All of your favorite shows are finally returning! With fall TV premieres in full swing, you’ll need to figure out your new viewing schedule. Tuesday nights are packed with options this year.
Fox has your comedy needs covered. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” returns to find Jake (Andy Samberg) and Holt (Andre Braugher) in the witness protection program in the Season 4 premiere. Then, “New Girl” Season 6 will find Schmidt (Max Greenberg) and CeCe (Hannah Simone) looking for a house together. Meanwhile, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) will be trying to distract herself from thinking about Nick (Jake Johnson) by throwing herself into some interesting hobbies.
If you prefer a little blood with your comedy, “Scream Queens” comes next. Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) is now in charge of a hospital, and the Chanels will be working there. They’ll run into some attractive new doctors, played by John Stamos and Taylor Lautner. However, it’s just a matter of time until the killing starts again.
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4 will also be getting violent as it moves to its new 10 p.m. EDT timeslot. The ABC drama will introduce Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) in the season premiere, and he’ll find trouble when he butts heads with Daisy (Chloe Bennet), who has gone rogue.
Legal dramas are also going to make a big splash on Tuesday. “NCIS” Season 14 kicks off on CBS to find Gibbs (Mark Harmon) searching for someone to replace Tony (Michael Weatherly). As the hunt for a new agent continues, an investigation connects to Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama), an NCIS agent who disappeared during an undercover mission.
The “NCIS: New Orleans” team has drama of their own. Pride (Scott Bakula) and the team are the subject of an FBI investigation. Special Agent Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito) will be looking into them.
“NCIS” fans who are missing Michael Weatherly won’t have to wait long to see him. His new drama, “Bull,” will premiere on CBS as well, right in between the two franchise shows. Weatherly plays Dr. Jason Bull, a man who analyzes the psychology of juries and witnesses to assist legal teams.
That’s not the only new program premiering. NBC will debut “This is Us,” a story that links the lives of six adults who share a birthday. The series, which features Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley and Emmy Award winner Sterling K. Brown in the ensemble cast, is said to be the next “Parenthood.” In other words, make sure you keep the tissues nearby.
Of course, there is something for reality fans too. “Bad Girls Club” Season 16 will also be known as “Bad Girls Club: Social Disruption.” All of the cast members have a following on social media.
