It’s been kind of a long summer, TV-wise. Cable has offered its usual array of pleasures, but unless you’re into “Big Brother” or “America’s Got Talent,” the network pickings have been typically slim.
That’s all about to change, though. The broadcast nets have already started rolling out a few series, and the big crush starts Monday (Sept. 19). A dozen new shows and more than 30 returning series will all debut by the end of primetime on Sunday, Sept. 25, and still more premieres are set for October and even November.
We’ve already offered our opinions on the best new shows and potential breakout stars, and now we want to hear from you. The question is simple: Which returning series are you most excited to welcome back to your screens?
The list in the poll below is, admittedly, subjective. We’ve chosen three shows from each of the five broadcast networks that have devoted (and mobilized) fan bases. (We also left out shows that have already premiered.) But if you don’t see your favorite among the choices, please give a write-in vote in the poll and let us know in the comments.
