<I>Homeland</I>: Is This Showtime Series Actually Fall’s Best New Show?

While we've been busy writing about all the big network premieres, Showtime quietly released what has the potential of ending up as the best show of this fall.

Then came the much-anticipated Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Because everyone loves a slut. And just yesterday it was announced that the premium channel has picked up United States of Tara, a new comedy series penned by tattooed It-screenwriter Diablo Cody about a woman with dissociative identity disorder. Because if we learned anything from Britney, it's that mental disorder is the new black.
