    Was looking around at some online streaming sights and In noticed on abc.com a few of he new shows were available to preview the pilot. The Goldbergs was one and I watched a few minutes of it (VERY Wonder Years like, with a bit of The Middle thrown in). I like what I saw, but not sure it will play in Peoria. It's also on the ABC app for iOS.

    Did USAToday ever publish their Fall TV preview?

    I just checked the schedule. It looks like for returning shows I am committed to the following.

    Sun - 2 hours
    Mon - 2.5 hours
    Tue - 2.5 hours
    Wed - 3 hours
    Thu - 2 hours
    Fri - 0 hours
    Sat - 0 hours

    I don't watch as much tv as I used to but I think there is some room in the schedule to add in some shows. Since I never watch things live that 12 hours is more like 8 without commercials.

    The ones I am definitely checking out are

    Agents of Shield
    Once Upon a Time In Wonderland
    Michael J Fox Show

    With four tuners available to me now I may just record a bunch of premieres and see what sticks.

    I was shocked at the number of hours, then reread and saw it was returning shows only. I don't even want to think how many hours per week I am going to record, let alone watch!

    If I am being honest that excludes some of the A&E and History channel shows that I watch when they are on (Storage Wars, Counting Cars, etc)

    I don't want to add to many new shows though.

    The Genie is great in that respect. My problem is that I just added my 98th SL. Luckily just about all the new Fall Shows are there, but if I come up with 3 more things to watch, I'm in trouble.

    If all the new Fall shows are there, I'll bet you lose at least 10 off your list pretty quick :)

    I have about 45 right now. I'll probably wind up with about 10 more I figure, which still would be too many for my old HR2x box. So having the extra SL space is nice too.

    You don't really even need that anymore, now that they have the ability to search far in advance. Just set up a series recording for Enlisted, which doesn't even premiere until January.

    Not all the new shows, just the ones that interest me, but the point is still valid regardless.

    I have only 7.5 hours of returning shows this fall but I have 13 hours of new shows and I expect to drop at least 1/3 of that after a couple of episodes.

    i've never counted days and hours. if i don't have time to watch, and recordings start piling up or drive space gets low, i delete my least favorite shows & sp's until it evens out or time frees up.

    there's usually a couple of shows that i'm already thinking about dropping, but hadn't gotten around to doing so.

    I may regret this but i noticed that Tivo had a category for New shows. I told it to just record the category.

    Hopefully it will catch the premieres without me needing to be aware of the actual premiere dates and I can choose my shows from there.

    Ok, now I just did that too. I could have misspelled something in a WL so this should cover that base, plus it may pick up something I was either unaware of or just not into enough at first glance to seek it out, but if it records, I'll take a look at it.
