I know that at least Survivor is starting the week before 9/23, though.
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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

If it looks like space will be an issue, I'll just hang a 2TB drive off the Genie.
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.
