I definitely have not made it a secret around here how much I love to watch television. Drama, comedy, paranormal, reality….I love it. I’m pretty sure the DVR is the best invention ever….at least since indoor plumbing anyway. There are so many great shows on these days and without the DVR I would miss most of them! So this fall has had some fantastic shows premiere and I wanted to share a few of my favorites with y’all today and see if you have any you think I should be watching.
1. Mom– CBS; Mondays 9:30ET
This is definitely our number one favorite new show of the season. It’s absolutely hysterical. The humor, the characters, the situations…we love it. Definitely not a show to enjoy with the kids around but we’ve gotten some of the best laughs from this show!
2. The Millers– CBS; Thursdays 8:30ET
I think is probably our second favorite new show of the season. Seriously, CBS hit a home run this season with their new comedies. They’re hysterically funny. Matt and I both love this show and I hope it’s on for a long time. We were hooked from the very first episode.
3. Ravenswood– ABC FAM; Tuesdays 8:00ET
I love Pretty Little Liars so when I saw they were making a spin-off, I was giddy. Matt is not a big fan of PLL so he doesn’t bother to watch Ravenswood with me. I think he’d like it if he gave it a chance though. It’s got a lot of mystery and paranormal stuff going on and one of the main characters is Caleb from PLL so who can’t love that?
4. Sean Saves the World– NBC; Thursdays 9:00ET
The relationship between Sean and his mom makes this show so dang funny. I love them. The one liners and cast chemistry is top notch. If you loved Sean Hayes as Jack in Will & Grace then you will adore him in this show. Seriously, it’s a don’t miss show in my opinion.
5. Sleepy Hollow– FOX; Mondays 9:00ET
This show was a surprise for me. I knew Matt and Ty would like it but I didn’t know if I would. I was sucked in by the 10th minutes of the first episode! For some reason I was picturing it set in the old days, which I’m not a fan of, but it’s a modern day rendition of Sleepy Hollow. I just saw it’s been extended for a second season already which makes me happy!
6. Super Fun Night– ABC; Wednesdays 9:30ET
Oh man, Rebel Wilson in a comedy series? Yes, please. I’ve loved her in pretty much everything she’s done- the girl is just amazing. I almost missed this show because the name threw me off- I thought it was a game show or something. Ha! I’m so glad I didn’t miss out on her comedic genius.
7. The Blacklist– NBC; Mondays 10:00ET
We almost didn’t watch this show and I can’t imagine not watching it now! The drama, the suspense, the twists and turns….it’s fantastic! We were hooked from the very first episode and had to find out what happened next! That’s the hallmark of a great show to me- when I can’t stand the wait from one week to the next to find out what happens!
8. The Goldbergs– ABC; Tuesdays 9:00ET
Matt was really unsure about a show set in the 80’s but I knew I would love it. And I was right. Now even Matt loves it. This family cracks me up- the dad is absolutely hilarious. We look forward to this one every week.
9. Trophy Wife– ABC; Tuesdays 9:30ET
I’ve heard rumors that this show might not make it the whole season and I hope those rumors are wrong because this show is so funny! The cast has such a great chemistry together and it cracks me up. I like this show as much as I like Modern Family….and that’s a lot!
10. Back in the Game– ABC; Wednesdays 8:30ET
We weren’t sure about this show at first but it’s gotten funnier as we watched and got to know the characters a bit more. We’ll keep watching it. The dad, played by James Caan, is probably the funniest character in the show. He’s rude, blunt, and sarcastic….all traits I admire.
We have quite a few new series saved on the DVR that we haven’t even had a chance to try out yet too- Hostages, The Tomorrow People, The Originals, Witches of East End, and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. Do you see why my DVR is so full? These are in addition to the can’t miss shows we already record each week. I might need a second DVR to hold them all!
What are your favorite new shows of the season?
