Last week, I spent a lot of time watching trailers and promos for the upcoming TV season, and I made huge list of things I’m going to try out, but really, it mostly all looks kind of lackluster. There are a handful of shows I really care about and am excited for, and most of the rest are only on the list because I like people who are in them. And apparently Disney, parent of ABC, owns my soul. I hope they keep it on a shelf next to Marvel and Lucasfilm.
The TV Guide website has a grid that puts ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and The CW programming head-to-head each day so you can better weep over a mass of shows that all happen at the same time (this is only a problem for me for a half hour on Thursday). It also has an alphabetized list that includes cable and premium channels and premiere dates. And lastly, there’s a calendar of premiere dates, so you can better appreciate just how crowded Thursday, Sept. 26, and Sunday, Sept. 29, are. For real.
I don’t know what y’all are planning to watch (or at least give a shot) but here’s my “If I had all the time in the world” schedule. It includes links to trailers and promos for most new shows on the list. All times are central time.
