Fall TV Cheat Sheet

I love TV. And based on the amount of tweeting I saw last night about Breaking Bad, Miss America, and The Newsroom (still dying over the finale), you do too.

This week kicks off the best few weeks of fall. All our favorite shows are returning, we’ve got lots of new pilots ready to be enjoyed (or turned off 5 minutes in), and a few that will leave you wondering, who the eff decided that was a good idea? I’m looking at you Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

So here is a cheat sheet for you. Set your DVR’s people!

Returning Shows I’m Most Excited for:

1. New Girl

Nick and Jess! Jess and Nick! I’m nervous and too thrilled about this because I fear they are going to go the way of Ross and Rachel….break them up for like 4 seasons and then they’ll wind up together at the very end. I’ll be devastated but I’ll keep watching. Because this. More, please!

2. How I Met Your Mother

We’ve caught a glimpse of the mother. Was anyone else a little like…ehh…? But as whiny and mopey and generally pathetic as Ted can be, we still want to see him happy. And it’s happening this season, people. Plus more of Marshmallow and Lily pad. The TV couple we strive to be.

3. The Vampire Diaries

In the last month I watched all four seasons of this show. That’s over 60 hours of vampires, werewolves, originals, and oh yeah, vampire sex. Season 5 kicks off soon and we get to see how Delena played out.

New Shows With the Most Hype:

1. Betrayal

The ad for this show basically does a terrible job of conveying what it’s actually about. There is adultery. That’s all I got out of it. But what I do know is that this looks like it’s the closest thing to 50 Shades of Grey we are going to get for a while. Sexual.

2. Super Fun Night

She brought us Fat Amy, the awkward roommate from Bridesmaids, and introduced me to my new favorite kind of cardio, horizontal running. And now she’s going to entertain us for 30 minutes a week. Rebel Wilson, I can’t wait.

3. Sleepy Hollow

The first time I saw this preview I was like….well that’s gonna get canceled real fast. And then it grew on me and now I’m actually interested. I like the mildly creepy but not too realistic (too realistic: Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Following). This ghost story sounds like it just might walk that line.

Any other TV addicts out there? What show are YOU most excited about?

You know, sometimes I think I should watch less TV….


Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to Tami from Friday Morning Buzz. Let’s just get this out there: Does she win the award for best picture ever or what?

Tami is a real life news anchor, which basically means she’s sort of famous. Check out what it’s really like to be a news anchor – so different than it was in my head! You also NEED to read the story about how Tim Tebow saw her boobs. I’m kind of in shock over it.  She also has what may stand as the worst first date story I’ve ever read. But hey, I can’t help but support a girl who used the “date to eat” method. Need to know where to start? Head over and check out some of Tami’s favorite posts.

  • I’m pretty excited for Once Upon A Time. I got into it because I kinda like fantasy based in reality and I love fairy tales so this weird, dark, twist on the fairy tale characters we all know and love was right up my alley.

  • I can’t wait for Revenge. Also I am excited for S.H.I.E.L.D.S because I am a huge Avenger’s fan.

  • this is greatness. now i’m excited on a Monday

  • I can’t wait for the The Goodwife and 2 Broke girls, both great shows.

  • Totally agree about the mom on HIMYM!

    And Tami is amazing!

  • My mom told me maybe I should try cutting out some shows this year. Um no thanks mom! But I’m concerned about Thursday nights, and I don’t even watch some of the shows you have on there. We have Big Bang Theory, Michael J. Fox, Glee, Grey’s, Two and a half men, Vampire Diaries. It’s just too much….

  • holy perfect post!!!! Thank you!

  • I am sooooo excited for all these shows to start back! Like you, I have watched all 4 seasons of Vampire Diaries in the last month and can’t wait for more. I don’t know how I am going to wait for a week in between shows?! The Originals? Yes, Please! HIMYM is going to make me happy and sad since it is supposed to be the last season. Last season wasn’t up to normal standards though, so I hope they make this last season epic!!

  • I dedicate far too much time to tv! I always think about starting a new show but I just can’t

  • It’s times like these I wish we had DVR. We decided to get 2 cable boxes instead so while my bf watches football, I can watch something in the other room. But there are TOO MANY shows to watch!

  • whattttt parenthood is coming back?? I was so worried that it ended forever! I felt like those people were my family… okay YES shameless TV addict right here too.
    I can’t wait for Super Fun Night either! I may actually print this out hahah

    <3 danielle

  • Totally, excited to what Delena will play out. Looking forward to season 5, after all I’ve wasted/ruined so much of my time watching Vamp Diaries.

  • What a time saver, thanks Nadine!
    Also, lovvvvve Friday Morning Buzz. She’s a keeper.

    XOXO Fal

  • Dee

    I’m excited for HIMYM too! The mother was indeed kinda disappointing that’s why I wanna see what makes her perfect for Ted.

  • not going to lie, i am at work and just copied this to a sticky note and put it into my purse. time to set my dvr!!

  • I can’t wait for American Horror Story and The Walking Dead! And Sleepy Hollow will be going into my DVR! Love fall tv!

  • Such a smart idea! thanks for sharing!

  • Ah, you are awesome! I needed this cheat sheet!

  • This makes me wish I had more time to watch tv, but this semester of school is straight out killing me. HIMYM is definitely one of my favorites though!

  • I love Tami!

    I’m kinda interested in Sleepy Hollow. But I’m super excited about American Horror Story coming back!

  • I love that you made us a cheat sheet! I’m not even ashamed to say that TV basically runs my life, and I had a ridiculously long, in-depth conversation with my husband the other night about our TV schedule for the fall season. I want to watch everything, and then talk about it with everyone.

    Side note: Tami totally does have the best picture ever!

  • I SO can’t wait for the new season of New Girl and How I met your Mother (even though the whole last season was pretty “ehhh” to me).

  • I’m excited for Super Fun Night.

    Sleepy Hollow looks good, but I’m not convinced Fox is going to give it time to build a following.

  • Ummm….Now I wanna watch The New Girl. And her sister’s show Bones.

    Also…I’m a sucker for things like Sleepy Hollow. I’m excited for that as well.

    Girlfran, there’s an end table with a wine glass waiting for you in my living room. C’mon over.

  • GAH! I can’t wait! I have all of the premiers in my calendar already. We kick off with New Girl tomorrow!!!! And I’m super excited for the mother on HIMYM. She’s a Broadway actress who played “Girl” in “Once.” OMG she’s amazing. I really hope she gets to sing on the show because she’s wonderful.

  • Fall TV is almost here!! Man I can’t wait. You’ve got a good list here. Revenge, HIMYM, New Girl, Parenthood, The Good Wife, and The Vampire Diaries. I’d like to check out a few of the new shows too: The Originals, Betrayal (had’t even heard of that one!), Scandal. I’ve spent the summer watching Weeds which I love but I can’t tell you how excited I am to have my regular shows back on!

    Exploring My Style

  • I can’t wait for NASHVILLE to return!!! And Revenge. And Mindy Project. And like…everything?

    Also, can we just hav ea moment of silence for the way Nick catapulted from semi-dirty roommate in flannel to hottest sex object ever?

  • Perfecto… just what I needed. All of the Fall shows in one place. Anyone else think it’s weird that the mother from HIMYM is an exact hybrid of Lily and Robin? Seriously, Google her face and tell me I’m wrong.

  • I was instantly hooked to Sleepy Hollow the minute I saw the preview…I am so excited for tonight! Now New Girl…I never got into it..maybe it deserves another go…

  • This is so great! I forgot all about Super Fun Night – I can’t wait to check that one out!

  • I love your cheat sheet! I might just have to make my own 🙂

  • YES TO ALL OF THIS! I am such a TV watcher and this made me SO EXCITED FOR MY FALL TV SHOWS!!!!

  • YES TO ALL OF THIS! I am such a TV watcher and this made me SO EXCITED FOR MY FALL TV SHOWS!!!!

  • I’m so psyched for New Girl, The Mindy Project, HIMYM and everything else (I too am a TV addict!)

    I’m also really excited to see Marvel’s the S.H.E.I.L.D, because if there’s anything I’m more addicted to than TV, it’s superheroes.

  • I gave up TV dramas a long time ago- they used to be my addiction, but I just had enough real life drama, you know? I’m all about comedy now. Modern Family- I cry laughing. And my new, recent addiction Big Bang Theory (I think have a super techy husband makes this show even funnier)

  • I think I’m the only person on the planet that doesn’t have a DVR. But damnit I’m getting it with my next cable service! Thanks for my spotlight post lady 🙂

  • I love you for this! I am really excited about Michael J. Fox’s new show and hope it does well. 🙂
    The Grass Skirt

  • I am so excited for Super Fun Night, and Grey’s Anatomy..
    oh, and Glee, REALLY excited for Glee!

  • You are amazing for creating that cheat sheet!! Yes.

    Already saved to the desktop!

    I’ll be with you on the couch in spirit! Haha!


  • Hart of Dixie, Nashville, Grey’s and Scandal!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  • I cannot WAIT for HIMYM!! And I agree, the mother is so not that cute. Her teeth were a little weird. But I still adore that show and am sad that it’s ending because I’ve already seen every single episode at least twice.

  • New Girl! Going to pee my pants and not be able to wait for this ALL DAY!

  • so many good ones on this list! I’m currently putting my list together as well. Scandal, Bones, and Revenge are all at the top for me

  • this pretty much made my day. we just nixed cable (that ish is expensive, and we don’t really watch THAT much tv..) so now we only get the basic channels. but idk what the hell to do without the convenience of a ‘guide’ button, and i neeever know what time shows are on.
    bing bang boom! thanks for doing the hard work for me!

  • Revenge is at the top of my fall list. But Sleepy Hollow sounds pretty good too! I might have to check that out.

  • Totally addicted to TV! Happy to see I’m not the only one 🙂 I seriously can’t wait for New Girl and The Mindy Project tonight. Do you know when Hart of Dixie starts up again?

  • Bones ( aired last night yea), Criminal Minds and The Walking Dead. Saw Sleepy Hollow last night and I think I am going to really like that show. Like so many others I watch so many shows now it is hard to keep track of what I am waiting for, think I need to just keep blogging instead, let’s lose my life on line instead of in front of the tube.

  • So many shows I have not seen

  • Grey’s Anatomy and Parenthood all day every dayyy.

  • Oh I’m so excited and I’m happy to know I’m not the only one with way too many fall shows. I watch & adore Parenthood, HIMYM, Big Bang, Glee, the voice, X Factor (ps I’m a reality junkie too) and I’m excited for Dads (is that what you have Mom up there for?) and the Michael J Fox show. We also used to watch New Girl and 2 Broke Girls but completely missed last season. Just can’t keep up with them all!!

  • I am totally waiting for New Girl . Oh seriously , can’t wait!

  • Seriously, just start calling yourself a super hero. The simplest things.. You made a chart. For tv and I think it’s the most glorious thing ever. I’m SO behind with Vampire Diaries. Like, 3 seasons behind.

  • Oh em eff gee. I cannot wait for the vampire diaries. I can’t wait to see Delena together finally!
