The new season, TV Guide-style

Years ago, I'd get very excited to see TV Guide's annual preview of the new fall TV shows. It was nearly as exciting as the Sears Wishbook at Christmas time.

In these days, when new shows come and go almost constantly and can be watched virtually anytime, anyplace, that excitement has become a thing of the past. I follow TV Guide on Twitter, but haven't looked at the magazine in years. Yet, this gallery of Fall Preview covers presses nostalgic buttons. I'm sure it will for many of you, too.
