stay tuned for more fall TV results from the research panel.

Dare I admit that I'm looking forward to the return of 90210 (one of the few legitimate cliffhangers whose outcome has not yet been spoiled, unlike say, Grey's)?Also: Curb Your Enthusiasm and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia..and then pretty much the usual suspects of HIMYM, Big Bang, Gossip Girl, The Office, 30 Rock...and I never thought I'd be saying this...but I am pretty psyched to see where they go with Fringe.

Even though it isnt returning til January, Lost's final season is still what I have been most waiting for ever since the final episode last May. After that the most anticipated returning fall shows are;
1. It's always sunny - Other than Seinfeld(obviously), this is the best written comedy ever.
2. How I Met Your Mother - Actually starting to dive into the "real" plot of the show.
3. Curb Your Enthusiasm - Seinfeld Reunion, nuff said
4. Fringe - Now that the introduction stage of the show is over, the real series begins.
5. Californication - (not sure if this is fall or spring return, but Hank Moody, is one of the best characters on TV.)
6. Bones - God i hope they drop the amnesia angle really fast.
7. Big Bang Theory - More Sheldon antics
8. Smallville - Needs to rebound after an awful last season finale, more superman, less smallville please.
9. The Office - Michael Scott!!!......you can let you mind wander from there.
10. Two and a half men - still one of the funniest shows on tv
