Tater’s TV Week Ends: The CW Fall Schedule

I’m surprised there are some new shows to talk about considering the CW renewed every show that was not already ending.  I actually watch a lot of CW because I really like the DC shows.

Monday – 8pm All American 9PM Black Lightning

I really like All American and I was happy to see t was renewed. Watch it on Netflix this summer and then watch season 2 in the fall. It’s good. We watched some Black Lightning, but when we got behind on it we realized we didn’t really care enough to go back to finish it.

Tuesday – 8pm The Flash 9pm Arrow

The two original DC shows together again as Arrow begins its final season. We stopped watching Arrow a while back. I feel like we need to catch up on Netflix over the summer so we can watch the final season. Flash is fun and even though I’m behind because I’m waiting for my daughter to watch with me, I still really like it.

Wednesday – 8pm Riverdale 9pm Nancy Drew

I really liked the first season of Riverdale, but couldn’t make it through more than a handful of episodes of season 2. I will probably give Nancy Drew a try to see what they do with it.

Thursday – 8pm Supernatural 9pm Legacies

I don’t watch either one. My daughter has been watching Legacies now that it is on Netflix, so I’m sure she will want me to record the next season for her.

Friday – 8pm Charmed 9pm Dynasty

Two remakes. I have no interest in either.

Sunday – 8pm Batwoman 9pm Supergirl

More DC shows. I still like Supergirl a lot and I will give Batwoman a try. I’m looking forward to the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover next season.

Midseason – Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene, Legends of Tomorrow, Roswell, In the Dark and The 100. I will only watch Legends. Legends is the most fun of the DC shows.

I might do a look at the entire schedule tonight, but now that we all watch on streaming and DVR does it really matter what is on against what?

Tater Takes on the Fall TV Schedule

The four broadcast networks have revealed their fall schedules. I will go night by night and discuss the offerings and tell you what I will watch. This is only for the big 4 (ABC,CBS,FOX,NBC and CW) any cable shows will be highlighted in my much anticipated(by no one) fall “What’s on TV Tonight” series.

Sunday:

ABC: Once Upon a Time, Secrets and Lies, Quantico

CBS: NCIS: Los Angeles, Madam Secretary, Elementary

FOX: The Simpsons, Son of Zorn, Family Guy, Last Man on Earth

NBC: Sunday Night Football

Nothing great here. We do like Madam Secretary, but that’s about it. Luckily, Walking Dead will start in October and Game of Thrones and Fear the Walking Dead in spring. Otherwise, football is the only real choice for the night.I used to watch Elementary, but got bored with it pretty quick.

Monday:

ABC:  Dancing with the Has-Beens, Conviction

CBS: Big Bang, Kevin Can Wait, 2 Broke Girls, Odd Couple, Scorpion(Big Bang to Thursdays after football. Kevin moves to 8 Man with a Plan premieres at 8:30)

FOX: Gotham, Lucifer

NBC: The Voice, Timeless

CW: Supergirl, Jane the Virgin

A little better than Sunday night. We like Supergirl and hopefully the move to CW will help it. We love Lucifer a lot more than expected. It’s a fun show. Conviction has Hayley Atwell, so I will definitely watch it. I will admit that I like Kevin James and Matt LeBlanc, so since there are no DVR conflict issues I will give Kevin and Man with a Plan a try. I’ve always had a soft spot for sitcoms.

Tuesday:

ABC: The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh off the Boat, Real O’Neals, SHIELD

CBS: NCIS, Bull, NCIS: New Orleans

FOX: Brooklyn 99, New Girl, Scream Queens

NBC: The Voice, This is Us, Chicago Fire

CW: Flash, No Tomorrow

Really good comedy night. The Middle, Fresh off the Boat, The Real O’Neals and Brooklyn 99 are all very good. I also love the Flash. It’s the best superhero show on TV right now. My wife watches the NCIS’s o that take TV/DVR space and makes me watch The Middle on demand. New shows don’t interest me at all. Do we really want a Michael Weatherly headlining show based on Dt Phil? I think not.

Wednesday:

ABC: The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, Black-ish, Designated Survivor

CBS: Survivor, Criminal Minds, Code Black

FOX: Lethal Weapon, Empire

NBC: Blindspot, Law and Order SVU, Chicago PD

CW: Arrow, Frequency

I still love Survivor and it is the only show I insist on watching live(I live tweet it). Modern Family is still consistently good. I’ve heard good things about the other comedies, but have never actually watched them. Not sure about Speechless. I think Code Black might be the best medical show since ER. Arrow is another very good superhero show. DC does TV well. I liked the Lethal Weapon and Frequency movies enough to watch at least one episode of the series. Also, Damon Wayans as Murtagh could be really good.

Thursday:

ABC: Grey’s Anatomy, Notorious, How to Get Away With Murder

CBS: Football and then Big Bang, The Great Indoors, Mom, Life in Pieces, Pure Genius

FOX: Rosewood, Bones

NBC: football and then Superstore, The Good Place, Chicago Med, The Blacklist

CW: Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural

I still love Grey’s so I will be watching it. I’ve stuck with Bones all these years, so I will watch the final season. We love Superstore and I’m very happy it was renewed. Legends of Tomorrow season 1 was a mess and I still haven’t watched a lot of it, but I read about the ending and I am hopeful about season 2. We still watch Blacklist, but I’m getting a little bored with it. I might try The Good Place because I like Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.

Friday:

ABC: Last Man Standing, Dr Ken, Shark Tank, 20/20

CBS: Macgyver, Hawaii 50, Blue Bloods

FOX: Hell’s Kitchen, The Exorcist

NBC: Caught on Camera, Grimm, Dateline

CW: Vampire Diaries, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Because I am old and boring I am home to watch TV on Friday nights. I’m sad that Amazing Race is only  midseason show this year. I still like watching it. We do like Last Man Standing and Grimm. My wife watched 5-0 and I watch Blue Bloods. My daughter watched Vampire Diaries. I will probably give the new Macgyver a shot, but I am not hopeful.

Saturday:

Football and a collection of “encore” showings. Nothing to see here.

Overall, it is not an exciting schedule. None of the new shows sound like must sees. Good shows like Agent Carter, Galavant and Limitless are gone. Amazing Race, The 100 and iZombie are held until midseason. I’m hoping I will be pleasantly surprised by some new stuff or that the new midseason shows will be good. I will have review of new shows with the “What’s on TV” series in the fall.
