Most of the fall TV shows have already premiered, but we still have a couple of stragglers. Two CW favorites -- “Hart of Dixie” and “Beauty And The Beast” -- return for new seasons on Monday, Oct. 7, while the rest of the fall shows continue on.
For new TV, the night kicks off at 8 p.m. on the CW with the season 3 premiere of “Hart of Dixie.” The fun continues on the network when “Beauty and the Beast” returns for a second season on a brand new night.
