Well this fall looks better than last year when I picked up no new shows. It is also entirely possible I am being less selective in hopes of finding a gem.
- A Million Little Things (Sept. 26) – It is being compared to This is Us but about a group of friends rather than a family. It all starts with the suicide of one friend and I guess is about their journey from there. Its success depends on the characters. If they are interesting and have good relationships, I’ll stick around.
- Single Parents (Sept. 26) – A comedy about a group of single parents. The concept alone isn’t that appealing but Taran Killam and Leighton Meester are enough for me to give it a shot.
- I Feel Bad (Oct. 4) – A comedy about not being perfect. That isn’t much of a selling point but Amy Poehler is the Executive Producer and she has never let me down so that means I’ll give this show at least one episode.
- The Connors (Oct. 16) – I enjoyed Roseanne and quite frankly feel the show can go on without it’s title character. I assume it will continue with its same type of comedy and if we get more David even better.
- The Kids are Alright (Oct. 16) – A comedy about an Irish-Catholic family in the 1970s – yes please. I enjoy a good family comedy (I’d be fine if this had Real O’Neals vibes) and the 1970s fascinate me so…let’s go.
- Legacies (Oct. 25) – A Vampire Diaries and Originals spinoff focusing on Klaus’s daughter as she attends the Salvatore School. Need I say more?
