Full Lineup for 2009 Paley Television Festival

Fringe, Big Love, The Hills, and More Get Slots at Paley Festival

What do The Hills, Fringe, and The Mentalist have in common? They've all been honored with spots at this year's Paley Television Festival in Los Angeles.


This year's lineup for the festival seems like an especially eclectic group of shows — there's reality, there's online (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), there's drama (Big Love), and there's even something we haven't seen yet: On April 19, the festival will screen the final three as-yet-unaired episodes of Pushing Daisies.

One thing missing from this year's lineup is any tribute to a classic or cult TV show, like last year's Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion. I suppose it's possible that some of the original Beverly Hills 90210 cast members will show up for the 90210 event, but the focus definitely seems to be on the new class.

The festival runs from April 10-23 in Los Angeles. Would any of these shows get you to go? To see the full lineup, just read more.
