I get the same feeling.
I was a huge Bones fan for its first three seasons but I've gradually lost interest in the show. I still watch it out of habit and I still really like Boreanaz and Deschanel but I hardly pay attention to what's going on in the episodes unless Bones and Booth are bantering. I don't think I'll be checking out their spinoff The Finder.
I don't watch Fringe but I think it's great it continues to exist. The Fringe fans I know seem to really love it.
Besides checking out Terra Nova, nothing else changes or is added for me this fall. Just Bones and The Simpsons as per usual.

Ever since the Bones Season 4 finale (which IMO was horrible), I've been very...eh...about the show. Every moment between those two (Bones/Booth) seems cheesy and forced, and I don't think it was always like that. The one episode (Season 6 Episode 19) that set up the spinoff wasn't too bad, and I'll happily add it to the DVR.
I just hope that whatever is replacing Lie to Me and Human Target is watchable, because I haven't been this disappointed about a show/shows being cancelled since Life.
Besides The Finder (Bones spinoff), Terra Nova and Simon Cowell's The X Factor, here's a brief rundown of next season's new shows:
I Hate My Teenage Daughter (working title) Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran are best friends whose daughters end up becoming “mean girls”, just like the ones that tortured them throughout high school.
New Girl (working title) Recently single Zooey Deschanel moves in with three single guys in this single-cam relationship comedy.
Allen Gregory Fish-out-of-water animated comedy from and starring Jonah Hill about a pretentious, “sophisticated” 7-year-old who, after being homeschooled all his life, attends elementary school for the first time.
Alcatraz Mind-bending police thriller from JJ Abrams about Alcatraz inmates from the past who mysteriously appear in the present day. With Sam Neill and Jorge Garcia
Napoleon Dynamite Animated comedy based on the movie and featuring all of the original cast.
Touch Kiefer Sutherland’s autistic boy can see number-based patterns that connect with a cast of seemingly unrelated people. From Tim Kring, of Heroes’ fame/infamy.
Based on write-ups alone, the only one I'm *not* interested in seeing, even one time, is Allen Gregory. I'm very interested in New Girl and Touch.
I like Bones and with the surprising yet not surprising death from last week, its been one of the better shows of the year. If they keep Michael Clark Duncan, I will watch Finder. Terra Nova could be amazing, but like Falling Skies on TNT, it seems like a good premise for a movie then a show. Sadly, that is a lot of what the new pilots have been looking like for years now. Good ideas for movies, but can't draw out a full season and beyond. At least the comedies stay, but I am with Its False, we don't need an animated Napolean Dynamite.
I always love a good episode focusing on Mr. Burns. Unfortunately, this wasn't one of the better ones. I liked Burns getting ragdolled around in the prison, but the rest of it just seemed somewhat off.
