Tuesday nights have a pretty big schedule of returning shows and at least 2 of the most buzzed about new shows will be running on Tuesday. Old faithfuls like NCIS, and NCIS: NO, “new classics” like Agents of Shield, IZombie, Chicago Fire, Fresh from the Boat and The Flash will be returning to their regular scheduled times. Tuesdays have a pretty good lineup of new shows to choose from, including as I said 2 of the most talked about new shows: Scream Queens on FOX and my personal NEW SHOW OBSESSION…the all new Muppets Show on ABC.
Of all the returning shows on Tuesday, I really only watch 2 of them with any real frequency…NCIS and NCIS:NO. On NCIS, I love me some Gibbs so I got to find out how he has changed since being shot. NCIS: NO…once he got over trying to get Scott Bakula to have that perfect Cajun accent…I actually enjoyed the show…not enough to watch it LIVE, but enough so that both it and the original NCIS are DVR staples for Tuesday.
On Tuesday Night, there are no less than 9 new shows premiering across the major broadcast nets and cable nets. I won’t go into depth on all of them, but you can check out the EW Fall TV Grid if you are interested in learning more about the shows I won’t mention, Entertainment Weekly Fall Tv Show Schedule Grid. The shows I’ll be mentioning are the ones that I’ve seen the most buzz about. So…let’s go…
Best Time Ever…Neil Patrick Harris…doing what NPH does best?
Nope its some sort of AFHV/BestWeekEver/Punked/CandidCamera…basically a bunch of nothing. I’d rather see him do the usual NPH shuffle…this hodge podge show… No interest at all. I usually love NPH, but yeah…naw…sorry Dougie…
Next up two new sitcoms I’ve been eyeing. Both of which star 2 of the members of the “Bish Don’t Age” club… both on FOX, and of course both on Tuesday…The Grinder and Grandfathered.
First up, The Grindr, starring Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. I like Fred Savage (although I like his brother Ben better)…NOT a Rob Lowe fan (Bish don’t age…ugh). Saw a preview or two for this show and it really looks painfully unfunny. the premise of the show sounds completely unfunny…did Fox just need to add some comedy to its line up or something? cause this is time-wasting filler if you ask me.
Coming after Grinder is Grandfathered, starring Uncle Jessie himself, John Stamos. To be honest, I really don’t have high hopes for this show. It essentially looks like 30 minutes of folks looking at John Stamos and thinking, “how can he be a grandfather…bish don’t age”…that will get old fast. But I decided to give it one chance based solely on this promo video starring real life grandparents reacting to John Stamos being a grandfather. The promo was honestly funnier than the preview trailer I saw. So..it’s gets a position on my DVR queue. Sorry Rob Lowe.
There are a few more new shows premiering on Tuesdays (such as Limitless, based on the movie of the same name), but there is really only 2 new shows on Tuesday, that will be on my must watch list. The aforementioned Muppets Show on ABC and the new Ryan Murphy created vehicle Scream Queens. One of these shows I’ll watch LIVE, the other I’ll be watching on DVR at a later time in the week.
First up Scream Queens.
This show has 2 things going for it…1)Co-creator Ryan Murphy! I can honestly say that
the first season of Glee was really good. It seemed fresh and funny and modern. I’ve never actually watched America Horror Story, but even from afar, it looked pretty darn good (I’m just not much into horror films or tv). From promos, it seems to have the same funny, witty sensibilities Murphy is known for. 2)Jamie Lee Curtis…no reason why, but I just love her. Plus, love having the “grande dame” of horror flicks on a show like this. Secret weapons: Niecy Nash and Keke Palmer. Love both of these ladies, but especially the promo I’ve seen with Nash as the sassy, smart talking college security guard. All this to say..it looks like it could be good.
Finally, my most anticipated new show for Tuesday is definitely new Muppets Show on ABC. If you follow me at all on Facebook or Twitter or another blog I frequent, then you will know that last week I was obsessed with posting the video promos for the new muppets show. I really can’t wait. I made the mistake of reading an early review or two of the show, and they were less than glowing…but whatever. I have consistently laughed at the various promos for the show I’ve seen so far. And each new promo makes me giggle too (like this new promo for The Emmy awards: @MissPiggy and @KermitTheFrog get ready for the Emmys), so I’ll def be adding the show to my DVR queue and if not watching LIVE, I’ll def be watching later in the week. If you want to check out the promos videos for the new Muppet show on ABC, you can check out the ABC website for the show here: The Muppets Show on ABC
So there you have it…Tuesday are hopping with new blood and we still have 4 more days to go! Alright, what new Tuesday shows are you interested in or what returning shows are you looking forward to watching on Tuesday?

I am interested in the Muppets and Scream Queens. I love these posts, lamh. You are taking me back. I remember the times when I used to get that Fall TV Preview issue, and open up an Excel and map out my tv viewing – it was THAT serious for me..LOL
I also want to see Quantico.
I’m. it likely to watch Quantico, but I’ll def be following along with other folks who watch it. I’ll have to see. I wasn’t really on board with say Scandal or Greys Anatomy until people I know wouldn’t shut up about it, so I may give it an end of season chance later
Since I watch Law & Order reruns almost constantly (I’m also a grocery bag hoarder) I don’t get into many new or current shows, but I do eagerly await your take on Wednesday (“Nashville” addict here) and Thursday (Scandal and HTGAWM). Don’t mean to go OT or highjack. I’ll wait until Thursday to ask you if you were disappointed with Scandal last season.
And I hope your sister heals quickly.
thx….sister is doing okay. just waiting til Monday is a bummer for her. Short thoughts on Scandal, HTGAWM and Nashville, in order, def disappointed in last season, can’t wait for HTGAWM, and never really got into Nashville, but caught an ep and I am forever sorry I never got caught up into it. but it’s on my plans for binge watching if ever I have free time to
