FOX released a first look at the 2nd season of their hit show, Empire. Season 2 premieres September 23 at 9/8c.
Empire’s Season 2 premiere date has been announced. The writers announced the show would return September 23rd for an 18-episode season. The new season will be a split one like many other shows have started to do with some episodes playing in the fall and the rest returning in the spring. If you haven’t watched the show or just want to rewatch before the new season starts, catch it on Hulu.
The CW always last on the schedule doesn’t have much coming this 2015-2016 season. They have had a pretty great year renewing everything except Hart of Dixie and The Messengers (which absolutely no one watched). They have picked up only 3 shows from their development slate, 1 for the Fall and 2 coming at midseason. I still think Super Girl (picked up for CBS) should be theirs but I’ll reserve judgment after I watch that pilot. They also moved a couple of their returning shows to new nights giving Julie Plec a night of her own with her shows, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (which I thought should have been put together from the moment The Originals spinoff was a go but what do I know).
Cancelled: Hart of Dixie, The Messengers

Not surprising especially since last night’s episode of Blackish went up in ratings from the 2nd week.
The two new fall series with the biggest premiere ratings are the first to get full-season orders. ABC has handed drama How To Get Away With Murder and comedy Black-ish pickups for two and nine more episodes, respectively, bringing their first-season orders to 15 and 22 episodes, respectively. The size of HTGAWM’s pickup stems from the deal for star Viola Davis. Like other top movie actors who sign on for broadcast series, including The Following‘s Kevin Bacon, they only agree if the orders is limited, so they can also pursue feature projects. No doubt that if it could’ve, ABC would’ve gladly ordered 22 episodes from the red-hot drama.
HTGAWM, part of ABC’s Shondaland Thursday night, opened with a 3.9 Live+same day rating in adults 18-49, and Black-ish started with a 3.3 to finish 1-2 among all new fall series in the demo.
As part of Black-ish‘s full-season pickup…

The CW, the red headed step child of the broadcast networks, went into its upfront presentation today in the spot it has been since its inception, number 5. While their numbers might be anemic compared to the other broadcast networks as well as some cable networks, they are having their best season in three years. They have launched more successful shows in the past year than the other networks (Whose Line Is It Anyway, Arrow, Reign and The Originals). The only problems the network faces are fixing its Monday night. That day has always been a problem for them with shows going to die there. It’s amazing that Hart of Dixie has survived there for the past 3 seasons. From the looks of their new schedule, they have taken care of that Monday night problem by moving The Originals to lift the night. That will definitely help as The Originals ended its season this week on a high, beating Glee on FOX in total viewers and the 18-49 demo. Check out the new Fall 2014 schedule.
