Fall 2012 TV Premiere Dates

Categories: Cable TV

Written By

August 13th, 2012

The list is only intended to be for fall premieres. Mid-season premieres are not included (and we don't have the dates yet anyway).

Note, there are some shows that are definitely returning soon-ish that don't have specific dates/times locked down yet, and those shows have not been added to the list yet.

Please note any mistakes or additions in the comments.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Thomas: I’ll be plenty surprised if all of the ABC November 2 dates hold up, but this was about a list of premiere dates, not opining on their likelihood.

    @Jon: whoops, added.

    @srfan, yes, 9/24 is the official start of the fall season from Nielsen’s perspective.

  • Jon23812

    @Srfan, I think the first official week is the week of September 17th.

  • Jon23812

    ^Ignore my previous comment.

  • Rich

    Why is Shark Tank listed twice?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Rich: second one is new time period premiere

  • Bob

    CBS looks like they will win it again. Incredible shows and line up. I just wish Revenge was on CBS. But ABC is a pretty good network too.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    Bob: again? It will be CBS’s first win in many years with adults 18-49

  • Colin

    The Neighbors is gunna be canceled after 4 episodes.

  • Julie

    Touch is scheduled to return to Fox on 10/26 at 8/7c.

  • Ryan Schwartz

    Thanks for the list.

    You should probably clarify…
    New Girl FOX 8:00 PM Tuesday, September 25, 2012
    +
    New Girl FOX 9:00 PM (TIMESLOT PREMIERE) Tuesday, September 25, 2012

    AND…

    Shark Tank ABC 9:00 PM (TIMESLOT PREMIERE) Friday, November 02, 2012

  • Andrew

    American Horror Story??

  • Minky

    Pretty sure New Girl won’t be premiering at 9:00 AM, you meant PM?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Andrew: October, but no date yet.

    @Minky: yep.

  • Kieran Pertnav

    Typo- you have the New Girl premier at 9 AM

  • Person of Interest ROCK!!!

    can’t wait for Person Of Interest, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons, Mike & Molly, Family Guy, Raising Hope, and Sons Of Anarchy!!!

  • Fischer

    My watch List: Nashville, Vegas, SVU, Modern Family, The Office, Touch.

  • Fischer

    Reality Show Watch List: XFactor, Amazing Race, Shark Tank

  • PinoyTvCritic

    CBS is the network for inside the box shows, generic & formulaic procedurals and traditional sitcoms.

  • Kissan

    My Watch List: Once Upon A Time, Revenge, Up All Night, 2 Broke Girl$, X Factor, The Voice, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Family Guy, Modern Family, Apt. 23, Hot In Cleveland, and can’t wait for Revolution, Last Resort, Made In Jersey, 666 Park Avenue, Arrow, Nashville, Emily Owens M.D. and Bueaty & The Beast.

  • iggy.

    Copper debuts at 10pm Eastern this Sunday, not 9pm.
