    New Fall Shows... what are you looking forward to?

    The one show that seems to be getting a lot of hype is This is Us. I hope it's good! I am also really jazzed to see Prison Break is coming back!

    Here is a list for all 46! new pilots.

    I actually read through all of these. Usually I make it through about 10 at most & give up, either because none of them interest me or because I don't get the channels. This time I get ALL the channels listed.

    I'm most excited about Frequency. Based on one of my all time favorite movies.
    Also looking forward to:
    Timeless
    Time After Time
    Making Time
    (Are you seeing a pattern here? )
    MacGyver
    The Good Place
    This is Us
    Emerald City
    Bull

    and borderline interest in Riverdale. It caught my eye because it says the small town isn't as innocent or simple as it seems. Hmmmm

    Thanks so much for posting this link to the new shows, mesachick!

    I looked through the whole list and couldn't find a whole lot that appealed to me, but I did find a few that I'm really looking forward to:

    Real Genius
    Still Star Crossed
    This is Us
    Time After Time
    Timeless

    PS I found a YouTube link that actually has many of the trailers for the new shows:

    Fall TV Preview: Our critic's appointment-TV picks

    Fall TV Preview: Our critic's appointment-TV picks

    If you think you’ve seen a lot of TV this year, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Most of us have long been accustomed to the TV stream turning into a flood come September, as the broadcast networks launch their new seasons.

    But fall is no longer just a broadcast game. Cable, which once stayed out of the way, and streaming — which once didn’t exist — are now plunging in as well.


    Atlanta
    FX, Tuesday, 10 ET/PT

    Community’s Donald Glover triumphantly takes his place with TV's best as creator, writer, producer and star of this serio-comedy about three friends trying to break into the music business in Atlanta. Well, that’s the plot. What this brilliant, constantly surprising series is really about is modern American urban poverty: the strain it places on those it afflicts, and the efforts demanded to escape its grip.


    Queen Sugar
    OWN, Wednesday, 10 ET/PT

    Oprah Winfrey and Selma’s Ava DuVernay team for this lovely, all-embracing family drama about three disparate siblings coming together to save their family’s farm. Sugar presents a wide-range of character types and social strata, held together by the show’s sense of compassion and graced by a truly great performance from Rutina Wesley. There’s a real feel here for the things that unite and divide us, both as families and as a nation.


    This Is Us
    NBC, Sept. 20 (Tuesday, 9 ET/PT, following preview Wednesday at 10)

    This is a broadcast rarity: A TV series that has no medical/criminal/legal hook. Instead, this family drama starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and The People v. O.J. Simpson’s remarkable Sterling K. Brown is simply about, well, us — our efforts to relate to each other and our struggles to get by and get along. As for how it intends to tell that story, that’s a surprise — and one you should resist having spoiled if at all possible. So far, NBC's promos have been cooperating. Let's hope that lasts.


    Speechless
    ABC, Sept. 21 (Wednesday, 8:30 ET/PT)

    Minnie Driver stars in this very promising new sitcom as an extremely determined mother fighting to get the best treatment possible for her son with special needs, played by Micah Fowler, who has cerebral palsy. As you'd expect, Fowler brings both freshness and authenticity to the show, which also gets a nice twist on the traditional "supportive husband" role from The Big Bang Theory’s John Ross Bowie.


    Designated Survivor
    ABC, Sept. 21 (Wednesday, 10 ET/PT)

    Kiefer Sutherland (24) makes a welcome return in this intriguing mix of conspiracy thriller and political drama that finds him getting Secret Service protection instead of providing it. He’ll need it, too: He plays a mild-mannered cabinet officer unexpectedly thrust into the presidency after a terrorist attack on the Capitol. Who’s behind the attack? How will his family and the nation adjust? And will Sutherland’s character go all Jack on us and snap the neck of that annoying general? These questions and more are Designated’s to answer.


    Crises in Six Scenes
    Amazon, Sept. 30

    Woody Allen stars in his first TV series as a '60s suburban husband whose life and household are disrupted by a young guest played by Miley Cyrus. Allen is a divisive personality these days, and the minimal clips made available for preview seemed unlikely to win him any new fans. But whatever you think of his personal life or his most recent work, he is one of our most important filmmakers — and a new TV series from him is always going to be worth noting.

    Westworld
    HBO, Oct. 2 (Sunday, 9 ET/PT)

    If you’re looking for the fall show that has the most riding on its figurative shoulders, look no further. With Game of Thrones nearing its end, HBO desperately needs a new hit — and it’s spent a lot of time and money in the hopes that this twist on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie will fill the bill. Once again, we’re in a futuristic, Western-themed amusement park, where the guests use robots to fulfill their every fantasy, dark and otherwise. The risky twist? This time, the story is told from the point of view of the robots.

    No Tomorrow
    CW, Oct. 4 Tuesday (9 ET/PT)

    CW continues its fall winning streak with this perfectly cast romantic comedy about a sweet, risk-averse woman (Tori Anderson) who falls for a risk-embracing stranger (Galavant’s Joshua Sasse) — a man who’s convinced the world’s about to end. The supporting cast is strong, and the stars have charm and chemistry to spare. As long as the show can keep Sasse’s character from crossing that line between eccentric and psychotic, it's tomorrows could be bright.


    Insecure
    HBO, Oct. 9 (Sunday, 10:30 ET/PT)

    If you want the new HBO comedy that’s drawn the most attention, go to Divorce, which marks Sarah Jessica Parker’s return to TV. But if you want one that’s actually funny, rather than sour and studied, and marks the TV debut of a bright new talent in Issa Rae, then the show you want is Insecure. Rae — known for her YouTube show — breaks through here as a black woman in South Los Angeles who finds herself beset by people who want to tell her how to behave and how to fit in. Watch even a little of Insecure, and you’ll realize she fits in just fine as she is.


    Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
    Netflix, Nov. 25

    This long-discussed revival of the beloved WB series is probably the year’s most highly anticipated — and in some corners, dreaded — new show. On the plus side, stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are back, along with the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who was forced out before the show’s last, unsatisfactory season. If you loved Graham and Bledel’s mother/daughter/best friends relationship and Sherman-Palladino’s rapid-fire, pop-culture-laden dialogue, the brief clip provided for preview would seem to indicate nothing much has changed. Which is where the dread comes in, because so often what these revivals really prove is that change is inevitable — and attempts to resist it are futile. Still: Fingers crossed.


    TV, of course, isn’t all about the best, the most promising or most popular. Sometimes, we’re looking for something specific. So, if you’re looking for:

    ***The best of the big TV-star returns: Ted Danson and Kristen Bell’s The Good Place (NBC, Thursday, 8:30 ET/PT, previews Sept. 19 at 10 ET/PT)

    ***The best of the movie adaptations: Lethal Weapon (Fox, Wednesday, 8 ET/PT, Sept. 21)

    ***A female-driven sports drama: Pitch (Fox, Thursday, 9 ET/PT, Sept. 22)

    ***The season’s worst new show, just for comparison’s sake: Notorious (ABC, Thursday, 9 ET/PT, Sept. 22)

    ***A new superhero: Luke Cage (Netflix, Sept. 30)

    ***The best of the time-travel shows: Timeless (NBC, Monday, 10 ET/PT, Oct. 3)

    ***A new legal drama from David E. Kelley: Goliath, starring Billy Bob Thornton (Amazon, Oct. 14)

    ***A show for those who love the British Royals: The Crown (Netflix, Nov. 4)

    ***A salute to the art of making art: Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music (PBS, Monday, 10 ET/PT, Nov. 14)

    These two I'll grab for recording as soon as my DVR allows it.

    Re: New Fall Shows... what are you looking forward to?

    When I read about Designated Survivor it didn't seem to appeal to me, but ABC has been promoting the heck out of the thing & got my attention. I'm now looking forward to it.
    From the list of "best of" new shows, it looks like the ones I'm looking forward to may just be a bust. Oh well. That's normal for me.
