Fall TV Checklist

August 31, 2016 by Kenmore


Are you ready for the avalanche of television offerings about to hit? We can’t wait! It’s a chance to resolve cliffhangers, immerse yourself in a new series, and (if we’re being honest), a great excuse to spend a few lazy nights indoors. Here’s a few tips to help you get ready for the laughs, drama and twists ahead!

The Snacks
Whether you enjoy sweet, savory or a mix of both, a tasty treat is the perfect companion to your favorite shows. Give these fall favorites a taste:

Microwave Apple Pie — easy to make, eat and cleanup after.
Cheesy Pumpkin Dip — the season to enjoy pumpkin is short, so we say start early.

The Equipment
Upgrade to stunning quality. Our Kenmore Elite® UHDTV offers exquisite 4k ultra high definition, enhancing the resolution of average HD four times over. The UHD Upscaling can even upgrade lower resolution media to an impressive, near ultra-high definition experience with enhanced detail and optimized picture quality. Your favorite zombie show will look that much more realistic with higher contrast and vivid colors.

The Shows
Set your DVR schedules — there’s a lot of great television on the horizon.

New shows to get excited about:

Better Things (premieres September 8, 10 p.m. on FX) — Created by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon, this show borrows the same Louie humor to tell the story of a divorced actress raising three daughters by herself.

This is Us (premieres September 20, 10 p.m. on NBC) — If you loved Parenthood and need another show to laugh (and cry) with, this dramedy starring Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia is for you.

Designated Survivor (premieres September 21, 10 p.m. on ABC) — Kiefer Sutherland’s return to primetime in a 24-like setting is enough to get us interested. The addition of Kal Penn and Maggie Q is the cherry on top.

Marvel’s Luke Cage (premieres September 30 on Netflix) — Marvel shows have found a happy home on Netflix, and after a taste of what Mike Colter brought to the Cage role on Jessica Jones, we’re definitely excited for more.

Returning shows we can’t wait to catch up with:

Narcos, Season 2 (September 2, on Netflix) — Everyone knows of Pablo Escobar, but this take on his rise and fall — and subsequent all out war with the Drug Enforcement Agency hunting him down — is too captivating not to watch.

American Horror Story (September 14, 10 p.m. on FX) — The latest in Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology is still being kept secret, teased out in little bites of terror, and making us even more excited to find out the theme.

Elementary (October 2, 10 p.m. on CBS) — We’re more than ready to join Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu for another round of adventure, in this modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Sherlock Holmes character.

Jane the Virgin (October 17, 9 p.m. on The CW) — If you’ve been watching, it’s not hard to see why Gina Rodriguez won the Golden Globe for her role in this comedy-drama. We’re ready for anything this new season brings!

Special events:

Get ready for the main event in television — the 68th Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 18 at 8 p.m. on ABC. You can start planning your award viewing party now with these tips for hosting like a pro.
