Katy Keene NEW Watchlist Added
A spin-off of The CW’s popular teen-centric series Riverdale, Katy Keene follows four iconic Archie Comics characters, including Ashleigh Murray’s singer/songwriter Josie McCoy, as they try to make it in New York City. Josie is joined on this journey by the show’s eponymous leading lady, fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), as well as performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and “It Girl” Pepper Smith (Julia Chan).
Brooklyn Nine-Nine Watchlist Added
The Nine-Nine lives to make Die Hard references another day. The beloved sitcom returns for Season 7 — its second on NBC — with a Season 8 renewal already under its belt, meaning fans won’t have to worry about the show’s future and will instead be free to worry about Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), who was demoted to patrol officer at the end of Season 6. Maybe a heist will lift his spirits.
Young Sheldon Watchlist Added
Spin-off of “The Big Bang Theory” follows 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper as he grows up in East Texas and attends high school.
The Unicorn Watchlist Added
Justified star Walton Goggins has left the world of prestige cable dramas behind to star in The Unicorn, CBS’s new comedy about a widower who, with the help of his friends and family, is attempting to move on following the most difficult year of his life. That includes being an ill-equipped but devoted single parent to his two daughters, and taking the first steps back into the world of dating where, to his shock, he’s a hot commodity.
The Sinner Watchlist Added
The third installment of USA’s crime anthology finds Det. Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) investigating a new case where the suspect can’t remember what happened. This season, the amnesiac is played by Matt Bomer, whose character has no memory of the events surrounding a terrible car crash that he was behind the wheel for. He has secrets he would do anything to keep hidden, but they’re coming back to haunt him in the form of Chris Messina, who is extraordinarily creepy as an old schoolmate. Expect unpredictable twists, shocking violence, and a whole lot of ambient menace lurking in the woods of upstate New York.
Indebted NEW Watchlist Added
Fran Drescher, Adam Pally, Steven Weber, Abby Elliott, and Jessy Hodges star in Indebted, a new comedy series following young parents Dave (Pally) and Rebecca (Elliott) whose lives are changed when Dave’s parents (Drescher and Weber) reveal they’re broke and need a place too live.
Carol’s Second Act Watchlist Added
Patricia Heaton stars as the eponymous character, who after raising her two children and retiring from teaching, embarks on a unique second act: pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor. Kyle MacLachlan, Ito Aghayere, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, and Sabrina Jalees also star
Briarpatch NEW Watchlist Added
USA continues dipping its toes into weird, prestige television via Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, who serves as executive producer on the anthology crime series Briarpatch. Based on the 1984 Ross Thomas novel of the same name, Briarpatch stars Rosario Dawson as an investigator who returns to her Texas bordertown home after her sister is murdered, and won’t leave until she solves the crime. It’s stylish as all heck, with neo-noir and pulpy detective work setting the tone, and definitely one to look out for this winter.
Tommy NEW Watchlist Added
Edie Falco stars in Tommy as a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female chief of police for Los Angeles. Using unflinching honesty and hardball tactics, she’ll navigate social, political and national security issues while enforcing the law with her unique style.

MacGyver Watchlist Added
Season 4 of the CBS procedural will look a lot different from its previous three seasons, with the exits of Jack Dalton (via a disgruntled George Eads) and Charlie Robinson (via fatal explosion). But the show’s drama will be bolstered with Season 3’s late addition of Mason (Peter Weller), a so-called “bad” MacGyver-type who forces the good MacGyver to make painful choices that usually involve lots of death.

Hawaii Five-0 Watchlist Added
An elite police task force in Hawaii headed by a decorated naval officer probes high-level crimes. The series is a reboot of the classic Jack Lord crime drama of the 1970s.

Homeland Watchlist Added
After delays, the final adventures of manic CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) will see the light of day in 2020, almost two years after the prior season. We’re hoping it’s worth the wait, and the set-up sounds like it will be: Saul (Mandy Patinkin) summons Carrie, fresh off being taken prisoner by the Russians, to Afghanistan to help him broker peace with the Taliban. As usual, we’re not sure that’s a great idea, Saul.
Kidding Watchlist Added
Dave Holstein’s som-com (somber-comedy) Kidding returns for a second season after a vastly underrated first. The series stars Jim Carrey in a tailor-made role for him: Mr. Pickles, a (nearly) indomitable host of a children’s show whose belief in all that is pure is rocked by personal tragedy and the cracking world around him. In Season 2, Mr. Pickles’ show (and merchandising opportunities) is in danger, but it’s more of his personal troubles and the pressure from…
