    Fox is debuting a bunch of their fall shows the week of 9/16. Probably has to do with them wanting to get in a few episodes before their baseball break.

    New shows I'm interested in are pretty slim pickin's. I've got the following shows planned to watch at least once or twice, then I'll evaluate them and take it from there:

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
    Almost Human
    Sleepy Hollow
    Hostages
    Intelligence
    Blacklist
    The Tomorrow People
    Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
    The Millers
    Reign
    The Crazy Ones
    Dracula
    We're the Fugawis

    I don't expect a few of these to survive my To Do list past the first couple of weeks, but I plan on giving them a look anyway. I just watched the first episode of Fugawis and it's sort of a like a Duck Dynasty type of show.

    I generally tend to shy away from sitcoms, but I've been a Robin Williams fan since Mork and Mindy, hence the inclusion of The Crazy Ones. I've left a few shows off the list simply because I don't have enough time to watch every show I'd like to so a few shows didn't make it, like the new MJ Fox show. I'm also probably going to axe some of my existing shows because I really need a life. :eek:

    I fully expect S.H.I.E.L.D. to succeed based on the success of The Avengers movie and the fact that people are finally starting to recognize Joss Whedon as a real talent.

    I saw an article on the MSN website the other day that made me laugh. There were two links to lists of the 10 best new shows to watch and the 10 worst shows to avoid. Trophy Wife made both lists, which tells me that the folks at MSN don't collaborate on their findings.

    I'm not sure how long Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human, Hostages, or Intelligence will last as a couple of them seem to be retreads of old ideas (Jake 2.0 vs. Intelligence; Almost Human vs. at least 2 or 3 other failed attempts at using Androids or robots). I don't see Hostages as being more than a mini-series, but Toni Collette is in it so I figured I'd take a look. Sleepy Hollow will be the most interesting to see what develops of this group.

    Reign is another period piece on the CW, probably littered with lots of pretty teens, but I like the genre so it made the list. Dracula features Jonathon Rhys Meyers of The Tudors and looks quite interesting.

    Of the ones listed above, I think S.H.I.E.L.D., The Tomorrow People, and Blacklist appear to be the most promising with Sleepy Hollow and Dracula piquing my interest.

    Is this a 'regular cable' DVR? If so, how? CableCards only do 6 tuners.. so does it literally have 2 cablecards inside of it? (Like OLED S3s required [S or M] and TivoHDs _can_ do, with S cards).

    I am looking for it too. The 9/13 issue won't have it either (I subscribe to the digital copies and already have that issue). They are covering Breaking Bad.

    So it should be the 9/20 issue.

    Maybe the tv season just feels later to me because it feels like the EW issue is later this year? I feel like I usually have a week, maybe 2, with the preview issue before the tv actually starts.

    I'm sure someone will now post historical dates for the EW tv preview issue and prove me wrong. ;)

    That's because they only discussed real TV, not "(un)reality TV.":rolleyes:

    I'm going to be checking out a lot of new shows. Strangely enough, half of them aren't even on the schedule yet (mid season replacements). I'm not really all that excited about any of them but I figure I'm taking a large enough sample size that something is bound to pique my interest.

    Almost Human
    Sleepy Hollow
    The Blacklist
    Hostages
    Shield
    The Tomorrow People
    Reign
    OUAT in Wonderland
    Atlantis

    Gang Related
    Crisis
    Crossbones
    Believe
    Killer Women
    Resurrection
    Intelligence
    Star-Crossed
    The 100

    Legend of Korra. Season 2 starts this Friday night on Nick. Season 1 had definite pacing problems, but was limited to 12 episodes with no clue on a renewal. So far what I've seen of S2 looks great.

    FYI,

    The first episode of the new 'Ironside' and 'Welcome to the Family' are available from the NBC website or alternative means.

    An Awesome show indeed. I do hope it's longer in length, closer to the original Airbender show.

    Those first episodes are available from Amazon Instant Video for free but can't be downloaded to my Tivo HD. :(
