Fall 2013 TV Guide: Thursday Night

 TV Schedule Fall 2013 Thursday

New TV Shows on Thursday Nights

The Thursday night comedy blocks for NBC and CBS will look pretty different this fall as five new comedies join the prime time line-up.

  • Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
  • The Millers
  • The Crazy Ones
  • Welcome to the Family
  • Sean Saves the World
  • The Michael J. Fox Show
  • Reign

The Millers featuring Will Arnett and The Crazy Ones, which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams will be sandwiched by some of CBS’s biggest sitcom performers – Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.

With The Office and 30 Rock gone, NBC had a lot of rebuilding to do, which is why three new sitcoms will be joining Parks and Recreation on Thursday nights – Welcome to the Family, Sean Saves the World starring Sean Hayes, and The Michael J. Fox Show.

Once Upon a Time’s spin-off Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, will kickoff ABC’s Thursday night line-up. Meanwhile, over on The CW, Reign gets the plush post-The Vampire Diaries time slot.

New Show Most Least Likely to Be Cancelled

My pick is The Millers, mostly because Will Arnett’s last two broadcast sitcoms didn’t exactly succeed.

The Game Plan for Glee

With the unfortunate and unexpected passing of Cory Monteith, the creative team of Glee has had to do some scrambling. But with the blessing of Lea Michele the show will go (probably for another two seasons).

The 5th season of Glee will premier on September 26th, a week later than originally scheduled. The first two episodes back will be a 2-parter revolving around the music of The Beatles. The third episode of the season will then address the passing of Monteith and the character of Finn. And then after that episode, the show will go on hiatus for a bit to figure out what’s next for McKinley High School’s glee club members and alumni.

Who’s Coming & Going

Come mid-season, Parks and Recreation will say goodbye to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, aka – Ann Perkins and Chris Traeger. While I can see how both characters have run their course, I’ll still miss the Ann and Leslie friendship.

Meanwhile the 10th season of Grey’s Anatomy, which kicks off with a 2-hour premiere on September 26th, will be the last season for Sandra Oh and the character of Dr. Cristina Yang.

And Amber Tamblyn will be joining the cast of Two and a Half Men as Charlie’s lesbian illegitimate daughter. Her role will most likely fill the gap left by Angus T Jones, who will only appear in a recurring role this season.
