    Gotham
    Sleepy Hollow
    Under the Dome

    Sometime this week

    The Blacklist
    Scorpion(I think this will be big for CBS)

    I expect The Blacklist to pull at least a 3.4, Under the Dome will uptick a few tenths to perhaps a 2.1. And Forever will likely be mid 1s. CBS and NBC have a very strong lineup tonight.

    • herman1959 says:

      Monday is going to be a great night for television!

      • Moment says:

        Yep, what with Castle and NCIS LA premiering at 10pm next Monday among other shows. It’s going to be a hugely competitive night. Possibly the most competitive night of the season as far as TV goes. I just hope Fox does well on Mondays, so we at least get a Season 3 of Sleepy Hollow, and perhaps a Gotham renewal.

        • leena says:

          Fox is pretty stupid when it comes to alienating fans and deciding what to renew, but I can’t see them cancelling Gotham after one season. They’re stupid enough to cancel Sleepy Hollow though.

        • Lore says:

          Yes, dont forget The Originals from CW, and cable shows like Switched at birth and The Fosters when the show come back, mondays are gonna be crazy

          • Moment says:

            Yes sorry, it’s difficult to list everything.

            @leena

            Fox did mention that Sleepy Hollow was an expensive series for them, which reflected in the episode count. I would assume that it may be in danger if it drops below a 2 or might have a reduced episode count. It’s hard to say but I’m hoping both shows do well and get renewed.

  2. Justin says:

    The Big Bang Theory
    Scorpion

  5. kirads09 says:

    Scorpion
    Blacklist

    Catch up on later:
    Sleepy Hollow
    Under the Dome

    Not going to get invested in Gotham as Fox will probably cancel it after 1 season – on a cliffhanger if it stays true to form. :-/

  6. Fran says:

    The Voice: season 7*

  7. Jenna says:

    So excited for:
    Sleepy Hollow
    Gotham
    The Blacklist

    I’ve seen the Forever pilot, and will catch a new episode tomorrow in its regular time slot.
    TBBT and Scorpion I’ll watch online tomorrow.

  8. herman1959 says:

    Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, and The Blacklist, although 3 hours of live TV is too much for me. I’ll probably catch Gotham on Hulu tomorrow.

  9. auntiemm says:

    Cut between Pirate game and Big Bang Theory, Scorpion and Forever (this one sounds like a vampire-less Forever Knight). Blacklist for later.

  10. Matthew Weber says:

    TBBT and Gotham.

    Next Monday will be epic. Castle is back, NCIS LA is going to be good. I’m so glad fall TV is back.

  11. Joey Padron says:

    Gotham, Under The Dome, and The Tonight Show. DVR The Blacklist.

  23. jp says:

    everything except the Voice Actor’s studio and Dallas. Plus remember Dancing with the Stars is one tonight and tomorrow. It’s going to be a busy fall tv season!

  24. cdhaskell says:

    I can’t wait to see the debut of Gotham. I know that it will be a winner.

  25. Gwen says:

    We just upgraded to a record-up-to-five-shows-at-once DVR just for nights like tonight!!

  26. Autumn says:

    Gotham and Forever. I already watched the premiere of Forever and loved it. I hope people give it a chance! Very entertaining and actually a pretty good pilot.

  27. cdhaskell says:

    I agree and I love both Gotham and Forever. I hope that both will be renewal real soon.

  28. Aprilcot says:

    Gotham
    Sleepy Hollow
    The Blacklist

  29. cdhaskell says:

    Thank god for on demand,dvr and vcr to help the fan to keep up with all the new show.

  32. Steve T says:

    Not watching another show on Fox after they cancelled Almost Human. Too many times I have invested in a show on Fox only to have them cancel it.

  33. Eric says:

    Gotham, Big Bang and Scorpion tonight. Still catching up on season 1 of The Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow, but I’ll watch tonight’s eps immediately after I’ve finished. Might also check out Forever if I hear good things.

    • herman1959 says:

      Good plan because you’ll be lost if you watch The Blacklist season premiere before watching all of the previous episodes. Even though the show is a procedural, the continuing Red/Liz relationship is key.

  34. Jana says:

    The Voice
    Gotham
    Sleepy Hollow
    Scorpion
    The Blacklist

  35. LAwoman says:

    MNF
    Big Bang Theory
    DVR DWTS

  36. cdhaskell says:

    I can’t wait to learn who will win the battle of the DVR and on the demand battle.

  37. Angela says:

    First hour of “Dancing” live, then recording the rest and flipping over to see “Sleepy Hollow”. SO happy to have that show back, finally! I know my mom’s anxious to find out what happens on “Dallas”, too.
    Am kind of intrigued by “Gotham”, but I think FOX will repeat that later this week, so I might catch it then.

  38. Ali says:

    Live:
    The Big Bang Theory
    Sleepy Hollow
    The Blacklist

    DVR:
    Gotham
    Scorpion
    Rewatching the last episode of Doctor Who…again. :)

  39. Skittles&Bits says:

    Wow. For the first time I’m wishing I owned DVR.
    Gotham
    Sleepy Hallow
    Scorpion
    The Blacklist
    Forever**

    **I’m iffy on this one. Ioan Gruffurd is great but the premise seems overdone. I want to give it a few more episodes.

  40. cdhaskell says:

    I am glad that I have TWC have on demand when I am able to up with all the Monday show later on the week. Thank heaven,we got dvr and on demand.
