Shows will make their debut on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX

September marks the traditional beginning of the new network television season on the four major networks.

New and anticipated shows will make their debut this fall on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.

Many of these shows will be canceled before the end of the season, while some will go on to become hit shows and last for years.

“Sleepy Hollow,” a modern interpretation of Washington Irving’s short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” premiered Monday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. on Fox.

“Monday’s third episode drew eight million viewers and performed well with the young adults prized by advertisers,” according to USA TODAY.  “After just three episodes, Sleepy Hollow has earned a second season.”

“Dads,” a comedy starring Emmy Award winner Seth Green and Emmy Award nominee Giovanni Ribisi, premiered Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. on Fox.

“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane is part of the team that created the comedy that “explores the often treacherous terrain of the father-son landscape,” according to Fox.

Fox also introduced “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” a comedy starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, which premiered at 8:30 p.m. following “Dads.”

Samberg is known mostly for his sketches on “Saturday Night Live,” where he was a cast member from 2005 to 2012.

“Mom,” a comedy created by Chuck Lorre, which stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney, premiered Monday, Sept. 23 at 9:30 p.m. on CBS.

Lorre is responsible for creating hit television shows such as “The Big Bang Theory,” and “Two and a Half Men.”

“Mom” is a show about three generations of women who had children at a young age, and in the series premiere, Faris’ character finds out that her teenage daughter is pregnant.

CBS also introduced “Hostages,” a drama starring Emmy Award winner Toni Collette and Golden Globe Award winner Dylan McDermott, after “Mom” on Sept. 23 at 10 p.m.

“Hostages” is a “high-octane suspense drama about Dr. Ellen Sanders, a premiere surgeon thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI agent Duncan Carlisle,” according to CBS.

NBC’s new drama, “The Blacklist,” also premiered Sept. 23 at 10 p.m.

ABC introduced “The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife,” family comedies that premiered Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. respectively.

“The Crazy Ones,” a comedy from CBS, stars Academy Award winner Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar; it premiered Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m.

According to CBS News, this is Williams’ first return to the small screen since “Mork and Mindy,” whose final episode aired 31 years ago.

Emmy-nominated actor Michael J. Fox stars in NBC’s new comedy, “The Michael J. Fox Show,” which premiered Sept. 26 at 9 p.m.

“Thursday night’s battle of returning ’80s sitcom icons was no contest,” according to Entertainment Weekly.  “The premiere of Robin Williams’ new CBS comedy The Crazy Ones hugely out-performed the return of Michael J. Fox to NBC.”

CBS introduced “We Are Men,” starring actors Kal Penn and Jerry O’Connell, Monday, Sept. 30 at 8:30 p.m.

NBC’s drama “Ironside” premiered Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 10 p.m.

“Ironside” stars Blair Underwood, an award-winning actor, director and producer; and Spencer Grammer, daughter of actor Kelsey Grammer.

NBC introduced “Sean Saves the World,” a comedy starring Sean Hayes on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 9 p.m.

Hayes is known for his role as Jack McFarland on NBC’s Emmy winning comedy, “Will and Grace,” which ended in 2006.

ABC’s “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,” a spin-off of their show, “Once Upon a Time,” will premiere Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.

“Only time will tell whether Wonderland can bring that same magic as the flagship series, but producers are wasting no time in making sure the spin-off has solid footing,” according to TV Guide.

“In addition to having a strong and recognizable female protagonist, they’ve already promised there will be some crossover with the Once characters … hopefully it will be enough to get ABC out of its Thursday at 8/7c funk, TV Guide said.”
