Fall TV Poll: What Will You Watch on Mondays?

Get More: Polls

The Fall TV season will be here before you know it, and tough viewing choices arrive with it. We’ve decided the time to get thinking about them is now.

Each day this week, TVLine will show you the grid for that night’s fall line-up, including the broadcast networks’ wares and select cable listings. You then vote for what you plan to watch LIVE during each time slot (since live/live-ish viewership is still the creme de la creme when it comes to ratings, whether anyone likes it or not).

RELATED | TVLine’s Handy Fall TV Grid: Your Guide to What Will Be on When, and Versus What

One last caveat before we get to the polls: This is not a popularity contest. Organizing a robo-vote for a certain show will not get Stana Katic or Alex O’Loughlin to playfully handcuff you. So have faith in the merit of your individual choices, then watch to see how many others legitimately line up aside you.

NOTES ABOUT THE MONDAY GRID: Grids represent the face-offs taking place for at least six weeks of the fall TV season; that’s why, for example, Secret Life (which finales Sept. 3) isn’t included. Details on new shows (indicated in RED) can be found at these links: Major Crimes, The Mob Doctor, Partners, Perception, Revolution.

      • 100% with Elaine. Watched both Bones ans Castle from episode one, but I am JUST getting through the two seasons of Hawaii Five-0 and the Danno-Steve bromance beats the hell out of any Caskett of Booth-Brennan romance, I tell ya <3 I'm totally IN LOVE. I had no idea I'd ever like, let alone LOVE a remake, but here I am, totally obsessed! :D

  • I’m probably gong to watch HIMYM live, just so I can skip past commercials when I watch Bones afterwards. My Mondays are a lot less full without my weekly hour of House. *sob*

    Comment by Babybop – June 11, 2012 08:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Watch HIMYM live. Then watch commercial-free Bones on the dvr. Then watch commercial-free 2 Broke Girls on the dvr. I’ll check out Revolution, too, but I’m almost certain that show won’t last long…but we’ll see.

        • Ha, no kidding.
          It’ll be “Dancing” night in our household come the fall season. Then we’ll flip to whatever happens to be on some other channel until “The Daily Show” comes on.

          Comment by Angela – June 11, 2012 09:22 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Only thing wrong with this poll is that you can’t choose two. I have every intention of watching both “Castle” AND “Revolution”, I’ll just have to dvr one of them.

    Comment by Dee Dee – June 11, 2012 08:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agreed, Monday at 10 is rather full, as I also like to watch Hawaii Five-0. It’s not a ‘must watch’ but it’s still a pretty good hour. I am going to have to watch one, DVR one and then later in the week (probably Wednesday when there is absolutely nothing worth watching on) watch Five-0 On Demand.

      Comment by Tim – June 11, 2012 08:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s why the poll specifies which will you watch ‘live.’ Those ratings numbers hold more clout than DVR or streaming numbers.

      Comment by Irishgirl – June 11, 2012 08:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I had a hard time picking between Castle and Revolution as well. But went for Castle and will DVR Revolution.

      Comment by Leigh – June 12, 2012 07:51 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I will try to watch the show that I picked “live” just so it can get the ratings that it needs. I picked “Warehouse 13″. I will watch “How I met your Mother” at the end of the season in hopes that they finally pick the Mother (I think that they have been dragging it out for too long).

    • If you aren’t a Neilsen household (or some other ratings service) what you watch won’t make a difference.

      Comment by CJ – June 11, 2012 09:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Thank you. I don’t think many people in the TV watching audience get this. Boycotting a show or network or watching one show over the other means nothing if you aren’t a Nielsen household so you won’t affect the ratings, so it’s useless. Just watch what you want regardless of your feelings about the network.

        Comment by Chris Siciliano – June 11, 2012 09:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Question – I know, no Nielsen box = no rating; BUT, what’s with the DVR numbers? They count DVR viewership within 7 days of first broadcast. So, is it better to watch on DVR than it is to watch live when you have no Nielsen box? I’m never quite sure how that works.

        Comment by meleliot – June 11, 2012 12:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • DVR ratings don’t matter if you don’t have a Neilsen box either. If a ratings service has not contacted you and provided you with monitoring equipment, you aren’t being counted–watched live, taped, downloaded, DVRed–none of it matters without the ratings box.

          Comment by CJ – June 11, 2012 01:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Thanks CJ. I guess it really doesn’t matter what I watch or when I watch it, and no one (especially TPTB) care what I think. Ah well, nothing new…

  • I love CSI Miami i can’t believe is not on if they didn’t put it on on Sun. nights it would still be on that killed the ratings cause of the games it came on so late i dvr it and watched another time alse i thought Unforgetable was great what happen to that ??????

    Comment by Georgia Pellegrino – June 11, 2012 08:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • CSI Miami was killed because it was too expensive, and Unforgettable was killed because it didn’t have enough young viewers.

    • Both of those shows were cancelled because their fans didn’t know how to use punctuation to make their writing comprehensible.

        Comment by Ayana – June 11, 2012 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • It should matter. I can’t take anyone seriously if they lack the ability to form a coherent sentence. It’s something you learn to do when you’re 12. I can forgive a lack of capitalization, commas, apostrophes, etc. but if you sound like a cokehead, someone should take your internet away.

        • Ayana, you are killing me! Of course it matters. What was the point of going to school and learning correct punctuation and grammar if not to be able to put a sentence together so others are able to grasp what the heck you’re talking about. Frankly, if I have to struggle to understand a simple comment due to the lack of proper writing skills, I do not finish reading it, and consider you a moron.

        • It is a simple truth. If you sound stupid people will think you are stupid. I don’t care if you have two doctorate degrees and got a perfect score on your SATs. If you write like an idiot I will assume you are one and instantly discount every thing you say or do.

  • I’ll be watching How I Met Your Mother and Revolution and Perception (if it turns out to be good) live. I will be DVRing Major Crimes and The Voice. The Voice so I can fast forward the boring parts, Major Crimes because my daughter wants to watch it, but she can’t stay up that late because she has to get up early for work.

  • Bones is so going to get cancelled, after this season ! :(……

    Comment by Sherry – June 11, 2012 08:51 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Maybe “Bones” will be cancelled after next season (#8), maybe it won’t.
      Either way, hitting the 8th season mark is a HUGE accomplishment for any television series.
      A lot of the cult or buzz-inducing shows are cancelled after 13 eps. Some are considered fortunate to hit season 5 (and syndication). Few shows go beyond 5 seasons.
      “Bones” could end after a rather impressive 8 years run – why complaining? Or are you faking the “sadness”, hoping for a cancellation, in the ol’ schadenfraude manner?

  • With Revolution, either it will end up a disappointing show, or cancelled after the first season. There is no possibility it will have a satisfying conclusion on NBC.

    • Sad but true. I have no idea how USA and SyFy get such good shows, while NBC gets all the crap. They’re all owned by the same company, so how’d that work? Maybe the idiots who contract all the crappy SyFy original movies and changed the name from Sci-Fi to SyFy are the guys who pick all the shows for NBC. Harry’s Law should have gone to USA.

      Comment by ChynnaBlue – June 11, 2012 09:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I definitely agree about Harry’s Law on USA, and they shouldn’t have made all the changes they made during the second season. That ruined the show for me.

    Comment by Emily – June 11, 2012 09:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • As I don’t watch anything “Live” anymore, I picked the shows that will watch first. I will record “HIMYM”, “Partners” and “Bones”, and I will definately watch the CBS sitcoms first. Since many of us have DVRs, maybe the question next question should be “Which 2 shows will you be recording?”

Still dont know why they r investing on steve and Cath. I like the show but they really needs to invest on a better storyline plots. Revolution looks good and there alot of fight scenes and actions.

      • As much as I want that to happen, it probably won’t. Emmy voters are pretty biased against procedurals like Bones, Castle, NCIS just to name a few. Emily Deschanel deserved a nomination or two in my opinion when the show was in its hey-day but she never got it. Stana is well worthy of one for some of her acting this season (I didn’t enjoy this season as much as the third but I blame that on the writers rather than the actor who can only do so much with what they’re given with) but I just don’t see a nomination going her way.

    • It sounds like NBC is trying to counterprogram a serialized drama against procedurals. It might work on me because, while I watch both shows, they’re both terribly overrated and I prefer a well-executed story over the same old follow-the-breadcrumbs plots lacking any kind of variety. NBC doesn’t want to win the night, it just can’t against Castle no matter what they put there. But if they can build a sizable audience with the right demographics, that’s good enough.

  • Seriously these polls are laughable, H50 won every night except one or two weeks, in the all important demo range. With out DWTS, Castle viewers and demo plunge. Rapid fans keep voting and make certain shows look like gang busters, but it all comes down to the almighty demos, and H50 is the number 1 10:00 show, like it or not.
