This TV season is all but over now, but next season will be here before you know it.  Here's a look at how each night stacks up based on the fall schedules announced this week.

Grids for all the nights are at the bottom of this post. In the past we've broken them up into separate posts for each day of the week. As we get closer to the fall season, we'' probably do just that. But it's all-in-one post for now.

Even More New Shows Than Last Year

Last year there were 20 new shows debuting in the early fall -- that count excludes "Fox Sports Saturday" and also excludes "Malibu Country" which didn't debut until later in the fall. This year there are more than 25% more new shows for a total of 26 -- that count excludes "Almost Human" and "Enlisted" which won't debut until later in the fall.

What Catches Ratings Watchers Eyes?

There will be no shortage of things to capture a ratings watcher's attention . How will CBS's expanded Thursday comedy block and new Monday comedies fare? How well will The Voice age? What happens to Person of Interest on a new night and later time with a smaller lead in? Revolution at 8pm? How bad is it going to be for Beauty and the Beast on a new day with Hart of Dixie as its lead-in?

But at least at the start of the season I can't imagine anything will capture more attention, even with ratings watchers, than the launch of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.  Maybe I just lack imagination.  Those watching the NBA Finals on ABC in June can get back to me after they've seen the Agents of SHIELD promo for the 10,000th time.

    So I know that networks used to air the pilots that did not make it to series during the summer (Seinfeld, for example). Do networks still do that? I really hope so. I would be watching a lot of the comedy pilots, especially on NBC, as well as Fox’s drama The List. I would most like to see the pilots for CBS’s Gaffigan, NBC’s The Gates, NBC’s Joe & Joe & Jane, Fox’s The Gabriels, and ABC’s Spy. I really hope that the networks still do this, or at least release them online.

    This year’s new shows look far, far better than last years almost across the board. The only possible exception is The CW, and that’s only because Arrow seemed like a such a slam-dunk success (and, outside of Arrow, they also look, well, not better but more likely to succeed).

    Hey Daniel Glee is still remaining on Thursday at 9:00pm following X factor at 8:00pm this fall than they will split it up the remaining of the show will start again in march so rake will take glee time slot this coming January.

    When will Resurection be on and Us and Them the new comedy with Jason Ritter?

  • networkman

    I’m listing the new shows that should be able to have some success and be picked up for a second season along with veteran shows that should be ending at the end of the 2013-14 season.

    Likely to return for a second season:
    1. Blacklist
    2. The Michael J. Fox Show

    Likely to end:
    1. Law & Order:SVU (15 seasons)
    2. Parks & Recreation (6 seasons)
    3. Community (5 seasons)

    1. Almost Human
    2. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

    1. Bones (9 seasons)

    1. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
    2. The Goldbergs
    3. Super Fun Night
    4. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

    1. Grey’s Anatomy (10 seasons)

    1. Mom
    2. Intelligence
    3. The Crazy Ones

    1. How I Met Your Mother (9 seasons)
    2. Two & A Half Men (11 seasons)
    3. The Good Wife (5 seasons)
    4. The Mentalist (6 seasons)

    1. The Originals
    2. The Tomorrow People

    1. The Carrie Diaries (2 seasons)
    2. Nikita (4 seasons)

    If ABC is able to create 2 new hit comedies they really should expand to a two hour comedy block on Friday for the 2014-15 season.

    Something like this would be great
    8pm Modern Family
    8:30 The Goldbergs
    9pm Super Fun Night
    9:30 New Comedy

    8pm Last Man Standing
    8:30 The Neighbors
    9pm The Middle
    9:30 Suburgatory

    Monday – Only returning show I care about is HIMYM, but I’ll be checking out Almsot Human, Sleep Hollow, Blacklist, We Are Men, Mom, and hostages. Busy night but I expect I won’t like all the new shows

    Tuesday – New girl, Mindy Project, and POI will be my returning shows. Will check out SHIELD, Brooklyn nine nine, and Lucky 7

    Wednesday- Arrow, Revolution, and Modern Family are my returning shows. Will check out Tomorrow People and maybe Back in the Game. Somewhat boring night.

    Thursday – Parks and rec and TBBT are my returning shows. Will check out OUATIW, The millers, the crazy ones, and MJF show. Don’t expect to like the new comedies a lot. Will be my first non busy Thursday in a long time if so.

    Friday – Grimm and Raising hope are my returning shows. Will check out Dracula.

    Saturday – BORING, it will be my night to do other stuff as usual.

    Sunday – OUAT, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and Amazing Race are my returning shows. and that’s that.

    Now we wait to see the cable line up. It’s going to be a busy fall.

    I still feel as if CBS could of been more dominant on Thursday night if 2 Broke Girls would of moved to this night at 9pm. And Monday still could of held up well with 3 respected older comedies. We Are Men is too big of a risk and could bring down the entire lineup.

    In my opinion this should of been the lineup:

    8pm How I Met Your Mother
    8:30pm Mike & Molly
    9pm Two & A Half Men
    9:30pm The Millers

    8pm The Big Bang Theory
    8:30pm Mom
    9pm 2 Broke Girls
    9:30pm The Crazy Ones

    This way they would air the single-cam after all of the multi cam. I would love to see Robin Williams up against Micheal J. Fox. The only reason why I feel Two & A Half Men is at 9:30pm is because they are hoping that it will help maintain Elementary’s ratings. But I don’t feel that is a guarantee with it airing after two new comedies. Crazy Ones should remain competitive airing after 2 Broke Girls rather than leading off the hour after The Millers. Anna Faris is the breakout star that should be airing after Big Bang.
