Fall is officially here next week, and so is fall TV! New seasons of some of my shows start are kicking off. Here’s what I’m looking forward to:
Modern Family – September 24
Modern Family kicks off its sixth season on Wednesday, September 23rd at 9 pm. This has been a quick favorite for me thanks to my own family’s love of this show. My DVR is already programmed to record this, but I’ll likely be tuning in to watch live as well. Did you know Modern Family has had a season premiere on September 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26? Isn’t that weird but cool?
Law & Order: SVU – September 24
Competing in the 9 pm timeslot, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit returns for its 16th season – woah! Okay, so this show isn’t the same without Stabler, but we still have Benson! Benson– well, Mariska Hartigay– is the reason I haven’t given up on this show yet. Plus, I like Amanda Rollins even though I think this is a reused character name. I’m not quite caught up, but this is an easy show to binge-marathon, and that’s exactly what I plan to do.
Scandal – September 25
On Thursday, Scandal returns for its 4th season at 9 pm. This is a show I binge-watched in its entirety this summer off of the recommendation of a friend. It’s also the kind of show that you have to stay current with. I already know I won’t be home on Thursday night to watch this, and Hulu promises that current season episodes appear 8 days after premiere… um, yikes that’s a long wait! Looks like I’m going to have to DVR this one as well.
Amazing Race – September 25
One of my major guilty pleasures, The Amazing Race returns on Friday night at 8 pm for its 25th season! Last season I had a great time recapping the Sunday night adventures of Youtubers Meghan & Joey, the Harlem Globetrotters, and my beloved Cowboys! Alas, we have a recap-filled fall already and I won’t have the opportunity this time around. You can be that I’ll be watching, though! I’m particularly excited to see surfer and shark-attack survivor Bethany Hamilton take the race on, and of course, pick a new season favorite!
What returning shows are you looking forward to this fall?
