Fall TV 2015: What I’m Watching (Thursday Edition)

It’s Fall TV time! As premiere week continues rolling along, I am sharing my list of shows that I’ll be watching and maybe watching each day of the week.

THURSDAYS

  • Sleepy Hollow
  • How to Get Away with Murder
  • Scandal
  • Heroes Reborn (NEW)
  • The Big Bang Theory

On Tuesday, I mentioned that at some point, it became the day full of really good TV. On the flip side, I have no idea when Thursdays became so boring. I still have just enough to fill my night, but at the same time you have to wonder: what happened to Must See TV Thursday (I know that was an NBC thing, but I’m applying it to all the networks)?

Now granted, ABC has been doing really well with its TGIT line-up of Shondaland shows, and I plan to still watch Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder (I gave up on Grey’s Anatomy a long time ago). But what else is on Thursday for me? Sleepy Hollow, moved from its former Monday slot; and The Big Bang Theory, which is technically on Mondays right now, until CBS is done airing Thursday Night Football around November, and then it’ll move back to Thursday.

The only kind-of new show is Heroes Reborn, the follow-up limited event series (?) taking place five years after the events of the original series (also, how long it has actually been since the show went off the air). I’m on the fence about the show mainly because of how badly I got burned watching the original series. Like season one was great, then the S1 finale happened, and it was all downhill from there. I didn’t even stick with it to the very end. I went to the SDCC panel for this, and despite how excited they were in trying to convince us that it’s not the same Heroes, I still have my doubts. The big sell for me to watch this follow-up is, without a doubt, Zachary Levi (and then Dylan Bruce). If this turns out to be like S1 Heroes then I am in, but if I see anything that gives me S2-4 vibes, I’m out.
