What's Coming Back?
- Dancing With The Stars: The 21st season premieres Monday night on ABC. While many critics have set low expectations for this season, especially with judge Len Goodman sitting out, I am excited. This season features an interesting cast, including: Gary Busey, Nick Carter, Paula Deen, Bindi Irwin, Alexa Penavega and her husband Carlos, Tamar Braxton, Victor Espnioza, Andy Grammer, Hayes Grier, Chaka Khan, Alex Skarlatos, and Kim Zolciak Biermann.
- Nashville: Season 4 premieres September 23 (happy birthday to me!) on ABC. Last season left us with Deacon's transplant surgery, Scarlett moving in with Dr. Rand, Will Lexington coming out, Juliette going crazy and Teddy getting arrested for corruption. It's going to be another intense season!
- The Amazing Race: Season 27 of this CBS hit premieres Friday, September 25th. After reviewing cast profiles online, my pre-season predictions for winners are Kelsey & Joey or Tanner & Josh.
- The Voice: Blind auditions begin September 21st on NBC. This seasons coaches are Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, and the newly single Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani.
What Got Canceled?
- Parenthood: This NBC hit ended in January.
- About A Boy: NBC's cancelation of this sitcom came as no surprise to many. I enjoyed season 1, but season 2 fell short of what could be a great show.
- A.D.: This miniseries from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey was not picked back up by NBC, but there is talk of it coming to Burnett & Downey's new network, OTT in late 2016.
What Is New?
- Angel From Hell: This new CBS show starring Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson premieres November 17th. It is about an intense doctor (Lawson) whose life gets interrupted by a wild "guardian angel" (Lynch.)
- Chicago Med: This NBC drama is a spinoff of the network's recent hits, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. Premiering November 17th, the show follows the day-to-day chaos of the biggest hospital in Chicago, with an intertwining of events and characters from the other two shows.
- Coach: The hit from the 1980's returns with Craig T. Nelson revising his role as Hayden Fox. In the new NBC series he will come out of retirement to help his son coach college football at an Ivy League school. I could not be more excited for this since my world revolves around the coaching lifestyle of college football. A start date has not been released yet by NBC.
- Heartbreaker: Another NBC medical series, Heartbreaker follows the life of a heart surgeon, both professionally and personally. It stars Melissa George, Don Hany, and one of my favorites, Dave Annable.
- Code Black: It seems this will be the year of the medical dramas. Code Black is a new CBS series with a remarkable cast. Marcia Gay Harden, Luis Guzman, and Bonnie Sommerville are just a few of the stars that will be in the show about a Los Angeles emergency room. It premieres September 30.
