Under the Dome is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. It tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill in Maine, where a massive, transparent, indestructible dome suddenly cuts them off from the rest of the world. With no Internet access, no mobile signals and limited radio communication, the people trapped inside must find their own ways to survive with diminishing resources and rising tensions. While military forces, the government and the media positioned outside of this surrounding barrier attempt to break it down, a small group of people inside attempt to figure out what the dome is, where it came from, and when (and if) it will go away.
Tip : Steven Spielberg is amongst the executive producers. Enough said. Also, crazy first episode.
Imdb rating : 7.8/10
Masters of Sex,” a new hour-long drama on Showtime, is a fizzy, ebullient quasi-historical romp about the team of scientific pioneers who transformed American attitudes toward sex. But let’s not bury the lead: it’s also a serious turn-on.
For many viewers, this will be reason enough to watch, and there’s no shame in that game; this is adult cable television’s bread and butter, after all. Luckily, the show has an appeal beyond solid date-night viewing. “Masters of Sex” is based on Thomas Maier’s lively 2009 book of the same title, which tells the story of the rise of William Masters, a renegade who aimed to study sex in the lab, using human subjects
Tip : Date night watch
Imdb rating : 7.9/10

The highest rated new TV series and the breakout hit of the fall starring the attention grabbing James Spader as a career criminal who decides to partner with the FBI for reasons we’ve yet to learn. This is the first series to receive a full season order of 22 full episodes. We love watching intriguing creeps and Spader is up there with the all-time best.
Tip: Must watch for Boston Legal Fans

The biggest hit for Fox, this modern fantasy mystery twist on the classic story featuring Ichabod Crane has greatly improved Fox’s ratings on Monday night up against powerhouse reality shows “The Voice” and “Dancing With The Stars.” It gets a big boost from delayed viewing and Fox is quite satified; it’s the second series to get picked up for the entire season.
Tip: Watch it for the special effects and a decent watch for fantasy fans
5. The Crazy Ones
Imdb rating : 6.7/10
The big winner among the new comedy lineup for CBS on Thursdays starring Robin Williams, who is whipping his competitor Michael J. Fox with his own headline show over at NBC. They won’t be competing with each other all season but it’s a nice victory for CBS nevertheless. UPDATE: CBS announced Oct. 18 it has ordered a full season of “The Crazy Ones.”
Tip : David Kelley is the show's creator and the cast includes Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Must watch comedy this fall. Expect the imdb rating to increase pretty soon.
