THE NEW ...

My most anticipated new shows of the fall:

“The Blacklist,” NBC: Always-creepy James Spader should be entertaining as a good guy-turned-bad guy-turned-possible good guy again.

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Fox: Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live”) looks charming as a goofy cop, with Andre Braugher playing the by-the-book captain.

“The Crazy Ones,” CBS: I'm not sure how much crazy I can take, but I'm interested to see Sarah Michelle Geller as Robin Williams' straight man, er, woman.

“Hostages,” CBS: Toni Collette is a powerhouse actress, and I'm looking forward to her portrayal of a doctor whose family is held hostage by Dylan McDermott in this 15-episode show.

“Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” ABC: Joss Whedon directed the pilot of this “Avengers” follow-up. Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson is alive again, and that's good enough for me.

“The Michael J. Fox Show,” NBC: I'd love to see a really strong vehicle for Fox, who has been terrific recently in “The Good Wife” guest stints.

“Trophy Wife,” ABC: Malin Akerman (“27 Dresses”), newly married to lawyer Bradley Whitford (“The West Wing”), learns to deal with his three kids and two ex-wives, including Marcia Gay Harden (“Damages”).

AND THE OLD

Don't forget about our old favorites. These are the plot lines I'm most interested to see resolved in our returning shows.

“Bones,” Fox: Will there finally be wedding bells this season for Booth and Brennan? It sounds like it.

“Castle,” ABC: Does Beckett take the new job? Does she accept Castle's proposal? One way or another, change is coming to the 12 Precinct.

“Chicago Fire,” NBC: Secrets from Severide's past will come back to haunt him. How will Shay deal with her pregnancy disappointments?

“Glee,” Fox: It's hard to imagine a “Glee” universe without Cory Monteith. How the show handles his death will probably say a lot about its future.

“The Good Wife,” CBS: Alicia and Cary's exit from the firm will undoubtedly make big waves.

“The Mentalist,” CBS: Red John will be revealed this fall, the show runners promise us. Will Jane take matters into his own hands (more than usual, I mean)?

“NCIS,” CBS: Cote de Pablo's exit will be tough on the show. Let's hope her last two episodes satisfy the “Tony-Ziva” fans.

“New Girl,” Fox: Now that Nick and Jess are together, Schmidt will go all out trying to break them up. Of course, he has some relationship troubles to deal with himself.

“Parks and Recreation,” NBC: As Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe leave the show, how will Leslie cope with losing Ann?

“Scandal,” ABC: What will Olivia's outing as the president's mistress do to her, both personally and professionally? And what about the White House?
