    The CW seems to agree with you. Lately, they’ve waited to start their season a few weeks after the major networks.

    Houston/Bren...
    The new shows I'm trying, as premiere week arrives...

    Sitcoms (because I'll try almost any sitcom)
    Bob ❤️ Abishola -- I like Billy Gardell, and it's a Chuck Lorre creation. Doesn't sound great, but I'll keep an open mind.
    Perfect Harmony -- Will I make it to the end of the pilot?
    The Unicorn -- Walton Goggins. Very high hopes for this one.
    Carol's Second Act -- Like Patricia Heaton, but this looks terrible.
    Sunnyside -- Not a Kal Penn fan, but the premise sounds interesting.
    Almost Family -- Will I make it to the first commercial break?

    Dramas
    Prodigal Son -- Strong leads, but probably not my cup o' tea.
    Emergence -- I have this on a VERY short leash, ABC thankyouverymuch.
    Stumptown -- Cobie! Looking forward to this.
    Evil -- No idea, but will try it.

    This thread has been very helpful, thank you all. Just when I thought I'd gone completely all streaming, I've found some new shows worth trying here.

    Godfather of Harlem
    Stumptown
    Prodigal Son
    The Unicorn
    Mixed-ish
    Sunnyside

    To be added:
    Batwoman (premiering Oct 6th)
    Deputy (premiering mid-season)
    Tommy (premiering mid-season)

    Which are a silly anachronism, and I suspect not long for this world...

    As it all starts this week, I STILL must say, very little I'm excited about, actually NOTHING I'm excited about. I think I set up about 5-6 SPs and I expect to cancel about half of them after first viewing. I suppose if it continues like this, It'll free up more time to watch Neflix and AP.

    I’m the same. The only one I’m really looking forward to is Batwoman but I’m a sucker for the Arrowverse.

    The one I'm excited about is Stumptown...I'm a big fan of the comics (which seem to have been made-for-television), and the casting is excellent.

    I like the Bourne movies so I'm hoping Treadstone is good.

    Here's another mid-season premier I'm planning to add. A 10-episodes mini series from the creator of Mr. Robot, on USA this coming January.

    Nothing on network tv so far has made me want to see a second episode.

    I know what you mean. I couldn't get past the first episodes of Sunnyside or Mixed-ish. Sunnyside in particular was really bad, and apparently the network agrees because s being exiled to the NBC app.

    But, I've enjoyed the Unicorn and Stumptown, and although I rightly expected my wife to like the Unicorn, she surprised me by finding Stumptown fun too. I've found Prodigal Son to be so-so. Batwoman is a disappointment. So it's been a mixed bag.

    There's still hope for the mid-season premiers. But it looks like the best one will be on cable, not network TV: Briarpatch.

    I agree, I have seen some to be hopeful for coming mid-season. But then again, I am always optimistic. Until I see the content being touted.

    Is there a midseason thread? I just added OnePasses for these premiers:
    • Vienna Blood (begins tonight on PBS)
    • Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens (sneak peak tomorrow on Comedy Central)

    Effectively a similar thing, there's a hodgepodge of trailers and information in both the Official New Shows Thread and the Show Updates: Canceled, Renewed, or Ending Thread.
