Do you watch too much television? Of course you do! Would you like to cut it down a little bit? Of course not! With the leaves changing colors and the weather cooling down a bit, the Fall season is nearing. With Fall brings a new lineup of Television for every day of the week! We’ve got you covered. Here are the 7 shows you should be watching this Fall.
“How I Met Your Mother”
Mondays 8/7c – Season 9 premieres September 23rd
The time has finally come. The moment we’ve all been waiting for – Barney and Robin’s wedding! Oh that’s not the main story line heading into the final season of How I Met Your Mother? Right, Ted finally meets the mother of his children. We’ve seen clues since the beginning; the yellow umbrella, love of the bass guitar, and a student in the Economics class that Ted thought he taught. Well now we get to learn all there is to know about her.
Tuesdays 10/9c – Season 3 premieres September 17th
I think I can speak for all of us that it was the greatest thing ever that Nick and Jess finally hooked up. It was a long time coming, but I did think it would be a few more seasons before it did happen. Now it should be a nice long bumpy season of hookups and breakups. Maybe they didn’t think this show would last that long? I do recall one of the 17 Wayan brothers being the token black guy on the Pilot Episode, and quickly being replaced by Winston. Either way, like Nick O. who cranks through New Girl episodes like a lesbian at a Teagan and Sarah concert, I am glad New Girl is back!
“Law and Order: SVU”
Wednesdays 10/9c – Season 15 premieres September 25th
Will Elliott return? Will Ice-T take acting classes? Will Richard Belzer finally bring his comedic chops to the show? These are the things that we need to know going into Season 15 of Law and Order: SVU. Maybe we’re a bit bias, seeing at least every show ever made twice – unlike some people who think the show ended 5 years ago, shame on you. But SVU is still one of the best Crime Drama’s on TV. Mariska Hargitay still looks dynamite, and they’re going to do an Anthony Weiner story so poorly it will make you cry. What else do you need?
“Parks and Recreation”
Thursdays 8/7c – Season 6 premieres September 26th
Ron Swanson. A swan song. I recently listened to a Podcast with the man himself Nick Offerman, he is an absolutely genius. Aziz is back and better than ever and Amy Poehler can do no wrong. Or can she? We were left wondering if the city of Pawnee is better off without Leslie Knope – but what the hell do they know it’s not even a real town (believe me I’ve checked). Being one of the originally believers in Parks and Rec, spreading the good gospel to those who’ve finally turned the corner 5 years later – you better believe we will be planted in front of the TV on Thursday nights.
“Last Man Standing”
Fridays 8/7c – Season 3 premieres September 20th
This isn’t Home Improvement. But it’s close. Well not really but it’s still pretty good times if you were a lover of Tim the Tool Man Taylor. Instead of 3 boys, he’s got 3 girls. Remember the good ol’ TGIF? Sabrina the Teenage Witch? Steve Eurkel? Boy Meets World? Good times..
“Saturday Night Live”
Saturdays 12:30/11:30c – Season 39 premieres September 28th
You read that right. Season freaking 39 of Saturday Night Live. How is Lorne Michaels not the richest man in the world? Oh yeah, SNL has been battling back ever since Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon all left. With another big hit to the cast losing Samberg, Hader, Sudeikis, Armisen and soon to be Myers, it could be another rough few years. But SNL continues to entertain and hits every political topic on the head. A new cast could be just what SNL needs, no heavy hitters, just a bunch of role players. Tina Fey hosts the season premeire and I’m sure we will see plenty of former cast members and celebrity A-listers. Oh, and Miley hosts the second week. Possible train wreck? Yes please.
“The Walking Dead”
Sundays 9/8c – Season 4 premieres October 13th
