"Revolution" - Premieres Monday, Sept. 17 at 10 p.m. on NBC

Miss "Lost?" Then you will want to catch J.J. Abrams new series, "Revolution." NBC takes viewers to a post-apocalyptic future where no electricity exists. The survivors must try to find out what happened to the technology that used to rule their world, and attempt to bring it back.

"The Mindy Project" - Premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9:30 p.m. on Fox

Think of "The Mindy Project" like Kelly Kapoor of "The Office" joins "Scrubs." Mindy Kaling, who played Kapoor on "The Office," stars as a single woman trying to juggle her career as a OBGYN with her insane love life. Expect some guest appearances from SNL alum Bill Hader and former "Office" co-star Ed Helms.

"Elementary" - Premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. on CBS

CBS has a new mystery on its hands. "Elementary" is a modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock in this case is a NYPD consultant who is a recovering addict. The shows switches it up by casting Watson as a woman (Lucy Liu to be exact), who is Sherlock's "sober companion."

"Guys With Kids" - Premieres Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8:30 p.m. on NBC

Produced by Jimmy Fallon, a full-length sneak peek of this new show definitely brought the laughs. Jesse Bradford ("Swimfan"), Anthony Anderson ("Law & Order") and Zach Cregger ("The Whitest Kids U'Know") star as three dads living in the same apartment building and trying to deal with the struggles of parenting. 

The early preview episode had viewers laughing with Cregger's "Titanic" reenactment, Anderson's stay-at-home dad gripes and Bradford's encounter with his ex-wife's date...Karim Abdul-Jabbar.

"Last Resort" - Premieres Thursday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. on ABC

What happens when a U.S. missile submarine refuses to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan? "Last Resort" gives viewers an idea when a radio channel that is only to be used if their homeland has been destroyed, informs the submarine to attack Pakistan. Asking for confirmation on their grave orders, the White House instead relieves the submarine of their duties, and the crew is hit by fire weapons. As their homeland declares the crew of the submarine rogue enemies, the captain attempts to save his crew by bringing them to an exotic island. The crew will learn to survive on the island as they attempt to clear their names.

"666 Park Avenue" - Premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10 p.m. on ABC

New York City will get a little spooky this fall. "666 Park Avenue" is about a Midwestern couple who become the resident managers of an Upper East Side apartment building. What the new managers don't know is that the residents of the apartment building have some major secrets...they all made deals with the devil to fulfill their deepest desires. 

"Arrow" - Premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. on the CW

Fan of all the recent superhero movies like "Captain America," "Thor," and "The Avengers" won't want to miss the CW's new superhero show, "Arrow." With the success of their long running series "Smallville," "Arrow" is the perfect replacement show for superhero fans. 

"Arrow" follows the life of crime-fighter the Green Arrow, who is actually Queen, a wealthy playboy. Queen's life gets turned upside down when a boating accident kills his father and his girlfriend's sister (who he was having an affair with), and leave him abandoned on an island for five years. Surviving with his archery skills, Queen eventually returns to civilization, and channels the Green Arrow to clear the family name, and revenge his father's death. Stephen Amell of "The Vampire Diaries," "Heartland," and "Private Practice" stars alongside "Melrose Place" and "Gossip Girl" star Katie Cassidy. 

"Chicago Fire" - Premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. on NBC

Think Lady Gaga's beau Taylor Kinney is a total smoke show? So did NBC, because Kinney, formerly of "The Vampire Diaries" will be heating up the screen as a firefighter part of Chicago's firehouse 51. Kinney stars alongside "House M.D." star Jesse Spencer, "The Good Wife" actress Monica Raymund and "Hawaii Five-O" star Lauren German. If your a fan of "Law & Order" or "Rescue Me," this is a show you won't want to miss. 

"Nashville" - Premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. on ABC

Former "American Horror Story" star Connie Britton stars in "Nashville" as Rayna James, a country singer whose career is fading along with her age. The country singer gets a real slap in the face when her record company has her opening for a new teen singer, Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere). "Nashville" definitely brings some southern drama to the stage with some steamy hookups and election drama. 

"Malibu Country" - Premieres Friday, Nov. 2 at 8:30 p.m. on ABC

Missed the show "Reba?" Well it's pretty much returning under a new name, new town and a couple new friends. Reba McEntire plays Reba, a woman who leaves her husband after learning that he has cheated on her. Reba moves from Nashville to Malibu where she begins new adventures with her mom (Lily Tomlin) and her new neighbor (Sara Rue).
