Debuts and Premieres: September 17-23 – And A New Poll Too!

Just for the sake of this series of postings, Debuts refers to season debuts for older shows, while Premieres refers to new series. Just to flash things up a bit, new shows will be in Red. (Times are Eastern – adjust appropriately).

September 17th

  • Deal or no Deal (NBC) 8 p.m.
  • Prison Break (FOX) 8 p.m.
  • K-VILLE (FOX) 9 p.m.

September 18th

  • Beauty and the Geek (CW) 8 p.m.

September 19th

    (CBS) 8 p.m.
  • America's Next Top Model (CW) 8 p.m.
  • BACK TO YOU (FOX) 8 p.m.
  • Til' Death (FOX) 8:30 p.m.
    (FOX) 9 p.m.
  • GOSSIP GIRL (CW) 9 p.m.

September 20th

  • Survivor: China 9 p.m.

September 21st

  • Friday Night Smackdown (CW) 8 p.m.

September 23rd

  • CW NOW (CW) 7 p.m.
  • ONLINE NATION (CW) 7:30 p.m.
  • The Simpsons (FOX) 8 p.m.
  • King of the Hill (FOX) 8:30 p.m.
  • Cold Case (CBS) 9 p.m.
  • Family Guy (FOX) 9 p.m.
  • Shark (CBS) 10 p.m.

Now here's the poll question: Which of the new series premiering this week will be cancelled first? I'm going to include being put on indefinite hiatus as being cancelled – these shows can be like zombies and spontaneously resurrect but for most of them dead is dead and they get even worse ratings than they did the first time they showed up. Note that there's a "None" category just in case you think that all of these shows will get an order to finish the season (actually I may cut Kitchen Nightmares some slack on this since I don't think it was meant to go more than 13 episodes based on the original Fox schedule). Wouldn't that be a shocker!

As usual feel free to comment or bloviate here (bloviate being one of the great words in the English language, even if I sometimes – sometimes?! – engage in it too much). I'll end this one next Monday.

Update: I had old information about the premiere date of Gossip Girl. I've changed it here, but I can't change the poll so I'll have it on the list for next week. Thanks to Annie in Comments for the information The debuts that Annie mentioned for Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters is a bit misleading though. These are recap episodes of the past season of both shows; new episodes in terms of content and story lines start on September 30.
