As per usual, after upfronts, I share how my fall TV schedule is shaping up. This schedule includes ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, & NBC. This schedule does not include Syfy, USA, TNT, AMC, FX, FXX, BBC America, Freeform, HBO, Showtime, etc…

For those new to the blog, I plan to watch the Pilot episode of all of the new shows (in CAPS) below. After the Pilot viewing, some shows will be automatic rejects but most I will hold onto for a couple of episodes before I make a final decision as I know that pilots aren’t really a great representations of a show as a whole. By winter hiatus, I will have determined which new shows I will add to my schedule for the entire first season’s run.

For the returning shows, if you’re wondering if I really watch all of these shows, the answer is yes. A handful of these I am behind on, most of which I’ll be caught up on by the fall. A handful, like Law & Order SVU for instance I only watch if there’s a certain guest star or subject matter I’m interested in viewing. Otherwise, I’m caught up on the majority of these shows and tweet about, FB, and/or review them quite often. For TV reviews, click here.

As for cancelled shows, I’m bummed about ABC’s American Crime, Time After Time, The CW’s Frequency & No Tomorrow, Fox’s Pitch, Rosewood, Making History, and APB, and NBC’s Powerless. More on my thoughts about cancelled series and new series are at the respective links: ABCCBS, The CWFox, & NBC

The new shows I am most excited for:
ABC: Marvel’s Inhumans, Ten Days in the Valley, Deception, The Mayor
The CW: Black Lightning
CBS: Star Trek: Discovery, Young Sheldon, Me Myself & I
NBC: Rise
Fox: The Gifted, The Orville, Ghosted

Of the above shows, I am most excited for Marvel’s Inhumans, Black Lightning, Rise, The Gifted, The Orville, and Ghosted. What new series are you most excited for?

Okay, here’s what my TV schedule will shape up to look like this fall!
