Fall Premieres Guide for 10/1

This Sunday’s TV kick-starts October’s line-up of even more premieres for us all to enjoy.
 

The Toy Box (7:00 PM on ABC)
Season 2 of this Shark Tank-like reality show returns, with kids and adults seeing as judges for would-be toys. When the winning product will end up on store shelves all over the world, you never know who’s going to walk in the door and pitch you their idea!

Bob’s Burgers: S8E1

Bob's Burgers (7:30 PM on Fox)
After winning an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program at the Creative Arts Emmys last month, this lovable family sitcom returns for it’s 7th Season. Bob, it seems, has always dreamed of being an Outdoorsman, so when he finds a local specialty store is going out of business...well, you know what’s going to happen. Not to be missed!

Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (on Netflix)
Once the enfant terrible of all the world’s cooks (and kitchens!) Anthony Bourdain has been there and done it all. Now he’s showing us why he is such an amazing chef: he’s interested in every food! And not just the food, but the people who make it and eat it. It makes for fascinating tv, and this season features the cuisine of Singapore!

The Simpsons (8:00 PM on Fox)
‘Dogtown’ began ruling Springfield in last year’s finale, much to Homer’s annoyance – even though he caused it all! Downtrodden Gil showed some moxie but it was Marge who saved the day. FOX has renewed the show through seasons 29 and 30!

Shark Tank (8:00 PM on ABC)
They don’t call it Shark Tank for nothing - at times vicious, interrogative and just plain mean - it’s so much fun to watch! This season begins with a two hour premiere and has some amazing guest stars lined up for the rest of the season, like Sir Richard Branson, Bethenny Frankel, Rohan Oza, and Alex Rodriguez.

Wisdom of the Crowd (8:30 PM on CBS)
They’re using cell phones and social media to crowd-source crime solving - but is it a complete invasion of privacy? That’s your decision. The trailer looks really good, with the original premise turning into something much bigger than ever intended.

Ghosted: S1E1

Ghosted (8:30 PM on Fox)

This show about a mismatched duo features LAPD’s best missing persons detective is paired up with a disgraced Stanford astrophysicist to investigate events which may or may not have a paranormal element. Both are guaranteed their previous jobs back if they team up and work for the ‘Bureau Underground.’ This comedy looks great; I like the tropes, the comic timing and am looking forward to the silly missions they’ll undoubtedly be sent on.

Family Guy (9:00 PM on Fox)
Seth McFarlane’s dysfunctional family returns, with evil Stewie Griffin remaining my favorite character – hey, he can build time machines! I don’t know how many episodes the late Adam West recorded, but I hope he gets a good send-off this season. As always with Family Guy, expect the unexpected.

NCIS: Los Angeles (9:30 PM on CBS)
"We’re headed for all out nuclear war!" The 9th season takes off running and doesn’t stop until the bang don’t happen – if it did there wouldn’t be a season left to watch, so we can safely assume they save the day. It’s how they do it that’s tense, thrilling and so much fun.

Last Man on Earth (9:30 PM on Fox)
The fourth season of our post-apocalyptic sitcom has arrived. "We have a two day old baby on board and a nuclear dust cloud hot on our tails!" Never fear though, Captain Tandy will have thought of everything... probably...

Curb Your Enthusiasm: S9E1

Curb Your Enthusiasm (10:00 PM on HBO)
Larry David is BACK! It’s been seven long years waiting for season 9! We need this comedy, right here, right now. I’m yelling for society!!! Watch. Watch. Watch. Please, don’t miss!

Ten Days in the Valley (10:00 PM on ABC)
Pilot. Kyra Sedgwick makes a welcome return to TV in this action packed pilot. She’s playing a former documentary filmmaker who exposed corruption on the police force and now serves as the showrunner for a fictional cop show. Throw into the mix a bitter divorce, custody issues, illicit affairs, and an abduction for a tension-filled first episode.
