Your Guide to the 2009 Fall Schedule

Bryan Jones May 22, 2009 2

tv-fuzzNow that the networks have finished their upfront presentations with advertisers, and released their fall schedules, it high time that we put together a comprehensive schedule to help you plan your fall. With news shows being added, shows flipping networks, and old shows changing nights, you need to set your schedule and figure out what you’re going to be watching live each week, and what you can afford to DVR.

If you don’t see your favorite show listed below, you might want to check our Canceled Shows Resource Guide to make sure you still have a show to watch! If you don’t see your show on that list, never fear, its probably just being held as a midseason replacement. Off the top of my head, here are some of the midseason replacements that have already been announced:

Day One (new series), V (new series), Chuck, Mercy (new series), 100 Questions (new series), 24, Past Life (new series), Happy Town (new series), Human Target (new series), Friday Night Lights, and The Deep End (new series).

  • Adelaide

    Every fall for years and years my son(s) and I have played a game of giving a show the kiss of death or a succeed. My late son was better at it than my oldest son. We a few years back added Fox and what was then UP and WB now CW. Out of all the shows that were on the 2008-2009 season -over twenty only four survived.

    I won 17 to 11.

    Wish we could do cable like TNT and USA, want a ht show and are a famous actor don't do network TV do cable.
