10 NEW SHOWS THAT ARE WORTH YOUR TIME
This fall, everything old is old again. Do you like military shows? There are three, so interchangeable they might as well be called Gun Go Bang. There are three more superhero shows, all from Marvel, and three reboots — Dynasty, S.W.A.T. and Will & Grace — with a fourth, Roseanne, due later this season. In other words, if you thought last fall’s creative standouts This Is Us, Atlanta, Speechless and Insecure were going to spur the TV industry to ever greater heights — they didn’t. Every season has its high points, but as a whole, this one is shaping up to be far less impressive than the last. Still, there are some good options out there, spread among broadcast, cable and streaming networks. Finding them in this era of near-daily premieres, however, is the trick — which is why USA TODAY’s Robert Bianco offers this guide to fall’s 10 best bets, in chronological order. Mark your calendars and plunge in.
The Will & Grace gang is back: Sean Hayes as Jack McFarland, Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, Eric McCormack as Will Truman, Debra Messing as Grace Adler.
