Fall TV 2015 – 2016: What’s eclectik watching?

May 29, 2015


It’s tradition … fall time is coming, what am I watching this season.
We know I watch too much television … I have two Tivos and yadda yadda yadda

Anyway, I looked over the schedule of new and returning shows and I have listed what i will be checking out … and tweeting about … and posting on here about
Enough of that, lets get to the shows


Sunday Night Football (NBC)
Football over everything … all other shows will be TiVo’d

8:00 Once Upon a Time (ABC)
No clue why I’m still watching, the show has gotten terrible … oh I know, I still want that Evil Queen (Lanna Parrilla)

8:30 Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX)
Still a good show, and Amy Santiago keeps getting hotter by the season

9:00 Family Guy (FOX)
I watch few cartoons (Like 3 or 4) so I keep this around because it’s still funnier than most sitcoms

*Oil (ABC)
This is a new show that LOOKS like it’s trying to be the new Dallas … I figured I’d record the first episode and see if it’s any good.


8:00 SuperGirl (November) (CBS)
Kara Zor-El escaped her home planet of Krypton amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has concealed the powers she shares with her (ahem) “famous cousin.” But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

8:00 Gotham (FOX)
This is NOT a good show, but I like comic book stuff and there was nothing else on at 8 when it started … ‘sides wrestling and WWE blows for the most part; Ill keep watching to see how the bird does and because Jada is NOT on there.

9:00 MNF
Football over everything.

9:00 Scorpion (CBS)
Wasn’t a bad show, I like the tech/problem solving type shows, and I had no idea Katherine McPhee was so hot … but her character DID get annoying so I could eject at any moment.

9:00 Minority Report (FOX)
Picks up 10 years after the end of Pre-crime in DC, where one of the three Pre-cogs, Dash struggles to lead a “normal” human life, haunted as he is by visions of the future. But then Dash meets a detective who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.

10:00 NCIS: Los Angels (CBS)

10:00 Blindspot (NBC)
A beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, is found naked in Times Square with her body fully covered in intricate tattoos. Her discovery sets off a vast and complex mystery that immediately ignites the attention of the FBI who begin to follow the road map on her body to reveal a larger conspiracy of crime while bringing her closer to discovering the truth about her identity.


8:00 The Muppets (ABC)*
The Muppets return to prime time with a series that, for the first time ever, will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires; a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages.

The Second best Comic book show on TV (next to Daredevil) So the rumor is the first season was an alternate time line … who knows what’s about to happen next (and I hope they recast or kill Iris)

9:00 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (ABC)
This was not a good show, it only got interesting twice, after Winter Soldier and when they introduced the Inhumans. Skye is unlikable, and Coulson is being wasted … either be a spy show or be a super hero show … I will keep watching though because why not?

10:00 Quantico (ABC)
A diverse group of recruits have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

10:00 Limitless (CBS)*
Based on the 2011 feature film starring Cooper, the series follows Brian Finch as he discovers the power of the mysterious drug NZT, and is coerced into using his newfound abilities to solve weekly cases for the FBI.


8:00 Survivor (CBS)
I continue to watch because it entertains me … stop judging!

8:00 Arrow (CW)
Formerly the best comic book show on TV … kinda lost it’s way and gotten wack, but its still better than most. I still think it should swap times with Flash because every time they have a crossover it seems backwards. They have to make Felicity cool again, glad Ray will be gone, we get Speedy but … If the Arrow comes back what will the Police do?

9:00 Modern Family (ABC)
Lily is the funniest on the show, I like watching how they try and hide that the youngest daughter is now the hot one … Gloria needs to start bouncing around like season 1 again.

9:00 Empire (FOX)
I have no idea how I got wrapped into watching this … I honestly don’t like a single character on the show … well cept Anika and the Rihanna Teyana Taylor knockoff … but that’s merely aesthetics
Need a night time soap though I guess … it’s the new Dynasty … or Falcon Crest.

10:00 Code Black (CBS)
Looks interesting … no?


8:00 TNF
Football. Over. Everything.

8:00 Heroes Reborn (NBC)
The 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season, where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities.

9:00 Scandal (ABC)
This has turned into a not very good show as well … Im ready for them to pull the plug, every character that was dope is now wack (cept Poppa Pope) … maybe they will get back to the “Fixer Formula” and Huck can be Huck … but probably not and also #ShutUpQuinn forver.

9:00 The Blacklist (NBC)
Could be the best show on network TV … problem is you only barely follow whats going on and it makes little sense … but it has Ultron! What more can you ask for?

10:00 How To Get Away With Murder (ABC)
The Scooby Doo gang: The College years, cept they only go to one class, never go home, and do nothing but work pro-bono for some lady with a wipe-away face.
I still watch though … not . sure. Why.

10:00 The Player (NBC)
Looks like a winner … maybe.


This is when I should be out doing life or something …

8:00 Master Chef Junior (FOX)
WHY would they put … oh! So little kids and their parents would be at home watching, got it.

9:00 Shark Tank
I like it, hate the female judges … and Cuban is a little annoying as well.

My Premium TV Cable shows…

Power (June 6)
Should be really good after the season 1 Cliffhanger … plus Lala topless this season
Survivors Remorse

True Detective (June 21)
I couldnt get into the first season, I’ll give this one a shot
Ballers (June 21)
Looks like it could be a winner … might be that next show!

The Affair

Strike Back

Dont forget Netflix

Orange is the new Black (June 12)
AKA Jessica Jones

On Deck

These shows are coming, no one knows when … but they look like they may be worth my time.

When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen a future he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they’ve ever known?

The Catch ABC

Coach NBC
This follow-up to the ’90s sitcom picks up 18 years later and find Nelson’s Hayden Fox interrupting his retirement to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.

Shades of Blue

When she’s trapped by the FBI, however, and forced to inform on her own “brothers,” she’ll have to walk the fine line between love, loyalty, honor and betrayal, and try to keep it together for her daughter’s future.

Uncle Buck
Based on the hit John Candy-starrer, Uncle Buck centers around a fun-loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay. By happy coincidence, his nieces and nephew’s nanny has just quit, and his brother and sister-in-law need his help. Uncle Buck’s unconventional personality just may make him the right fit for the family — while they may be the answer to his problems, too.

Wicked City
Each season, Wicked City will follow a different case set in a different noteworthy era of LA history, starting with a murder case from 1982 centered on the rock and roll, cocaine-infused revelry of the Sunset Strip. Alliances are formed between detectives, reporters, drug dealers and club-goers to solve a serial murder case.

So that’s it! That’s the list

    always look forward to reading your TV viewing preview. Wicked City sounds intriguing….

    • @eclectik

      All of the shows I posted and you’re interested in ONE?!

  • Doreen Magee

    I hate when decent movies are turned into poorly cast and directed TV shows (Uncle Buck, Limitless, etc). And Empire is terrible. I have nothing good to say about it, yet I still watch. I look forward to following along and comparing notes…cept for the football thing.

    I’m very interested in where they take The Blacklist next season. They need to reduce the number of characters a little. Sometimes it seems like they introduce a new character, mention their name in passing, and then expect you to remember who they are eight episodes later.

    • @eclectik

      RIGHT! Then later on you’re like … I think I know who that is, or maybe that’s a guy they introduced before? Maybe?
      Love the show tho … Even if the original premise is meaningless lol
