Happy September! The new fall TV season will be here soon, and it's not to early to think about managing your DVRs.

Anything that's been announced that I missed, please let me know and I'll add it to the list.  If you see any errors, let me know about those too.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

  • chloe

    Which comedies series have got the most awards so far and also in history.

  • Ryan

    (2) Ripper Street – Sunday, December 1 10:00pm

  • JMorgana

    Capitalist: Sept 24 at 9 after NCIS.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    A couple of more updates added.

    Please note, that as of this writing there is still no official start date for ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ other than “October,” regardless of what you read on the Internet. Yes, Wikipedia says it’s October 9, but the story they link to for that citation is a press release on our site from March which doesn’t have any premiere date info other than “October” and before Halloween:

    The next chapter will be called American Horror Story: Coven and it is set in New Orleans and Academy Award(R) winner Kathy Bates is joining the cast opposite Jessica Lange. American Horror Story will once again roll out in October, just in time for Halloween, and it will run through January of 2014.

  • Illinois

    My predictions for the future cancelations:

    CBS – HIMYM (Final season), The Good Wife, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, We Are Men, Hostages, Friends with Better Lives, Bad Teacher and Reckless.

    ABC – Betrayal, Resurrection, The Quest, Lucky 7, Trophy Wife, The Goldbergs, Mixology and Back in the Game (+ Grey’s Anatomy ending if the cast members don’t want to continue).

    NBC – Sean Saves the world, Ironside, Dracula, Crossbones, Growing Up Fisher, Crysis and Believe.

    FOX – Sleepy Holllow, Dads, The Mindy Project, Surviving Jack, Enlisted (looks funny but I think it’ll meet the cancelation bear) and Murder Police.

    CW – Reign, Beauty and the Beast, Nikita, The Carrie Diaries and Star-Crossed.

  • @Illinoistoo

    I hope you’re wrong about We Are Men, Believe, Sleepy Hollow and Murder Police. I imagine Sean Saves the World will stay too. …

    I’m looking forward to BBC’s Ripper Street returning and checking out Atlantis as well.

  • Tana

    It makes no sense to maintain a high rating for three of the top rated shows, being on at the same time on Thursday. Scandal, Parenthood, Greys Anatomy, all on Thursday???? Really?????? Not a good idea at all. One will suffer, and it won’t be Scandal.

  • Mike

    You forgot to put COPS on there to premiere on Sept. 14 on Spike. Anyways, I can’t wait for the premiere of:

    Two and a Half Men
    Big Bang Theory
    The Crazy Ones
    Two Broke Girls
    Survivor
    Amazing Race
    Last Man Standing
    The Million Second Quiz
    Undercover Boss

  • Jackie

    I can’t believe you’ve cancelled “Body of Proof” with Dana Delaney!! Loved her in China Beach. So many great shows r being cancelled anymore:( Body of Proof, Lie to Me, Last Resort,Saving Hope,Fringe,Red Widow, The Firm (loved it)& House just to name a few!!!

  • JacobYates

    @Kissan
    You left out Raising Hope on your returning series predictions. I’ll predict it for you.

    Raising Hope – 1.7 and 4 million viewers

  • Justin121

    Pulled: Dads, We Are Men, Welcome to the Family, Sleepy Hollow.

    Canceled after 13: Brooklyn 99, Mindy, Neighbors, Back in the Game, Lucky 7, Betrayal, Ironside, The Millers, Sean Saves the World, Beauty and the Beast, The Carrie Diaries, Dracula, Once in Wonderland.

    Canceled by May: Blacklist, Super Fun Night, Crazy Ones, Reign, Almost Human.

    Who agrees/disagrees and why?

  • loveTV

    blacklist 3.0 ??
    hostages 4.1 ??
    seriously? so it means that Castle will get 1.2 or 1.3 or less !?

  • sara

    ABC is set up to fail this year. My new station CBS I think Hostages looks great.

  • XMCchina

    @sara
    you got to be kidding me ….i can not guarantee ABC will be successful this year even they have shield,but some of their new shows are gonging to be big hits….failure is really a strong word for ABC this year, we will see

  • David Francis

    Why do people list the shows they will watch? Who cares but them.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I feel the Mike & Molly, Suburgatory, and Community will be back before November and Raising Hope will never air on Fridays. ABC’s Tuesday block will fail with the possibility of one Wednesday comedy. We are Men will be gone fast and replaced by Mike & Molly (it repeats well at the 7:30 slot). One of the Thursday NBC comedies will fail, probably welcome to the family, and Community will take that slot after Parks and Rec (good combo). I’m most worried for ABC. I could see Suburgatory back, with the Neighbors and Last Man Standing moving away from Friday by midseason.

  • Big Daddy

    Crazy Ones will be cancelled in October… Mark it down

  • Tony JJ

    I want fall tv to start now!! So many new shows that I’m excited for and have potential to break out!

  • TaylorA

    What about The Following, Nikita, Warehouse 13, Defiance, Mind Games, Resurrection, and Hannibal?

  • Ryan

    Is that SNL premiere date confirmed? I cant’t find it anywhere. And if history holds to form it should be 9/21, not 9/28.
