1. THE BLACKLIST

NBC’s new drama The Blacklist is one of my favorite pilots for the upcoming Fall TV season. James Spader plays ex-government agent Redmond “Red” Harrington, who has been one of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives for decades. Red surrenders himself, stating that he’ll help the FBI catch a long-wanted terrorist on the condition that he deals directly with Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Keen, played by Megan Boon (Law & Order: Los Angeles). Now Keen is a rookie, straight out of Quantico for her first day on the job. Why does he choose her? What’s so special about Liz? This one is definitely worth watching.

The Blacklist stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix and Ryan Eggold.

Premieres Monday, September 23, 10pm ET

Michael J. Fox is back on TV! If you love him on The Good Wife, you can finally catch him on the tube every week. Michael plays Mike Henry, New York’s beloved news anchor who puts his professional life on the back burner to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

The show takes place five years later with Mike’s former boss, played by Wendell Pierce (The Wire), wanting to get him back on the air, and shows how Mike juggles work, home and family life – just like the old days.

The Michael J. Fox Show stars Michael J. Fox, Wendell Pierce, Betsy Brandt, Conor Romero, Juliette Goglia, Jack Gore and Katie Finneran.

Premieres Thursday, September 26, 9pm ET

3. IRONSIDE

NBC’s new drama Ironside stars Blair Underwood as New York Detective Robert T. Ironside. But don’t confuse this Ironside with the original. ”There are three elements from the original,” says Underwood. “We took his name, Robert T. Ironside, the fact that he is a detective and the fact that he happens to be in a wheelchair.” This upcoming drama has a ton of class acts that you won’t want to miss, includingGreek alum Spencer Grammer and the ever so talented Pablo Schreiber, who is in pretty much everything at the moment, such as the Netflix hit Orange is the New Black.

Premieres Wednesday, October 2, 10pm ET

To their surprise, they find out that she is not only secretly dating a boy across town, played by Joseph Haro (Awkwardand Glee), but is pregnant AND engaged.

NBC’s new comedy Sean Saves the World follows Sean, played by Sean Hayes (Will & Grace), a divorced dad who juggles a demanding career, a pushy mom, (played by the talented Linda Lavin), and a teenage daughter who moves in full-time.
