My Planned Television Viewing Habits: Midseason 2016

Well, provided that I can publish this at a good time, I’m going to tell you about my planned viewing habits for the upcoming midseason part of this TV season. Hopefully watching things will work out as well as they do. If not, then I guess I’ll have to go without for certain shows. Remember that due to a TV tuner and a VCR, I can effectively watch three shows at once. But, I can’t do four or more. I will say that I am glad that I only have basic television that I get for free.

Here are the existing shows still on the schedule that I plan on continuing watching: The new fall shows that I was interested in and kept watching were Quantico, The Muppets, Code Black, Limitless, Supergirl, and Blindspot. I planned to watch Angel from Hell at least once but it was delayed to midseason. More on that later. Also, while not new, I have decided to watch Undateable as well. The CBS shows that I’m still watching are 60 Minutes, Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, CSI: Cyber, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, and Survivor. I also might watch the upcoming final season of Mike and Molly. The ABC shows that I’m still watching are Once Upon a Time, Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Modern Family. When it works out in my schedule, I will also watch The Middle, The Goldbergs, Shark Tank and 20/20. The CW shows that I’m still watching are Jane the Virgin, The Flash, iZombie, and Reign. The NBC shows that I’m still watching are Law and Order: SVU, The Blacklist, and Grimm. When it works out, I’ll also watch Dateline. The FOX shows that I’m still watching are The Last Man on Earth, Family Guy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sleepy Hollow, Bones, The Simpsons, and Gotham. I hope that I mentioned everything for this section.

Here are the returning shows not on the schedule until midseason that I plan on watching: Person of Interest, The 100, New Girl, Masters of Illusion, Hollywood Game Night, Marvel’s Agent Carter, and Whose Line it is Anyways? If some of them aren’t on again until summertime, then I’ll wait to watch them until then.

Here are the new midseason shows that I plan on watching: One of the planned fall shows was delayed until midseason. Two of them, actually. Of Kings and Prophets was delayed along with Angel from Hell. I have them both predicted as cancelled, but we’ll see if that happens. And I’m almost certain that I will not like Angel from Hell anyways. I still plan on watching them both. Anyways, the other new midseason shows that I plan on watching are Rush Hour, The Family, Shades of Blue, Emerald City, Second Chance, Lucifer, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, Legends of Tomorrow, and Boardertown. Of course, it all depends on what interests me and what potentially fits in the schedule. I could easily end up watching shows that I didn’t know would have interested me at first and I might not watch other shows that might have interested me at a different point. It all depends on what works.

Here are the fall shows that I watched that aren’t on at midseason: The Player, Minority Report, and Best Time Ever. The first two have unofficially been cancelled. The third may return in the future but could be cancelled as the rest of them.

Here are the fall shows that I watched once but weren’t interested in seeing again: Life in Pieces and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I didn’t originally plan on watching Truth be Told, but I did. And, I won’t be watching that again. It will probably get cancelled anyways.

That’s pretty much all I can think of telling you about what will happen with my potential midseason viewing schedule. You’ll find out later my thoughts on these shows when I review them. We’ll also see if any other shows get watched by me that I didn’t originally plan on.
