I know most of you guys are excited for the fall season because of the fashion and change of weather but for me I’m excited for fall because of the fall TV shows. I’m a self declared TV junkie, I watch almost EVERY show there is. I suck at time management and I have been trying to improve this skill, but for some reason when it comes to my TV shows I seem to manage that time really well (I know, I know I need to get it together lol). Watching TV is one of the ways I entertain myself, some shows are just really addicting. I know it can be very overwhelming when trying to find a show to watch but have no fear, the TV junkie is here to help. I’m going to list some of my favorite shows to watch and the new ones I’ll pick up this fall. For me it’s very important to find a show that’s going to catch my attention or as my friend Gigi and I like to say “pull me in.” I’m only going to list a few, if I were to list all the shows I watch, this will be a very longgggg post. In another life, my true calling would be to lay around all day in my PJ’s and watch all the shows in the world lolol.
1. This Is US
From the very first episode of season 1 this show has caught my attention and I’ve cried EVERY episode(I’m a huge crier). This first season was excellent, I can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store for us. I guarantee you will love this show. Get on it! Premieres September 26th 9pm on NBC.
2. TGIT: Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to get away with Murder
Thursday Nights belongs to Shonda Rhimes. The drama on each show is on another level. I’m a bit sad that this will be the last season of Scandal but it had a good run. Grey’s Anatomy and How to get away with Murder premieres on September 28th at 8 and 10pm respectively and Scandal October 5th 9pm on ABC.
I’m still not sure how I feel about Black-ish moving to Tuesday’s. However, I’m excited to see how the family transition with Zoey going off to college and having baby Devontae home. Premieres October 3rd at 9pm on ABC.
4. Chicago PD
There’s something about a cop show that I love and it doesn’t hurt that I have a crush on Sergeant Bought lol. Premieres October 27th at 10pm on NBC.
5. Law & Order Special Victims Unit (SVU)
I’ve been watching this show since I was 10 years old, I practically grew up watching SVU. I’ll be forever loyal to Olivia and the gang. Premieres September 27th, 9pm on NBC.
Cookie and the crew are back September 27th 8pm on Fox. Wednesday’s are when I have a major clash because my faves all show that night and same time. I’ll let you in on a little secret SVU always trumps Empire(sssshhhh).
Premieres September 27th 9pm on Fox.
8. Queen Sugar
This is another great show created by Ava DuVernay. This show tugs at me emotions every episode. Let the record show I’ve been a loyal supporter of the OWN network since it’s inception. Queen Sugar premieres October 3rd at 10pm on OWN.
9. Hawaii Five-O
I have watched the older version but this remake is Everything. Premieres September 29th 9pm on CBS.
10. Blue Bloods
I’ve had a huge crush on Tom Selleck since I discovered the show “Magnum, PI” many years ago. I also have a huge crush on Donnie Wahlberg and it’s another cop show based on the NYPD. Premieres September 29th, 10pm on CBS.
Premieres October 9th 8pm on the CW
Premieres October 10th 8pm on the CW
Premieres October 12th 9pm on the CW (not sure how I feel about the change from Wednesday to Thursday)
Premieres Friday October 13th pm on the CW
I love me some Keifer Sutherland and seeing him in a role like this, shows me how diverse of an actor he is. Also, this show is basically showing that anyone can become the President. Designated Survivor for some reason seems like a precursor to what may happen if Trump remains president or gets a second term(sorry but not so sorry). Premieres September 27th, 10pm on ABC.
16. Lethal Weapon
This is a new fall show that has caught my attention just from the commercial. I also love watching medical dramas. From the TV commercials and after doing a little reading, this show is about a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome being recruited into a pediatric surgical unit at a prestigious hospital. I am really looking forward to this show. It premieres tonight September 25th 10pm on CBS.
18. Law & Order True Crime:The Menendez Murders
Premieres September 26th at 10pm on NBC.
