Your ultimate guide for what to watch on TV this Fall


Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. (EST) on FOX

Although the show follows a group of chronically ill children, the coming-of-age dramedy aims to celebrate life, rather than death. While we're excited to get to know the cast of fresh faces, we can't wait to see what Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer will bring to the table. 


Thursday, Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. (EST) on ABC

Shonda Rhimes strikes again. If you're as big a fan of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" as we are, you might want to mark this on your calendar. While Shondaland always brings crazy, crazy drama, it also always offers a thought-provoking take on morality and ethical code -- think Meredith's big clinical trial move and well, all of "Scandal." Viola Davis herself called her lead role "messy and mysterious." Call us intrigued!

"A TO Z"

Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9:30 p.m. (EST) on NBC

A to Z is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, "Mad Men") and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, "How I Met Your Mother"). Both Feldman and Milioti have great screen presence and chemistry. If rom-com shows are your thing, tune in for the pilot -- just so long as you can forgive Milioti for the ending of "HIMYM."


Full season available for stream Sept. 26 on Amazon

There are a few reasons we're interested in this one. First, we have Jeffrey Tambor, or George Bluth, Sr. from "Arrested Development" as a father who reveals he's transgender to his family. Creator Jill Soloway has said that she pictured Tambor as Mort/Moira when writing the character. We have no doubt that he'll knock it out of the park. Second, we're interested in seeing how Amazon's original series lives up to Netflix favorites "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards."


Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9 p.m. (EST) on FOX

Fans of the critically-acclaimed British murder mystery "Broadchurch," which follows the aftermath of the tragic death of a young boy in a small town, may be skeptical of this U.S. remake, but it's worth a shot. The trailer itself is likely to draw a few tears from you.

While the first two installments of the 10-part miniseries mimics its predecessor scene-by-scene, according to Variety, it will begin to diverge rapidly from the original thereafter. 


Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 9:30 (EST) on ABC

Okay, this show has major potential. It pokes fun at political-correctness in a "Modern Family"-type way, and the writing is pretty hysterical. Andre Johnson has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow, four kids, and a colonial home in the 'burbs. But success might have brought too much assimilation for his black family. With a little help from his dad, Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family.


Monday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on FOX

Creating anything Batman-related is definitely a tall order, so it was a smart move to tell the "untold origin story" of the great DC Comics villains and vigilantes. We're a bit skeptical about Ben McKenzie in this leading role. While we loved him in "The O.C.," "Southland" failed to really pick up. Nonetheless, we're intrigued by the premise and, of course, the adorable cast of young heroes -- especially the cute kid Bruce Wayne!


Friday, Oct. 10 at 8:30 p.m. (EST) on FOX

Stand-up comedienne Cristela Alonzo looks to join the ranks of other crazy, talented female-centric comedies with this upcoming sitcom. Since her ambitious, sassy lead character might immediately draw comparisons to Mindy Kaling's role in "The Mindy Project," we're interested in seeing what this show will offer on its own. 


Sunday, Oct. 5 at 9:30 p.m. on FOX

We know, we know. Mulaney has received some pretty negative reviews after the release of its pilot, with some saying it's "just not funny." But we can't seem to accept the fact that John Mulaney could possibly produce something horrible, not to mention his crazy talented cast and crew. We have faith that Lorne Michaels will not let this ship sink! We'll definitely give this show a chance after its premiere.
