Starts Monday, Sept. 17 at 10 on NBC

Starts on Monday, Sept. 24 at 8:30 on CBS
David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the pair behind Will & Grace, offer a new show about a gay man and his straight male BFF. Starring Michael Urie (of Ugly Betty) and David Krumholtz (NUMB3RS) as friends Louie and Joe. Joe is engaged to Ali (Sophia Bush- One Tree Hill) and Louie is dating Wyatt (Superman’s Brandon Routh). Their relationships cause issues with their friendship in this comedy.
The Mindy Project

Hilarious Mindy Kaling (The Office, The 40 Year Old Virgin, No Strings Attached) created and stars in this fun new sitcom. Her character is successful at work (she’s an OBGYN) but not so successful when it comes to romance.
666 Park Avenue
Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10 on ABC
This adaptation of Gabrielle Pierce's book series doesn’t feature 666 in its name as a coincidence. It’s about the residents of an Upper East Side Building who have all made deals with The Devil to get what they want. It stars Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters), Rachael Taylor (Charlie's Angels), Terry O'Quinn (Lost) and the always amazing Vanessa Williams (I shouldn’t have to list her work—you should KNOW).
Starts on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. on ABC
Country music fans will love this new show starring Connie Britton as Rayna James, a 40ish country singer who is losing relevance in the music industry and Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, a new teen country sensation.
Starts on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 on NBC
Hotties Jesse Spencer (House), Taylor Kinney (Lady Gaga’s lover, The Vampire Diaries) and David Eigenberg (Steve of SATC) star as firefighters in this new drama by the creator of the Law & Order franchise.
Beauty and the Beast
Starts on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 9 on CW
This remake of the 1987 series starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman (not a remake of the Disney version) stars Kristin Kreuk (Superman) and New Zealand actor Jay Ryan. The attractive Ryan will only have a scar on his face, so we will have something nice to look at.
Starts on Friday, Nov. 2 at 8:30 on ABC
Reba McEntire is back! Again, she plays a character with the same first name, but her character lives in Malibu. Legendary Lily Tomlin stars as Reba’s mother and the adorable Sara Rue stars as her new neighbor.
We hope that this guide will be helpful to you when deciding what to watch this new season!
