Meg Ryan and Billy Crysial play Sally Albright and Harry Burns. in “When Harry Met Sally . . . ” (Castle Rock Entertainment)

I have been at the Television Critics Association press tour for approximately seven million years, by which I mean almost two weeks. We have a calendar for the fall television season now, and I am getting a better sense of which shows seem to have potential and ideas and which do not. So let me know: What are your most-anticipated new series of the fall? I will give you an initial prognosis.

• Mark Harris goes long on “When Harry Met Sally.”

• So, Beyoncé is doing a “Fifty Shades of Grey” album.

• Defending your artistic choices can, for writers of color, mean defending the validity of your own experiences.

• How the corporate fondness for art can serve artists.

• The music video cinematography of New York.

• When television shows peak and why.

• Apparently, President Obama is very into cooking chili.

• If this is what “Star Wars Episode VII” is going to be about, it sounds very strange.

• The weird history of “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

• So, how is “Gracepoint,” Fox’s remake of “Broadchurch” going to be different from the original?

• I dearly love Ann Dowd.

• New Robyn!
