There are already plenty of shows about parents and family on television -- "Up All Night," "Parenthood," "Modern Family," "Raising Hope." But in case you don't have enough on your DVR, there are several more on the way this fall.
"The New Normal," "Ben and Kate" and "Guys With Kids" make their debuts this month, and we've given you the rundown on each show in the chart below. Still not enough for you? "Call the Midwife" premieres on PBS, and "How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)" airs on ABC in 2013.

|The Good||"So much heart, it feels almost old-fashioned." - David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle||"There’s genuine emotional intelligence and wit to the dynamic between the titular characters, and an offbeat sensibility that keeps this from straying into overwrought or formulaic territory." - Jace Lacob, The Daily Beast||Jimmy Fallon, executive producer|
|The Bad||"Lots of attention-getting jokes, but not a whole lot of funny ones" - Alan Sepinwall, HitFix||"Ben and Kate felt like watching a Kate Hudson romantic comedy and FOX’s Raising Hope in one half hour, but it isn’t that smart, on either side." - An Nicholson, Cliqueclack||"The storylines in the episode are as old as the sitcom itself: pissing off a wife and then making it up to her, and crashing and burning on a date, but now...it's with kids!" - Jenna Mullins, E! Online|
|The Adorable||"I don't look old enough to be a grandmother" -Jane Forrest (Ellen Barkin) "Great grandmother" -Shania Clemmons (Bebe Wood)||"Hey, Mom, good morning, what are we doing today?" -5-year-old Maddie wakes up Kate with bedhead||Baby fist-bump!|

Bebe Wood, "The New Normal" (NBC)
At just 11 years old, Bebe Wood is a scene-stealer in this very mature new show. She plays Shania, the wise-beyond-her-years 8-year-old of Goldie (Georgia King), the single mom looking to start a new life for herself and her daughter by being a surrogate for a gay couple.
Samantha Logan, "666 Park Avenue" (ABC)
15-year-old Samantha Logan plays Nona Clark, one of the youngest residents in the tony (but haunted) Manhattan apartment building in "666 Park Avenue," and it's also obvious that she got some intriguing abilities of her own. In a cast full of heavy hitters, Logan still manages to stand out.
Maggie Elizabeth Jones, "Ben & Kate" (Fox)
Eight-year-old Maggie Elizabeth Jones commands attention in every "Ben & Kate" scene she's in. Luckily for us, it's quite a few scenes. In "Ben & Kate," Jones plays Maddie, Kate's daughter and often Ben's partner in mischief.
The Kids, "Guys With Kids" (NBC)
The young kids of "Guys With Kids" may not be old enough to walk or talk, but what's not to like about three cute babies? They get extra "Awww" points for having to listen to corny jokes and a laugh track at such a young age.
Avriella Ford, "The Mindy Project" (Fox)
With only one scene in the first episode of "The Mindy Project," Avriella Ford left quite the cute impression. Playing the daughter of Anna Camp's character Gwen, Ford held her own in a scene with series star and creator Mindy Kaling and we can't wait to see them go toe-to-toe again.
Isabella Cramp, "The Neighbors" (ABC)
Isabella Cramp plays Abby Weaver on "The Neighbors," where she displays hand-stand skills and shows off a high-pitched scream when her alien neighbor Dick Butkus reveals himself to be a green, gooey native of the planet Zabvron. Cramp is only 7-years-old, but she's already a veteran of TV shows including "Happy Endings" and "Mike & Molly," and as if she couldn't get any more adorable, she's also <a href="https://twitter.com/isabellacramp" target="_hplink">on Twitter</a>.
Morgan Hinkleman, "Revolution" (NBC)
As the child version of "Revolution's" central character Charlie -- the adult version is played by Tracy Spiridakos -- we don't get to see all that much of seven-year-old Morgan Hinkleman, but she certainly made an impression. After the electricity goes out all over the world in the pilot episode of the new NBC drama, young Charlie eats perhaps the last bite of ice cream she'll ever have and her dad tells her to remember the taste. Poor Charlie. But there's a good chance there will be more of Morgan since <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/24/revolution-nbc-jon-favreau_n_1699753.html" target="_hplink">"Revolution" executive producer Eric Kripke told HuffPost TV</a>, "We're gonna have flashbacks in every episode. We call them epi-pens of adrenaline, of what happened in those first days after the blackout and how people survived, what happened, how they made their way out of the cities, how they found food and water."
Lennon and Maisy Stella, "Nashville" (ABC)
The adorable <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/31/lennon-and-maisy-call-your-girlfriend-robyn-cover_n_1558608.html" target="_hplink">Stella sisters gained overnight fame when a video of them singing Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend"</a> with fancy handwork surfaced on YouTube. Lennon, now 13, and Maisy, 8, had the Internet charmed and many opportunities arose. The adorable sisters booked a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/10/lennon-and-maisy-nashville_n_1661528.html" target="_hplink">guest stint on ABC's new country drama "Nashville,</a>" which also happens to be where the girls live with their musical parents, who form the band The Stellas. Lennon and Maisy are already getting praise from their co-stars. <a href="https://twitter.com/lennonandmaisy/status/240082418474823680" target="_hplink">Clare Bowen tweeted</a>, "Phenomenal forces of musical nature! So honoured to be working with such amazing creatures."
