Hits, misses in fall TV lineup

So far, it’s been a pretty mild season for fall TV, if you don’t count Bruno Tonioli calling Michael Bolton’s jive probably the worst one ever on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Nothing about the new shows seems as extreme as Bruno’s comment. Some of them probably will stick around for a while – yes, I’m talking about you, “Hawaii Five-O” and “Blue Bloods.” A couple – “Lone Star” and “My Generation” – were canceled quickly.

Even so, there’s a lot to appreciate on the small screen. Here are some impressions of the most entertaining shows and performances of the past few weeks. I don’t know whether Bruno would agree. And I’m afraid to ask him.
