It's that time of year again, when the leaves turn colors and a slew of new programming pops up on our HDTVs. We've pushed the series premieres to the top of each day's listing to help you keep an eye out for some of the new shows coming your way, so now all you have to do is clear enough DVR space to keep up. Check out which selections from this week's long list of possibles caught our eye, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

Gears of War 3
Microsoft and Epic are ready to close out their trilogy on the Xbox 360 with this week's release of Gears of War 3. Its cover based, third person shooter gameplay feels as fresh as it did the first time around and according to our friends at Joystiq, this iteration features "one of the most exciting, consistent campaign experiences on the Xbox 360, or any other system." Assuming the new dedicated servers can keep online play running smoothly this time around, we don't see any reason to miss this go-round with Marcus, Dom, Cole and whichever of the Carmine brothers is still alive.

Workaholics
This was a surprise favorite for us last year, as its stars (and writers) Blake, Adam and Anders deal with the (slow) process of becoming adults while working and living together. It brings more to the table than your average stoner comedy, thanks to its stars / writers from the Mail Order Comedy Troupe. Last season's To Friend A Predator episode took the it's-so-wrong-it's-funny style to its limit and left us in stitches, check out a quick preview of season two embedded after the break.

Person of Interest
One more fall ritual is the debut of an interesting JJ Abrams-helmed show that confuses, intrigues, and eventually horrifically disappoints (on that same note, Fringe also debuts its new season Friday night). This year that show is Person of Interest, a show that features investigators trying to decipher and solve violent crimes before they actually happen. The only really weird thing is how grounded that plot is for a JJ Abrams show. After Lost we promised we'd never go down that rabbit hole again, we'll find out how strong we are when this premieres Thursday night.
