Fall 2013 TV Guide: Sunday Night

Fall 2013 TV Guide: Sunday Night

TV Schedule Fall 2013 Sunday

New TV Shows on Sunday Nights

Sunday nights are jam-packed with returning network staples this year. Only ABC is using the night to launch a new series – Betrayal, which will air at 10pm, after Revenge. It seems that ABC is sticking with the counter-programming strategy against football.

Animation Domination

On Sunday nights FOX must subscribe to the ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it’ motto since The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, and American Dad all return.

Although it won’t happen until Fall 2014, there’s a Family Guy Simpsons crossover episode to look forward to. Apparently Seth MacFarlane’s Griffin family will be taking a road trip to Springfield.

A Night of Drama

Joining Betrayal on Sunday nights are Once Upon a Time, Revenge, The Good Wife, and The Mentalist.

As a fan of Revenge I was particularly pleased to hear that the new showrunner plans to simplify season 3 by cutting back on the numerous nonsensical subplots and to focus more on the revenging.

However, I’ve got less good news for fans of The Mentalist, apparently this season will be the last for Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman a.k.a. special agents Grace Van Pelt and Wayne Rigsby.

One last fun fact about Sunday night TV – with the exception of Sunday Night Football on NBC, all other TV shows will return September 29th. Better make room on your DVR, I told you it was going to be a busy night.

Fall 2013 TV Guide: Friday Night

Fall 2013 TV Guide: Friday Night

TV Schedule Fall 2013 Friday

New TV Shows on Friday Nights

Friday night is notoriously a mellow evening reserved for the quiet yet consistent performers, series in their final seasons, and all sorts of other odds-and-ends that don’t pair well with anything else in the network’s’ line-up.

Just two new-ish shows will debut on Fridays this fall:

  • MasterChef Junior
  • Dracula

MasterChef and Gordon Ramsay certainly aren’t new to the FOX network, but MasterChef Junior is the newest addition to this franchise and will feature contestants between the ages of 8-13 years old. Mostly I’m assuming that this cooking competition will put my cooking skills to shame.

According to NBC, this version of Dracula is a, “sophisticated and sexy take on Bram Stoker’s classic novel…” so that should tell you right away whether or not this series is for you. Also, in this reincarnation, Dracula will be working alongside Van Helsing.

Don’t Forget to DVR These Returning Favorites

There’s a little something for everyone on Fridays this fall. Returning scripted series include The Carrie Diaries, Grimm, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, The Neighbors, and Last Man Standing.

Nikita’s Final Season

Although no official return date has been announced, the CW’s little-show-that-could is expected to return to the TV schedule later this fall. My guess is that Nikita will return for its fourth season and final six episodes after America’s Next Top Model completes its current cycle.

Fall 2013 TV Guide: Thursday Night

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.
