Every year Fall brings the return of many of our favorite reality shows--not to mention a whole batch of new ones. Here's a list of the reality shows that premiere in September 2012 and where you can find them:

September 4, 2012: Flipping Out, Bravo, 9/8 PM Central. Over the past five seasons the psychotic renovation expert Jeff Lewis has responded to the housing crash by slowly transitioning from house flipper to interior designer. Season 6 will see that transition continue, as well as more staff changes and the added strain of Lewis renovating a house he and his partner, Gage Edward bought in anticipation of starting a family.

September 9, 2012: Breaking Amish, TLC, Sundays, 10/9 PM Central. This new reality show follows five Amish/Mennonite folks exploring the world outside the confines of their isolated religious communities.

September 10, 2012: The Voice, NBC, Mondays and Tuesdays, 8/7 PM Central. The singing competition returns for a third season, and unlike those other shows, The Voice has kept all four of its original judges: Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aquilera.
