TV Shows to Look Out for this Fall

As of September 23, the weather transitioned from summer to fall, not only changing the temperatures and the color of the leaves, but also bringing the start of new season premieres and series premieres of a plethora of television shows. These television shows are action-packed, drama-intensified, investigative, comical, eye-catching shows that are either picking up where they left off from the previous season or beginning their stories. According to the Associated Press, ABC, CBS and NBC have the highest television ratings because of televisions shows like Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Modern Family,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Once Upon A Time,” “NCIS,” “Person of Interest,” “The Good Wife,” “CSI,” “48 Hours,” “The Amazing Race,” “Grimm” and “Bad Judge,” to name a few from each network. Shows from other networks premiering this season include “Family Guy,” “American Dad,” “The Simpsons,” “American Horror Story,”  “The Big Bang Theory,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “South Park,” “Awkward,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gotham” and “The Walking Dead.” Of these television shows, “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Scandal,” “Gotham,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Good Wife,” “American Horror Story,” and “Family Guy” seem to be the talk of the entertainment crowds.

“Scandal” premiered on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m., picking up where it left off. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) are MIA until Olivia finds out that her colleague from Olivia Pope and Associates (OPA)  was found murdered, leaving her in devastation and determination to find out who was in charge of this terrible event. Throughout the season, the show will unravel with Fitz and his family mourning the loss of their son and trying to regain control over the White House and Olivia and OPA being back in business, fixing people’s problems and helping the White House. As always, there will be a thrill-seeking moment or two giving viewers a shocking reveal of an event to come.

Shonda Rhimes, who also produced “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal,” has a new hit show, “How to Get Away with ­­­­­­­­Murder.” This new show is about a criminal law professor, Annalise Keating, who tries to get her ambitious and determined law students to work at her firm after she assigns them to come up with the best defensive argument for a case she is working. In the pilot episode, Annalise introduces the course as “How to Get Away with Murder.” As the season unravels, Professor Keating will give her students necessary tools to become the best lawyers they can be. “How to Get Away with Murder” airs every Thursday night at 10 p.m. after “Scandal.”

America’s favorite horror show, “American Horror Story,” is back. This season, “Freak Show,” is about the last freak show in America in the early 1950s and how they struggled to survive and stay in business. The cast members will include some of the same faces from previous seasons as well as some new ones. Catch this freak show on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.

“Gotham,” which stars Jada Pinkett-Smith, is a series that tells the stories based on DC and Marvel comics that has never been revealed to the audience. As the season unwinds you will find that you will be staying tune to each week’s episode. A new episode will air every Monday at 8pm.

These are just a few shows that are rolling this fall and a little about them. If you do not have access to cable to watch these shows when they are first aired, then you can go to the network’s website and view the full episodes a day after they are aired and sometimes a few hours afterwards.

There are a lot of eye-catching shows being aired this fall, so I am pretty sure you will be able to find something that suits your interests.
