Turf-type tall fescues are the wave of the future. Best seeding results for us have been late November. No watering needed.

I prefer a 4-way blend of turf-type tall fescues. We like "Green Resister" from http://www.lftseed.com
I will tell you this about TTTF in hook season regions like Wisconsin sheer I am located. The UW did has been testing TTTF for the past 5 years in at the research farm which is located in Madison, Wi and after 5 years if there is any KBG in the mix if overruns the TTTF. KBG has remarkable recuperative abilities with it rhizomous growing action. I have seen it on the lawns in my area this year. Last years drought and long winter hammered the lawn hard. After this years rains and helpful aeration the lawns looked great later this summer and fall. No seeding was needed.
