(Newser) – It’s never too early to start scheduling your DVR for fall’s new TV. Entertainment Weekly critic Ken Tucker lists the 10 shows he’s most eagerly anticipating:

  1. Mr. Sunshine: Matthew Perry is the owner of a sports arena and has Allison Janney for a boss. Tucker calls the dialogue “sharp and snappy” and says this “could be another part of the sitcom renaissance.”
  2. No Ordinary Family: Michael Chiklis, Julie Benz, and their family develop superpowers. With that star power and producer Greg Berlanti (Everwood, Eli Stone) on board, “you’d be crazy not to be curious about how they’ll pull off this concept.”

  1. Undercovers: Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are married CIA spies. “Take a sturdy old TV concept, cast charming lead actors, and run it through the brain of producer JJ Abrams and there's no way this isn't going onto my DVR schedule.”
  2. Running Wilde: Wealthy Will Arnett woos eco-friendly Keri Russell. Considering it’s “from some folks from Arrested Development,” Tucker is “dyin’ to see how this one plays out.”
  3. Hawaii Five-O: A reboot that looks promising, starring Alex O’Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, Scott Caan, and Grace Park.
