The month of September brings back many long awaited things: football, pumpkin spice lattes, and fall TV premieres. The week of September 20th is not just another week in TV. It is a long anticipated event! And while some shows have already debuted and others are scheduled for coming weeks, this is the biggest week in TV for fall 2015. Many of your favorites are re-starting this week, while hot, new shows are making their debuts. Check out the lineup.
Some of the top reality shows of the past make their season premieres this week, including The Voice, Survivor, The Amazing Race, and Shark Tank. Starting the week off with The Voice is a must. Three competition phases, vocal coaches, and a promise of a recording contract promises big excitement. In its 9th season, The Voice takes two nights to show us the competition, so block off some time Monday and Tuesday nights.
Wednesday brings us Survivor, the original reality television show. Fifteen years ago, it changed the world of television and this Wednesday new tribes converge, and the competition for $1 million is on again. And because Survivor loves nothing more than bringing back favorite former players, this season all players are returning in the season of Second Chances.
Friday’s Amazing Race and Shark Tank round out the week. The Amazing Race begins its 27th competition with 11 teams setting off from Venice Beach, CA to travel the world. Shark Tank, in its sixth year, shows contestants pitching ideas to multimillionaires who use their proven business smarts to decide whether investment in these ideas is a good idea.
Thursday’s Dynamic Lineup
Of course, one night stands out from the others. Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC on Thursday for its 10th season! The doctors of Seattle Grace are full of new drama, excitement, and relationships. Also at 8pm, is Heroes Reborn premiering on NBC. This remake of the popular show Heroes, which aired from 2006 to 2010, is about ordinary people, who discovered they had extraordinary powers.
ABC has a powerful lineup on Thursday nights, with back to back to back dramas of Grey’s, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder. Scandal is in its fifth season, and the tension between the President and Olivia Pope is so thick you could cut it with a knife. Murder, in its second year, is an incredibly popular story about a law professor and her students, and the murder conspiracy they find themselves sucked into.
NBC’s answer to Murder is The Player, a new show about a security expert sucked into a high-stakes game where people bet on his ability to successfully complete crimes that are assigned to him. This high drama show is definitely must-see TV. All in all, Thursday is going to give your DVR a workout, and it will be well worth it.
This week is packed full of exciting television, something you do not want to miss. In fact, we encourage you to set the DVR and plan a weekend of catching up on your new favorite shows. Don’t be the person who can’t keep up with the office chatter about the latest episodes and newest shows!
