Fall 2015 TV Premieres: What to Watch and When


I have a pretty outstanding relationship with television. More so than movies (it’s so weird that I work here, right?), TV practically raised me from the mean streets of Sesame to the well adjusted adult that I am now. This fall there’s a lot more new television than ever thanks to studios realizing how well some of them take off, but it can be hard to keep up with all of the competing shows. To help everyone get through pilot season, I’ve put together a list of when these shows are premiering this fall. 

For this list I’ve left off a few shows that are in their billionth season like NCIS and Law & Order: SVU, and I’ve also highlighted a few shows we here at Flixist have some special interest in. Check back over the next few weeks for our impressions, previews, recaps and the like. 

Let us know what you’re looking forward to!
