Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain
September 20 kicks off fall tv premiere week! The 697th season of Dancing With the Stars(ok, I think it’s 30) premieres Monday. I have my eye on at least one cast member: WWE’s The Miz. He’s very entertaining. If you’re not familiar, get ready! CNS will get my viewing on Monday’s, though. Apparently on The Neighborhood, Cedric the Entertainer and Max Greenfield’s characters find out they might be related. That should be fun! Bob Hearts Abishola has me wondering if it might turn dramatic. Dad takes son to Nigeria. Mom and Bob have an idea that, despite outward appearances, it might be against his will. Sounds like a fun upcoming season, no? Certainly will be something to keep an eye on.
Tuesday the 21st brings the season premiere of New Amsterdam on NBC. We move to October 19 for Bachelorette and series premiere of Queens on ABC. November 16 brings The Flash and Riverdale to the CW.
Wednesday the 22nd brings The Goldbergs, the series premiere of the Wonder Years reboot, The Conners, Home Economics and A Million Little Things. I’m pleasantly surprised The Connors has been able to make it, Home Economics is one of my favorite new comedies. Topher Grace’s(That 70’s Show) Tom has been writing a book about his dysfunctional family. On the last season finale, they found out about it. This season should be fun. A Million Little Things returns at 9 on the 22nd and, after that cliffhanger last season, wow! I have no idea what to expect. Last season left us with Gary confronting Sophie’s attacker at his house. That finale took awhile to get over.
October 6 brings realty show Tough As Nails back to CBS as well as the debut of CSI: Vegas. September 23 is the day for all Law & Order fans to rejoice: a two hour SVU premiere followed by L&O: Organized Crime. September 30 brings Station 19 and Greys Anatomy and Big Sky back to ABC. It’s also the regular night for NBC’s SVU. October 7 brings the premieres of Young Sheldon, United States of Al, series premiere of a new comedy, Ghosts and the premiere of B Positive. Thursday October 7 is where Bull lands, moving from Monday night. How will moving from Monday to Thursday treat the TAC crew? We’ll see.
October sees the premieres of Magnum P.I. and Blue Bloods(the 1st), October 21 sees the anticipated, Megan Boone-less, premiere of The Blacklist on NBC. The Equalizer season 2 premieres October 10. All our favorite tv shows are back! So sit back, relax and catch up on those cliffhangers and your favorites!
