*denotes new shows premiering this season; short synopses and trailers have been provided!


September 9

-        "Shameless" (Season 9, Showtime)
-       * "You" (Lifetime): A clever bookstore manager relies on his savvy Internet know-how to make the woman of his dreams fall in love with him. It looks like Lonely Boy (Penn Badgley) takes a dark turn from "Gossip Girl" into the world of "You"...


September 12

-        * "Manifest" (NBC): After a turbulent, but routine, flight, the passengers and crew discover the world has aged five years, yet no time has passed for them, and soon a deeper mystery unfolds. We haven’t seen anything like this since "Lost", and I for one, am excited to see where it goes.


September 25

-        "This Is Us" (Season 3, NBC)
-        * "New Amsterdam" (NBC): A new medical director breaks the rules to heal the system at America's oldest public hospital. A new "Grey’s Anatomy" that might actually withstand the test of time!

-        "Chicago PD" (Season 6, NBC)
-        "Chicago Fire" (Season 7, NBC)

September 30               -        "Saturday Night Live" (Season 44, NBC):


September 30

-        "Bob's Burgers" (Season 9, FOX)
-        * "God Friended Me" (CBS): An atheist's life is turned upside down when he is "friended" by God on Facebook. This synopsis doesn’t really do it justice, "God Friended Me" actually looks really good!




October 1

-        * "The Neighborhood" (CBS): A friendly guy from the Midwest tries to fit in in a tough L.A. neighborhood.
-        * "Happy Together" (CBS): Claire and Peter are married and live a life full of routine, but when megastar Cooper shows up in front of their doorstep, they get dragged into his life of fame and all that comes with it. (P.S. Important information: this new comedy is inspired by a time when executive producers Ben Winston and Harry Styles lived together so I’ll just leave that there.)

-        "Arrow" (Season 7, The CW)

October 16
