5 Shows To Watch This Fall


Fall première dates are coming up and there are too many things to watch. No worries. It was extremely difficult but I have narrowed it down to the 5 shows that you must watch.

1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX) Premieres Tuesday, September 17 @8:30/7:30c.

I have a thing for André Braugher (Men Of A Certain Age, Gideon’s Crossing). I think he’s absolutely wonderful. So when I saw that this show got picked up by Fox, I was excited. The show is a comedy about is about how members of a Brooklyn squad deal with a new very straight-laced and tightly wound police chief played by Braugher. The comedy for most of the show comes from the interplay between Braugher and the squad’s lead cop, played by Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live), who just can’t seem to adjust. This show looks hilarious and I have read nothing but good things about it. Samberg had many great moments on SNL so he will bring the funny.  I just really want them to let Braugher be great. I need him to be on a show that people give a chance. Hopefully this one is it.

2. The Michael J Fox Show (NBC) Premieres Thursday, September 26 @9/8c.

Michael J. Fox hasn’t been the star of a show since he left Spin City in 2000 because of his Parkinson’s disease. He has done a lot of guest stints on different shows since then; my favorite being his arcs on The Good Wife. It’s nice that now he is returning to television full-time and in something that is really good at, comedy. The new show emulates the actor’s life a bit in that it is about a news anchor at the top of his game who decided to leave his job to spend more time with his family. After being at home for 5 years, his family is ready for him to leave the house and return to work. The cast also includes Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad) and Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme, Suits). I saw part of this pilot in one of my classes last semester and I really liked it so I can’t wait to see the finished product.

It’s that time of the year again. The upfronts here. It’s the time when all the broadcast networks are going to unveil their fall schedules. We usually have to wait until the day of each network’s upfront to find out for sure what has been cancelled or renewed but this year that news has been coming all week.
I always get really excited about upfronts but I’m especially excited for this year’s because one of my projects for grad school was to play ABC exec and put together an upfront for class (shoutout to my group members Emma, Debbie and Yijing). It was soo fun so I’m looking forward to seeing how accurate we were with what got cancelled and what was picked up. Here is the schedule for the broadcast networks to unveil their schedule.

NBC – Monday 5/13

Fox – Monday Afternoon 5/13

ABC – Tuesday 5/14

CBS – Wed 5/15

CW – Thursday 5/16

A lot of cancellations and pickups have already been announced. For those check out TVLine, The Wrap, Deadline, or Hollywood Reporter. I will post as each schedule becomes available. Stay tuned for updates.

Mid-Season New and Returning Shows (2013)


The holidays are here and all your shows are in reruns or got cancelled (I’ll miss you Emily Owens, M.D). I know you are pretty anxious for their return. Don’t fret, you can find the dates of every single show’s return date as well as new shows that will be premiering this Winter at the bottom of this post. Shows return as early today, the 1st of the year. Here are some the returning and new shows I’m looking forward to.

The Americans (FX) Series premiere January 21 @ 10/9c.

Keri Russell back on television?? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! And playing a bad ass?? Double YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! FX has stepped up their game when it comes to their programming (Sons of Anarchy, Justified, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,etc) and this show looks like it will be no exception. This show set in the Cold World era stars Keri Russell (Felicity, Mission Impossible 3) and Matthew Rhys (Brothers & Sisters, The Edge of Love) as KGB officers, who are working as sleeper agents trained to impersonate American citizens in Washington D.C. This is going to be great. Hopefully this show will do well and keep Russell on TV where she belongs.

The Good Wife (CBS) Season 4 resumes January 6th @ 10/9c

Season 4 hasn’t been the best but it’s still been better than half the shows on television. This season we are in the middle of has been very hit and miss, mostly because everything is not in sync. The storyline with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) and her husband, played by Marc Warren (Doctor Who, Mad Dogs) is one of the biggest missteps that has happened to this show. The show creators, Robert and Michelle King, told TV Guide recently, they are going to fix things. They stated:

“You don’t give James Bond a girlfriend. Some characters you actually don’t want to see that much backstory. We’re adjusting. No matter where we went, this was not a place where the audience wanted to go.”

Hopefully the ship gets righted with the rest of the season. Check out the promo for the next new episode, “Boom De Ya Da.”
