Fall is creeping in. While the temperature may still say Summer (and technically, it still is) it starts to feel like Fall when school is back in session and the football teams head back out on the field. Another sure sign of Fall; new television lineups.
Television shows have a lot of competition in this day and age. It used to be 3 or 4 channels worth of sitcoms and dramas, but now you have all kinds of competition. And year round. However, there is something that is still exciting about seeing the new fall network lineups.
As a comic book fan, I am excited about the premier of The Flash
and the third season of Arrow on CW, as well as Gotham on Fox. I feel I gave Agents of SHIELD a fair shot, so based on that I probably won't be watching season 2 or the premier of Agent Carter on ABC. There are plenty more new shows to keep an eye on.
Could I have imagined five different comic book related shows on the air when I was a kid? No way. In fact, lets take a look at the top 10 TV Shows in the US from 25 years ago. (1989-1990 season)
10. NFL Monday Night Football (some things never change)
9. Empty Nest (a spin-off of number 6)
8. The Wonder Years
7. 60 Minutes
6. The Golden Girls
5. America's Funniest Home Videos (now replaced by YouTube)
4. A Different World (a spin-off of number 2)
2. The Cosby Show
